Water pump replacement v6-3.0l 1994 toyota camry

Q: Water pump replacement

asked by on May 31, 2017

Water pump is out. How much should it cost and how long will it take to repair?

My car has 180000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Generally, when a water pump is going bad, you may hear a bit of a whining sound combined with the pump leaking. The most common place for the water pump to leak from is the pulley shaft seal which is in the front of the pump where the shaft comes out of the pump housing. When the pump is leaking, it will typically cause the engine to overheat as well. I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your location to diagnose and replace your water pump.
