    It's not that it causes failure, it causes the already bad clutches to slip with the new fluid. It washes out all the old friction material in the old fluid thats keeping the bad clutches working.

    Hi fellas I’m thinking of picking up a 2002 Tundra AC 4x4, it has 250k but person just got it a couple months ago and isn’t aware of the timing belt being done.
    I checked the Carfax app and there’s no record of it ever being done by a shop.
    If the person had the truck for several years I would go for it but I’m Hessitant with those miles and seller just picking up and selling truck right away.
    I have almost 200k on my LX470, and 201k on my ES350.
    I’m not afraid of them but don’t want to pick up the truck and have to dump in steering rack which is common, timing belt, water pump.
    What do you guys think? It’s very clean outside, decent inside.

    Is steering rack that common? Mine's on 250k miles. Could be what I hear whining occasionally, but works great and doesn't leak. If you need a truck and that one is less than $3500 in great shape I would consider it. Obviously inspect the frame. The timing belt is a catastrophic failure item. I would pull the cover on one of the cam sprockets and at least inspect it. If it looks good, replace at your convenience. Pretty sure mine went 212k miles before it was replaced by the second owner, me.

    I’ve had my 2002 since brand new and the timing belt was done at 110k miles in 2014. She is sitting at 169k miles now. Pretty sure my local garage didn’t register the belt redo at CarFax (dealer scam site). If someone questioned me and said, ‘Well the TB is not on registered on CarFaux’ then I’d laugh right in their face.

    Go and look and buy it if it looks good. Otherwise move on and find another.

    Nothing beats eyes/hands on.

    Long story and nothing personal against you. I wear a tin foil hat to hold things down at night. Tomorrow morning after my second cup of Dark Italian Roast all things will become parallel.

    I drive my truck about 60 miles a day. It is a 2002 4.7 Limited Access Cab with 273,000 on the clock. New Toyota rebuilt transmission at 250,000 miles. Excellent condition and well worth the $31,500 sticker price when I bought it new in Oct, 2001. Before the Tundra, I had a 1983 Ford E150 Club Wagon with a 300 CID inline 6 and a 4 speed manual transmission. It went 331.000 miles and my goal is to st least beat that with this Tundra. I have had my non-Toyota shop replace all 8 coil units when 2 units failed at about 240,000 miles. I have replaced the timing belt 3 times.

    I replaced the front section of the 2 piece drive shaft at 190,000 along with 3 universal joints and the center support. I had vibration in the drive line between 35 and 70 mph. The Toyota tech wanted to replace the rear end at an estimated cost of $6000. My independent shop rebuilt the drive line for under $800.

    How many 400k trucks do we have on here? Those trucks would definitely be legendary.

    I would be more interested in seeing a chart of mileage vs 1st, 2nd and 3rd+ owners.

    Interesteing. I've heard of new fluid causing a trans failure, but I've never considered this as the mechanism. Seems reasonable.
