2007 Toyota Tundra Problems

Ticking Noise From Exhaust Manifold

The V8 models can experience exhaust manifold failures. A leaking exhaust manifold will sound like an exhaust leak or an audible ticking noise from the engine compartment and will be especially pronounced when the engine is still cold.

Vibration from Driveshaft and Clunking Between Gears

Four wheel drive models of the 2007 Toyota Tundra may suffer from premature failure of the rear driveshaft (prop shaft). Failure occurs at the u-joint due to insufficient material strength for the application. 

When failure occurs, vibration increases with speed, and popping or clunking between gears is audible, especially when downshifting to accelerate or when shifting into drive or reverse. 

Toyota has issued a revised part which will resolve the issue.  

 

Check Engine Light for Rough Idle and Loss of Power

A defect in manufacturing may cause camshaft failure in the 2007 Toyota Tundra. The camshaft is too soft from the factory, and cam lobe wear is inevitable. This may cause:

  • Check engine light illumination
  • OBD trouble code p0300
  • Rough idle
  • Loss of power
  • Poor fuel economy
To correct the issue, the camshaft must be replaced using the revised part number. 
Maintaining the engine properly with the correct engine oil and oil change intervals can reduce the risk of camshaft failure. Also, letting the engine warm completely before any spirited driving or towing will help.

Seat Heater Wiring Shorts And Causes Fire

For vehicles equipped with aftermarket accessory seat heaters, the seat heater elements may short circuit when the seat cushion is compressed, and result in a fire hazard. Dealers will disconnect the seat heaters and refund the purchase price of the seat heaters free of charge to resolve the concern,

Seat Heater

Southeast Toyota is recalling certain vehicles because the seat heater element may become damaged as a result of compression of the seat cushion. The damaged element could short causing burning of the seat cushion, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will disconnect seat heaters with copper strand elements and refund the purchase price of the seat heater accessory to correct this concern.

The Master Window Switch May Overheat

Toyota and General Motors are recalling certain models because the power window master switch assembly in some of these vehicles was built using a less precise process for lubricating the internal components of the switch assembly. Irregularities in this lubrication process may cause the power window master switch assemblies to malfunction and overheat. This could result in the switch melting or possibly catching fire. Dealers will inspect and repair or replace the master window switch as necessary.

I have a 2007 Tundra crew max, eveything is fine with it except the navigtion system wont light up. It still works but it is to dim to see.
I bought this truck w/ 40,000 miles and it has been the best truck I've ever owned. Only complaint is that the engine is so beefy, that I am having a hard time keeping money in my wallet due to the price of fuel.
I wish the Double Cab has larger 2nd row seat like the Crew Max, while maintain its long trunk (6.5' vs 5.5' {Crew Max}). On the '06 Limited version, both 2nd row seat and trunk are roomy and long. Also, my 07' Double Cab SR5 doesn't have full back window rolling down like the '06 or Crew Max, instead it has just the small sliding window.
