When changing my water pump, what other parts should be replaced also? I have seen suggestions of timing chain, tension-er and oil pump. Any other gaskets or o-rings for parts removed to reach the water pump?
Do you

Your car has what is called in internal water pump. Basically, it is behind the front cover of the engine, and is being driven by the timing belt. So, since you are already going to be in there, yes, you should do the whole timing set (belt, guides, gears, and so forth). I am attaching Prodemand's instructions on how to install the pump and the timing set. It is an intense and tedious job, and if you mess up, you could easily be replacing your engine. If you do not know a lot about cars, this is not the job to start learning on.

All of that said, thanks for using 2carpros. Please feel free to come back anytime and send your friends too.
