    Mine was having this problem for a few weeks before it finally threw a code. And no it didn't suggest the sensors were bad.....unless your trying to rob some poor shmuck of his dollars.

    So, after leaving my truck at the dealership for the last week, they Finally were able to figure out that it was the fuel pump. They said they checked the fuel pressure while driving and that was the problem when the truck was shutting off. Thanks to you guys this is what I had been telling them over and over that the problem likely was and how they should be diagnosing it and how the sensor replacement didn't make any logical sense. As you can imagine they loved that.....especially when I was right the whole time and noone would listen. Ha, I hope the rude guy with the HUMONGOUS head felt especially dumb. So, after this they offered me some crappy deal, that they would be nice enough to cover the 8+ hrs of diagnostic time and it would be $900+ for the fuel pump and labor. remember I already paid $850 for bogus sensors. Which we now had proven were unnecessary. So a proposed $1800 for a fuel pump.....wow great deal guys. So, I brought up the $5k I spent with them in the last year, how 6 months ago they diagnosed and replaced my left tierod and then when that didn't fix it, a week later they replaced my steering rack.....which includes the tierod....and tryed to charge me for both, as well as a few other issues that were documented. I explained that I would take my truck elsewhere and never return if this cost me any more than just the pump/install and I'll pay 2hrs diagnostic time. The service manager heard my story, and agreed to replace the pump and let me walk with a zero balance. So end result, a small hassle, new sensors+fuelpump for $850 and I owe you guys all a beer.

    Thanks

    and thanks MidCity! So, with that they will continue to enjoy my patronage, and the ability to milk me for overpriced parts and labor purchases for years to come. Although hopefully now they'll listen to my crackpot ideas when I come in there

    glad you got it sorted out and they made it right (after all).

    now, you don't have a hair on your ass if you don't get it up to 70mph, set the cruise, and climb that damn hill

    Glad it all finally worked out for you. Now, stop going to the dealer! Find a local mechanic you can trust and insist he use OEM parts.

    My parents had a 2003 Acura TL-S and they didn't know about the VSC option. It made it a nightmare driving up ice covered hills.
    I also agree, that its fuel issue. Had the same problem with a Nissan Sentra. Fuel Pump was bad but luckily it had a warranty.

    The VSC will cause the motor to power down. "The VSC Off switch actually handles more than just the Tundra’s electronic stability control – it also interacts with Traction Control (TRAC) and the Automatic Limited-Slip Differential (Auto LSD) features. Basically, when you turn on your truck, TRAC and VSC are armed and Auto LSD is not. This is known as “Normal” mode, and if the truck should start to fishtail or the tires start to spin each system will kick in automatically, braking or powering down the engine as required."

    Here is a thread that discuss traction control and VSC and 0 point calibration (TSB), which I found interesting. traction control problems with lift

    Good to see your problem was fixed. I have had trouble pumping gas since California mandated the new vapor recovery nozzles back in 09. I'll have to find a diagram for the fuel system and check/replace my filter and vents.

    My truck sees high rpms everyday. Never had any problems with the tranny.

    I am glad you got it fixed and I could jump to the last page of this thread to read that it was in fact your fuel pump from the start without all the other drama...lol

    It wasn't that bad, only 22 hostile posts before anybody thought it over and mentioned fuel starvation.
    Good to hear things were made right.

    HAHAAH! Mechanic you can trust.....good one. Been through a bundle of shady one's though.

    So of course I spent the last few days driving around in 2nd gear, redlining it constantly. Just to make sure the problem was solved. j/k

    Side note of interest: My cruise control which was kicking down very violently on any uphill grade, now is SIGNIFICANTLY improved. Still worse than any of my other vehicles but it's usable now and I only need to disengage it on the steepest inclines!!!

    Also, some how my fuel pumping problem where I had to constantly forcefully push the nozzle into the truck is again greatly improved. Not perfect, but much better!

    Obviously these seem totally unrelated to the fuel pump and sensors, but that's what happened. Yay for me.

    And now anytime anyone shows me anything broken.....I just tell 'em it's obviously Operator error, which is hilarious and makes for good times.

    FYI - my 2006 tundra started to clunk a few times and had blips of power loss - kept going, started to up hill and the rig died. Won't restart, didn't try to turnover when turning the key.

    Turns out the wire for the fuel pump had rubbed enough under the truck to expose the raw wire, which eventually shorted on the frame and blew the fuse.

    Fixed the exposed wire, under the driver side about 2 feet back from where the bundle comes through the firewall, and I am back up and running.

    In the past I think I have experienced a periodic clunk from a cylinder not firing due to the electrical issue.

    Hope this helps.
