Q: Replacing Water pump and 99 Sebring

asked by on

Do I have to pull the motor to change the water pump and timing belt on and 99 Sebring 2.5 motor

My car has 149657 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

No. You do not have to remove the motor but would have to support it while you get access to the timing belt. These are both pretty large tasks, so if you do not feel comfortable with either, you may want assistance from a professional. If you need help, a certified expert from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to replace your water pump and timing belt for you.
