Dumb water pump location
By brettgjacobs on


2007 Toyota RAV4 Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


I bought my Rav4 used about a year and a half ago. No, problems up until recently. My Rav turned 90,000 miles and I took it in for an oil change and the mechanic told me that the water pump was failing. Normally, this is a pretty simple repair on most cars but for the V6 specific Rav4 the water pump is buried behind the engine and requires the mechanic to lift or drop the engine to get to the water pump. So, it's about a 700-1000 issue to fix and most all V6 Rav's will need this nearing 100,000. Just a heads up! Otherwise, I love my Rav4!
