    Has anyone replaced their water pump on2007with a 5.7 engine? what was the cost and has anyone replaced their own and how much trouble was it.haven't worked on these trucks other than brakes and oil changes and minor things. its hard to find anyone you can trust and tell you the straight of things. dealers don't care they just want your money and lots of it. I live in beaufort sc and would love to find some one that is honest and doesn't want to rob you. hope someone can help,thanks

    @TxTundraGuy89 wasn't it you that did the water pump, or was it someone else?

I can fix most anything but would like a little guidance. Is there something to look for that is unforeseen .thanks to anyone that can help me. I'M just a man that is almost 69 years old and thinks I'm 25,but love this TOYOTA best thing since slice bread. I'm sure some will agree and some want but that's ok. just thank each that reply

    OP, check out this thread where you can ask a Toyota mechanic for input.

    I might be tackling this with my dad on his truck in the near future. So far so good with my truck.

    Awhile back, my dealer told me the seals on my WP were starting to wear down and we'd need to replace it sometime down the road. Said a tech noticed some drops during my oil change, but said it wasn't enough to warrant it immediately, but we'd likely need to within a year. Quoted me $1,300 for the new pump and install, told me that water pumps in Tundras are a bitch to get to.

    check with Toyota to see if your truck falls under the water pump recall. they replaced mine for free 5yrs ago. since the pump will be out, I'd suggest putting a new serpentine belt.

    I just had mine done, paid a local shop $400 and took him the new pump, serp belt, thermostat and 2 gallons of coolant. Parts alone was $160. Its not hard but there's a lot to move out of the way to get to but the pump itself is easy. That's what the mech said as far as labor charge.
