My Lexus is overheating within 15 minutes of running the engine. I think the water pump is not working and needs to
be replaced. The car has over 250,000 miles on it. Is the
water pump easy to replace? Where can I get a set of instructions to do this job myself?

    If it is overheating its the thermostat. or you are low on coolant or the radiator is plugged with bugs or dirt.
