Wow, there I thought Toyota's only needed filters and fluid changes. Media must be full of shit.

I thought the Japs didn't want anybody rummaging around in their engines? I remember when the V-8 truck engines were breaking camshafts. Order of the day was to yank the engine, crate it up, and ship it to Japan. If the Japanese engineers decided the engine failure was a mechanical fault, instead of neglect or abuse, they would send you a new one....about two months later. What the customer did while his engine was out was his problem, according to the Japanese.

I certainly don't like rummaging around the insides of Jap engines. The outsides are bad enough. Taking the motor mount bolts out, jacking up on an oil pan, to get an alternator to clear on a Honda is NOT how I like to spend my weekends.

 

Or dealing with balance shafts that are not properly marked while doing a timing belt and water pump replacement. Get one of those out of time, and they shake like a Ford Escort at idle. Basically, a paint mixer on tires.

Since the Tacoma doesn't have the 4.7 I wonder what the time is also? You mean 4.0 or a Tundra?
