    After driving a 1981 Toy pickup for over 200,000kms, then putting 190,000kms on my beloved 1991 pickup, I recently picked up a used 2008 Tacoma Access Cab in the US with only 2,108 miles on it - I figure this will be the beginning of a long relationship.

    This may not be the case - I have had more questions and problems with this truck in 2,000 miles than I had in the other 400,000kms I put on my past two trucks.

    So to keep a long story short, I've looked at some threads and looks like you guys know your stuff and I'm hoping for some help.

    I jump to the correct thread soon, but just want to thank anyone for ideas if you offer them.

    Cheers
