hope everything works out OP. sub'd for results.


what brings you out here to OKC? which dealer did you take it to? Hudiburg off of I-40 is pretty good and I've had no issues with warranty work out of them.

Im in OKC for a month for some job training... really like the area and theres always something cool to do. The truck is going to Jim Norton/Momentum off NE expressway (3). it's the closest to me since im staying over by yukon/mustang.

Tunnel- it would be hard to find the intermittent problem the first time... but this time when it died it did not restart so it's currently dead. hopefully that will help them figure it out.

If this continues to happen and they cant figure it out.. for a 3rd or 4th time.. i'll probably end up processing the lemon law. Disappointing i really like this truck. If they buy it back i'll be buying a ford raptor.

I am amazed at how people throw out statements as fact when they are in fact erroneous. The lemon law is not even close to being applied here, much less one more incident.

Sounds familiar. Have them check the fuel rails.

Have you changed your fuel filter or whatever the dealer said you had? My brother's '96 celica has started acting funny and shutting off when it gets warm. If it is cold it starts right up. Once it heats up it dies. May be something similar to your problem. We changed the fuel filter and it seems to have fixed the issue. Don't really get why it fixed it but it did.

got my truck back today. Jim Norton Momentum toyota in OKC was great to deal with. What they figured out was a blown ignition fuse... which makes me feel really stupid because i checked all the fuses under the hood but didnt even think about under the dash. I had my add-a-fuse in with the ignition for my back up camera anytime mod and that has worked great for the last 10k miles... i dont know why all of a sudden it blew a fuse. Just going to throw away the add-a-fuse and hard wire it to a power source now. It was a cheap add-a-fuse from ebay so maybe it just heated up and shorted out? who knows but im glad this is all it was. Seems too good to be true. Im carrying a bunch of spare fuses because i dont think the add-a-fuse was the true problem.
