#49 of 69 Replacement windshield wiper blades
Jan 27, 2010 (9:30 am)
I tried something new - they're called Trico Tech Beam Blades (I guess they came out in oct or nov 09) and they fit the Toyota Tundra. I've been a Trico NeoForm guy for a while, but I tried the new Techs because they have a new mounting system that allows the wiper arm to sit slightly lower than in the past. The Techs are beefy as hell and look great with the new, lower side mount. They came with complete removal and installation instructions - very easy. Got them online. I like to change the entire wiper blade vs. just changing the rubber blade refills because of the abuse the ice and snow put them through - I figure better safe than sorry (plus much less hassel than dealing with those refills).

#54 of 69 2006 Tundra Crew 4x4 front end noise
Mar 24, 2010 (9:14 am)
Has anyone experienced a rotational noise in the front end? It seems to get loudest around 35mph and during colder weather. I have had it in to Dealer 4 times and they even replaced right drive shaft. Didn't solve anythng. Very frustrated and just seemed to have started between 35 and 40 thousand miles.

Hi there,I have an 2006 Tundra ,4.7,4X4.What is the life expectancy of my timing belt?Also ,what does the manufacture recommend? What is the belt made of ? Thanks Harry...

as far as I know, the tundra doesnt have a belt, it has a chain, good for the life of the vehicle. older models had belts, but they were converted to chain, with zero maintanance reguired. good luck

I have a 2008 Tundra Crew Max, 4WD, with 5.7 engine. It has 54,000 miles, and I was planning to change oil in both differentials, transfer case, and possibly tranny. First vehicle I've owned without a tranny dip stick/fill tube. I have been using Amsoil fluids in EVERYTHING for many years, and am more than satisfied with their products. I was just seeking help/advice on procedures. This truck has always gotten very poor gas mileage. Any advice for that?
Thanks so much, for any help!

as far as I understood, the fluids are good till 100,000. I put an AFE cold air intake on my 5.7, 2008. Along with a Unichip computer chip. about 30-42 extra hp, and if you keep it on the less aggressive timing setting, ur gas mileage should go up at 1.5 mpg more.... good luck
