View Full Version : Pumps and timing belt at da same time-o

94 GT 200k. They always say to do oil, water pumps at same time as the timing belt. With this car, depending on how they look, Im guessing its a good idea? Authentic toyota parts all the way?

You can rebuild the oil pup with a seal kit. Replace the water pump (I didn't use a Toyota OEM and survived) and timing belt. If you can find a Gates belt (Carquest) I say pick that one up.

Unless you have a known problem with your oil pump, don't waste the money.
Oil pumps don't go bad.
But I would do the seals.

As far as aftermarket water pumps, it's not necessarily if they work to begin with [I've had them crap out of the box], it's how long they last.
Some will last as long as a factory pump. Most won't.
Gates belts are good.
Your choice. :shrug:
