Are you doing it or a local shop/dealership?

The timing chain is close to the water pump and to change the chain you have to drain the coolant, but no need to replace the chain unless there is a problem, it's not a maintanence item. Going rate for water pump R&R is around $400 at any shop.

Its a convienient shop (next to my job) and they priced it at $550 - they stated it was tied in with the timing chain. So I wanted to get a second opinion. I have dealt with them before and they seem a bit pricey, but again it was convienence. Maybe I will look elsewhere. Thanks much

Thank goodness I have a wonderful friend that did it for $37.00 Part was $21.99 and coolant was $15. It is a pretty easy thing to do. Save your money and watch a video, you can do this yourself.
