Around how many hours should I be charged to change water pump and timing belt?
I assume my water pump has pumped its last. My car is beginning to overheat, and I've already tested the thermostat to see if it was stuck. The thermostat opens at high temperatures, it's just that no coolant is getting pumped throughout the engine and radiator.
How many hours should it take to replace the pump and timing belt for the mechanic? I don't have any access to car lifts to try and do the job myself, and it's freezing out now. As much as I would like to learn how to repair this, I just don't have the resources to get it done... and I need the car to drive myself to school.
Also, besides the water pump, what other parts/accessories are needed with it? Any gaskets, etc?
So, let me get this straight:
Your Honda has 1.6 litres, whereas my bottle of Mountain Dew has 2?
