I've read the discussions in CL,...but we have to go by what is in our manuals to maintain our warranty coverage in Canada,...unfortunately.

And that was another good point,...outside contamination, how many auto mechanics clean an area BEFORE they work in it?! Not that many,...and NOT many DIYs either

I say seal the feffin' thing, forget about it and it will last
Hey Clubfoot... then you got the schmucks like me... US car, US manual...living in Canada!!! LOL

I'm dreading taking my car back into have the fuel pressure sensor looked at at our favorite EPL dealership Think I'll try Northwest and see if I can get spark plugs with my CN$250.00 coupon

Wish me luck

You make a good point. I don't even think I will even bother about this anymore. If it can't be changed then it can't be changed. Lets hope it does last the life of the car cause i am planning on keeping this for the long long time and i'm already at 135KM. Maybe it's time for the new IS350? HMMMMM. I will get the diff fluid changed thou. According to you it doesn't need changing and you prob right. I just want some peace of mid thou and i kinda drive it hard so i will get ams oil diff fluid soon. I just can't remember what type of diff fluid to get? like the number i mean ...

I can get it from my son but he's working right now, ask Andy, I think they sell Amsoil too, he would know which synthetic one to order.

I just had mine in to the dealer for the fuel leak recall, oil chg and diff fluid change .... they didn't even mention or suggest any tranny fluid change. The standard diff fluid they used is a 75w90 synthetic. I have about 60,000 kilometers on it .... since its going on 6 years old now i am doing it for that reason, more than for the 64,000 Canadian maintenance schedule.

The header of this thread caught my eye though .... because when i picked it up they said they also replaced the water pump under warranty. I gave them the go ahead to replace front rotors and pads as well if needed .... they said the brakes are fine ..... so I'm fairly confident they are an honest dealer.

Anyway, are water pumps an known issue ?

I work at a Toyota dealer. What I cant figure out is that the vehicles that use World Standard fluid, some are sealed, very tough to change the fluid and some have dipsticks which are easy to change.
We get a few 2005+ Tacoma customers who pull the wrong plug to change their oil and I have to explain to them that they need a tow truck because they drained out some of their WS tranny fluid out and its a PITA to get new fluid in!

My car is currently sitting in the shop with a water pump being replaced at 125,000 km. It has developed an oil consumption issue that I will try to get them to warranty (if not, does it eventually cause engine failure due to the carbon build up?)

The oil pump at an lexus/toyota indie is going to cost $150 water pump + $350 labor + $ 50 coolant before taxes. I'm going to get them to do the serpentine belt at the same time for $60 more.

It started developing a noise about a month ago until the last week it was a constant squeeling. I thought it was just the serpentine belt which would have been much cheaper.

This is on a Canadian 2008 IS 250 AWD.

Sad to hear about the water pump failures. Hope it lasts another 4 years at least and I'll probably get rid of the car by then.


Unexpected repairs I'm afraid.
