Re: P2440 code story
Sent the jeff cole bypass kit to the buyer of the '05. It worked for my '07 4Runner 4.7 and has excellent reviews, jeff says it works on the '05 Tundra 4.7.
My limited understanding about the jeff cole kit is it works as a preventive measure. I had not thrown codes on the 4Runner, therefore there was no problem with the valves being stuck open, same with the buyer of the '05 Tundra.
I guess on an '05 Tundra 4.7 if the valves are stuck open one will have to get the valves closed first, then do the bypass, which will forever keep the valves closed.
And there should be no emissions testing issues. Seems like an excellent preventive measure, peace of mind thing. Going into limp mode in the boonies towing a trailer would be a horrible thing. And then try to get it fixed in the boonies? Please.
