It can get in through the timing cover. That does car does not have a "timing belt" cover, but it has a "timing chain cover." There is a BIG difference, as a timing belt cover does not have coolant and oil running through it, but a timing chain cover does have both coolant and oil running through it.

Do you have to change the water pump when you change the timing belt on a 2005 Elentra GLS?

No, but you should, every second timing belt. All the same labor is required to change either part, and the cost of changing the timing belt or water pump is almost entirely labor cost. "While we're in there" is actually legitimate in this case.

How do you replace the water pump on a 2000 Mazda Protege?

You have to take off the serpentine belts so that you can remove the pulley for the water pump. You also have to take off the cam head so that you can get to the timing belt case and remove the plastic splash guards in front of the water pump. Remove the timing belt, then there are 4 bolts attaching the water pump. Remove those bolts and then disconnect the water intake and put your new pump in and replace the timing belt. **Make sure that your timing marks are located where they need to be before replacing the timing belt.**

Ignition timing is not adjustable. Cam timing is adjustable by the "guess" method unless you are replacing the timing belt and using the timing marks on the belt drive cogs, in which case you need a repair manual that has detailed instructions.

When timing belt breaks in operation does it cause engine damage?

Generally if the timing belt breaks, it will not do damage apart from the cam, etc. being out of time. However, if the belt streches thru wear and slips on timing, this can do serious damage, such as beding rods and valves. Sometimes in this case if you are really lucky you can have a rod go through a piston, then you need a major rebuild.

How often to replace timing belt on a 1997 2.0 VW Golf?

Timing belt manufacturers recommend replacing timing belts every 60,000 miles. In the case of a volkswagon I would never exceed that milage. The water pumps on volkswagon engines have plastic impellars, and they are very prone to failure. I have seen them fail at 50,000 miles on several occasions. The water pump is driven by the timing belt so both should be changed at the same time. EVERY TIME.

How do you realign the timing to reinstall the belt properly on a 1991 Nissan Pathfinder with a V6 after the cam and crank shafts moved while removing the timing belt?

every pulley has a mark on it that matches a notch on the inner timing belt/ oil pump cover, line up the white lines on the belt with these marks and that's it.. all 3 marks will line up belt-pulley-case.
