Question about 2001 Toyota Corolla

2001 Corolla water pump several replacements

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.

SOURCE: 1999 Tercel. Timing belt/water pump interval change?

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

Engine overheating after 10 minutes. leaks small amounts of green coolant after parking. water pump replaced 2 years ago @ dealer. radiator replaced last summer @ dealer.


Greetings:

How many miles on your D, and what engine does it have? The service interval for the cooling system with its oem green coolant is every 3 years or 36K.

When was it last serviced? Where under the car does the green fluid appear when it leaks?

I recently bought a second hand 1994 model toyota corolla SE limited edition,the milage are already 191000 km. with proper mentainance,how long does this unit last?5 years more or 10 from now.?


Toyota is a good car. If there is a proper maintenance, it could go to an addition of 100000km until it dies . We have to go by the distance since it determines the wear out. If you can make this distance in 10 years, then it is yes for 10 years. If you can make this distance within 5 years then it can be also yes. Maintenance during the period is including timing belt change, water pump, and radiator replacement. Oil , oil filter, air filter, and fuel filter need to be replaced per maintenance schedule, then you are good with a condition that you have a good compression ratio at the time you bought the car. Have shop to check this before invest in the replacement. Good luck.

1996 toyota corolla life of timing belt


Average replacement mileage for a timing belt is around 60,000 miles. Many cars I have purchased had over 100,000 miles on them and had never had the belt replaced. Try to use original equipment belts or high quality after market belts when replacing. Cheap belts will not last as long and could cause serious problems if neglected(example cheap alternator belts will squeak, stretch easily, and not hold up.). I always replace all the belts when doing a job this intense. If your car has high miles it is a good idea to replace the water pump at the same time you do the timing belt.

How do i change the water pump on my 1996 toyota corolla


The water pump is driven by the timing belt. You should plan to replace the belt while you are in there. Below is a picture that shows the pump. and a link to show the steps.

Leaking timing tensioner 1.8l 1998 corolla


Time to have the timing belt and water pump replaced. If you are leaking antifreeze you will need to have the water pump replaced for sure and while your in there have them replace the timing belt at the same time because it will save you money in the long run, I know from experience. Hope this helps.

Does the Corolla 2003 model have a timming belt or chain?Does the water pump has to be changed at 70K miles? Thanks. Adrian


Adrian,

Until 2002 Toyota's had a timing belt. After 2002, Toyota's have a timing chain. Manufacturer/dealers recommend replacement of the timing chain at about 90,000 miles. I've talked to several mechanics - including the dealer - about the cost of changing out the chain. The lowest price I found from a very reputable mechanic is $260-270. He told me that if I brought in the part, he'd reduce the cost. The dealership was almost double!

Re: water pump: I haven't found anything that stated it must be changed at 70K miles. Hope this was helpful.
