    Timing Belt and Water Pump Replacement

    When I go to the mechanic and ask for a timing belt replacement, is it a good idea to get the water pump replaced too? And is the mechanic responsible for replacing any tensioners/pullies that may be bad?

    No. To make them responsible for doing anything, pay them to do so.

    If you feel a new pulley and a 100K old pulley you will see that a silent 100K old pulley is still good but you may also wonder for how long that will still be the case.
