Question DetailsAsked on 7/22/2012

I have a 2007 Toyota Camry with 170,000 miles on it. (mostly Highway)I am going to have the timing belt changed. Water pump question.

In the past on older cars, I have always had the water pump changed at the same time I changed the timing belts. Does the water pump need to come off on the Camry (4 Cyl) to change the timing belts? And if so, what are the odds that the water pump will fail after reinstalling it? It is a GREAT car that I plan on keeping. Thanks for any help you can give.

If this car has a water pump that has to be replaced at the same time u need to replace the belt it is always a good idea to go ahead and do it while you are in the motor anyway, because water pumps aren't very expensive, but the labor to do the job is.So its kinda like killing two birds with one stone .Besides if your luck is like mine ,time you replace the belt , two weeks afterwards there goes the water pump. The bottom line is YES, its a good idea to replace them both at the same time . GOOD LUCK !!!
