Customer Question
Have to change the...

Have to change the water pump on my 1994 Olds 98 Regency Elite, Supercharged V6 engine.

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle ever overheated? And when was it last serviced?

Overheated a bit today, belt kept falling off because antifreeze was dripping all over it frum the hole under the pump. My main concern is if it has anything to do with timing when I remove it.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Regency yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, and I know its the pump, done many, just never on 3800 Supercharged before. Its been running a little hot since I got it, now I'm pretty sure I know why

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Nope, should do it. Was just concerned about the timing

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will assist you today. No. Replacing the water pump will not affect timing at all. So go ahead and replace it without any timing issue worries.
