I bought my 05 TSX new after totally my Civic. From my experience with my Civic, I know you're suppose to replace the water pump and timing belt at 100k. I went through the TSX owner's manual and it didn't say when to replace the items. I understand the TSX has a timing chain instead of a belt, so that doesn't need to be replaced, right? What about the water pump.

Much Thanks!

There does not appear to be any maintenance interval for the Timing Chain and Water Pump in the service manual.

To inspect the water pump though, here's the steps:

Water Pump Inspection:
1. Remove the drive belt
2. Turn the water pump pulley counterclockwise. Check that it turns freely. If it doesn't turn smoothly, replace the water pump.
Note: When you check the water pump pulley, you may see a small amount of "weeping" from the bleed holes. This is normal.
3. Install the drive belt.
