1998 Lexus ES300 Q&A

1998 Lexus ES300 Question: Replace water pump at same time as replacing timing belt?

Is the water pump driven by the timing belt on my 1998 Lexus ES 300? -
Answer 1
The water pump is driven by the timing belt, so it is a good idea to replace it at the same time. This will save you in labor costs should the pump start leaking later. -

Thank you munkyrench, I spoke with the dealership and will have them install a new water pump at the same time the timing belt is installed. You are correct. M. Gdowik -
