How to install water pump and timing belt kit?

Generally, car timing belt should be replaced every 50,000–80,000 operational kilometres depending on manufacturer’s recommendations. Despite the fact that lifetime of the water pump is slightly longer, this component is usually replaced together with the timing belt.

The timing belt and the water pump cannot be repaired, thus they are to be replaced in case of defects. This process is rather difficult and requires special equipment. Replacing the timing belt unit components is better entrusted to service station specialists. It is recommended to buy a new water pump kit and tension rollers as well, and replace of

all the components at the same time.

If timing belt defects were found you should also check the alternator belt because they have similar lifetime. Before replacing the toothed belt it is recommended to buy the V-belt kit as well in order to replace it if necessary.

Always replace toothed belts together with rollers and the cooling system pump.
It is advised to perform installation of the timing belt kit at a service station.
Average operational lifetime of the timing belt is 80 000 – 100 000 operational kilometers.

Water pump + timing belt kit Information

Centrifugal water pump circulates liquid in the cooling system. The water pump is bolted to the front of the cylinder block. Between the block and the pump housing there is set a gasket. As for the pump housing, it has two pipes. One of them, side, connects the lower radiator pipe, the second is connected to the upper thermostat housing. Thermostat serves automatically to set water temperature. Thus, it accelerates the process of warming up the engine after starting. Water pump drive varies for different engine models.

As for cars with four-cylinder or diesel engine, the water pump is located in the left side of the engine and is driven by the V-belt. Do not forget that it is dangerous to drive without the V-belt of the water pump drive. Otherwise, the consequence would be a serious damage of the engine. In cars with five-cylinder engine water pump is located in the left side of the engine, but it is driven by the timing belt.

Six-cylinder engine starts the pump with the help of the outer side of the timing belt.

Long-standing practice of using water pumps shows that this part is sufficiently reliable in service and does not require serious maintenance. Life cycle of modern pumps is about 50 thousand kilometres. If you hear strange sounds, such as grinding then the water pump works or it appeared to leak, it must be replaced. To install a new water pump, you will need new gaskets for cars with four-, six-cylinder and diesel engines. If you replace the pump in a car with five-cylinder engine, you will need a new seal ring.
