Are you planning on doing the work yourself?

Engine size? Petrol or diesel? For piece of mind have the belt renewed. If in any doubt of the condition of the tensioner assembly renew this as well. :thumb:

This is your own decision.

Normally many owners change theirs every 40K Peugeot say 80K.

What is the problem with the water pump? Leaking or is the bearing worn?

If any coolant has leaked onto that belt this will weaken it.

If you are going to re-use this belt check thoroughly for signs of any uneven wear splitting, oil contamination and examine the teeth.

I understand the costing running the jam jar nowadays but for the cost of a second hand engine, fitting and downtime you need to weigh it up.

I'am sure your mate will be pretty clued up and will advise you anyway.

Good luck with the repair. :thumb:

thanks for advice :) am changing it because i have problem with heater system i changed thermostat and everything start from there the car get very hot very quickly reach till start stop sign come off we checked radiator we thought is blocked but it seems ok water go through we bled it out and still getting air inside system and water keeps flooding in reservoir and top hose for radiator is bowling hot and bottom one is cold freezing and i can feel the water in top hose not going constantly .. so i thought maybe head gasket gone but there's no sign of it (no oil in coolant,no creamy in oil, and no white smoke from exhaust) so we thought the worst case scenario is head gasket and above all that no hot air in cabin its bloody freezing inside.. and temp always in 90 if i stuck in traffic thats it its gone till top red ...

So if the engine is getting hot does the electric cooling fan not engage to low or high speed at all?

Did you also retry the drain, flush and refill?

I must admit if it is the pump then the impellor has come adrift from the shaft and not spinning as it should.

Could also be pressure cap fault though and cheaper option.
