I also have an 04 tundra, when it is started then put in gear is when it sounds just like a diesel. It lasts only a couple of minutes, but I believe I can hear it slightly even when it is warm
It started after it had over 10K miles on it. I took it to my local dealer and they said it was normal, and would not hurt longevity. Time will tell.
#101 of 490 rough ride
Feb 24, 2005 (3:23 pm)
Our 2004 Tundra (V6) is the one of the roughest riding pickups I have been in. I have ridden in 2 V8 that were almost as smooth as a car. Why is mine so rough? What's the ride like for you other V6 owners. I am extremely dissatisfied with mine!
It is not a smooth ride on a smooth street, and heaven help if it is a rough one!
thanks for any help/suggestions!

I currently own a 02 V8, but I had a 00 V6. Both have a carlike ride. You may want to get that suspension checked out.

Maybe you have already checked you tire PSI - but that is one thing that can cause a ruff ride.

Did you change your rotors or just your pads? I'm thinking about the Brembo rotors to stop the warping.

I have been an exclusive Toyota Driver for the last 25 Years. have had nothing but exceptional service from them. I have owned 77 Celicas and 81-83 long bed 4x4's and the first 4runners and I currently run a 90 4runner with 270,000 miles on it. Clutch gave out at 226,000 Ac went at 166,000 but I suspect the dealer screwed it up whilst relacing head gaskets that were prone to failing mine never did. I have been looking at the f-150 but the forum has scared me off I am afraid. I have been looking long and hard at the Sequoia as well. I, like you, am chasing the used ones. My suggestion is go for the Toyota's .My son and I travel and shoot compititions. Seems they (Sequoia) have some piddly issues when you chase the forum down.
I will drive the Chevy's as well but I bet it'll be Toyota again.

I discovered the same thing with a 1986 4Runner after a prolonged play session in the mud and water. Make this note to yourself as well. 1983 Supras aren't good splash toys either. In my wilder days I caught an unsuspecting bus rider after a rain in San Antonio left a large pool of water near his stop. I got to pay a 225.00 stupid tax for cooking the altenator and being ornery.

Does anyone know how I can reset the "maintenance required" dash light on a 2005 Toyota Tundra?
#108 of 490 Tundra Manufacturing Cycle
Mar 28, 2005 (8:00 pm)
I currently have a new 05 Tundra Double Cab 4X4 on order and it is in "Status A" at the plant. What is status "A" and how long should I expect until it is completed manufacturing and shipped to my dealership in Indianapolis?
#109 of 490 The odometer is off on my Tundra
Apr 02, 2005 (5:15 am)
I have checked my odometer several times now with a GPS. On a 50 mile trip the GPS showes 50 miles, the Tundra shows 48.5. Has anyone else checked the odometer? I need to check it at longer distances than 50 to 100 miles, but it looks to be off the same amount so far. Ron
