Question about 2007 Toyota Tacoma Double
I hooked up my Tacoma to a diagnostic machine and it came up with the following numbers 171, 174, 420, 430, 441 & 445. The truck tends to stall after getting warmed and driving for a while. Mostly when trying to go uphill it's been ongoing problem that i just can't seem to get a handle on.
171 & 174--O2 Too lean each bank
420 & 430-common Converter Codes usually for
failed converter,but your vehicle is sort of new
445-Evap Purge Valve Circuit Shorted
Sorry about the short & poorly displayed codes
I would be here all day telling you things as other experts do,
just to make it look nice
I suggest you google the codes & study them
You 2 upsteam O2 Sensors may have slowed down & set
the faults as they should be over 100,000 miles
The rear monitors are a bit of a mistery as the converter
should not be bad just yet or the 2 rear O2 sensors
The evap code & purge valve you have to diagnose for sure
Working in you driveway with only a code reader,no experience
no factory manuals & charts to follow or test equipment,you
I would only do the 2 front sensors based on mileage,check for
any vacuum leaks & the purge valve may be the entire problem
but only when that monitor runs
You really need professional scan software so you can take it for

pull the E.F.I. fuse located under the hood on the drivers side, if there is more than 1 efi fuse pull them both along with the E.T.C.S. fuse (if there is one) for 1 minute or so. That should do it

SOURCE: 05 tacoma tailgate latch stuck
I had the same problem. I figure that dirt/rust may have accumulated inside the latching mechanism. I was able to fix it using the following steps.
1 - Remove the plastic cap that covers the top of the gate.
2 - Remove as many of the remaining torx bolts from the inside cover (you will need to do this to get inside the gate).
3 - Next, try and get some WD40 on/in the latch mechanism.
4 - Using a large screwdriver, you will need to pry the lever attached to the cable in order to release the latch.
Not a pretty process but it seemed to work. I give the latches a good lubrication frequently now, until I get around to replacing them.

I would check the O2 sensor, and if it checks bad, replace it, and clear the trouble codes. If the light comes back on, you may need to check further. .
