    Looks interesting, wonder what the warranty implications would be with that in place. I would think it has little or no affect on oil pressure and flow. might have to order one of those. :)

    I designed https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4770907 for my Fumoto drain valve. Fumoto makes the issue even worse as the drain hole diameter is smaller. If you have a 3D printer, give it a try.

    I think it'll have negative warranty implications in that I don't expect to be able to make a warranty claim if I have an oil-related issue. There's no oil pressure gauge on the Highlander so I can't see what effect it had. Since the Tundra has a pressure gauge, I plan to see if it changes where my needle sits.

    Doubt you'll see any dif. As far as warranty, just take it off and replace the OEM before towing it to the dealer. ;)

    For me, it was actually something that I was not expecting, the windows. My 16 year old GX470 had power automatic up/down feature on both front windows. But I'm sure there's some way to add this feature. I do have the SR5.

    When I'm letting the cruise control hold the speed and when we come to a downhill section and the damn thing hits the BRAKES. If I WANTED the truck to slow down while coasting downhill, I'd've hit the brakes myself, thank you.

    Interesting. I understand the motor/transmission would have a "braking" affect downhill, but I never heard the brakes would actually be applied...at least not until now. Are you sure?

    It's cruise control. Designed to keep the truck at a constant speed. Just like when the adaptive cruise control will adjust your speed if a vehicle in front of you is moving at a slower rate.

    ENTUNE mystery solved. So Entune has been deprecated into the Toyota app. The little yellow GPS app is also NOT compatible with my year of truck...

    So now, other than the damned phone calls not piping through the radio, (it did not on an incoming but did on an outgoing) one more mystery to solve is why the PCS won't work even after I turn it on in the little screen behind the steering wheel. It says in the manual to check for camera obstruction. I drove from Boston to NH in a monsoon today, wondering if that has anything to do with it...

    I am now thinking that since the truck was on the lot for 3 weeks, I'll bet someone absconded with it.

    I turn it off on the back roads but the highway is good because where there is construction and rain, I sometimes can't SEE the lines. (Sucks getting old)

    Same here! I have a 2019 with the exact same issue that started in December 2020. Reported it to my dealership and they were not interested in helping me. Even rode with the tech advisor and manager, then sent them a detailed log of when it does it but to them it's not a problem. Good thing there's a warranty IF this gets worse. I was surprised and disappointed when this problem started on the most reliable truck out there. Oh well.

    Attached his directions, easy peasey. @Roman will give you all the part numbers to order the right things. Hopefully their store gets back up and running soon; I ended up getting mine on megazip after not hearing back; $165 to my door if I remember correctly. All credit goes to @Roman - you’ll see he’s legendary on here if you haven’t run into him yet.

    Water or anything on the windshield in front of the camera can cause the PCS to not work. I’ve had that happen several times.

    The 2020 has a Ranch Hand front brushguard/bumper
    Didn't have time to read all 14 pages but wondered if anyone mentioned, and had a solution for the downgrade to a single driver's visor (my '03 has two but the new truck only has one). Reaallly need a second visor, I go blind/get baked by side or front sun where I drive apparently...lots of turns S then SW in the summer I guess.
    Need a way to add a second visor (that doesn't look cheaply done).

    Really curious about the problem You and TundraTRD11 seem to be having regarding the erratic shifting and trans slippage, can you elaborate more on this problem, and what the dealer told you?

    ABS check thunk, squeaky brakes when reversing, engine whistle when accelerating, creaking front end when turning the steering wheel. All with less than 3k miles on it. So frustrated.

    Obviously you bought the wrong truck. Trade it for something else. Life’s too short to drive a vehicle that frustrates you.

    Yes. I know the difference between engine braking and actual brakes; I live 6 miles from a mountain pass and refuse to smoke my brakes by riding them, so I downshift whenever I'm going over the Appalachian Gap.

    The ABS self check isn't an issue. No need to get frustrated over it.

    Very sorry. I wasn't trying to insult your intelligence. Just my confusion when reading the post.

    All the Best.
