No I don't think you can change the timing belt without rotating your water pump because the water pump is what puts tension on the belt its self. You might be able to remove the idle pulley(not sure if name is correct) and use that as a way to get it off but i dont think you could really use that to get it back on the car.
no you do not have to change the timing chain when changing the water pump.
You do not have to change the timing belt to replace the water pump. You do have to remove the timing belt cover to be able to access the bolts that hold the water pump on.
You do not have to, but if the water pump is timing belt driven it is highly recommended.
THE WATER PUMP IS BEHIND THE TIMEING CHANGE TO THE RIGHT OF THE CAR IF YOU ARE FACING IT.YES YOU HAVE TO TAKE THE TIMING CHANGE OFF A MUST .YOU SHOULD THE TIMING CHANGE SINCE IT IS OFF.THE HOLE PROCESS IS NOT EASE AT ALL UNLESS YOU KNOW ABOUT TIMING CHANGE. how would i get detailed instructions on how to properly remove timing change so that i can remove the water pump
If you have timing chain it means that your water pump is connected to one of the belts. So the answer is no. But make sure that you have timing chain. Because if you have timing belt then the water pump is connected to the timing belt. And the latter one has to removed if you want to change the pump.
No, but it can be recommended on a system where the timing belt runs the water pump.
There is no timing belt. There is timing chain. You do not need to ever change it, they last. Except if you change smtg else around, like water pump.
The same way you change the timing belt. the water pomp runs off the timing belt. It,s a pain in the butt.
behind the timing cover you should change the timing belt when you change water pump.
Since you are already in there, it is best to replace that along with the tensioner, rollers, thermostat, coolant, and both timing and serpentine belts.
The water pump should be driven by the timing belt, yes. If you change the water pump, you might wanna change the timing belt and tensioner while you're in there.
the water pump is under the timing cover, if you replace the water pump, it is also a good time to change out the timing belt... Honda recomends changing water pumps when you change the timing belt...
Get a manual on your car from DISCOUNTAUTOREPAIRMANUALS.COM and it will answer all of your questions.
The water pump is driven by timing belt, so, replace the timing belt while you are replacing water pump, because you have to take off timing belt to get to water pump.
No, you do not have to replace the timing belt at the same time as the water pump. It is highly recommended because there is no additional labor involved since the timing belt must be removed to replace the water pump.
The water pump runs on the Timing Belt. There is no way to chage it without changing the Timing Belt. If it is leaking get it taken care of ASAP. If the water pump goes, it will take your timing belt with it, in turn possibly destroying the valves & Pistons. The problem worsens if in freezing weather and you continue to drive the car without putting 50/50 coolant/distilled water. Freezing water will in the cooling system will kill your engine!
The water pump is driven by the timing belt, so.....afraid not.
when changing the water pump it is also adviseable to change the timing belt as well.
You need to remove the timing belt before you even will able to access it. Thus, use the procedure how to change the timing belt, but without changing part. Replace the water pump, make sure that you replace the water pump gasket too.
It is behind the timing belt coves and you will have to take the timing belt off to change the water pump out
remove timing chain
Yes, you should.
It's a good practice to change the water pump when you are changing the timing belt.
If the timing belt drives the water pump you should replace the belt at the same time as the pump.
A Dodge Durango does not have a timing belt. It has timing chain. If the timing cover chain gasket is leaking it is normal to change it while changing the water pump.
