1991 Mazda Protege Question: TIMING BELT REPLACEMENT
Anitah Sounds like your water pump is leaking and needs replacement and its located with the timing belt and both should be changed at the same time. You can check the estimate here www.repairpal.com/estimator and get a second opinion here www,repairpal.com/directory Hope this helps - 427Chevy
The labor is about the same as he has to remove the timing belt to get to those seals and your better off changing the water pump while its apart as it would be a shame if the pump started leaking 6 months from now - hemicuda
The cam and crank seals can be replaced without the water pump or even the timing belt for that matter. The reason for suggesting them might be it is much less expensive while you are already disassembled and they don't last forever. If the pump seizes six months after the job, everything will have to be done over, at best. Like most things, if you are willing to take risk, you can save money. - louis1953
