    I wish/hope that it is something far more simple than what they are suggesting. Here is the exact description and they really don’t specify whether it’s the intake or exhaust valve.

    Found abnormal compression results. Performed leak down test. Found 80% leak down on cylinder #1. Air is coming from tail pipe. Most likely due to bad valve seats. Need to replace passenger side cylinder head and all exhaust valves.

    The thing that gets me is the truck is running fine and shows no signs that something is wrong. I averaged 19 mpg on my last tank of gas. Crazy!!

    So Carmax towed my truck to Toyota, Toyota won’t repair the vehicle as they don’t participate with carmax’s warranty, but they did some diag. Apparently all the cylinders are down on compression (which I don’t believe) and they’re stating the engine needs replacement. The truck was towed to another participating shop to be diagnosed and repaired

    Any word on your repair? They finally started my repair after weeks of back and forth. They’re replacing the head

    I picked my truck up Wednesday. Here is the list of work they did. But yesterday I noticed a squealing from under the hood at anything above idle. So I'm not sure if it's a belt or a pulley. If it ain't one thing, it's another.

    At least yours is covered by warranty. I just dropped $5K out of pocket on a 4 year old truck with less than 100K miles. I pray I don't have another repair for a long time.

    Jesus!! Did you need an alternator too?

    the $1500 warranty seemed silly at the time of purchase but now I don’t regret it at all.

    I mean that's what it looks like on the last line. To be honest, I didn't ask too much once they had to pull the motor. I assume that's what they would normally do.

    I’d question it, unless you authorized it looks like the replaced it without talking to you about it.

    Taking my truck back tomorrow for the chirping/squealing. He said they'll get it taken care of for no charge, "since I spent so much money already." LOL

    Got the call late yesterday, they found serious scoring in cylinder 1 and the engine needs to be replaced. Hopefully warranty works quickly

    Damn man, I hope it gets taken care of quickly. At least you'll have a brand new motor?? Took my truck in today and picked it back up. Said there was some coolant on the belt, probably from the engine work but they cleaned and lubricated it. All good now. I pray I have no issues for another 4 years. I told the service advisor on the way out I hope I don't ever see him again.
