I just met with the service manager at a local Toyota dealer, and he said the loud engine noise during extreme cold weather was from the pistons. He indicated that Toyota is aware of the noise, but has no way of correcting this complaint. In the future, Toyota is considering coating the pistons to reduce the noise. He assured me that no damage to the engine would occur from this issue. Since I have a full 7-year warranty, time will tell if he's telling the truth.

Yes, there were problems with the O2 Sensors but Toyota has extended their warranty to 90K miles. As far as brakes; I couldn't tell ya, never had a problem with them. BTW, mine is a 2000 model with 68,000 mile
#89 of 490 Tundra Transmission?
Jan 28, 2005 (8:37 pm)
I have a new 2004 Tundra (new for me). When I am at speeds below 20 MPH, the transmission surges in to gear ! At normal speeds above 20 MPH, It's okay. It seems worse on windy days. Is this normal?

Was the repair made and did it work? The Service Manager at my dealer today claims the repair kit has been revised since 12/24/04 and is now 4 metal lock nuts. Seems like metal against metal will not resolve the problem. I am checking with another dealer.
#91 of 490 Should I buy a 2004 Tundra
Feb 03, 2005 (7:13 pm)
I am looking to purchase a used 2004 Tundra SR5 4x4 with very low mileage...Are the problems regarding the brakes across the board and could effect this truck? The issue raised by Bigere on the transmission, are others experiencing this? Basically, I am wondering if getting this truck is a mistake or should I get the new Hummer 3 or a used Sequoia for a fe more dollars?

You are correct; there is an TSB Revision Notice 1/19/2005 for Rear Shock Squeak: Step 2 graphic has been clarified to show that cushions (washers) are of equal size. Repair field kit and part # is same!! Have Service manager check his "own" company TSB! Seems to have improved my ride! Good Luck.
