Question about 2001 Toyota Corolla
I have had my water pump replaced 3 times over the last year. The first two times it was replaced the auto shop used the same type of water pump and the last time they used a different maker. These different pumps have lasted only a few months the last two lasting about 2 months total. Is there something else wrong with the car that is making these water pumps fail?
Call your dealer & give them your VIN number. I believe your water pump is defective & Toyota dealer will fix it for free. Bring in your receipts and see if you can recoup your costs on the other water pumps. Make sure you register for car for other recall information with the dealership.
According to the website:
"Toyota Motor Corp. is recalling 2.77 million vehicles around the world for a water pump problem and a steering shaft defect that may result in faulty steering - the latest in a spate of quality woes for Japan's top automaker."
Of those vehicles, some 620,000 spanning five hybrid models, including the Prius, have a defective water pump in addition to the steering shaft defect. Those vehicles were produced from 2001 to 2010 in Japan, and from 2003 to 2011 overseas. Another 10,000 vehicles with only a pump problem are also being recalled."

is better for you to change your engine.
because if the belt is felt working all the valve and pisotns inside the engine is going to colide in each other soo you have to change all the things. and may not work at all too. so put in your doing things, changement of the engine.

Hello tinaromano1: The factory specification are to replace the belt every 90,000 miles in severe service. I would recommend to replace at 90,000 no matter what the service would be. Keep in mind should the belt break there is always a chance engine damage may occur. Should you need further help just ask. Thank You for using FixYa. Roger

weak fuel pump, clogged injectors, air or coolant temp sensors out of specs. Timing belt was put on wrong. Timing is off. Map sensor out of specs. You do have a light on. Fixing why the light is on may fix your problem.
