It is unfortunate that a bunch of people that have never driven a Tundra are posting unfavorable comments. I had a Tundra that I traded only because I wanted a true 4 door. Never had a single problem, and as a professional mechanic, I offered to look at hundreds of problems with Toyotas. Suprise, they all got fixed before I had a chance to check them out. If someone complains about a vehicle, chances are they don't even own one.
#460 of 490 2001 Tundra Clutch Squeek
Aug 15, 2006 (10:59 am)
I have a 2001 6 cyl manual shif long bed tundra that produces a squeek everytime I depress the clutch. Does anyone know where the squeek is coming from so that I an lube the #$% out of it. I have tried numerous places and it still squeeks. Please help.
P.S. It is our weekend vehicle that only has 37K miles on it. We love it because when we go camping, we can sleep in the 8 ft bed comfortably and we're off the damp ground. Plus, it is really easy to carry all the toys (quads, bikes, etc.) when we go to the desert as well.

I have a 2000 Tundra sr5. The K&N does not work for me in the winter. (MLPS, MN). I've had the K&N for 4 years. For the rest of the year I get about 1 mpg better around town. I do get 19 mpg+ on trip highway driving. My Truck has a bad manifold (Dealer won't fix) Second O2 sensor has failed( Dealer won't cover) and my front brakes also rotor problem.

I need to know what's the best price (before tax & lic) for a regular cab v6 automatic, & aircon Tundra 06 along the Gulf States. I know Toyota just upped the rebate from $2000 to $3000 ( if you're a Toyota consumer).
I hope I don't have to drive that far to get a few bucks savings. Thanks for the information. MAC

You may want to check your spare tire. I have the same problem with my 2000 Tundra when I drive over uneven or bumpy roads it squeks alot. I tried everything until I realized that the spare moves under the bed and squeaks because it is loose. Have the dealer look into the tightening system of the spare tire. Let me know if that fixes the problem.

Sure Mac no problem. I purchased the oil filter adapter and filter adapter heads from lofa industries. There web site is www.lofa.net. I did not buy their hoses because I would have had to find a machine shop to crimp the connections to their hoses since they do not do this. So I said hey, NHRA used AN fittings all the time for fuel and oil assemblies. So I called summit racing equipment which I had a catalog and ordered Russell endura series that swivel. I used AN12 fittings but you can use AN10, I just wanted the larger diameter hoses. The fittings off of the filter adapter that is mounted under the front frame and fender well on the drivers side are AN12s with a 45 degree angle and the AN12 fittings off of the adapter to the engine oil adapter are with a 90 angle. I then purchased 10 feet of Russell metal braided hoses AN12 which gives you a temp rating of 350 degrees plus along with their lube and sealant assembly kit and an AN12 wrench since the fittings are aluminum and you can damage them with a regular wrench. I then went to work and installed it myself and routed my hoses thru the drivers fender well by cutting a small hole in the rubber flap that attaches to the well. I also used grade 8 bolts, lock washers and fasteners to attach the filter adapter head to the frame just back of the front bumper. I purchased them online since I could not find them at Home Depot or Lowes. Anyway after all said the total cost was approx. $300 for everything. I use a Fram extended guard 7500 mile oil filter PH8A which holds one quart of oil and Mobil One extended life oil. Hope this helps. Gary

Man, that was awesome. Thanks. BTW, do you think Toyota will void my warranty if I go this route? Thanks

No I do not think so. I asked my service tech at my dealership and he said no. I do not know how Toyota could void the warranty, since you are increasing capacity and running a cooler oil supply. In addition, I purchased a cool can assembly from JC Whitney for about $25.00. This is a metal aluminum type heat sink that wraps around your filter and also acts as additional cooling plus it helps to protect my filter when driving down the road. Hope all this helps you and good luck. Gary

that is not necessarily true. I have posted negative comments about the tundra because I have experienced many problems with the one I OWN, I have had several toyotas in the past and haven't had nearly the problems with those. For example, both of the exhuast manifolds were warped on my tundra and toyota refused to fix one of them.(the other was fixed under warranty) it doesn't take a genius to figure out the manifold problem is a factory defect. I was able to get toyota to foot a little portion of the bill but it still cost me well over $500. imho, toyota's quality is starting to mirror that of the american made vehicles. and with their exorbitant prices, I will shop for a different brand the next time I look for a new rig.
