2002 Tacoma 80K miles ,OK went for a state inspection and the shop said needs both catalytic converters replaced ,cost $800.00 I paid in full,3 days later the light come on Eng check, they the first shop said take it to some other shop they deal with that has more up to date equipment to to find out where the real problem is now this 2nd shop said I hope the first shop put the California converters in it because it says so on tag marked under hood.made in california. "well the second shop changed a oxygen sensor and the Eng light is out for 2 weeks now its fixed right [no charge], OK back to the first shop and they want another $400.00 because they had to pay the 2ND shop that to change the oxygen sensor? should I pay him when he got $800.00 out of me cash and he knew he screwed up and couldn't fix it in the beginning and charged me for 2 new catalytic converters that maybe I didn't even need and he admitted he doesn't have the right updated equipment to check all things out , and I still don't know if I got the right California type converters in it so total He got $800.00 cash and wants $400.00 more =$1,200.00 would you pay him the $400 or walk away ?
#546 of 547 Re: front end problems from lack of grease? [vlok]

vlok-Thanks for that info and your reply. Sorry for the delay in responding; I've not visited this site in awhile, as I was relocating from CO to NM recently. I'll check this website out and see what goes. My Bilstein shocks are now shot at 73K miles, and I'll have to replace them first to see if that helps any of my steering and handling issues. If things persist, I'll have the local Firestone dealer here take a look and see if they think the tie-rod end or other greased components are still at fault. If so, I'll go to this website and see what can be done.

Oct 31, 2010 (1:00 pm)
I have a 2003 tacoma pre-runner that i had converted to 4 wheel drive about 10 months ago. I recently noticed that my front drive shaft constantly turn even when i am not in 4 wheel drive. Is this normal?
