  2. have a starter question

    Tundra
    Team, My starter is toast. Can anyone give me a rough idea of what I would expect to have it replaced? I'm not that mechanical, so would have it done. Looking online at Rock Auto, I see a lot of options for a remanufactured one. Any upside, or downside, to that I should be aware of? Am...

    Out-of-Production Toyota Trucks

  14. Starter point replacement V8 1st Gen Tundra

    1Gen-Tundra
    Unless I missed it, I don't think anyone has posted a how-to on replacing the starter points on the 1st Gen Tundra V8. So, I thought I'd take a shot at making my own how-to. The first thing I'd say about this guide is that it could be better. If someone wants to add something that would make it...

    Hi, I am new and I am here to tell you the dumb trick I pulled over the last week. First of all, I got home one day, parked my truck and somehow didn't close the door all the way. Come out next day - my battery is drained since that lamp was on all night. In dark I hustle my wife's Nissan to the...

    I was having starting problems with my 2004 2WD Sequoia for two days. It would start but it seemed to have a weak charge.

  19. Tundra Starter Contacts Mod

    1Gen-Tundra
    Well after all the intermittent starting problems due to worn out contacts, my truck finally refused to start. Thanks to all the others who have posted how to replace the contacts, it was a relatively straight forward yet tedious fix. I was kind of disappointed that the contacts wore out so...
