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.

Check Engine Light Due to Failed Oxygen Sensor

One or more oxygen sensors may fail resulting in illumination of the Check Engine Light.

Toyota Recall For Lower Ball Joint Issue

Toyota issued a recall on the lower ball joint due to the possibility of premature wear from improper finishing in production. The ball joints will be replaced under the recall. There are two separate recalls combined here, one applies to 2002-2004 and the second to 2004-2006 Models.  Please contact you local Toyota dealer to see if your vehicle is included.
