I have no idea what happened. It was parked in the driveway for 6 hours before it woke me up @ 3:30am popping and cracking.

:mad: So Sad! :mad: Keep us up to date to what the insurance company "decides" what the "actual" cause was. Spontaneous Combustion?

Kind of looks like arson to me - if you look at how the fire and heat was dispersed throughout the lower part of the engine compartment.

I hope you get it worked out with the insurance co.

Ouch, hopefully you're not past due on your vehicle loan, that's the first place insurance is going to look :attention:

Dang sir! Sorry to hear that.

Maybe in a few months I could take 'em off your hands! I could meet you driving through in like Paducah.. or something like that.

On the Tacoma; the truck powers up 4-6 hours after shutdown to purge the fuel tank. This "purge" lasts +/-30 seconds. I suppose the Tundra has the same system, however I've never been in the garage when it's done it. I wonder if something went wrong while it was doing the "purge".

Good thing the truck wasn't parked in your garage!
