    First one was 85k... 2nd one 115k and now this one is 151k. New timing belt 2 years ago. Wore out an idle pulley bearing. Runs perfect now. I keep thinking I want to get a new car but 13 years later and it still runs great!

    Just replaced all the idle pulley bearings now. They were all making noise. C8157529-E7C2-4A04-A963-BF3D0E6B844B.jpg

    Glad to seen another long term original owner 07 SR5 here. Galactic gray as well. I have to change mine out tomorrow at 133000. I had heard of some lasting to 200000, so your posts make me feel better about doing it now.

    No leaking but pulley makes grinding noise.

    153,000 on my Honda (V6 car) did the timing belt at 95,000 no water pump. Runs like the day I bought it to this day. Of course now I said it so the water pump will go this weekend! :(

    Are you replacing it with an OEM waterpump or some different brand?

    Naw I wouldn't if no leaks. They'll typically start slowly leaking and give you a little time to get it done.

    That’s what I thought. I was just noticing the mileage at which pumps were changed above.

    Don't forget the fan clutch if you're doing the water pump. At least evaluate it. Some good videos on YouTube. I ordered one and did it when I did the water pump. Was heavily rusted, not moving well.
