These trucks have been out since 2004 so I think it's time we start a list of the engine failures. Be it a defect from the factory, bad oil pump, bad bearing, hydro-lock etc.
Please keep the typical "my engine makes clicky noises" out of here. I'm talking major issues.
Also if you got it fixed what did it cost and did Toyota warrant it.
