You can get a GL320 CDI in 45 of the states. Or the new Jeep Grand Cherokee is in Showrooms NOW! Both use the same diesel engine. With a lot less hassle than adapting a diesel engine to your current SUV.

Wow, you are asking for a ton of headaches.
First off, the wiring won't support the diesel, neither will the fuel lines and tank, neither will the front suspension or the drivetrain.
So, unless you are gonna take a diesel frame and running gear and put the Sequoia on it, you are in for a real nightmare.

I would buy one in a flash. I have 90K on my 02. Good for a 1/4 Million the way it feels. I will impatiently wait for a diesel. Hear that Toyota !!

"DOES ANY ONE KNOW WHERE I CAN GO TO GET A DIESEL ENGINE FOR MY SEQUOIA."
Sorry, but you can't. And even if you could, the cost would astronomical (and thus, not economical). If you want a diesel SUV, your choices are 1) buy a 45-state-legal Mercedes (ML320 or GL320) 2) VW Touareg V10, or 3) wait a few years until there are more diesel SUVs available.

#36 of 39 Rpm drop during acceleration
Oct 27, 2011 (12:39 pm)
My 05 toyota sequoia sr5 has an issue with rpm dropping during moderate acceleration,such as merging to hwy speeds. The drop is about 50 rpm for about a quarter of a second and repeats at a regular interval of about one second. It is not intermittent, but very regular. I have replace spark plugs and air filter with no change. Car runs great otherwise. A mechanic suggested it may be related to the magnetic accelerator system Toyota uses. Anyone have a similar experience or a solution?

#38 of 39 2003 Toyota Sequoia flashing key dash light
May 25, 2013 (8:36 pm)
My ex wife was borrowing my 2003 Toyota Sequoia which has been running fine. Today she went to start the car and the security key light was flashing on the dash and the relay under the hood was cycling. It appears that the system is immobilized. I tried the spare key but still nothing. The light stops flashing when key is turned. Did flashing light drain the battery or is this a damaged key chip?
