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.
yeah it would be a good idea
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 is located in the shroud that houses the timing belt. This is why the pump is changed when you get a new timing chain.
how does water change when heat is added or removed
It depends on the motor..if you have overhead cam...then YES. The timing belt has to be removed when the water pump is changed and the cam sprockets have to be set to correct timing when the belt is replaced.
Assuming you have the 2.5 engine, the water pump is driven off the timing belt.
the water pump is behind the timing belt,depending on how mechanically inclined you are it could take a few hrs-a few days.its a very big job
no you do not have to change the timing chain when changing the water pump.
Its pretty bad a lot of stuff has to be removed before you can get to it, I suggest you change the timing belt while you have everything removed
you will have to take off the water pump and lossen the oil pan to get to the crank and timing gears. and some other parts to have clearance for the timing chain cover to be removed
use the remove timing belt instructions and it includes the water pump,"if your in there do them all !"
Yes, the timing belt has to be removed.
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.
the water pump is located underneath the timing belt cover and requires that the timing belt be removed in order to replace it as it is driven by the timing belt.
plastic explosives,just kidding.its behind the timing belt,serious pain in the ass
You do not have to, but if the water pump is timing belt driven it is highly recommended.
You did not indicate the year your Galant 3.0L was produced. I looked up a 2001 model Galant LS 3.0L, and yes, it is an interference engine. Replace the timing belt AND water pump every 100,000 miles or kiss the valves goodbye.
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
The timing belt has to be removed to access the water pump. Once the pump is replaced the timing belt has to be replaced and set.
The water pump is located underneath the timing cover, and is driven by the timing belt. It is a very involved job. Coolant needs draining, engine mount removed, engine jacked up/supported, brackets/cover removed and the cam belt. Cams will have to be retimed when reinstalling belt.
No, but it can be recommended on a system where the timing belt runs the water pump.
The water pump is bolted to the engine block underneath the plastic covers that house the valve timing belt, camshaft and crankshaft gears, idler pulley and spring tensioner. The timing belt must be removed to access the water pump. This is not a job for a novice to attempt. Usually it is recommended to change the timing belt and water pump at the same time.
You did not say which engine you have but it is most likely driven by the timing belt so any front accesories on the engine that are in the way will need to be removed and a new timing belt will be needed as well.
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.
