I was installing a hood scoop insert and noticed that there is pinkish residue splattered all over the front of the engine. It was on airbox, P/S reservoir, going down towards crank pulley... Next thing I check is my coolant reservoir and it has very little coolant left, below the LOW mark.
The obvious thing I am thinking is blown gasket between water pump and block. Now this quite upsets me, because the truck is 2008 with only 33k miles, just out of warranty
I bought the truck as certified Toyota vehicle, but I doubt that they will honor it due to all my mods
I can swap the water pump myself no problem. It costs $89 plus the coolant so around $100... My thoughts... I will buys some coolant and monitor the leak, if it gets worse or starts overheating, I will have no choice but replace it
Anyone had this happen to their 2TR?
