#16 of 86 2007 Toyota Tundra 5.7L High Idle
Sep 02, 2007 (7:24 pm)
I have a 2007 Tundra with the 5.7L engine. I was just wondering for all the people with the same engine size, how high your truck RPM's jump to in the morning startup, and about how long it takes before the RPM's drop below 1000. My truck's RPM's jump to about 2000 RPM's and don't drop below 1000 until about 45 seconds to a minute after startup. I know all about cold startups and how its normal for the RPM's to be higher in the morning due to colder temperatures, but I dont ever remember my truck's RPM's jumping that high and taking so long to lower to a normal RPM. So Im just curious as to how your trucks are in the morning?

I have a 4.0 v6 2006 SR5 Tundra. Each time I start the truck it takes the oil pressure guage almost 6 seconds before it will register. In other words, after I start the engine, the guage reads zero pressure for about 6 seconds then it will shoot up to about midway. Has anyone else had this experience?

I have a 2008 tundra and i have the same thing. Mine will rev to about 1800 rpm when i first start it the morning and hold that for about a minute, and then it will gradually start to come back.I only have 600 miles on it and will take it in and see if this is normal for this engine. I also have an issue with the oil pressure which i'll take up with the service rep when i take it in.I'm like you in believeing that this is a little high of a rev when you first start it. I'll let you know what they say about it when i take it in.

Does anyone out there know what LSD stands for? It is with the traction control section of the 2008 owners manual .

According to the service rep i talked to about my 08 revving on a cold start, he said that was normal for that engine. So i guess i'll just hang on when i start it cold.
#23 of 86 Engine knock,5.7 tundra.

My 07 5.7 tundra 4x4 crewmax developed a lowend knock apprx 4k miles.After 2 visits to the dealer the factory rep approved a complete engine replacement at 5300 miles.I have only put 300 miles on new engine so the jury is still out on wether the new engine will be ok.This 5.7 doesn't seem to have that sewing machine smoothness of my previous 4.7 Tundra.My local dealer has already replaced two other 5.7 engines.So far my ownership experience with this truck has been a major disappointment.Anyone else out there with the same problem?

Had 11 Toyota's for over 33 years and finally got my first bad one.....Engine, trans ecm does not play well together.....Engines knocks rattles sounds like the 6.0 diesel ford......trans shifts like crap..hard shifts, knocks......dealership took it in for 4 days and road tested it 4 miles and called and said it was nothing wrong with it but that I had put a aftermarket oil filter in it and that caused the engine to knock....but....it still had the orginal oil fill and filter from the factory.....Still got all my same problems.....Wife will not drive it, says she wants to get where she is going.....and back.......Wish Butler/Macon would trade me out of this problem....WOW A $33,000 white lemon......dave
