    Hello forum,

    I let my 1st gen Tundra get pretty hot when the 2nd water pump went out (@160K miles) & now the shop says I have hydrocarbons in the coolant + the next water pump is failing after 20K miles. 1 shop sez '$5K to fix it', another sez 'get a new truck' & another still sez 'replace the whole engine'. I love my truck & acknowledge I am the one who let it get too hot, but don't know what to do; Any advice?

    Thanx,
    Michael
