Check under car for water leaks. Check the pump make sure the seal is tight,listen to the pump while the car is running and see if you hear any noise from the pump. This could be a sign of broken blazes.Finially pull off the upper hose to the water pump start the engine and see if the pump is working. If it is, check the thermostat it may not be opening to let the water pass through.

You do not need to replace a water pump and thermostat at the same time. These parts do not ruin each other.

First you will need to know what size the engine is. 3.3L or 3.5l? The 3.3L is an external water pump and easy to replace. The other is not so easy as an internal water pump.

I have a 1997 Toyota Camry. It is leaking anti-frezze. I need to replace the water pump. Do I have to remove and replace timing belts too?

The water pump circulates the coolant throughout the engine. When a pump fails on a 1997 Hyundai the coolant will not circulate properly and cause the engine to overheat.

No, you do not need. Just remove all bolts and pull it out. Make sure that you replace the water pump gasket.

If the car is over heating or if a sound that shouldn't be there can be heard due to worn out pump bearings.

I just want to know when do i have to replace the water tank.

You need a water pump and water pump gasket (sometimes it comes with water pump but not always). It's a good idea to get to replace crankshaft, camshaft and oil pump seals. Also if money allows replace the timing belt spring and its tensioneer.

Yes. The seal for the water pump is bad. Replace it.

The water pump on a 97 Nissan Sentra is behind the timing belt. To replace it you will need to drain the coolant, remove the cylinder head, loosen pulley bolts, drive belts, and water pump pulley. Next, remove coolant hoses, water pump bolts, and finally the old water pump. Reverse directions to replace with new pump.

If it is all that is wrong, then yes.
