Should I change my water pump too?

Hi Shane further to cambelt does that mean regardless of time also water pump change ? thanks again John

Our answer:

Hi John,

There are rarely specified change intervals for an engine's coolant pump, but it's accepted to be good practice to change it when changing the timing belt if it is driven by it. No point changing it earlier (unless it develops an issue), as that would mean removal of the belt, which would then have to be changed as well.
