The water pump may fail resulting in engine overheating and possible timing belt damage. Overheating and/or timing belt failure can result in very expensive engine repairs. As a precaution, it is recommended to inspect the timing belt and water pump at regular intervals.

Well, my timing belt failed and it costed me an INSANE amount of money because not only did I need a new timing belt, all of my valves bent. Now I am stuck with the decision of paying for a valve job or putting a whole new engine in it. Take my advice, get the timing belt done ASAP when you get a TT!

As a preventative step I replaced timing belt etc. To avoid future costly repairs!
