    Hello, new to Tundras and the forum

    Have a slight problem puzzling me. Truck has a miss when cold. If I let it warm up its fine, even idles great cold but underload (climbing) i get a missfire to the point it bucks. No light and checked, also no codes.
    I suspected an O2 sensor, looked to price them and am given choices of O2's and AF (air/fuel)
    My questions, the truck has O2s or AFs?
    and any ideas on what i could check other than O2s? or think i am on the right track?
    Thank you in advance for any and all help, ... Joe

    As far as I know and remember bad O2’s were never a problem for me like you are having when they went bad. My mechanic said don’t worry to fix right away unless you really want to fix it right away. My check engine light would come on, but I would reset it constantly knowing it was o2.

    Another problem I had was similiar to what you describe was fixed by buying a brand new gas cap! Got that fuel reading you described as AF. Bought a new gas cap and that fixed it. Something about the seal. New cap is about $15?
