How expensive is it to replace the water pump on a 2002 PT Cruiser? The parts are inexpensive, but reading the description of the removal and installation process leads me to believe that this should be done in a shop, not in my carport.
yes the water pump is driven off the timing belt it is about a 4-5 hour job it probably wouldn't be a bad idea to replace the timing belt while it is off you are probably looking at 200-400 depending on the labor rates in your area
