Hi All, Sudden noise the other night when driving home. Checked it out the next day and still persistent. From my googling efforts and reading forum posts, it seems like it is the infamous water pump. I am in Adelaide. Been quoted $1980 at one toyota stealership (typo) and $1468 by another for the replacement. The usual story is that it is engine drop and will take up to twelve hours. What are your experiences with this? Anyone had theirs done at a non Toyota Dealership? Please see video below that shows where the sound is coming from.. https://youtu.be/FNoV4xhn3fA
Hi guys It's been a while but thought I would post a thread to get some expert help from current and previous owners of the mighty 2ZZGE. I noticed a couple of drops of oil on the garage floor and had my mechanic look under the car where he said he could see oil around the water pump.

So my questions are: Is it likely that the water pump can leak oil? Has anyone else had experienced this same issue? Wh
Hiya all, As a relatively new owner of a Toyota Kluger I'd like to start a topic string around situations where owners may be caught out by unnecessary costs in maintenance and repairs.

Two repairers without correct knowledge, said need to drop engine out to replace, and quoted it as a +$2500 job. Toyota Service Centre here in Townsville can do it, engine in place, for mid $600 mark. Would love to know of other situations where as per usual...best visit your Toyota Service Cen
It's been a while since I've been on (literally have had no time for many months)... but had a fairly catastrophic failure of the water pump this morning with zero warning at any time previously! Had the car serviced on it's usual schedule about 3 months ago - the 90,000 km major service. No leaks reported, no abnormal noises, no cooling issues found. Back on the 50,000 km service during my usual fluid checks, I had however noticed a sudden drop in the coolant reserve reservoir; but at the service shortly after I found that - neither Toyota nor myself could find any sign of a leak, so we put
