    Had the Taco (4.0 Crew cab) in for a tranny flush n' fill at the dealership yesterday. They kept it for a day to fix a small oil leak. They told me that this leak has been appearing in a lot of Tacos from this time. I belileve they called it a timing cover leak, but the leak could be seen by getting under the truck and looking at the right (pass. side) front side. They weren't sure whether or not Toyota would be putting out a TSB on it. Towing the car hauler down to Florida next week, so I was happy to get it fixed.
    I use Mobil 1 and change the oil every 5K.

    Sure is. Which is why I took the time to post here so other people could check to see if they were having the same problem.
