    I wouldn't take it apart though, take it off sure but don't loosen the butterfly valve because getting it re-aligned correctly is... difficult.

    This presumes it is a butterfly though... never seen one on a taco.

    Do you have any pics of how it would look like? I would need to see what it looks like. Is it right under the hood?
