Hi Guys and Gals,
I own a 05 Tacoma 4X4 TRD Sport packaged DC LB. Bout it 3,000 miles ago with 70K on her. I performed my first service myself, found the L/F strut leaking, steering rack leaking, and I have developed a intermittent crank "no start" condition. But thanks to this forum I now have a TSB for the no start for an ECM reflash (possible fix) But I am starting to think this truck had it's A$$ beat for the first portion of it's life. I have been hearing an engine tick (not related to the other issues found on this forum) It's starts at approx. 120 degrees and will go away and come back at approx. 173 degrees where it will stay and be constant. O/K I have an appointment with the Toyota dealership I purchased this from on January 2011 tomorrow. They have made no promises but agreed to look at my truck and determine needed repairs. I love my truck, but I am debating if I should ask them to buy it back, take a little loss and regroup and buy a different truck to keep for good. I am "thinking not hoping" someone on here has been through similar SH@T and gave give me some advise. Thanks guys for having an awesome forum and an abundance of good information. Have a Blessed Easter weekend.
