Poor Water Pump Desgn
By Frank713 on

Vehicle

1998 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

59.5 K miles and noted the coolant reservoir was dry just prior to long trip Denver to Grand Canyon. Water pump was leaking and very expensive to replace...similar to changin timing belt laybor. Was out of warranty by time...but I called Go Toyota and they agreed to pay for the pump, but not the laybor. I'm happy with the truck, but dissappointed with the failed water pump with so few miles...no off road. Mechanic told me pump was a bad design by Toyota and it is a common repair for this truck.

Best Features

Good looking and sturdy.

Worst Features

Toyota should have done a recall on the water pumps.
