When Should I Replace My Timing Belt and Water Pump?
Knowing when to replace your timing belt and water pump before they fail, can often be difficult to know. Generally, these will need to be changed as directed by your manufacturer’s recommendation; which is normally every 60,000 miles. Most car owners change both components at the same time to save on costs and time. And there are some very good reasons to change both at the same time as to avoid unwanted additional charges or trouble in the future. This is because the labor involved in disassembling the engine to get at these parts is complicated and time-consuming, so you will be save yourself by replacing them at the same time.
