I think that replacing the water pump by myself is a little too hard of a task, since I don't even have any tools and whatnot, so I let the car dude do it. He said it will cost around $300.
Is this a good price?
Also, how much does just a water pump cost? (without laborfees and stuff liek that)

Replacing the water pump is one of the easier tasks in car repair. I did one once (on a '67 Rambler Rebel) on the side of the road, at night, with only a pair of vise grips (man was that a PITA); I was a pooooor collage kid at the time. Didn't you invest in a metric sockets set a while ago? So go down to the auto parts place get some penetration oil, a Haynes manual, a new water pump, thermostat and radiator cap and DYI. We know you can.
Then send us the $$s you saved

[QUOTE=jadams68]Ummm...what did u do with the original bolts?
"Most of the time" < should have said "Most of the frustration"
I just put them all into a bucket -unsorted. PS bracket bolts are various sizes. oh, & had to go back in to further tighten the belt after a test drive. It's still a smidgeon loose as occasionally the A/C squeals during the 1st minute of driving (BFD).
I just replaced my water pump Wednesday in about 3.5 hours. I was actually taking my sweet old time and it all went smoothly. Water pump at autozone... $35.00, 2 gallons of antifreeze... $14.00, a tube of RTV high temp silicone... $5.00,
Spending quality time with your JEEP... PRICELESS!!
If you do it yourself, check your serpentine belt to see if it needs replaced... It is a perfect time to do it!
It doesn't matter what you drive as long as it is a JEEP.
