    It has a timing chain and the repair for the water pump would be at 90k

    a timing chain
    when the pump makes a noise and/or u can move the pulley
    a little parallel to the spindle. When the bearing is bad, it sounds like the engine is going to fall apart
    but it will most likely b the h2o pump. For $400 including parts, get it done by Toyota dealer...saves a lot of frust/heartache. and skinned knucks
