    Is this a Toyota dealer or an attorney number for class action?

    I pick it up tomorrow... We'll see how it goes and what kind of answers I get. They change employees so often that it has to be in writing or it is useless.

    Well same bull$hit song and dance... No TSB, so.... No repair. It is documented in the service records and if it evolves from a "seep" to a "leak" by the gods of Toyota then it will get taken care of.

    Wow....went through 47 pages until I needed a break.
    While I agree that a leak on such an old mass produced engine has not been addressed by Toyota yet, is a definite WTF? I think that dealers should be made aware by the manufacturer and if a Tundra comes in with the issue or gets diagnosed with it, they should automatically honor the powertrain warranty (if the truck is still covered by it), no fuss, no questions.

    I will be checking mine today. I'm at 58k miles so getting close to loosing warranty coverage.

    Got mine back today little disappointed they ended up doing only the leaking side and fixing another motor issue after I said I wanted both sides done. Not sure how to take it. They had it for 2 weeks but I did call 2 hours before my warranty expired and they took care of me. But they told me the passenger side is normally the only side that leaks and the driver looked great ? Not sure if this is a load of crap but did cover it another year. Any thoughts ?

    Mine was the passenger side as well, they only repaired that side and I put another 25k on the truck after the repair without a leak again. I even offered to pay my dealer to have the driver side resealed while they were doing the passenger side and they wouldn't do it. As for only the passenger side leaking I would take that with a grain of salt as we have seen both sides fail.

    I can guarantee you I’d have made it appear the other side was leaking too before taking it in. It’ll just start leaking on the other side after your warranty is up, sticking you with repair costs.

    way of the world unfortunately.

    Agreed, common issue and just a matter of time. Had the leak and fixed at 21k, drove the truck to 48k and have since sold it.

    Yep not sure what else you can do, there argument to me was if they take it apart the non leaking side then it might start leaking. Who knows, I still say this is a design flaw and thus why Toyota has yet to solve the issue.

    Well and like they told me the passenger side is good for a year so that means I’m sure they don’t wanna cover more then they have to

    Dealer confirmed the leak on my truck yesterday. Goes in Monday for the repair. They said they only repair the leaking side (passenger), but may do the other side if things look different when they start pulling things apart. 2016 with 57k miles.

    Just picked up my truck from the dealer. I thought I had a leak on the passenger side only, but evidently both sides were leaking. Glad to have both sides done. I also paid to have the water pump and belt replaced while there were in there.

    yes. just to flush residues from the FIPG install. I did 200 miles, 800 miles and 3,000 miles. Now back to regular schedule. Oil is "cheap".

    I found old gasket debris and even a few wire wheel bristles in mine for a few oil changes after. I took pictures of what the filter caught each time to document. I think its BS Toyota doesn't include an oil change with this procedure. I did my next few changes at shorter intervals after the repair.

    It's too bad they don't keep that crap from ending up in the crankcase. What you are finding getting caught in the filter was pumped there by the oil pump. Not healthy for the pump to deal with that stuff.
