    Ok guys need some advice. I searched around and found a couple of different TSB's on this problem. My truck has 79k miles on it so the 5yr/60k warranty is out. My local Kwik Kar oil change says they can do it for $245.74 but I'm kinda worried about having my truck worked on by a quick lube joint. They take good care of my truck for oil changes but never have actual work done there.

    What do the experts out there suggest?

    Thanks,

    B

    never let a quick lube place do it...search for locals taco on the forums, find and make freinds, buy a case of beer and buy lunch, and i am sure youcan find someone here to help you do it yourself, and you will learn how to. if money isn't a problem go to the stealership.

    I agree on the quick lube shop.

    Chester thanks for the link. I actually read that one. I love my Taco and I'm just bummed to have to spend money on an oil leak. Not what I expected from Toyota. But hey, it's still a great truck.

    Does the leak drip on the ground or do you have to crawl under the truck and look?

    Any idea if the cause is a problem on all 07 Tacomas ?

    yes it drips on the ground. the odd thing is I just had the oil changed which is why I took it back to kwik kar. i thought it was a loose filter or some overflow from the filter housing.

    from what i have read it's a common problem. i think (hope) toyota should take care of it being a common problem. but i may be out some $$$ it sounds like. :mad:

    If it's like the rest it's the timing cover leaking. Known problem that has a tsb on it. You might want to take it to the dealer and complain about this obvious design flaw. They might give you half off.
