Should I listen when my mechanic wants to change the water pump when he changes my timing belt How much should this cost if I have a 1997 Honda Civic EX?

On some engines, the water pump is mounted inside the timing

belt cover, and is driven by the timing belt. Changing the water

pump requires removing the timing belt cover and the timing belt.

If your car is 10 years old, there is a good chance that the water

pump will go out in the near future. Changing the pump while the

timing belt is being changed is a wise strategy, in some cases.
