My plastic is off the car, I've done the trans and axels but can't catch a glimpse of the dreaded water pump. I have a tiny oil leak I can see above/behind the generator and below near the oil filter. Is there an oil pump seal I should be freshening up since yes, I have nothing better to do at the moment.
i think the oil pump is inside the timing chain cover so no worries about oil pump leaking like old timing chain engines. at 60k miles it should not be leaking anything. just search 2az-fe water pump and you'll see where it is.
Here's a link to water pump replacement instructions I did a while ago. I replaced the alternator this past summer. Once you have the right tools, it really isn't too bad of a job. The second replacement water pump with green fluid has been working great. I replace the coolant every two years.
