    Under the hood the other day adding washer fluid, I noticed the engine leans on my 2010 regular cab 2.7.

    I can post pics if needed..but looking into it from the front it seems to lean toward the passenger side, in other words the engine is sitting at a slant.

    My wife had a 1996 4 banger and I don't remember this being the case. Her Rav4 sits straight but I don't think that really is a good comparison.

    Any help?

    does turning tires to black wall out count? How bout added snug top rebel.
    Are you able to see motor mounts? How do they look? How bout your tranny mount? Those are the first things I'd look at.

    Bama, I'll post up a pic later if that helps. I did grab the engine with both hands and try to move it..solid. My old Chevy Celebrity went through mounts in a year or 2 and that engine was loose as a goose when they failed.

    This for tacomas. It was annoying when I did a 3rz swap into an 85. My buddies 2001 taco is the same way.
