Found the problem. I made sure to recover every piece of the broken impeller before installing a NEW OEM pump. Hasn't overheated yet.....even on the initial fill.

Sooooooooooooooooooo, next question... What's the level in the hidden fascia bottle?
Second that. Burping it is a pain in the ass.

At least it looks like you found the problem

Sorry if I missed it, But how many miles on car?

Is there no better solution than another OEM pump? Has anyone done an electric w/p on a gen 2?

And as far as burping I used a lisle funnel once when I swapped my rad last year and put a little more coolant in overflow tank and it was fine.

Overheating at Idle

01 GTS w/40k. There's a place in Cali that makes an fancy viper aluminum impeller pump. They call it a high volume/flow. It's $300ish +core though. Tacoma Dodge had new build OEM pumps for $160.


I'm sure you can buy a electric pump from Summit and fabricate to fit. It'd be some work though.

Didn't 00 have a pump recall? If so, I'd bet some of the 01s also qualified.

Funnels don't change how much you fill with. It only changes how easy it is. Adding vent locations however does change the fill volume.

I have mine apart for a timing cover gasket replacement. Although my water pump looks in pretty good shape, I'm debating whether to replace or not.

Hmmmmmm. Decisions.

What is $160 of your time worth later down the road?
