    Is it worth getting this fixed? 1300 dollars since I'm at 78k miles.
    It's not that bad but that's alot of money

    I just noticed it today and then I saw the tsb up to 60k with doesn't help me. I bought this truck from a guy who was leasing it but in order for me to buy it from him , he had to first buy the vehicle he was leasing from Toyota. It's an 2007 and when I got it it had 46k. So would they have done a 7 year 100k power train on this? I'll check Monday just curious yalls thoughts

    i got quoted around 700 from an independent mech. I cleaned it up real nice and found the small crevice. Its so minimal and scarce that i think I'm just going to wait it out till it gets bad.

    What yalls thoughts on maybe putting a small layer of engine silicone adhesive on the crevice making sure the surface is clean and dry? would i be wasting my time?

    Supposedly there are dealers who try to do this under warranty. :eek:

    I have done such things before. Sometimes get lucky, other times not.
