Just change it yourself, it's not so hard.

Buy the special tools at Autozone. Even though you need to buy new
tools you will still make out way ahead of the game if you take it to
an independent mechanic.

Open the hood and try to fit your hand around the water pump. Does the
job look doable to you? Or will the engine need to be pulled for
clearance? If the latter, just take it to a mechanic. Shop around for
one and check the Better buisness Bureu and Consumer Affairs Online.

Go to www.napaonline.com and find out what a new water pump will cost
for your car. I checked on 2000 Camries and the prices for NEW varied
from
about $30-70.

NAPA normally has GOOD parts. Would be a waste of time to try to guess
what seals and belts you need, but the point is you can get good aftermarket
parts and don't have to go to a Toyota dealership.

Now, there are a number of good mechanics in Houston, but probably a lot
more that will skin you.

Go to the AAA website, and if you dig around, you can find their list of
approved mechanics. I normally do my own work, but have used their
recommended sites on a couple of occasions and was well satisfied.

Asia Auto Care on 12420 S. Gessner @ W.Airport. Their telephone number is
713-773-1166.

I recently had my AC go out on me. The AC LED was blinking and the
compressor would not start. I took it in and they checked out the car.
During the check up the AC started working again. Apparently I had a bad
contact on my relay that turns on the clutch. Anyway, they did not charge
me for this. Mr.Can Nguyen said that because he did not "fix" the car, he
was not going to charge me. I have many other similar stories of when I
owned my Mitsubishi Galant. They are very fair with their prices and I have
always been impressed with the quality of their repairs. My Galant had one
problem after another once it got to about 120,000 miles and they helped me
out quite a bit.
