    It has nothing to do with an engine oil cooler. All 5VZ's have a small oil cooler unit.

    The water pumps are different depending on whether you have an *automatic transmission fluid cooler* (part of the factory towing package on auto's).

    Your 97 has a straight water pump. This is a picture of the water pump off my 96 tacoma (3.4L manual no tow package)
