    Here’s my spark plug. Gapped correctly. Just noticed my coolant overflow is empty. C483042A-716A-4985-9EEC-D07803E30794.jpg

    Did you get this figured out? I didn't get a chance to get behind the dash, and my truck is still at my work.

    I didn't even think of that. I have a list of upgrades I need to do before i start towing. Whats a trans cooler cost? and how hard is it to install?

    - 4.88 gears ($2000)
    - Distribution/Sway hitch ($800)
    - Brake controller ($250)
    - Rebuild Icons ($200)
    - Mirror Extensions ($170)
    - Add on my sway bar (free)
    - Trans flush

    Also i have the ultragauge too, but i cant seem to figure out how to get the trans temp to show up, how did you do that?

    You can get a much better aftermarket cooler for pretty cheap. The install is actually not terrible

    I'll say it right now, that's a blown head gasket the way it's clean at the electrode.

    @CBenfell what do the rest of the plugs look like? Leave that plug out and after a few hours inspect that cylinder for coolant.

    I agree. Not oil fouled AND he’s loosing coolant. If it hasn’t overheated it’s probably worth just pulling the heads and putting new gaskets in.

    For sure! there are a bunch on etrailer.com that's where i ordered my brake controller, i went with the REDARC Tow Pro Elite. the module you can mount out of sight and the knob i can just put in right where all the switch spots are on the left.

    Etrailer.com is an awesome store, they have so much stuff and tons of info!

    I don’t have a scope to stick down there. I will check #2 plug and see what’s up.

    A guy on here installed a much larger aftermarket trans cooler with an install step by step somewhere on here

    Edit: good place to start

    i bet that cylinder is steam cleaned. check your oil just in case. make sure you dont have a milkshake. if you dont, then changing out the head gasket will probably be all you need. probably just steaming off all the coolant and its only leaking into the combustion chamber and not into the oil passages.

    Here is plugs (L to R) #3,#2,#6
    I still have a P0306 Code
    I know coolant in overflow can fluctuate but as of now there is none. I changed oil yesterday and it was black like normal. I did plugs 20k ago at 120k miles.

    Safe to just not drive it?

    I paid for the warranty when I bought the truck and felt dumb once I was told they’ll weasel out of every claim they can. It might have ended up being worth it if the head gasket is diagnosed and is covered?

    Those look fine, but so far, whichever cylinder that was you pulled the first plug from is compromised. You could drive it, but not long distances, and religiously check your coolant before you go anywhere. I'd take it straight to the dealer and tell them your concerns, I'm not sure I'd mention your investigating, but just that you noticed the coolant is disappearing with no obvious sign of where it's going besides internally.

    How much longer do you have left on your warranty? Is it a Toyota motor Corp warranty or 3rd party?

    It’s a the lifetime 3rd party sell your soul type. The soonest they’ll get me in is Tuesday morning. I am bummed.

    On another note, who wants to buy my mods before I trade it in? If they’re going to molest it I’m not sure I want it even if it’s good as new.
