Yes, do them all @ once while you @ it to avoid later repair costs. It's what you're suppose to do.

1999 Gran Am water pump need to replace

I am hoping for you sake it is a v6 instead of a 4 cylinder, on the v6 you take off the belt then the water pump pulley on top closest to the front with 4 10mm bolts, then when the pulley is off you take off the 8mm bolts take off the pump clean off the old gasket material put the new gasket on the new pump and reverse the procedure. on the 4cylinder however it involves removing the timing chain cover the chain and a bit more

Terrible noise comming from the timming chain area, 1999 nissan sentra 2.0 dohc

Hopefully its only a bad water pump but it needs checked out by a qualified mech ASAP. If the chain/belt goes it will be costly to correct.

I need to remove the water pump on a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am. What is neccesary to remove the front timing chain cover? I have the instructions to remove the water pump, but it involves removing the front...

Just to clarify i asked what size motor was in his car. The reason for that statement that removing the timing cover ,chain and exhaust wasent required to change the water pump is that on 3.4 V6 engines none of that is required. To change the water pump in my car ( 99 grand am gt 3.4L) all you need to do is remove serpentine belt, remove the 4 bolts holding on the water pump pulley, then remove the 5 water pump retaining bolts and it out. Then you just need t remove any traces of the old gasket clean the surface put a new gasket on following it with the new water pump torque the 5 retaining bolts , water pump pulley torque its 4 bolts put the serpentine belt back on fill and bleed the coolant system and your done. All the work done easily from the top of the motor without any special tools. It took me a hour and a half. So there is a huge difference in changing water pumps on a 4 cylinder engine and a 6 cylinder engine this is why I asked what engine he had in his car.

Set timming inGOLF 1992

it sounds like the timing is out on the car, it needs to be exactly at TDC (top dead center) and do not move any of the fly wheels crankshaft wheels when timing chain/belt is off it may be that the timing chain is not tight enough

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