2000 Volkswagen Jetta Q&A
2000 Volkswagen Jetta Question: Car is @ 110k mi. Replacing timing belt. Replaced water pump @ 56k. Replace now?
My car is almost @ 110,000 miles and I need to replace the timing belt. I've heard you should replace the water pump at the same time to avoid having to do it later. I replaced my water pump at 56,000 miles. Should I skip it or will it go again soon? Should I also replace the idlers, tensioners, drive belt and front engine seals like some people recommend? - epitkow
yes to all. the tension of the new timing belt may cause failure of an old pump. tensioners and pulleys are always recommended. Roy - mastertech6371
