I just replaced my timming belt on my 05 4x4 limmited tundra 4.7L myself. Not hard to do, just time consuming. I followed a chiltons manual and researched online. Bought parts from PartsGeek.com costing around 250.00 if I'm not mistaken. There are a few tricks you need to know which the chiltons manual explains, one for example is when you put the belt back on there are marks on the belt and cam sprockets that not only need to be lined up but a second set of marks labeled T that you need to line up in order to take the slack out of the belt correctly. Another helpfull hint is to have an airgun with at least 480lbs ft torque to get the crank pully bolt off. I had only a 250lbs ft torque air gun and it didn't get it, had to barrow my brothers gun to do the job. When you feel that you have installed the belt correctly, I advise you turn the crank pully with a hand wrench on the pulley bolt two complete turns to see if the timming marks line up agian, if so you should be good. You can destroy your engine if you try to crank it and the belt is not installed properly, so doing this by hand can save you. Hope this helps, good luck.

I have an '08 Tundra 5.7L with air intake cooler and Gibson performance exhaust. The two improvements push my horsepower up to around 400hp, improve torque, and I'm getting 20mpg on the highway. Around town I can get up to 16mpg but tend to give that throaty exhaust a work out which is also lots of fun. Hope it helps.

My 08 tundra has a faint rotational noise i think is spedometer cable as it seems to come from dash.

My 2006 Tundra makes that annoying clicking Noise as well - I really hear it as I slow down about 8-9 mph and sometimes I hear it at around 31 mph. I have it serviced at Larry Miller Toyota Boulder and they can not figure it out. First I paid $600 as they told me it needed a new front bearing - NO IT didn't - then last week I brought it back after another 2,000 miles and they replaced a rear bearing - still did not fix it - Now, they tell me that it is in the Front differential - WHATEVER. Very frustrated - Great truck other than that - The service on this truck from the dealer is poor - they are stumped and I am frustrated.
