#1939 of 1954 Recommended transmission fluid change
Jul 29, 2010 (9:21 am)
I forgot to add this question to my previous post....
Does anyone know the recommended time to change the transmission in a 2008 Sequoia? The manual is very vauge and recommends "checking it" several times if you tow with it, but never states a suggested time to change it otherwise. Obviously, I know this will vary depending upon usage type, but I am still a bit shocked that they didnt have a non-towing recommendation to serve as a reference. Mine has roughly around 30,000 on it now and I'm considering having the transmission fluid flushed because I have no clue about how the previous owners used it (bank repo). They didnt keep good records on it in the logbook either. I found some documentation on the Toyota website that indicates that it was serviced, but no evidence of a transmission fluid change.
#1940 of 1954 Oil change instructions 2008 5.7L

Does anyone have a link or site where I can get instructions on changing the oil in my 2008 5.7L? I've been told it's simple, but I can't even find where the filter is installed. The Haynes books aren't out for this year, and instructions on the web aren't very detailed. The oil filter is now just the paper filter and not the can version like on my 2002 SR5. Any help would be appreciated.

I had the same issue...
2008 CPO Sequoia with nearly gone rubber when I bought it.
I went for the Michelins.
It was steep but IMO, well worth the money. I've driven this vehicle to Florida from Philly and from Philly to Pittsburgh many times. Smooth, quiet and excellent in the wet.
I say, get the Michelins and be done with it.
#1942 of 1954 20" rims and winter tires
Dec 02, 2010 (3:18 pm)
I just bought a used 2008 Sequoia Platinum and so far so good. I want to put winter tires on it and would prefer to have dedicated rims. I inquired with my dealer and he said 20" steel rims are not available. I've asked if the Tundra has steel rims that would fit (since they share the same platform I'm told) and have not heard back. He did quote $100CDN for 18" steel rims.
The vehicle also has the tire pressure monitoring system so I am concerned that the rims would need to be compatible with this. I'm afraid to ask what alloy wheels will cost. Any advice would be appreciated.

I also own a 2008 Sequoia Platinum with the navigation system. I finally gave up and bought a Garmin portable unit. It is a very poorly designed system. My wife's Honda Odyssey van had a factory GPS and it functioned flawlessly, many more addresses included, more user friendly. I went through the frustration you mention for a while and gave up.

I have owned a 2008 Sequoia for 2 years and noticed a paint blister on the tailgait one year ago. Now I have noticed several more developing. Dealer says it's self inflicted. I do normal driving on paved roads and store in garage. Anybody else have this problem?

Woody75: I would like to talk to you about your rust problem. I know they say we shouldn't post our email addresses on here, but I would really like to speak to you at greater length about this. Are you on Facebook by any chance?
