I Was On The Highway When The Engine Stalled, And I Barely Managed To Get My Truck To The toyota Of Dallas Dealership, Where I Had Bought My Vehicle. They Found That Between The Valve Block And Valve There Was A Ring That Had Come Loose That Caused The Engine To Stall. When The Car Began To Stall I Could Not Control The Steering And The Brake Stopped Functioning Properly. I Am A Safe Driver And Had Maintained A Safe Distance Between My Car And Those In Front Of Me At All Times, But The Situation I Was In Was Very Hazardous Because When The Engine Began To Stall It Made It Very Hard For Me To Manage My Vehicle. Because I Felt That There Was No Particular Reason For The Valves To Be Damaged, I Did Some Research On The Engine Myself And Found That The toyota V8 4.6 Liter Engine Is Also In The Lexus Ls460 And Rx460. The Engine Has Already Been Recalled By Lexus Because Of Issues With Loose Springs, So I Think The Sudden Damage To My Engine May Have Been Caused By The Same Reason. Is There A Possibility That The Engine Is Defective? *tr

I Bought My 2010 toyota tundra Brand New In Feb. 2010, During A Routine Oil Change At toyota Dealer Recently, Engine Oil Leaking Was Noticed By The Technician. The Repair Was Done To Reseal Both Cam Box Housings And Replaced Seals And Gaskets That Are Related. It Costed Over $1800. Unfortunately, The Vehicle Just Passed The Powertrain Warranty, Since It Has Been 5 Year And 11 Months, But The Mileage Is At 38,000, Related Low. I Have Contaced toyota Us Headquarter, Told Them The Oil Leaking Most Likely Started Before 5 Years Mark, But It Was Just Discovered Now. They Refused To Reimburse The Repair Cost. The Dealer Service Technician Told Me That He Has Seen Many tundra Had This Oil Leak Issue, And Most Of Them Were Within Warranty, So There Is No Recall For This Issue So Far, I Also Did Research On Internet, Found Other People Had This Oil Leak Issue For Their 2010 tundra And 2011 tundra. I Would Like Nhtsa To Investigate This Wide Spread Issue And Hopefully Let toyota Do A Recall For This Defect!

Mileage was 38000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):5TFEM5F16AX. TOYOTA TUNDRA 2010 problem was reported in CEDAR PARK, TX. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control.

My tundra Has 48048 Miles On It. I Took My tundra In For An Oil Change And Was Told There Was A Oil Leak In The Cam Tower. The Cost To Fix It Was $2850. It Was No Longer Under Warranty. I Did A Little Searching And Found That This Is A Problem That Has Occurred Frequently In This Engine. I Contacted toyota And Was Told, After They Consulted With The Dealer, That The Problem Wasn’t A Defect, But Caused By Engine Wear And Altitude. They Offered To Pay For Parts, Which Were $420. If It Is Really Engine Wear, I Expect This To Happen Again. In Talking To The Dealer, I Was Told This Is A One Time Fix, And It Should Not Happen Again. Something Isn’t Right Here. Either It Is A Defect In The Engine And This Repair Will Fix It. Or It Is Normal Wear And This Will Keep Happening. I Feel This Is A Problem That toyota Should Fix, Since It Seems To Be Happening Frequently. Many People Reported It Happening While It Was Under Warranty. Mine Just Happened To Have Occurred After The Warranty Expired. Either Way, It Is Not Acceptable To Have This Happening In This Engine With Low Mileage. Apparently The Oil Leaks Down From The Engine Onto The Exhaust Part Of The Vehicle And Can Cause Fires. It Also Can Leak Out And Cause Engine Damage If The Oil Gets Too Low. I Hope You Can Help Me.

Mileage was 48048 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):5TFUW5F16AX. TOYOTA TUNDRA 2010 problem was reported in LARAMIE, WY. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control.
