Hey guys,

i have a 2010 XB base and there is a noise coming from the engine bay. It can be heard most when at a stop then release the brake up until 1-11 mph is the loudest where is has a whine sound where is progesses faster then it becomes a little more silent after 11mph. I dont see the pink line on my hood but my coolant level is way past the min line. I have 36,XXX miles and the car was bought in 2009 from the original owner. I've been researching and read a couple times that the water pump is covered for 5 years? is this true? i know the car only have a 3 year warranty but is the water pump covered for 5 years? If so i will take it to the dealership tomorrow. Please help guys!

BTW is there any other recalls for 2010 XB's or TSB i found only the sticker for the load capacity.

thanks,
Steven

The MFG includes a 3 year/36000 Limited (aka: bumper to bumper) and a 5 year/60000 powertrain. The powertrain says anything internally lubricated. I would think that the waterpump is internally lubricated. I think the 5 year/60K is ONLY for the original owner. I may be wrong, I thought I read that in the manual. Good Luck!!

So since it is a known issue, you definitely have an argument for them to cover the repair for you.

thanks for the info, so it wasnt the waterpump making a whining sound from 0-10 mph , he said it was the front passenger wheel hub. i got it fixed under warranty.

BTW what is 2010 Toyota Scion Xb Power Train Service Bulletin 285964?

it doesnt say what it fixes or what the problem even was but they reflash the ecu. Has anyone done this TSB? im wondering if it changes any thing to make the car run smoother or get better mpg? Someone has had to have done this TSB. please respond

I haven't had it done and didn't find any details about it on the web either. Maybe a Toyota tech will chime in.
