    i just recently (last june) bought my truck and have a warranty until 125,000 miles and only have 58,000 now, and i heard that if i do this myself it would void the warranty do you know anything about this? i guess i would have to have toyota do it and they would prolly charge out the butt for labor

    It doesn't end. I've had my truck since 08 and it just keeps going. Nothing broken...it just eats money anyways. I think having a heroine addiction would be cheaper.

    At least there's interventions for those.
