Wonder what fair price is in northern CA for an independent shop to replace timing belt and water pump. and should I have the serpentine belt replaced as well, and then what is fair price? This car has 178K miles on it, no past major problems reported by seller, but needs 'hydraulic pump' (?) (power steering) replaced since tires were replaced recently. any response appreciated... regards ddnorm
I have a coolant leak at the short hose connecting the water inlet pipe to the back of the water pump. Is there an easy way to replace this? I am familiar with cooling system repairs, but it sounds like this would be complicated if I have to remove the water pump. Can I replace the hose by detaching the water inlet pipe from the back of the engine? Can it be replaced without removing the inlet pipe? (It looks like there is not enough room to slip the short piece of hose in place without moving at least the inlet pipe.) Any suggestions are welcome. Note this is a picture from internet. I have not taken anything apart yet. engine diagram.docx Jump hose.docx
Has anyone had experience with fighting Extra Care when they deny a claim under the Extended Powertrain Warranty?? I was told by 2 mechanics that my water pump bearings failed and caused my drive belt to break, resulting in my engine overheating. However, Toyota Extra Care is saying it must have been my negligence regarding the engine overheat that caused any damage to any covered component. Although they have failed to state how I could have caused the engine to overheat, my presumption is they feel that the drive belt caused the whole problem. I have SEVERAL questions regarding this- including how my drive belt could have been deemed just FINE during a multi-point inspection 5 weeks prior to the incident. Also, I have been told that the Corolla/Matrix engine is infamous for premature water pump bearing failure. If anyone has experience with these things, or information on getting an ombudsman involved, I'd really appreciate the input!
