VW engines.

Who drives the water pump off the the cam belt?

The missus's beetle started to misfire the other day. No other codes, just misfire on cylinder 3 and 4.

Did some digging around the engine couldn't see anything obvious but notice a bit of water coming out of the bottom of timing case, set the cam timing markers up and the crank marks are out. Whip the covers off and low and behold, the water pump is rolling around on an oval! The belt was slack and jump a tooth or two!

Lucky I caught it! If that had of failed completely it would of been new engine time due to how it's driven off the cam belt.

Pretty sure my old nova engine was the same and so were all my honda prelude. f20a and h22a. plus my b16a crx.A new water pump is recommended at the time of renewing timing belt for obv reasons

Alfa/Fiat do as well. They also used a plastic water pump that warps over time and eventually sticks taking the cambelt with it.

I always thought they got run off the serpentine belt. Mine is.


Well it's a design that needs changing!

99% of all engines have the water pump run off the timing belt and it is an effective design bar a few

Not really fussed if it's common or not, I just think its a crap design.
