I Am The Owner Of A 1996 toyota 4runner. The 5vz-fe Bi-metal engine Suffered A Catastrophic Failure. According To The The Authorized Dealer (toyota 101 Of Redwood City), The engine Overheated Which Subsequently Led To The Aluminum Heads To Crack Around The Vales. I Am Aware That toyota Had A National Recall On The Head Gaskets For The 5vz-fe V6 engines For Most Model Trucks (4runner & Tacoma) Manufactured In The 1990’s.the Recall Was Under The Guise Of A Special Service Campaign Ssc-x01. I Believe That The Defective Head Gaskets Are The Core Reason For The Catastrophic Failure Of My 4runner’s engine. I Contacted toyota Motor Sales Corp. In San Ramon, Ca & Torrance, Ca On Numerous Occasions Complaining Of The engine Failure. I Asked For Assistance & Good Will Warranty, But Received Unsatisfactory Service. I Feel That toyota Has No Interest In Taking Responsibilty For Their Defective Parts. Leaving Consumers To Pay For The Costly Repairs. I Am Seeking The Fair And Reasonable Repair Of My engine In A Timely Manner.
