#39 of 69 Re: 2008 Tundra Clunk Noise After Take Off [harringtonway]
Feb 07, 2009 (7:01 pm)
I have an 08 Double Cab 2wd with the 4.7 / 5speed auto. I've noticed the clunk too. It only happens intermittently. I am not sure that it is a transmission problem. It may be related to the stability control system pressurizing or something like that. There is a separate sound that I hear 100% of the time, and that is the ABS pressurizing. I hear a high pitch whine, then about 50 yards from my parking space I hear a clunk and the whine goes away. This sound is the ABS. If you get on a muddy road and hit the brakes, you'll hear the ABS activate and repressurize itself. (My 2000 Nissan Frontier 4wd had a similar sound when the ABS activated. I became very familiar with it off roading.)
I've got 13k miles on the truck and it runs and shifts fine, so I am not terribly worried about it. If I find out something definite, I'll post it here.
If you are really worried about it in the long run, and you don't have very many miles on your truck yet, you might try buying an extended warranty from your insurance company. Geico charges me about $5 a month for a 7 year / 100,000 mi warranty with a $250 deductible. I'll probably never need it but ...

I do have the extended warranty and prepaid service...which was cheaper, for 5 years. But I don't want to break down.
It's going in for its 5,000 even tho it's barely 3,000 but it's been 5 months now.
#41 of 69 toyota tundra NO START
Feb 07, 2009 (7:43 pm)
I removed the battery on my toyota tundra 2004 with 4.7 V8 for several hours while I did some work on my snowplow. Now it will crank but not start.
Do I need to reprogram a security key or something?
Is there some security immobilizer on this vehicle?
Help, I need the truck. Note, all I have is a plain key with no chip on it that I can see.
#42 of 69 Homelink Button Lights

I'm a new Tundra owner ('06 Double Cab Ltd.) and I noticed that that 2 of the 3 homelink buttons are not illuminated when I turn my lights on. Can anyone help with bulb replacement?

Don't worry about replying to this post; I figured it out myself after getting a bulb part # and tip off of a Tundra Solutions web post. Remove the 2 screws in the sunglass storage bin and pull that whole assembly straight down. You can then easily remove and replace the bulbs with a small screwdriver. The Toyota part # is 90011-11038 for the bulb.
#45 of 69 Synthetic oil for 08 tundra crew cab?
Aug 02, 2009 (4:56 pm)
I just bought an 08 tundra crew cab recently and I was wondering what any of you guys recommend when it comes to synthetic motor oil. Thanks for your help.

I have 22,000 miles on my 08 5.7 Tundra crew max, and have had every single oil change done using CASTROL FULL SYNTHETIC 5/20.. Usually change it every 4,000. Could probably make it to 5,000. I recommend it for your tundra.

I have this noise sometimes, and you can buy a spray, and spray the belt. That should take care of it.
