Question about Toyota Tundra
I have a warranty repair that's gone south. I have an invoice in front of me stating that part number 45859-07010 was replaced, but when I opened up the steering column cover, I found this part to have been repaired with JB Weld Expoxy, or the like. Toyota is giving me the run around and saying there is no "proof" they did the shoty repair, which caused the same failure to occur again. I need to prove to them that the above mentioned part is in fact the original part that was on the vehicle when it rolled off the assembly line. There is an etched number visible (3T39244) and if I were to remove the part, I know there is another number in the casting which has something to do with the origin of the cast part. Can anyone help?

When the car is completely cool,check the electric fan(s) for smooth rotation.
Clean/check/change the thermo sensor,contact and wire.
Excavate air pocket in coolant system / check for head gasket leak
This test will kill two birds with one stone.
MAKE SURE THE COOLANT SYSTEM and ENGINE IS COLD!
RAN THIS TEST IN A WELL VENTILATED AREA ONLY!
You will spill some coolant during this air pocket purge test.......BE KIND TO THE ENVIRONMENT and ANIMAL please clean up after the test!
Put the front end on a pair of ramp or park your car on a VERY STEEP HILL (radiator facing top of the hill) .
Top of the coolant reserve tank
Let it ran for 10-15 minutes.
Monitor for air pockets escaping from coolant reserve tank.
Small amount of bubbles is OK at 1-5 minute mark
After the thermostat open up (after 195 F warm up) at
5-12 minute mark or after high idle you should see less bubbles.
If you do not see any in rush of bubbles then your thermostat may be partially stuck or rusted badly inside the thermostat hosing.
Give the thermostat host few gentle taps.
If you see larger bubbles surfacing after 15 minutes then should do a hydrocarbon (HC) dye test to test for potential head gasket leak.
Let engine cold down and top off coolant reserve tank.
Start monitor for coolant lost
A coolant flush is require every 2 years or 24,000 miles.
I recommend the thermostat that has a relief pop-let to reduce the change of burst radiator and coolant hoses.
Make sure you get a new thermostat gasket,black RTV and fresh coolant for the job.

We would suggest that you look at the wiring connector under the bed, that feeds the taillamps.
You will probably find a coroded wire in the connector. If the 3rd brake lamp works, all of the fuses and switches are good.

Testimonial: "All connectors were fine. It ended up being that both brake light blubs blew at the same time. Thanks"
SOURCE: I have a 2006 Toyota
My 2004 v6 2wd highlander has the same battery, and I am just now replacing it. What is that 7 years? I found via google that it has 550 CCA. I think it would have lasted longer if not for kids leaving lights on every few weeks and an unusually cold winter for this far south.
