    I stopped by the dealer today for the pedal recall and got a call a couple hours later telling me that my water pump was leaking and that I had 40 something miles left on my warranty so it'd be covered!! Whewww.... but anyone else have their water pump leak before 100,000 miles??? Also, how do I get them to check for the TOB before I roll over 60,000? (I tried searching)

    Wow waterpump leaking on a toyota before 60k, I hope it is an isolated problem. No point in having a timing chain if you have to change the water pump every 60k.

    If you call them and they document that the complaint was filed before 60k you should be fine.

    Wow at 40,000. Yea it's a v6. Do you know why the pumps would leak so early?

    I'm not going to be driving my tacoma until I get the TOB figured out cause I don't want to risk not getting warranty work but I'll have them document my complaint just in case.

    Dunno why, something screwy there though. I just bought mine in August with 37,000 on it so it kinda sucks to have something go this quickly but again, at least it's covered. Definitely make sure they see the TOB before 60k, god only knows what kind of arguments they'd have for you then.

    Yea. Judging by the lack of replies, it's safe to assume that the leaks are isolated incidents.

    I have an 06 Taco 2.7L with 64,000 and my pump just started leaking this week. I too feel that is way too early. I really take exellent care of my truck and keep fresh coolant at the proper mix ratio in it at all times. I plan to replace the pump myself. It is really pretty straightforward especially since it uses a gasket and not silicone. Never had good luck with that stuff. I just ordered the pump and both upper and lower radiator hoses. I figured since I have to drain the cooling system I better go ahead and change the hoses too.

    Negative. Toyota water pumps are well known for having shaft seal leakage issues. I had mine replaced before the factory warranty was up. Lack of response might be from other causes.

    with all the members here, and lack of waterpump issue threads, i do not believe this is an issue anyone needs to be "worried " about. drive on!

    I'm changing my water pump this week. I'd take pictures but it just slows me down. I read it's the seal that goes. Got all my parts at rock auto, just remember to get a gasket/o ring for the thermostat if you get one. I'm not going to flush the engine, just drain, fill, burp. The coolant is pink, doesn't smell burned. My truck is weeping like it got spanked.
