    So my water pump went out on my car and it tied in with the Timing belt do i need to change everything at once or just the Water pump itself cause i was told u have to change everything at once

    Hmm don't know abot the specific model but you should be good with just changing the WP. Throw on a new timing belt while you're at it, shouldn't hurt.

      It is not recommended to replace the waterpump and re-use the belt (a belt is like 20 dollars?). The belt has to come off anyway, might aswell put a new one on it.

      If you risk it, and the belt snaps, it's goodbye engine.

      It is recommended to replace waterpump, timing belt, and any tensioners or rollers at the same time. If you only replace the waterpump, and a tensioner fails a few months later you're gonna have to do 80% of the same labour again.
