Some water pumps are driven by the serpentine belt and are bolted on out in the open with the alternator and air compressor. Other water pumps are driven by the timing belt. These water pumps take a lot of labor to access and replace.This repair can be one of the larger expenses on your car.
All 300x168 water pumps are fairly easy devices that circulate engine coolant/antifreeze around the engine and out to the radiator. Like any mechanical device, they eventually wear out. Having a cooling system service done on schedule will extend the life of your water pump and its seals and gaskets – unfortunately, it will eventually fail and need to be replaced.
Timing belt driven water pumps are a pain - the timing belt system has an important protective cover and serpentine belts and accessories are located over the timing belt cover. So getting to the water pump requires the mechanic remove a large number of parts – which then need to be replaced.
When the water pump must be replaced, it is a good idea for you to go ahead and also replace the timing belt, timing belt tensioner and idler pulley for 2 reasons:
1. Because the timing belt may have been contaminated by leaking coolant
2. A schedule dictates replacing your timing belt and you should think of making the modest additional added expenditure while everything is taken apart to avoid the same labor cost later
