#888 of 2179 Potential problems 2002 2WD Seqoia? Please Advice! Brake?
Oct 28, 2004 (4:05 pm)
I am new to this site, owned new 2002 SR5 2WD Sequoia with only 10,000 miles. Because did not drive much, so far have not noted any problem (knock on wood) for my Sequoia. I have read there are many problems for the Sequoia on this site. I know very little about TSB. Noted that there are many redesign or improvement for the model later than 2002. Before run out of guaranty, Any one please advice all the potential major problems may occur to this model under TSB or guaranty that will be fix or replace by TOYOTA. How do I check or isolate the problems and approach the dealer to make them replace the redesign and new improve for this car. I am sure that definitely the brake issue needed to take care. What can I tell the dealer about the brake? Thank you very much.

I had an 03 Sequoia Limited,and now have an 05 Sequoia Limited and both home links were all illuminated. The E/M,1 dot,2dots,3dots,and the mode button. They are definitely lit by bulbs. I suggest telling the dealer to look at a new one on their lot. I can't believe they didn't already do this? Good Luck!!

Thank You very much! I am not crazy. I am going to the dealership and ask to sit in a new one myself, and I will wait until the time change this weekend so it will be dark outside and then maybe they can see what I am talking about!
#891 of 2179 Intermittent Fuel Gage Failure
Oct 29, 2004 (1:23 pm)
I have a 2003 Sequoia limited. Recently the fuel gage has failed intermittently at the empty position when I start the vehicle. After about 10 -30 minutes it starts to slowly creep up to the proper level (close to full). This has happened on two separate occasions. Has anyone else had this problem?

#893 of 2179 engine ticking noise completely fixed
Oct 31, 2004 (6:52 pm)
My 2000 Sequoia's engine ticking noise was completely fixed. My dealer, Parkway Toyota, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, found a cure for the noise. They re-mounted a part of fuel injector to another part of the engine room so the vibration from the fuel injector will not transmit to the body frame and to the cabin. Now my Sequoia is better than ever, as now I do not hear the engine ticking sound that was making me weary from day one, for about four years.

With only 9200 miles on my 04 Sequoia, I have my "VSC OFF", "VSC TRAC"s and my "Check engine" lights on. A mechanic nest to where I work had the scanning too to check it. The result, a bad oxygen sensor. I know that this can and hopefull will be fixed under warranty but it is such a downer. Never had any engine/major problems with the other vehicles I have owned. Maybe I was just lucky with the other vehicle. The vehicle will be taken to the dealer to be fixed, would like to know what they have to say with the part going bad so quick. If it does get fixed and it goes bad again, I'll definitely will be getting rid of this vehicle. Has anyone else here had this problem?

apparently this is something that people have dealt with before and not really a big deal. The Tundra seem to have more probs with the O2 sensor. but it is the same engine. I am dealing with the same prob and will get it fixed this afternoon.

You may have a cracked header. Early models had this problem. Does it sound different?
