Volkswagen Golf Inspection of Water Pump and Timing Belt

(10 reports)

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.

Water pump failed. Shop replaced water pump and timing belt and tensioners. -
The timing belt and water pump went. I've had a lot of work done on this car already (alternator, O2 sensors, Mass Air flow,Brakes, Emergency Brake) I was told by the mechanic who was nearest my location when the car broke down that these 2 things could be fixed, but that there is a 50/50 chance that a valve is bent, but they won't know until they replace the timing belt.(Potentially talking about $1300 if the valve went too) Is the car worth taking the risk and putting the added money into or should I total it??? -
