Poor Water Pump Desgn
By Frank713 on
Vehicle1998 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4dr SUV 4WD
Review59.5 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
Best FeaturesGood looking and sturdy.
Worst FeaturesToyota should have done a recall on the water pumps.
