I just had my water pump replaced on 2003 accord 2.4lt. It has 256,000 on it and this is the 3rd waterpump thus far. The best is and was working fine until I got the car back from the mechanic. Now it chirps until the belt warms up approx. 3-5 min after first start up. I think it is either alignment problem with new pump. Mechanic is going to try to scuff up the belt - he thinks any coolent on the belt or pulleys while changing the belt might have glazed the belt. we will see.
