#423 of 547 2004 Taco 4x4 vibration problems???
Jun 30, 2006 (8:31 am)
I have a 2004 Tacoma double cab and have had a vibration problem in the front end ever since we bought it. It was purchased used and has 74,000kms on it. Toyota had a recall on lower ball joints for the 2004 models and we just had them replaced. We also have had our stock rims and tires rebalanced numerous times. It seems as if the vibration comes through the steering wheel at speeds around 80-110kms hr. We had the frame checked for alignment and have had most of the front end checked for suspension. I had the truck up on blocks yesterday and when I spun the front wheels it seems as though the tires hop up and down. I almost think possible bent front hubs, out of balance brake rotors or worn bearings...Any Ideas???

Go to tirerack.com where you can calculate exactly what will fit and what will hit. It also lets you see what the rims will look like on your ride.

I just experienced the same problem you had with your 1997 tacoma;went for inspection,got called in;frame totally rusted; needless to say I was shocked !; am in the process of waiting to hear from the higher ups and wondered if you had any luck; the dealer told me this never happens and two very reputable and experienced auto body guys said the same thing; anyway, would appreciate to know how you made out with the higher ups!

to much oil can give the mass air flow sensor problems and a good electrical cleaner should fix it just put oil on the outside of the fillter this will decrease the chanse of oil build up on the mass air flow sensor to clear that code i am sorry to say that battery trick is out dated go to autozone ask for there OBD2 code reader its in loan a tool so it will end up being a free rent and just erase the code with the tool good luck

the bigger the tires the harder to balance make sure you have your wheels balanced by a pro check for bent wheels too. you may want to see about changeing the tires

We are doing some reorganization of topics here, in an effort to make things a little more focused and easier to follow. For those of you who regularly read this discussion, we invite you to check out the new focused discussions here at the Toyota Tacoma Group. We would like you to use these discussions first, based on your particular question or comment. This discussion will continue to be where owners can hang out and make general comments about their Tacos, but if you have specific component questions, we'd like you to use some of the others (e.g. Body Accessories for things like grille guards, side steps, tonneaus).

I have a 2004 Tacoma and need to change the oil. I can't budge the oil filter. Truck has 18000 miles on it I hope the oil was changed since it left the factory.
I have a rubber band type filter wrench and it won't begin to untighten the filter. What's up?
