#371 of 490 Exhaust Manifolds
Jan 19, 2006 (1:12 pm)
that little peck peck sound when your truck is cold could very well be an exhaust leak caused by defective exhaust manifolds that toyota installed. i have a 2000 tundra and it had an exhuast manifold replaced at 36000 miles under warranty. now at 70000 miles the other side has gone bad, only 900 dollars to have it fixed. I have bought nothing but toyota trucks and I have to say i think toyota is turning out some low quality vehicles and not backing their products like they used to.

that is exactly what my dealer told me and he said it will cost only 900 to replace ONE manifold I am beginning to think DODGE

First, I do not own a Tundra. I have a 2004 4Runner, V8, SR5. I believe (and I could be wrong) that the engine and transmission are identical in both vehicles. I had the exact same "thump" that you describe. After coming to a stop, at times, it felt as though I got rear ended. This would also happen (again, at times) after I had come to a complete stop and took my foot off the break to start going forward (again, a thump). After reading about similar complaints on the 4Runner forum, I followed the advice of others who sounded like they knew far more about vehicles than I do. I had the dealership lubricate the slip yoke and this completely took care of the problem. Is your Tundra four wheel drive? If so, I would suggest having this done to see if it takes care of your problem. It drove me nuts...and now that it is fixed, I could not be happier with my vehicle. Good luck, and let me know if you have any other questions about the problem or the service.

My 2000 Mazda 4 wheel drive has served me admirably on the steep mountainside roads here in Alaska, and rough construction access drives that I have to go to daily for 6 winters now; but it's getting tired. I'm considering a new Tundra that can take advantage of the 6000 Pound GVW Tax exemption (100% right off in one year)
I usually put the Mazda in four wheel drive in September and don't take out until February or May. I notice that the reviews all say not to run in 4 Wheel drive on dry pavement. With our long winters it's impossible not to drive on pavement that is intermittently dry and ice/snow covered every few miles & minutes.
I'm concerned that regular or continuous use of the 4 wheel drive may cause the truck problems. Can you provide any input on this issue? Thanks from the far North

I have a 2K also and had the same problem. I swaped out my stock rotors with "power slot" after market rotors and they work great. I got the slotted version but you can get them slotted or drilled or slotted and drilled.

I did the same thing about three weeks ago. I have a 2K Tundra and they replaced it under that warranty.

I have a '01 Tundra 4x4 that the ABS brake actuator is bad after only 30K miles. The dealer stated they never go bad and this dealership has never replaced one, yet I am expected to fork over the $1500 for the repair. Has anyone else had this problem?? Also, how do you find out about technical service bulletins? Toyota dealers are not very forth coming on te TSBs.
#379 of 490 Captain's Chair for 2000 Tundra
Jan 25, 2006 (9:16 pm)
I own a 2000 Tundra with 164,000 miles and I have had essentially no mechanical problems. I did just replace the oxygen sensors (intake), but otherwise it runs like a champ. I do find that the captain's chair on the driver's side has started to sink and wear down some. I am a relatively large man (6'2" AND 235 pounds), but not so large that I think I would have worn out the seat prematurely. I checked at the local Toyota dealer about ordering a new captain's chair and my question is does anyone know where I can purchase a new chair instead of looking for a used one at a junkyard or ordering from the dealer? I plan on driving my truck for another 3 years or more and would like to purchase a new seat?
Thanks for any suggestions.

Don't discount the junkyards, many of these places have 05 & 06 Tundra's that have been totaled by the insurance companys & although the exterior may have been severely damaged the interior can be like new.
If you contact a major auto dismantler they can do a search for you, it will be half the price of the dealer & they are sometimes negotiable on the price.
Hope this helps.
