Well I went and put gas in and the light went out! So I will see if it comes back on when it gets to half a tank. Is there a senser or something that might need to be changed or reset ?

have your truck get a check engine light diagnosis (autozone does them for free) my suspicion is that it may be an O2 sensor. My 99 does the same thing and one quick way is to disconnect and reconnect the battery terminals. This will reset the light.
#561 of 598 01 tundra transmission problem
Sep 06, 2006 (7:43 pm)
I have an 01' Tundra with 65k. My tundra makes a loud clunk noise which is definately coming from the trans. It happens when I'm going maybe 50-60 mph when I let off the gas only, not when accelerating. When the problem first started it would shift in to fifth gear, well overdrive. Now when I'm driving at 60mph my rpms are at 2K, I know that's not right.
I turned the o/d button off and it would stay in 3rd, but when I turn it back on, it does shift into 4th, but that's it. Doesn't trans have 5th gear? I think my problems are in the overdrive gears. Has anyone had or is having these similar problems? Please let me know. Thanks.
#562 of 598 Brake Light Problems - Tundra
Sep 09, 2006 (1:34 pm)
Neither of my brake lights work. The fuse is good, and the bulbs are good, what could this be?!
The high-mount brake light DOES work, so it doesn't appear to be the pedal switch.
This is a 2000 SR5 Double Cab Tundra 2WD V8 with 90k miles. I'm the original owner, I've never had any other problems, there have been absolutely no modifications to the truck, everything is stock. It has never been in an accident, I've never towed a trailer, nothing like this at all. The wiring harnesses at the tail light assembly all look fine.
Any suggestions appreciated. Should I take this to the corner shop?
#563 of 598 1999 Tacoma Prerunner...How Many Miles?
Sep 20, 2006 (6:09 am)
Trying to keep costs down; considering a 1999 Tacoma Prerunner, has around 145,500 miles on it. I hear how Toyotas can easily last 200,000, but don't want to buy a car that only has around 55,000 miles left before it starts falling apart. How long can these trucks last?
#564 of 598 Vibration/Noise Problem
Sep 22, 2006 (11:46 am)
I have a 1999, 2 wheel drive, manual transmission, extended cab Tacoma with 112,000 miles. I recently had all 3 u-joints replaced as well as the support bearing. Immediately after the work was done, I noticed a slight vibration in the steering wheel while driving between about 20 and 30 mph. The other day, I noticed a vibration sound coming from under the truck that seems to be at about the same frequency as the vibration. The sound and vibration occur between 28 and 40 mph. At all other speeds it runs smooth as silk. Now it gets real interesting: If there's a passenger in the truck with me or if I am carrying something over about 100 pounds either behind the front seats or in the bed, the sound and vibration go away! This of course makes it very diffcult for the mechanic to determine what's going on since when I ride with him, nothing happens and when he drives it alone, nothing happens either because he weighs about 100 pounds more than me! Also, the frequency of the vibration/sound doesn't seem to change as the speed varies from 28 to 40 mph and it's there whether or not the clutch is engaged. Revving the engine with the truck parked doesn't result in the sound or vibration. After not being able to hear of feel anything during the test drives, the mechanic gave everything a thorough going-over on the lift (I watched) and could find nothing....everything seems "solid as a rock". Any suggestions?
#565 of 598 Transmission problems
Sep 26, 2006 (4:36 pm)
Just a note to see if anyone is having problems with their 2005 Tundra Double Cabs with automatic transmission.
I currently own one, purchased in January after 3000 miles the transmission needed replacing (vibration at 35 mph). I didn't ask many questions. On my ride home the repaired transmission would not shift properly and often dropping from 4th gear to 1st. I quickly returned to the dealer and after running a diagnostic I was told the computer needed to be reflashed and it seemed to solve any problems.
Now 4000 miles later and another crazy ride of the transmission not shifting out of 1st gear I was told by the dealer I needed a new transmission again. This time the service rep after much questioning stated that Toyota is having quality problems with some internal parts.
All of the work has been done by a Toyota dealer under warranty but I'm thinking this is a bigger problem. Toyota promotes quality and long lasting trucks but I'm having a hard time believing this.

Sep 27, 2006 (11:55 am)
I have a 2006 Tundra DC AWD. I have experienced similar problems. My will downshift going up or down hill. When it first started it would shift at 3800 rpms or if I applied the brakes slowed to 35 mph and accelerated again. Now when it does this I must pul off road and stop and turn off engine. Since this only happens after driving freeway speeds for over 1 hour, the dealer says they have no way of duplicating problem. Transmission test is normal. This truck can not haul or tow as much as my old 2002 Chevy 1/2 ton. Toyota claims in commercials it can. Dealer will not address this problem, only saying a Toyota is different than a truck from a US manufacturer.
This is the most disappointing truck I have ever owned. I have owned trucks for over 40 years. It is SUV in truck body.

just got my truck this week. I am making a punch list of little things for when i go back to dealer next week. wanted to see if any one eles experienced the same things. so when i go back i can be at least some what familiar as to the problem solutions etc.. here is the one i am concerned the most with. When i put the truck in reverse and with light pressure on the brake peddle, the transmission or possibly the brake makes a grinding or rattling noise.

Did you ever find a solution to this problem? I went to inspection today, and all of a sudden all I have is the top brake light. Any info would be appreciated.
