#1956 of 1986 toyota tundra engine oil leak
Nov 11, 2009 (1:25 pm)
I just noticed an engine oil leak in my 2005 Toyota Tundra ( 2wd, dc, 99k mi ). I have been keeping it very well maintained and have never towed anything with it. The high miles (mostly highway) are due to my long commute to work.
I thought, being a toyota, it would be trouble free ( except maitenance ) for at least 200k miles.
I've seen similar complaints on lower miles tundras and it seems to be the rear main seal. Do you know how much this would cost to fix ?

Nov 14, 2009 (4:21 am)
I have a 2010 d-cab with a 4.6 and i cant get used to gas pedal, it kinda has a delay when driving around town like when i come to a stop sign and still rolling 5mph + - and give it some gas to take off ( keep in mind i dont have a lead foot try to save gas) the tranny seams like its in a higher gear than it should be so when you give it some gas it seams like it slips trying to get to a lower gear. the problem is between 5mph to about 20 mph,the truck is great for getting on the highway its like a rocket and rides great just dont know if there is a tranny prob or that is just how the electric gas pedal works, if anybody eles has the same prob or is it me? p.s. the truck has about 1200 miles on it.

i have noticed the same thing, mostly when engine is cold, and it seems to go away once warmed up. it's a little quirky, but i've gotten used to it. have seen other posts that refer to it, but no one has said it's a problem.

If you own one of the models listed in the recall and have actually experienced the unintended acceleration, please send an email with details of the experience and how it felt.

I'm trading my 2005 4.7L V8 4Runner 77000 miles for a 4X4-5.7L tundra(SR5)Payoff for 4runner is $15,200... after much searching the best deal I got from a dealer is $36,000 0% for 60 months(downpayment of $3000) and a monthly payment of $600.This includes my trade-in.
I live in NY long Island.
Please kindly advice if this is worth.

Im kinda in the same boat. I leased a 07 Tundra, and am looking at getting out of it. The 0% sounds good, but still having to put anything down doesnt appeal to me. Ive been looking at 09 tundras. They are almost 2 years old, theres no difference between the 09 and the 10s. And seems dealers are willing to bargain a little with them. Might be worth checking out.The other option would be to go with the new 4.6 L engine, rather then the 5.7. you lose about 80 hp, but saves about $2000 too. Option 3, would be to buy my 07 Tundra good as new, and only 27K miles... Good luck.

$36,000 was the best price? That seems close to MSRP. In MA, I have received 2 quotes from 2 different dealers for $300 under invoice. The Tundra I was looking at was SR5, TRD package, double cab. Quoted at $32,300. Keep looking.
