We need to replace our 2002 Avalanche, 228,000 K, OD. It's been a great truck. We are looking at the 09 Avalanche again, as well as comparing to the Tundra. What is your recommendation as to what is the best, long term, investment? Second comment is: We have enjoyed the Avalanche because of the locking panel sections and the midgate is very useful. If the Toyota had those features, we would buy the Tundra. Price does come into play...

Re: New Truck Purchase: Avalanche or Tundra
If you liked the Options on the Old Truck, I would go with the 09. The Tundra is a GREAT Truck But, Will not have the Options that you Like on the Chevy. In Pro's and Con's---- The Tundra does have Better Service and a Better Warranty along with a LOT of Options FREE that you will pay Extra for on the Chevy. I have ALWAYS been Hard Core Chevy-- But, I Purchased a 2007 Scion Xa for my Wife (Toyota Built) and we have had NO Problems and there are NO Recalls and NO Customer Complaints! Just hope that the same goes for the Tundra. Chevy has had a Lot of issues and Recalls on a Lot of their Products But, I still love them! Bottom line is, Purchase what you like But, Do the Research Online first! Just type in Recalls for ............. and Search it.

Pull the intake tube off the front of the engine at the throttle body and clean the gunk out of the throttle body with some carb cleaner and a toothbrush. Be careful where tou spray the cleaner. And make sure you open the butterfly to clean behind it. It should be the first thing to try, since it's the cheapest and easiest thing that I can think of. It worked for me. I had 203,000 on my 2000 Tundra SR5 (V8 - 4WD)
You don't need the OEM part, Go to ebay and find one, or any parts store. I bought one for my truck, worked great. It has all the little electronic gizmos on it you need to blink with. Snaps right in the sockets, and no wire cutting. Check it out.
with an alignnment machine. If its a 4x4 and a strait axle then its not adjustable like all strait axle 4x4's Only the toe can be adjusted. Alot of trucks that are not strait axle come factory with the option to adjust those two but like my Expedition you need to purchase a part that doesnt come with the truck which usually runs about 75 bucks.

this might seem like alot to do but with some understanding your husband can do it , or you :) ok here we go ; first go to autozone and get the hanes manual for that truck $25. . read up on the truck / fuel delivary /engine conponants ;ect just to understand how your truck works then with a little knowledge turn to the back of the book and look up year of truck engine compartment scematics look for the efi sensor location in the book then try to find it in the truck ( usually bye the carb/efi body MAYBE? ) ok this next is too trace the colorcoded wire that is connected to the sencor back to the truck firewall or fuse box . you have too to do whatever it takes to follow that wire .be very careful if useing exacto knife you are looking for the inline fuse [should be black in color round like a cylinder about 1inch long the scematics should show this but u never know there is no quick fix for this unless you want to pay anyway some of these fuses u can get from the dealer just look around and compare prices . splice it in and see if it starts or runs if it runs great if not replace the comp try a used comp or reman with a little knowhow you can do this and also this is the cheapest way
