  1. Rounded out the front differential drain plug

    1Gen-Sequoia
    Yes, seemingly-unnecessarily-dumb design. This being a pretty well-known issue, I suspect "heat" right from the start is part of the correct approach. Roy
  2. 5.9 Cummins tundra sitting on Dana 60

    1Gen-Member Mods, Build Threads, Write-ups
    You consider a 4BT? They can be turned up, to make good HP, and they would better fit in a Tundra. Or, Detroit 4-53?
  3. Utility steel wheels; 16x7 for '03 Tundra

    Tires and Wheels
    Any recommendations for low-budget steel wheels for my Tundra in the stock size? Either new or from a reputable wheel rehab place which you have, personally, had luck with. Thanks, Roy
  4. 05 Tundra 200,000 mls never changed tranny fluid!

    Transmission
    Here is my 2 cents. 1. Pull out the Toyota maintenance schedule for your truck, and make sure you are doing everything they suggest. I run into guys who fixate on one or two maintenance items (e.g., change engine oil every 3k miles, change ATF) while blowing off Toyota-suggested maintenance...
  5. 2005 Tundra 222,000 miles first ATF change flush. See filter pic

    Transmission
    Anyone having luck viewing the pics?
  6. Worth investing in?

    1Gen-Tundra
    I would run your VIN past a dealer...hear their recall thoughts. Then there is close to zero downside to taking it to a welder, or two, for estimates. Roy
  7. Help 2000 tundra occasionally stalling and hard start

    1Gen-Tundra
    Man, I know. I once "threw away" an Accord...just could not solve its intermittent stalling. I threw a lot of parts at that thing. One of the few downsides of Toyotas, for me, for some reason, is I have not found a fantastic forum. I have great help with both my Honda, Ford truck, and Dodge...
  8. Help 2000 tundra occasionally stalling and hard start

    1Gen-Tundra
    I would get a fuel pressure reading before replacing the pump. Right now, you don't even know if it is a fuel problem or a spark problem. The truth is...you are not getting much help on this forum. Do you have the issue posted on other forums? Roy
  9. Help 2000 tundra occasionally stalling and hard start

    1Gen-Tundra
    I know exactly what you mean. That is why I was asking others if the dealer might have a reader which could show some sort of history data from the truck. I would still suggest, putting a normal code reader on it...maybe a low-probability solution. But, what is for sure is, throwing parts at it...
  10. Help 2000 tundra occasionally stalling and hard start

    1Gen-Tundra
    Not that it will help, but, I'd cut open the fuel filter to see what's inside. It sounds like an intermittent electrical problem. Which are, of course, the worst. My questions to better-informed readers: do dealers have diagnostic equipment more useful than normal code readers? Tools which...
  11. Help 2000 tundra occasionally stalling and hard start

    1Gen-Tundra
    I was able to poke around on the internet and find a free pdf copy of the FSM for my '03. I don't remember where I found it...but, it could not have been all that hard to find (if I found it). Have you given any thought to power to the fuel pump? Roy
  12. Oil pressure gauge variation

    Engine, Intake, Exhaust, Induction
    I always start by looking in the owner's manual. It should have a description of "normal." I know, when I got my '03 Tundra, the oil pressure freaked me out...but, the manual suggests a "normal" which is close to what I was seeing.
  13. How much towing to use the towing maintenance schedule?

    Tundra
    I often buy Lucas synthetic gear oil, in gallon jugs, from Amazon for a great price.
  14. How much towing to use the towing maintenance schedule?

    Tundra
    I contend it is ridiculous for Toyota to not include differential, tranny, or t-case drain/fills for my '03 under the normal schedule. Same for brake and PS fluid, drive belt, and fuel filter. I don't think you tow enough to go to severe. But, I do think you should develop some sort of schedule...
  15. Ball joint failure / wheel came off... advice on repair, please!

    Suspension, Axles, Brakes
    I have to say, you're lucky to not have had a big wreck. Ball joint failure, like yours, at 70 mph in traffic... Roy
