A friend of mine needs help with her 2001 Mazda 626 LX V6 "Natasha" is having problems with over heating, was told its her water pump (not something i feel comfortable doing).

She is in desperate need, she will buy the part and has offered to pay someone to do this.. the shop's she has called quoted her $800 - $1500 to do the job telling her "ohh we have to replace the timing chain, radiator and the entire cooling system..they havent even looked at the car, it has a new radiator, timing chain was done 2 years ago i believe.

Natasha lives in Tempe off the 60 and priest, she doenst have much money but is very desperate (that does not mean she will trade favors), she works full time, goes to ASU and supports herself by herself.

Please let me know if you can help, she is good people in a bad situation.

Thanks for reading.

If it's the old one with a carb then try to turn up the fuel mixture.

I could do this but I would have to go back to AJ and get my tools out of the storage unit. It wouldn't be until tomorrow. If someone else gets to it before then, well that's awesome. :smiley2:

Can you post a pic of some of the parts and the junk in the trunk so we can see what were working with? Ooh...and a pic of the car would be nice too..:eek:

Let me know if you need help with it. I'm not sure if I'll be available tomorrow but I can try. It'll get done faster. I can't say I'd do it because I don't have the tools and I'll assume I'm not that experienced so I don't break anything. (Including installing the water pump backwards)

That water pump takes 4 hours to change in a shop. Most shops should ask around 400 not 800

Like i said, shop quoted $800 - $1500.. doesn't sound right to me either but that IS what they quoted

My good friend has a shop in mesa, he will beat any quote and he is ASE certified. He replaced my ac in my xterra for 650.00. Dealer wanted 1600.00, 2 other shops wanted 900.00. He guarantees his work as well.

I've been going to.him for three years now, and I make the drive all the way from north phx.

If u want to give him a call for a quote pm me and ill give you how number.

So how many other shops did she (and/or you) call? Don't stop dialing after the first quote.

Go spend $20 on a Haynes auto manual and help her with the install so that you both learn something. Even better than that, go spend $40 on two Haynes auto manuals so that you can start working on your Jeep too. You will like all of the pretty pictures. :laugh2:

If the two of you would like some help, you are welcome to bring the car over to my place. I'll let you turn the bolts while I provide supervision, tools, ramps, water, good looks, and plenty of sarcastic jokes at your expense.

LOL. If I could make one suggestion though, I'd find a factory service manual for the vehicles you want to maintain. Those Hayes manuals are pretty worthless. Here's an example of the detail to rebuild a transmission:

1) Disconnect negative battery cable.
2) Remove transmission.
3) Rebuild transmission.
4) Put transmission back in.
5) Reconnect negative battery cable.
6) Buy FSM to actually get the job done.

I agree with you, but you have to keep in mind that David only reads picture books. The words and diagrams in the factory service manuals are too advanced for him.

Randy didn't text me pics or say this chick was hot so that's not a good sign. I'll have to get the 411. Unless he's to whipped now and doesn't look at chicks anymore....
