C230 water pump replacement

I am not a mechanic and unfortunately I could not find a mechanic available to change the water pump until way late in the week; because I need the car, I need to change the pump myself this weekend. Bought a brand new pump and I have the necessary tools (I think) , I am also handy enough yet reluctant to start such project without some sort advice whether or not this is a DIY job, and mostly things I should be aware when undertaking such job.
Advice/pointers greatly appreciated. V

You can replace the water pump your self but plan on spendning
8 or more hours doing it I just did my C280 1995 water pump
Tehy did not have the original pump so I had to get a newer model one
and it had two extra outlets that I have to make covers and seals for so this was way beyond what I wanted to to but after making the extra parts it took 8 hours to change I ahd to remove allot of other parts to get access to bolts. Just take your time if you have a digital camer take pictures so you know how everything gose back together!. But plan on spending a whole day on it!

Unfortunately your going to have to access and remove water pump again until you find what is causing the leak. Possible gasket slipped , left over material or excessive pitting.

If the c230 has a misfire it may be a bad ecu or M.E. control unit. There is a company that can test it in Michigan.

I am trying to replace the water pump om my 1995 Mercedes C220 (Not a C230) How do I get the tensioner pulley to release the tension off the water pump pulley and serpentine belt so I can remove the fan...


TRY USING A BOX END WRENCH OR A SOCKET AND WRENCN TURN TENSIONER CENTER BOLT COUNTERCLOCK WISE TO UNLOAD TENSION WHILE SLIP BELT OFF THE ALTERNATOR.THAT WAY BELT WILL BE OUT THE WAY UNTIL YOU REPLACE WATER PUMP.WHEN DONE TURN TENSIONER CLOCKWISE WHILE SLIP DRIVE BELT BACK OVER THE ALTERNATOR.

2003 kia rio- water pumps


I would follow the mechanics recommedations. I think he's taliking about the cam and crankshaft seals. Yes the water pump should be replaced as well. The pump that sprays windshield washer fluid onto the windshield is called the windshield washer pump. The water pump is on the engine and pumps water (coolant/antifreeze) through the engine to the radiator and heater core.

This is most likely the bearing in the water pump is on the way out. If it is you should replace it before it fails as you could end up with a blown cylinder head gasket (expensive)

Time for service B on my 04 C230 is this more than an oil change?


during the b service you replace the a/c dust filter and perform the oil change. To reset turn key on and scroll with page buttons on steering shell until you see the odometer reading(normal).next scroll up with arrow keys until you see the service interval screen. There should be a black button on the cluster possibly imprinted with an "r" hold that button until the screen displays -do you want to reset service interval. Release button and press again. You must hold that button for approx. 10 seconds before it will ask if you want to reset. Hopefully I have been helpful

Merces benz c230 timing chain replacement procedure


so it takes some Pin pullers, or a litlte bit of messing around witth proper sized (heavy duty) bolt to pull the pins, i cannot seem to find the timing marks on mine once i got it offand want to put back on, i have a chilton and it doesnt help. if you buy the 100 -200 dolar shop manual from bentley it would probably be quite simple :)

pull, pins, timing cover, water pump, solenoid, etc. to get to timing cover, uppe and lower,pull valve cover, and loosen cam (exhaust side) to get chain off. :)

Does the Corolla 2003 model have a timming belt or chain?Does the water pump has to be changed at 70K miles? Thanks. Adrian


Adrian,

Until 2002 Toyota's had a timing belt. After 2002, Toyota's have a timing chain. Manufacturer/dealers recommend replacement of the timing chain at about 90,000 miles. I've talked to several mechanics - including the dealer - about the cost of changing out the chain. The lowest price I found from a very reputable mechanic is $260-270. He told me that if I brought in the part, he'd reduce the cost. The dealership was almost double!

Re: water pump: I haven't found anything that stated it must be changed at 70K miles. Hope this was helpful.
