#15 of 69 Re: Tundra Fuel Filter [capt2]
Aug 08, 2008 (6:21 pm)
If your truck is like my 2002,the fuel filter is under the truck on the drivers side along the fraim rail.I replace mine every 30000 miles.It's funny that Toyota has a service interval for adjusting the valves (I can see the average person buying an assortment of valve shims and taking there heads apart!) but they don't have one for the fuel filter.This filter doesn't look like anythong special so I can't understand why it wouldn't have to be replaced.The first time,I installed a Toyota filter,the second,a Purolator.They're easy to find.They're a little tricky to remove because Toyota didn't install a flexible line going to the filter,so there are 2 hard lines pressing tightly at both ends.I've found if you remove one of the lines from the plastic retainer,and, with a little muscle,you can angle the filter and release the lines.

Yes I think I might be having a similar problem. I was doing about 60 MPH on the Parkway with the cruise control on, and out of no where my vehicle started shaking, and I almost could not get it stopped. I had it towed into Toyota, they they have told me that they couldn't find anything wrong with it. I can still drive it, but it will do this on and off now. I have noticed at 30 MPH that I have a constant vibration now. Mine is a 2008 Toyota Tundra Crewmax Cab 4X4. I will be taking it back in soon to get them to look at it again. Can you please describe what happened to yours.

Aug 15, 2008 (5:58 pm)
To properly change the transmission fluid in any modern day automatic you need to use a transmission flush machine which hooks into the transmission cooler lines and flushes all old fluid out and replaces with new. You can go to the dealership for this service but can also have it done at an independent shop or quick lube for around $120. JUST MAKE SURE YOU FOLLOW THE MAINTENCE INTERVALS.
#18 of 69 2000 tundra accelerator failure
Nov 03, 2008 (7:59 pm)
my dad has this truck and has had a problem recently of the truck failing to accelerate, pushes the pedal, nothing happens. the truck just idols. if he stops and puts it in park, shuts off the engine, then restarts, the problem goes away. he thinks the cruise control might have something to do with it since everytime it has happened it has been after using the cruise. he took it to dealer a couple times for check engine light, first time they couldnt find anything wrong, problem with accelerator happened again. now they want to charge him $1300 bucks for a part and they have never heard of the problem, never sold the $1300 part. has anyone heard of or experienced this problem?
#19 of 69 2008 Tundra Clunk Noise After Take Off
Nov 04, 2008 (7:16 pm)
I have a 2008 Toyota Tundra Regular Cab and when ever I back out of a parking space and then put it into drive and start to drive - it almost immediately makes a single clunk noise underneath. I have taken it into the dealership twice - the first time they said they could not hear it but it got worse so I took it in again and they said that the noise was normal. Has anyone else heard a similar noise coming from under their Tundra? Is this truly normal? Thanks, harringtonway

I have a 2008 Toyota Tundra Crew Max with 10,000 miles on it, and when ever I back out of the driveway and shift into drive I hear the same noise that (HARRINGTONWAY) hears. A loud clunk. Just for your info I just got back from the dealer about 6 hours ago. They drove the truck and shifted in reverse and drive. They told me that they didnt hear any noise. I am not sure what to believe. But I can say that I didnt here any noise like this when I bought it. Not sure what to do. I was told by technician that the drive train on the Tundra is built with slack in it, to allow movement during hill or bumpy surface driving..Let me know if you here anything different. Thanks.

I have a new 2008 5.7 offroad 4wd and I hear the clunk too.
I think that there is some sort of built in governor due to the heavy tow payload which prevents it from peeling off when you step on the gas. The clunk is sort of a delay when putting it into gear.
When is the first service due on a new truck? Mine are included but I can't find it in the literature.
I have exactly 1700 miles on it now.

the door stop on my under warranty 07 regular cab broke and they are not covering under warranty.
initially i had a vibration at 15 and 25 mph and took it in said they replaced a transmission converter
the drive train in general seems to be very temper mental on my 07 5.7l auto with occasional jerks, bangs, clunks, and generally crappy transmission of power to the ground

#24 of 69 Toyota Tundra 2008 transmission noise
Jan 04, 2009 (8:37 pm)
I am not pleased with what seems to be ocassional transmission clunking type noises in my 08. It seems like there is slippage inside the transmission, because sometimes the truck shifts very awkwardly. Toyota in El Paso TEXAS says nothing is wrong, as they drove it and found nothing(of course).. Dont know what to do. Any comments welcome.................
