    Z18XE water pump change intervals

    Just wondering if the water pump on a Z18XE should be changed as the same time as the timing belt is being done.... Father in laws 1.8 16v is at 40k miles and so needs its timing belt changed.

    Any help appreciated.

    There is no scale to when a water pump needs changing. They just get changed when they need changing.

    The reason why people change when the cam belt is done is the reason while its all apart you might as well do it for an extra 40 quid.


    As if you pump does go you have to fit a new cam belt anyway

    Definetly change it.

    As its directly driven by the cambelt, you can imagine what happens if the bearing on the pump fails entirely.

    I have done 120k and had three belts and the pump is still fine, but by getting the pump changed you eliminate the risks
