Great Thread!!! Thanks for sharing...
I recently replaced my secondary fan blade & motor... I didn't notice and issues with water pump leakage..
I did a quck inspection last night in the areas shown and still didnt see any problems with dried fluid.
I'm going to try a take a closer look at both the air and drain holes soon..
Just to make sure there are no signs of problems.
My coolant bottle was sitting at "Low", so I also added about 6-8 ounces of the Toyota Long Life pink fluid.
Basically, to bring it right back to "Full"
(Make sure you check or adjust fluid on an over night cooled
I guess its normal to lose about that much of fluid in over 2 years of operation and/or approx 35K miles...
