Q:

Timing Belt and Water Pump replacement on 2002 Toyota 4Runner

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
What cost savings should I expect by replacing the timing belt and the water pump at the same time?
(1) Answer
If you have the Timing belt done without changing the pump and the pump goes out 10,000 miles later then you have to pay the same amount of labor to remove the timing belt again and replace the pump and you take a chance of overheating the engine and causing unnecessary damage to your engine. I would change the pump.
