    Hi i bought my first tacoma today for only $4800 its a 1999 Sr5 TRD 4x4 with new mudding tires. It has 194k miles on it and runs good only physical problems i have seen is 1. the brakes will stick u push them in and they dont come all way back out causeing it to drive whit them in and will burn them up quick. Any idea on how to fix this? and 2. there are no turn singles! I check the fuse and the bulbs and there all fine only thing i can think of is a relay. Are these hard to replace? and here are the trouble codes the ODB-2 gave me i dont know what they mean mabye u guys know.

    did you try googling the error codes? if not take it to an auto parts store and they tell you what they mean and a relay is easy like a big fuse u just need to find it

    Worn out caliper boots can be the issue with your brakes. The boots around the caliper piston act like springs and pull the caliper piston back out after braking. This may not be the cause of your braking problem but it is a good place to start.

    on the brakes I would guess a Master cylinder rebuild may be in order.

    P0172- Clean your MAF with MAF cleaner

    • The MAF (Mass Air Flow) Sensor is dirty or faulty. Note: The use of "oiled" air filters can cause the MAF to become dirty if the filter is over-oiled. There is also an issue with some vehicles where the sensors leak the silicone potting material used to protect the circuitry. There could be a leak
      .
    • There could be a fuel or delivery problem
    P0770- Shift Solenoid E Malfunction

    Try flushing your tranny and changing the filter

    Remove the transmission pan and the filter will be right there. You could also be low on fluid.

    Heres the pics of the truck i had taken off the timming belt cover to inspect a rubbing sound but believe me i don't drive around with that off. Also i noticed that the truck sets up higher in front then in the back is that normal? if not what would cause that bad shocks or leaf springs?

    and in the 4th pic is the rigged up relay i have yet to figer out what it goes to
