#64 of 490 Oxygen Sensors
Jan 04, 2005 (6:52 pm)
I own a 2001 Tundra SR5 with 41,000 miles. The first Oxygen sensor went bad at 35,000 miles and was replaced under warranty (3 year/36,000 miles). The check engine light recently came on and the Toyota dealer told me it was another O2 sensor but now OUT of warranty. Wanted $252 plus labor.
I called Toyota North America and was told that there is an "Enhanced Warranty" on the O2 sensors, good for 7 years or 90,000 miles. I brought this to the dealers attention ("gee, we didn't know about it"), and they are now ordering the parts.
So be aware of this and if you have paid for oxygen sensors, go back and demand a refund.

Just be careful the "enhanced warranty" only covers 2 of the 4 O2 sensors. If you get lucky the one's under the warranty get covered if the other two go out you have to pay for them.

those black caps are the covering for the coils that generate the high voltage. in other words, there are individual coils for each plug on newer engines. Plug wires and distributors are becoming a thing of the past (good thing). Remove those caps and you will expose the spark plugs.

Jan 09, 2005 (2:13 pm)
Anyone find a way to disable the daytiime running lights? How about fixing the fog lights so they stay on along with the high beams? How do I change the fog light? Any suggestions on higher wattage bulbs for the head or fog lights?

I have been experiencing a squeak/chirp from the bed area for some time. Not when I run over any serious bumps or potholes, but more on uneven road surfaces es. This seems to cause the bed to shimmy as opposed to bouncing.
Is this the noise you are referring to?
#72 of 490 Re: recent problems with 2000 Tundra [jbeezer]
Jan 10, 2005 (12:15 pm)
I'm told the 2000's were supplied with rotors which were too thin. Mine is a 2000, and per a tsb I had the rear drums replaced, calipers, etc., and front rotors machined at 22,144 miles. The problem came back. Had rears turned at 37,706 and rotors replaced at 37,900 with new, improved rotors at no charge. I was out of warranty, but all past problems were well documented. I changed dealers after giving up on service from one, got better service and the service manager talked to the dr who personally delivered the rotors on his next visit to the dealership. My truck has been excellent with exception of the O2 sensors which were both replaced twice. The only way to cure your brake problem is to replace the rotors regardless of what the dealer tells you that turning them will do the trick. Once they heat, cool, warp, you have an continuing problem which only becomes worse after every turning.
#73 of 490 tundra spark plugs and transmission fluid
Jan 10, 2005 (12:25 pm)
I've got a 2000 Limited 4wd with 40,000 miles. Nowhere in the owners' manual does it give recommended fluid changes unless it's used severely or used a lot for towing. What is the recommended change interval? I tow a 1700 pound boat 50 miles twice a year, the rest of time unloaded.
I'm due for spark plugs too, and want to know why non-platinums were used, and if there's any problem with installing platinum plugs.
