The trans should be serviced if it is an automatic (fluid and filter), the fuel filter should be changed ( a restricted filter can ruin the fuel pump in the tank), the air filter should be changed, make sure the chassis lubed if it has lube zerks. Clean or replace the PCV valve.

    All belts and cooling system hoses should be replaced and the old coolant flushed out and replaced.

Time string? Do you mean the timing belt? 100-140 miles is a good rule of thumb. Definitely have a pro do it though, things can get tricky on a truck that new.

I replaced the plugs and air filter on my 2000 tacoma 2.7 liter and i am getting terrible gas mileage and a funny emissions smell


smells to a wrong spark plug type, double check your numbers, if doubt call your locall toyota dealer parts department. Toyota vehicles are very sentimental about originall equipment plugs, dont like aftermarket plugs, also check your air filter housing and make shure all hoses are atached.
Good luck

My toyota tacoma is missing when taking off and


It's probably not the fuel filter. I would suggest replacement sparkplugs, and wires, since you did not nmention these items. Also, use plugs from a Toyota parts dept. If you use anything else, it won't run properly.

Engine light is on--2000 V6 tacoma prerunner. read out says the problem is a cam positon sensor. How difficult is this to replace your self? Thank


Usually this is a bit of dirt in the engine plugging the oil port that supplies pressure to the variable valve timing control cam. Change your engine oil every 3000 miles and maybe switch brands. I had this problem on my Matrix until I switched to Castrol GTX 5W30 that cleaned the oil port right out.

No power,


My truck did the same thing. I changed the plugs with the ones the parts store recommended and it still acted gutless. Then I took it to the toyota dealership and they told me the plugs were not the right ones. So make sure you have the right plugs with a couple different parts store. i guess there sensitive and not just any plugs will work. Do it yourself though cause the dealership will rape you. Stevenson toyota in Golden colorado sucks!
