No, but if you have to take it off while your changing the pump or if it is very close while changing the pump, wouldn't it make sense to? Timing belt are replaced on a periodic time table, usually 60,000 miles for most. Unless this has been replaced in last 30,000 miles, I would do it.

ALSO I WOULD REPLACE THE THERMOSTATA,AND ALL 3 BELTS,NOW IS THE TIME ,THEY ARE RIGHT THERE,AND ALL CHEAP PARTS.............................BUDDY MACK

How do you replace the water pump on a 1996 Nissan Maxima V6 automatic?

how to remove and install water pump on 1996 Nissan maximaI just had mine done, the part is about $110 from Nissan, aftermarket is about $90. the labour alone is what drives the price. Nissan told me it would take 7 hours to do @ $100 per hour. I went to an independent mechanic and he said it would take about 6 hours. But he didnt charge me 100 per hour. its an internal water pump under the timing chain. ***If the car has over 100,000 miles, ask what is the additional cost to re-tension the timing chain (the timing chain stretches over time).

What will it cost to replace a water pump on a 1995 Nissan Maxima SE?

"Labor should be around $125, you will want to have the timing belt changed at the same time." Actually, this generation maxima incorporates a timing chain. Labor can easily $250 (maxima water pumps are not easily accessible). The water pump (and related gaskets) should be $150 (or less if you buy the parts yourself from a discount parts store). The timing chain may also have to serviced if the car has over 100,000 miles. The tensioning-labor charge can be over $300.00 in cost. The tensioner-kit parts cost is about $100. [ The timing-chain kit is over $500.00. ]

How do you replace the water pump on a 1997 Nissan Maxima?

Check the site www.maxima.org - Look at the forum "Stickies" - there are a number of how-to's for nearly all maxima's including water pump change-out. Since you have a 1997 model, look under "4th Generation Maxima" Water pump service on you 1997 is one of the more difficult DIY fixes since the pump is driven by the timing chain, recesssed in the engine, and somewhat difficult to get to.

How much does a timing chain cost 4 a 2000 Nissan Maxima what r the symptoms its bad?

Parts and labor to replace the timing chain on a Nissan Maxima will easily exceed over $1,500.00. If you have to incur the expense, might as well also spend another $500.00 to replace the water pump. [Note: when that timing chain goes, you lose the engine. Engine-replacement is over $3,000.] The timing chain shouldn't really break. "Going-bad" will be where the timing chain is getting loose and the sound of the chain flapping around inside its assembly can actually be heard as you rev the engine. Have a reliable mechanic give you their assessment of what's happening with the timing chain (and the water pump). Might as well get a second mechanic give a second opinion.
