    You don't understand? Apple products are junk. I have family visiting - 2 different iPads, 2 iPhones, they sorta might or might not work on my wifi. One of the iPads works consistently. The other says the password is wrong (it isn't), or it says it can't find it (ludicrous, I have 3 AP's covering the whole house). The phones do similar nonsense. It's junk.

    Oh, and if you think my Wifi sucks, I've got Ubiquiti enterprise-level stuff, and every single Android, Roku, PC, etc. works flawlessly.

    Hence:

    Apple = Trash

    Well then clearly you're not working it that hard, because you're 80k behind the OP. :laugh:
    I must barely 'work' my truck at all, at roughly 15k a year.

    Op, time to pull your engine, do the repair, take lots of photos and make a write up! These trucks are finally getting old enough/high enough mileage for this forum to actually start turning into a productive one with lots of write ups and good information.

    Wouldn't you be less than happy if the same were done to you?

    Funny, my wife had a 2015 RAV4 that just developed a severe transmission and oil leak at just 77k miles, we also traded in instead of fixing it ($2500-3500 repair) but we got $10.5 trade in (COVID!) so we got another $15k SUV instead with only 20k miles. Made no sense in doing the repair at that point.

    Lemme see if I got this right...You can fix a 4-banger, but a 6 cylinder motor is beyond your mechanical comprehension? Dude, same shit, just two more holes with parts in them. :D

    35k on my 17, OP what’s the secret?

    oh, we just put 10k miles on the 4Runner in about 17 days, does that help?

    Except the main difference is I don’t have to take the engine out to replace a simple timing cover gasket

    Granted, but it's merely a flesh wound.

    People in this thread actually think a guy putting 50k miles a year on his truck has the time to do the repair work himself? Lol

    And before the OP replied with all the other issues he is having I would have said that a vehicle with that many miles will have constant issues after the first big one pops up. If you are doing 50k miles a year you are all but gaurenteed to keep breaking down when you are never close to home. Time to replace it and get the highest millage warranty you can buy.

    Some of us work, 60k+ For my 1st gen, got paid my regular salary +$.54/mile street and an extra $.50/offroad mile to do it also.

    I also sold it at +250k miles still running good and I never had any issues with it. 1st gens were very dependable trucks.
    (It’s still my Avatar until my 2017 proves itself, so far so good...)

    Glad I read through before replying. May be worth adding this to your first post. If the transmission wasn't going as well I would have suggested paying an extra $1000 for a fresh engine to be installed. Best of luck in your new truck search!

    Yeah, you need to shop around and find a good tire shop that also has certified mechanics. Jasper used to yank and rebuild an entire engine for less than that. You cant do a simple gasket change to the timing cover by dropping the radiator, the whole engine has the be yanked?
