    All this does is replace the sending unit with a redesigned one. This doesn't seem so much of a solution but more of a band aid on a cut that does not exist. This doesn't do anything to change the pressure (which is fine before and after this fix), just makes the gauge read differently. Personally, I'd rather save the money than replace parts that are working as designed.

    A good find though, it clearly shows Toyota didn't like hearing the low pressure complaints and changed it on future versions!
