#173 of 490 2005 Tundra - Engine problems
May 31, 2005 (3:43 am)
As I had posted earlier regarding my bent valves on a new truck wih less then 500 miles. Update - I picked up my truck from the dealer after 1.5 weeks. They replaced the valves and a few other caskets, etc. I have to admt that I was treated very well by the dealer, they gave another nice truck to drive etc. Toyota Corp has also extended the warranty on the engine past the standard period. The truck is running just fine, but the final verdict is stiil out till I get some mileage past the "breakin" period. Will keep posting with updates.

Suspension recall :front control arm lower ball joint. NHTSA Recall: 05V225000. Your going to LOVE this one!! Due to manufacturing issues, the surface of the ball joint may be SCRATCHED and they assembled the units which may lead to excessive wear and looseness, resulting in increased steering or ball joint may seperate resulting in loss of steerng control and a crash could occur without warning. OH! WONDERFUL. 7 THOUSAND Vehicles!

Sorry Tundranator, those are the only complaints/comments I have right now. I'll try and drudge up some important problems in the future.

first: when toyota "RECALLS" something, it is NEVER mandated by the goverment, which most "RECALLS" usually are. what toyota really does is a "SERVICE CAMPAIGN". they find out there is a problem and they bring the vehicles in themselves before the goverment requires them to do so. this hardly ever happens, but that's toyota's committment to its customers. it is my understanding (and i may be way wrong here) but toyota has only had a handful of vehicle actually have this problem that they are service campaigning these vehicles for... last report i heard was 6 vehicles actually had this problem.
#177 of 490 2005 FOG LIGHTS
Jun 01, 2005 (1:50 pm)
Just picked up my 05 access 4WD, TRD. I now have about 300 miles on the truck. Everything seems well. This is my 3rd toyota. While reading the manual it said you must take it to the dealer if the fog light burns out for them to replace it. Are they NUTS??? Take the time to go to the dealer to have them pop in a new buld. Is it only me or is somthing wrong here? I have always loved my Toyotas have had very few problems. But the more I read from this board the more worried I get.

Would this have to do with a popping sound in the front end when you cut the wheel sharp one way or another? If not any one else hear this in there truck?
#179 of 490 Tundra making rattling noise with K&N intake
Jun 02, 2005 (9:22 am)
Hello, I just installed a K&N intake kit on my truck. After installing it I drove my truck it sounded great and then after 5-10min driving I started to hear rattling noise when accelerating around 45mph. I took it off put my stock intake and there was no rattling noise . Yet again I installed the K&N and followed the directions carefully and made sure that nothing was lose and still it made that noise. I know that it makes a wooshing sound with K&N but it makes rattling noise when ever in higher RPMS around 45mph. I have called K&N and they said its normal, but how can it be normal when there something rattling loudly only when the engine warms up it does not do it when its cold. Can someone help me I am very frustrated. Thanks

That is normal K&N makes the whistling noise when you are acceleration because it is sucking in so much air.
#181 of 490 Re: 03 Tundra Squeak [canno]
Jun 04, 2005 (3:35 am)
I have the 2005 Double cab SR5 TRD 4 x 4....lately it has the sound of Birds roosting all over..The dealer said it is because of the dry weather and the rubber bushings are getting dried out...presently we have had a monsoon of rain and its still there. Another of the many things the dealer knows nothing about. I did spray Wd 40 on the rear shackles and lithium grease on the door hinges to quiet it down some. but the "birds" are still there. Good Luck. Wish i had a better answer but like the dealer...I have no real clue where its coming from as i sprayed everything i could find that could be rubbing
