    So I found my cherry 2006 DC a few months ago...1 owner, clean carfax, low miles (84K and) and a stack of service records as long as my arm. Since the timing belt was not due til 90K, the previous owner had not had it done yet. I decided 13 years is long enough on a TB and waterpump, so I dropped it off at a shop I've never used before with an Aisin TKT021 timing belt water pump kit. This shop get fantastic ratings from the GA 4runner/Tacoma group.

    Anyway, he just sent me this pic saying "Good Timing!" That pink you see is the Toyota coolant starting to leak and harden....so far I'm happy with service and the updates... :)

    Too many
    Good call. What causes this? Water pump is failing?

    I'm a big believer that age can be a factor on some of these parts more so than miles. It's why I'm replacing my radiator even though it works fine. 17 years is a good run for a radiator.

    My understanding is it's the waterpump beginning to fail, but maybe someone else who knows for sure can chime in. I was thinking about doing the radiator as well...but I think I will go a couple more years since it's getting a nice coolant flush at the moment. :)

    The pumps typically leak from the weep hole when the seals dry up from age. Reason it’s always recommend to replace the pump with the belt everytime

    My buddy who is the service manager at a local dealer said he has only seen a few water pumps that don't look like that.
