My 4×4 toyota tundra Crewmax With The 5.7l Engine Was Diagnosed With A Cam Tower Leak With Only 15,000 Miles On It. Fortunately The Vehicle Was Still Under The Factory Power Train Warranty. toyota Made The Repair And Provided A Rental Car For Me. I Have Heard This Is A Common Problem With The 2012-2013 5.7l Engine And I Want This Issue To Be More Public. I Worry Owners Of This Vehicle Will Be Stuck With The $2,300-$3,000 Bill To Fix Their Own Vehicle If Their Vehicle’s Power Train Warranty Has Expired. I Also Worry The Engines Could Leak Oil Onto The Exhaust Manifold And Catch Fire.

I Bought A Certified Used 2012 Platinum tundra With 32k Miles And 2 Years Later With Regular Maintenance And A Cam Seal Leak Fixed By The Dealer, I Have Found A Very Hard Rod Knock From The Engine. I Took My Truck Back To The Dealership To Have The Oil And Filter Changed With 114.8k Miles On It At This Time And Was Told I Will Need To Replace The Engine. I Believe Something Isn’t Smelling Right. Does Anyone Know Any Issues With The Connection Of The Cam Seal Leak And The Rod Ready To Blow. The Dealership Said It Would Be Approx. $14k To Replace The Engine With 40k Miles On It.. Really ? Again, I’m Smelling “not My Problem” From The People Involved. Who Can I Reach Out To Assist Me In Researching The Cause Of Possible Mis Repair Maintenance ? I Appreciate Anyone’s Help. Best Regards,
