It's not fun. It is more difficult that the 4 cylinders, but not massively. Things are obviously tighter with more shafts to keep aligned, but if you have ever done a 4 cylinder motor, the 6 should be within your grasp.

need help on changing 95 Honda accord ex water pump and timing belt.

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.

it is in the block behind the timing cover. the timing belt drives the water pump so you have to remove the timing components to install the water pump.

How much dose it cost to get a timeing belt and a water pump replaced on a 1991 Honda Accord?

Water Pump is behind timing belt cover and is driven by the timing belt.... back side of engine (drivers Side)

It is located in front of engine you must remove timing cover and timing belt. So if your going to do this replace timing belt to if you have not done so.

If you have a V6 you should have a timing belt. While you are doing that you may as well replace the water pump. The timing belt drives the water pump also.

You have to remove everything in the timing belt region including a timing belt, gears and plastic protection.

the water pump is driven by the timing chain.. that said, unless you have experience replacing timing sets, I wouldn't tackle this

User Avatar

there is no line comming from the water pump on any 90 s accord u replace the whole pump behind the timing belt

User Avatar

Highly recommend while you are already there. Water pump will fail or leak before timing belt needs replaced again

User Avatar

Difficult to describe. It is next to the timing belt and is usually changed when you replace the timing belt

The water pump is difficult to access on this car. It's driven by the timing belt, which is located behind the timing belt cover, the pump is on the back side of the engine, near the firewall. It involves removing the driver's side engine mount, the harmonic balancer, the cover, etc.

It's under the timing belt cover and- you guessed it- is driven by the timing belt. Leave it to a professional, preferably a dealership.

70,000 is standard on timing belts. Change the water pump at the same time because they die at the same mileage.

Sorry but I must be blunt here. If you do not know where the timing belt is, then you have no business trying to replace it. This is an interference engine. Install the timing belt incorrectly on this engine and when you start it, you will have engine damage. Take it to a professional for the belt replacement. Also replace the water pump at the same time to save yourself labor costs down the road.

Unless you know exactly what you are doing this is a job best left to a professional. The engine in a 1989 Accord is an interference engine. Install the belt incorrectly, start the engine, and you will have severe damage. If you still want to do it, I suggest you go to an auto parts store and purchase a repair manual specific to your car. There you will find instructions on how to replace the timing belt. If you hire someone to do this job, also replace the water pump and drive belts at the same time as the timing belt. This will save you labor costs down the road, as the water pump life expectancy is about the same as the timing belt.

The 1995 Honda Accord V6 has a timing belt that must be changed every 90,000 miles. Also replace the cam belt driven water pump at the same time. Warning: This is an interference engine. If the belt breaks you will have serious internal engine damage.

About 2 hours if you are a professional and have done it many times.

User Avatar

You first disconnect the battery, then drain the cooling system, discount belt from engine and water belt pulley, then remove the water pump bolts and remove the water pump, then you install the new water pump and put everything back.

What holds the timing belt tensioner in place

User Avatar

The water pump is located in front of the engine behind the timing belt cover. You need to remove the timing belt in order to get to the water pump, i suggests to replace the timing belt as well. This is a difficult job unless if you have done a timing belt replacement before.

User Avatar

It has an interference engine. Get that timing belt replaced and do the water pump at the same time.
