Mine almost has 20,000 on it. Had my brakes redone last year. The orginial Dunlops were crap, replace with 245/75 16 MIchelin LTX. These tires are great towing tires, but they will not stop shaking. (The Dunlops were worst.) It is impossible to blance them. The alignments are almost impossible to get right, like it was when it was brand new. I have just come to the stage that the truck is not possible to be correctly aligned (meaning center steering wheel). The truck doesn't pull one direction or the other, but the wheel is in the 10'o clock position. This is my fourth Toyota truck, and my second Tundra. I would have to say that this truck can pull my camper pretty much anywhere and it does it very well. However, this truck shakes and is no where the same caliper as my 94 T-100. I really wish that Toyota decides to build a TRUCK next time on the new supposedly 3/4 ton truck. The V8 is great, but the suspension, brakes, and steering feel is just awful.
If toyota makes another independent front suspension truck, I believe I will change.

HELP! We accidently drained the transmission fluid (instead of the oil) when
doing our first oil change on our 2005 Tundra. Now we'd like to replace
the transmission fluid we accidently drained. The 2005 Tundra doesn't have
a dipstick. There are no diagrams or explanations provided in the owner's
manual or online. Please explain the steps we need to take to do this
Thanks, Desperate and Clueless

Their is NO DIPSTICK. The tranny is a sealed system. Call your dealer for instructions, I'm sure they'll get a good laugh.

Hey everyone,just bought a used 02 Tundra 3 months ago it now has 51,000 on it and yes I have that same pop/or clunk when you turn the wheel sharp.I had an old Nissian 4x4 that did the same thing it it was because they put solid bushing on,so they made a noise, Don;t have any brake problems in fact just had the rear brakes ajusted because the brake pedal went down to far and now the brakes are right there when I push the pedal. I still have the factory Bridgestone tires on and could get close to the 60,000 which is the life of the tire and they seem to be good tires but I'm going to put BF Goodrich tires on in the fall I live in Wisconsin !!! Going to buy a 27 foot travel trailer camper on Friday and the dry weight of the camper is 5,900 pounds can anyone tell me how there Tundra tows with all this weight.Thanks, I'm alittle stressed because I'm used to towing a 10ft popup camper and of cousre all my GM goons told me I should have gotten a bigger truck!! But consumer reports has the Tundra as the most reliable truck out there and I'm done with GM that's why I bought a Toyota .I'll keep you all posted !!!
#191 of 490 2001 V8 Tundra squealing noise from engine when cold?
Jun 16, 2005 (6:34 am)
I've been ignoring this squealing sound for over a year now, but I'm thinking it may be something serious. At first I thought it was maybe the belts squealing, but I have noticed that the squealing seems to become more pronounced into almost a chirp-like sound everytime the transmission shifts into a higher gear. I took it to the garage once to have them check it but the squealing seems to go away once the engine has been running for 20 minutes or so. So by the time I got it to the garage, it wasn't squealing anymore.
Does this sound familiar to anyone? It is more of an embarassing problem than a problem that effects the operation of the truck. Everyone looks at me like my truck is going to fall apart when they hear me coming.

Jun 16, 2005 (8:31 am)
I had a rattling problem too.. My cause was due to having inserted the Throttle body helix, and the K&N on my 2002.
I actually had to chop down the intake tube.
This was necessary because my fan was hitting it.
From time to time my intake tube vibrates down and I hear a rattling.
At first it's only a rattling while in gear.
This was due to engine torque shifting.
So I loosened the clamp, re-positioned the intake, and tightened the clamp like crazy.
I wonder if you have the same problem... there is not much clearance there.

Jun 16, 2005 (5:58 pm)
The 2000 Tundra does'nt have an audible warning if you leave the headlights on. If the key is removed and the door is opened the headlights automatically turn off until the key is reinserted and turned on, even if the switch is turned on.
