    Found out last week during an oil change that I have a small leak from the waterpump. The pump and the drivebelts need to be replaced. Going o cost $900 to replace. Can't complain though really. It's a n 07 with just under 70k and this is the first thing I've had to do other than general maintenance. I just look at it this way, they replace it at the 100k service so now I just won't have to have that done. BTW incase you didn't know the 5.7 has timing chains not belts. I asked about changing the timingbelts when they did the pump. That's when they told me about having a timing chain.

    Is the leaking water pump more of an earlier year issue?

    Not sure about that, I have not really payed attention to the year. But it does seem to happen somewhere between 60-70k.

    Ask Jace. Think he said it was the earlier second gens that were doing it.

    Yes, 07-08, though it's happened on earlier years too. Just look through your passenger side wheel well, and verify it's not leaking. I want to say Toyota extended the warranty on these to like 100k/7yrs, but I'm not positive.

    Mine is not covered under warranty. I had 69,944 on the odometer when I dropped it off this morning. They did however extend the warranty on the AIP issue until 100K though.

    Would've paid for itself with this single repair...

    Yeah, it most likely would have. I bought a Toyota because I thought I wouldn't need an extended warranty. Lol, looks like that backfired on me.

    It's relatively inexpensive as far as needing something replaced. If you were in a ford Chevy or dodge, you'd be trading the truck in, instead of fixing it...

    I'm not complaining by any means. I love my truck, and am very happy with my purchase so far.
