Every 80,XXX to 100,XXX miles and yes it is a good idea to replace the water pump, if the pump fails it will take out the water pump.

get the #1 piston top dead center, then line up the camshaft gear and the crank gear to line up with the timing marks on the engine after you find those marks slip the belt on making sure all the timing marks havent changed then check to see if the tensioner for the belt is set with the proper tension then check to see if the belt isnt slipping remember it will be spinnig at high RPMS

SOURCE: My car has a leaky water pump and the mechanic

Around $800 at a dealership.
Water pumps should always be replaced together with the timing belt. I have the same car. Same engine and that's what multiple honda pros have told me.

On these vehicles, the timing belt is recommended at 90K!! I recommend replacing the T-belt and water pump at the same time. The water pump is timing belt driven, and if it fails, you would be paying for another Timing belt service!! YOU WILL NOT experience drive-ability issues because the belt is aged or has not been serviced at its recommended intervals. Instead, if the belt fails, your engine will fail, and will require replacement or rebuilt ($3500+ job). Find a less expensive reliable shop thats experienced in EURO vehicles, and stay away from the dealer!!

My car has a leaky water pump and the mechanic said they have to replace the timimg belt as well i have a 1995 honda accord v6 engine with over 200 and something miles


yes, you should have the timing belt changed every 80,000 mi. on a Honda. You got your use out the one from the factory, if that's how long you've owned your car.

A leaky water pump is common on Hondas with that much mileage.

When it rains it pours.

Don't worry, timing belts don't cost that much to replace. really they don't.

Coming up on 200,000 Km. What service should I


That is about 120, 000 miles, if you have not done already, you should change the timimg belt and while you are doing that it is a good idea to replace the water pump. You could change your transmission oil but not critical.

Go to www.FCPgroton.com and enter your make and year, then check under timing components. They sale a few different kits for this job. I would recommend doing the timimg belt, idler pulley, tensioner, water pump at serpentine belt at a minimum. you can check and see if you need to do the cam seals also one of their kits includes all these. I would only do those if they were leaking.
