#144 of 598 2002 tundra fuel injection
Feb 06, 2004 (5:50 am)
My 2002 Tundra V-8 recently began shaking when starting in the morning. My 1st visit to the dealer resulted in new spark plugs for a misfire diagnosis. The same thing happen 1 week later and now the dealer is saying I have a sticking fuel injector and that they "have seen a lot of this lately".He also stated that Toyota has a letter out to their dealer to be on the watch for this problem. Anyone have a similiar story?
#145 of 598 2004 Double Cab Tundra - Front End Shimmy
Feb 09, 2004 (4:45 pm)
My new double cab Tundra has a font end shimmy seen and felt through the steering wheel at speeds of 60-75 mph. Has anyone had a similar problem. One dealer has balanced the tires two times after the original balance and it does not shimmy. After about 7-10 days it starts to shimmy again. I have only 2500 miles so far. The dealer says that the body mounts are softer on the double cab than on the extended cab Tundra and the factory seems to think that is the problem. I do not see how the mounts will affect the steering like that. Anyone have any suggestions??

I only have 600 miles on my DC. I hope this is not a problem to be reckoned with. So far, I have none of this going on. Let us know what comes out of this, please....

Touc and Lewmanjm: What kind of gas mileage are you getting?
Feb 11, 2004 (6:50 am)
So far, just barely over 15 mpg (but the wife has been driving it too - ha) I need to put my camper top on it, or get a t-cover (to stop some of the drag of this looonnng beast)
#149 of 598 o2 tacoma prerunner jolt at 30-40 mph
Feb 11, 2004 (2:15 pm)
I have only had my truck two months, but I am already regretting the purchase. My brakes are getting replaced as I type, warped rotors. My main problem is what I refer to a jolt when I push the accelerator at around 35 mph. It feels like there is slack that is being taken up just before the shift. Sometimes it is so strong the whole truck jerks. The mechanic told me all tacomas with auto trans do it, something to do with the drivline, (BS ), I think it is the tranny. Tomorrow when I pick up my truck I am going to test drive one and see if it also has the "jolt". Even if it does, does that make it Ok.
#150 of 598 Tacoma V6 Gas Mileage
Feb 12, 2004 (8:15 am)
I'm thinking about buying a new 2004 Tacoma ExtraCab 6 Cyliner 4WD Pickup. I've been driving a F250 Diesel since 1990 and am looking forward to something smaller. My questions are, what kind of mileage should I get and how are these vehicles for towing a small (17 ft) trailer.

#153 of 598 TUNDRA BRAKE PROBLEM
Feb 29, 2004 (12:09 pm)
I have a 2001 Tundra Limited with 66,000 miles and am experiencing a very weird brake problem. The problem is sporadic - at expressway speeds of 70-75mph it feels as if my ABS is engaging. The vehicle slows and when I pull to the shoulder and apply the brakes the whole front end shakes as well as the steering wheel. I can feel the front brakes engaging and disengaging just like an ABS stop on icy or wet pavement. After stopping for a moment or two I can reenter the freeway and continue on my way. Problem may re occur one more time as soon as I enter the freeway. Once I pull over again and reenter the freeway the problem disappears. Does this sporadically. Dealership has been unable to duplicate the problem and tells me everything is fine with my brakes. I have had the vehicle looked at by two different Toyota dealerships. My feeling is that there is a problem with an ABS sensor. I have contacted Toyota Customer Support and am waiting for a return call. Anybody have any suggestions.
