I have been cranking it about ten-fifteen mins b4 i leave for work in the mornings. The knocking goes away quickly. I'm just tired of having to give it special attention. Luckily I live in Mississippi where its rarely cooler than 60 degrees between March and October. Like I said from the beginning, I just wish I knew how to solve the problem. I mean it's a Toyota, I'm not use to problems.
Speaking of special treatment, a remote start would make it much more convenient to start in the am. Walking out in the garage in my bare feet when it 30 degrees is not my Idea of a good start to the day.
Any ideas on a remote start system???
