Tundra 4WD 8-cyl

  • 84,000 miles


I had all the dash lights flashing and the transfer case stuck in 4wheel drive low, an engine misfire and vibration. I took it to my mechanic and he said it was an air pump valve problem. He cleared the codes in the computer and I drove it home. The next morning it did the same thing. I took it back and he got it running again. The weather has since warmed up and it hasn't done it since. That was a couple months ago. I found out that Toyota was extending the warranty to 10 years and 100,000 miles. So I took it to foss Toyota in casper, wy. They told me they couldn't fix it unless it malfunctioned right there on their lot. I contacted Toyota headquarters by E-mail, I explained the problem and was phoned by someone at Toyota. They told me the same thing. I say bullcookies. Those engine fail codes are still in the computer. And I believe they're stalling until my 10 years are up this coming September. This air pump repair is a $5,000 to $6,000 bill. I think Toyota should repair my truck, I bought it from them in good faith, I had to have a $1,000 + engine belt and a water pump put on it already, and now this" what are my options when dealing with a less than honest company" when the dash lights flashing and the transfer case stuck in 4WD. It was parked in my garage and I just started it up on a cold morning. Thank you

My vsc off light has been blinking when I started my truck when I got off work at 3:00P.M. central time. My check engine light is on as well. I brought my truck to auto zone for a diagnostics test and came up with code P2440. My vsc off light came on one day not loo long ago, but went off so I thought nothing of it. Loss of power.

Didn't notice till after a mile of driving but my check engine light, vsc, and 4lo were flashing. I could not accelerate past 50 miles per hour. Unfortunately the Toyota dealership was closed and I took it in to auto shop to get the codes scanned to provide to Toyota dealership. In order to get home I had to get the codes cleared out to get it out of limp mode but I drove it to the Toyota dealership the next day and provided the codes and necessary information. Unfortunately they needed to get the codes off themselves I explained that there was a 2007 and 2008 Tundra ? tsb 032908 but they couldn't verify the problem and told me that next time it happens to bring it in without resetting the codes. Well it happened again today almost a month later. I'm taking the vehicle to a local dealership other than the initial one as towing charges would be outrages. I hope Toyota can get his corrected for others regardless if you have the codes or not it should be a mandatory notice for all Toyota Tundra owners so you do not get stranded far from a dealership or eventually have that issue as it is provided only if you have up to 150K miles or 10years from when the vehicle was purchased.

I got an obd II code P2440 secondary air injection valve stuck open as I was pulling out of the driveway and almost got stuck in the road. From what I've read there are quite a few vehicles affected by this but I never got a letter from Toyota indicating the elongation of warranty on the affected part/S for 2007-2010 Tundra's and sequoias. I'm trying to resolve it right now with Toyota but they haven't given me a firm answer as to if it was warranty related or not.

The contact owns a 2007 Toyota Tundra. The contact stated that the check engine and wsc warning lights were visible on the instrument panel. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who stated that the vacuum system needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired however, the failure recurred four times. The vehicle was repaired each time. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 80,000.

Check engine came on, took to local Toyota shop, checked codes, P0012, camshaft position, "a" timing over retarded-bank one & P0022 same for bank number two. Activated both vvt systems & checked operation of both vvt. All working fine at this time. All four oil control valves test working fine at this time.checked oil control valve filter test working fine at this time. If check engine light comes on again after that, then need to replace camshaft timing gears inside engine. Has Toyota addressed this problem" are there any recalls"

I notified Toyota motor manufacturing of Alabama quality control in late 2007 and again in early 2008 of both of my Tundra speeding up on their own. I actually work at the Toyota plant and was told to not breath a word of this to anyone that it had to do with my job. I have a lot more information on this and Toyota has had me go to depositions over this but have tried to get me to believe their was nothing wrong with the vehicles. I am now coming forward.

Issues with Toyota's secondary air intake pump seems to be a major issue. Since 2007, now Toyota has control over the necessary parts and will release as they seem fit. I have waited over two weeks to get these parts and installed. And the dealership says they have no idea how long it will be could be weeks. They know that the pump has issues and will not fix the problem till it goes bad. And if your driving down the interstate and you lose power that could be a safety issue. My truck broke down in my driveway as I was pulling out to go on a 3000 plus mile road trip. Wish a recall can be ordered to fix the issue before hand.

Tundra 8-cyl

This is a recurring problem. Initially, my truck was taken to a Toyota dealer service center on 3/15/2012 to an issue with my check engine light, slip indicator light, 4-wheel drive (4lo), vsc off all came on, sluggish acceleration/loss of acceleration occurred when driven & my gas mileage/fuel efficiency decreased (my truck appeared to 'run rich'). initially the warning/indicator lights would occasionally stay on when the truck was started, other times they would not. Eventually, they just stayed on whenever the truck was started. When serviced, I was told that the issue was covered by my warranty & the secondary air switching valve was replaced which should have fixed the issue. Just over a year later, 3/19/2013, the same issue has occurred after being told the problem was fixed! the mileage that this occurred at was around 44,000. The problem was presenting in the same way - loss of acceleration/sluggish acceleration (extremely dangerous not to have acceleration while traveling on a highway/interstate), the same warning/indicator lights came on & the gas mileage/fuel efficiency decreased because the truck is 'running rich' again. Took it to a Honda dealership service center to make sure I would be able to drive home. The service technician gave the error code of P2440 which is an error code for the air intake pump. Honda dealership was unable to fix the problem because of the make of truck. Took the vehicle to the same dealership where this problem was initially diagnosed & 'fixed' the first time. Have been told by the service technician that the issue is the same problem as last time. However, this technician has informed me that the reason this problem has occurred yet again, is because there is a passenger side & a driver side part. The one replaced last year was the passenger side. This time, it's the drivers side that needs to be replaced.

2007 Toyota Tundra. Consumer writes in regards to air injection system pump malfunction. The consumer stated while driving, the check engine light illuminated. Almost immediately, there was a sudden loss of power, which almost caused him to come to a complete stop. The consumer took the vehicle to his local mechanic, who informed him of what the failure was. When the mechanic called Toyota about the parts, the mechanic was informed about an extended warranty from three years/36,000 to five years/ 70,000. The mechanic was also informed about a defect with the system, which caused water infiltration, which could compromise the system. The mechanic advised the consumer to visit the dealer. The dealer did confirm the diagnosis was correct. However, the consumer was informed the warranty only applied to a few states and the consumers stated was not included. The consumer paid $2300 for the repair.

Tundra 4WD 8-cyl

  • 57,894 miles
I started my truck up yesterday just randomly to go to the store. As soon as I started it a bunch of warning lights went off. The check engine light was on, the 4WD lo light was blinking, the vsc off light was blinking, and the traction control light was on. I then turned the vehicle off and let it sit for a few minutes. I turned the truck back on and the same warning lights were still on. I then pulled out of my driveway to go to a friends house who has a little computer that tells you what errors are going off when your check engine light is on like an autobody. As I pulled onto the main road and pressed on the accelerator the truck would barely go. The engine sounded like it usually does but the truck would hardly accelerate. When I finally got to my friends house he plugged the computer in and it gave me an error code of P2440. Once I looked more into it I found that it was the air induction pump that was malfunctioning. Further research online I found thousands of people have had the same problem with Tundra's with mileage between 40K and 60K. My biggest concern is why the vehicle is not accelerating like it supposed to. Many other people have the same concern. That is a huge safety hazard to me. What would happen if that would just all of a sudden shut my engine down to the slow crawl that it is doing if I am on a turnpike in heavy traffic. I would believe that there would definitely be an accident which I am sure it has happened before. I am just wondering if there is anything that can be done or maybe something that has already been done. Like a recall that I am not aware of.
