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.**

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.

Actually you have to do quite the same when you replace your timing belt, but in this case you have remove second part of timing belt protection and timing belt gears to replace the water pump. Flush out the coolant. When you remove the last part of protection you will see water pump and tops of screws around it. Clean the engine around the water pump including the water pump. Just remove the water pump, clean the place where it goes. Use all new parts including the water pump gasket (except the screws of course), be extremely careful with the gasket. Tighten everything properly. Put every thing together. If you don't how to replace the timing belt I believe you can easily find information about it. Before you start, put your car in the parking breaks, disconnect the battery.

If the timing belt broke in a 2000 Mazda Protege 1.8 will the car be damaged?

A 2000 Mazda Protege with 1.8 DOHC engine appears to be a "free-running" engine, meaning there is no valve/piston interference in case the timing belt broke. There is enough clearance between the valve and piston, even if the cam stops (i.e. the timing belt breaks) with the valve fully open. Therefore, the car will not be damaged if the timing belt broke.

Does the 2005 Honda Civic ex have a timing chain?

The 2005 Honda Civic EX with the 1.7L engine has a timing belt, not a chain. The timing belt for this application will cost about $20-30, depending on brand. The manufacturer's suggested replacement interval is at 110,000 miles or 84 months. If the car is regularly driven in extreme temperatures, the belt should be replaced at 60,000 miles. In any case, it's a good idea to at least inspect the belt and related components (water pump, tensioner) at around 60K miles.

What can happen if timing belt not replaced in time?

if by "in time" you mean the timing, that can cause the car to have less power, increase fuel consumption and other things...But, if your vehicle has a timing belt, and that belt breaks while the car is in motion, - in short, it destroys the engine. Not completely, but the damage - parts and labor - is going to run into several thousands of dollars in a worst-case scenario. If you have a timing belt, and the manufacturer has a recommended replacement interval, don't cheat - it's way huge cheaper to have it replaced on time.

How do you change the water pump on a 1990 Toyota Camry and would that be making it run hot?

I would start with the thermostat first especially if your not leaking coolant or hearing strange noises. Would also need to know what engine you have. Some Toyota egines require that you remove the timing belt to access the water pump if this is the case your better off replacing the timing belt, crank case seal and tentioner pulleys if your there anyway. tech note there is a timing belt kit which contains most of these item. But I would definitely start with the thermostat. In most cases it can be located by following the largest upper hose connected to your radiator down to the engine. It usually lies right there within.
