stevenlo7253 is cool... so far.
Cost for water pump

I took my 1993 Honda Accord 10th Anniversary Edition to my mechanic to get the coolant leak checked out, and it was the water pump. Now he's asking if I want it replaced, it will be around $500. Is that around the price it should take, should I try to do it myself?

How should we know if you have the capability to do it yourself? Do you have plenty of tools? In this case you'll also need a floor jack and the ability to break a crankshaft pulley bolt loose as well. Are you prepared to spend the associated costs redoing all of the timing components while you're in there? Your mechanic, hopefully, is including those additional things in with that quote.

That's about right, though. This can only be decided by you.

$500, including all necessary parts... that's a pretty good deal. If you're not up to attempting something like that yourself (usually, anyone who asks random internet strangers, who may be no more experienced than they, tend NOT to have the knowhow...) then having it done professionally for a fair price will at least ensure you don't destroy your engine as soon as you start it up.

Ok, thanks for the help guys, I'm getting it done. He's going to do the timing belt as well so I think it's a good deal. I just read some threads on how to do the job, and I don't really think I would've been able to do it correctly.
