Failing 2GRFE'S


SCOOTA44

Recommended Posts

There has been 2 engine failures in recent times, both caused by waterpump failures, both vehicles had below 300K on the clock. Has anyone heard of this happening? Im rather concerned.

What year / Model etc ?

We're talking about 2 cars our of how many? Not to mention the 2GR-FE is used in other cars as well. I wouldn't really start to be getting concerned about all this.

Still a concern, though I am wondering, like the previous V6 the waterpump is replaced regardless if its ok or not at 300k. Maybe this should be done with the Aurion too. I do have to drop the engine out soon to fix an oil leak and replace the manifold, so will put one in then.

just my 2c.

I had one waterpump failure recently, vehicle was company car and driver kept driving it. the vehicle shut itself down and driver let the car cool down. we replaced the pump and vehicle is perfect still.

thats good then, just keep an eye on fluid levels and temp guage.

Just an update, I spoke with one of the owners, and the head gaskets blew as well, and it was cheaper to get another engine rather than repair it.

It generally is, due to the labour required to do so correcty.
