Well, 100K KMs is 62K miles. Most people have been changing the timing belt around this mileage and changing the water pump at the second TB change. So you are O.K. for another 100K KMs.

By the way. You should fill out your profile so that people can see where you are and what you drive etc.

I wouldn't bother with the pump. I have had cars that went over 250000km {20 plus years}with original waterpumps no problems. The main thing is to keep using a good anticorrosive coolant.

TAKE YOUR TIME, THINK IT OUT, DO IT RIGHT, DO IT ONCE!! original quote by me as far as I know. :rolleyes:

Agreed, Make sure your coolant is changed every 30k, and just keep an eye on it. In the 10+ years I've been working on Kia's I've probably replaced 2 or 3 water pumps. It's not like the old days on how every honda and toyota it was like "you have to replace the water pump and timing belt"
