Question about Toyota Tundra

Toyota Cast Part 45859-07010 2005 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.

Hello.

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.

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.

I'm afraid that the warranties provided by Toyota in the U.S. for the 36 month period are limited only to the U.S. according to their website and that the warranty honored depends on the local Toyota dealer.

So, if the local Qatar dealer is saying this, then it probably is something that falls under local policy.

Describe Sir I already bought a new TOYOTA TUNDRA from united state of America from camelback Toyota scion 1333 east camelback *phoenix, AZ 85014 (www.camelbacktoyota.com) and shipped it to STATE OF QATAR....


I haven't any reason to disbelieve the Qatar agent when he or she says that that any car purchased outside of the Qatar will not be under warranty. GMC is not the same as Toyota, I guess.

The Toyota Tundra is an excellent vehicle, and I'm sure that if you do the regular service on it then it will last a long time. However, there's the issue of whether it's under warranty in case anything goes wrong with it.

I guess it's one of those things that one might encounter in international business with warranties and such.

I never thought about that issue as being an issue, but apparently that's what they told you.

COVERAGES Every Toyota Car, Truck and SUV is built to exceptional standards. And that's not idle boasting. We back it up with these Limited Warranty Coverages: Basic 36 months/36,000 miles (whichever comes first) (all components other than normal wear and maintenance items). Powertrain 60 months/60,000 miles (whichever comes first) (engine, transmission/transaxle, front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, seatbelts and airbags). Rust-Through 60 months/unlimited miles (corrosion perforation of sheet metal). Emissions Coverages vary under Federal and California regulations. Refer to applicable Owner's Warranty Information booklet for details. Accessories For accessories purchased at time of the new vehicle purchase, the Toyota Accessory Warranty coverage is in effect for 36 months or 36,000 miles (whichever comes first) from the vehicle's in-service date, which is the same coverage as the Basic coverage of the Toyota New Vehicle Limited Warranty.

For dealer-installed accessories purchased after the new vehicle purchase, the coverage is 12 months or 12,000 miles (whichever comes first) from the date the accessory was installed on the vehicle, or the remainder of the above 36 months or 36,000 miles Basic coverage from the vehicle's in-service date, whichever provides greater coverage, with the exception of car covers. Car covers are warranted for 12 months from the date of purchase and do not assume any coverage under the Toyota New Vehicle Limited Warranty.

For customer (non-dealer)-installed accessories purchased after the new vehicle purchase, the coverage is 12 months or 12,000 miles (whichever comes first), from the purchase date of the accessory.

You may be eligible for transportation assistance if it's necessary that your vehicle be kept overnight for repairs covered under warranty. Please see your authorized Toyota dealership for further details. Hybrid-Related Component Coverage Hybrid-related components for hybrid vehicles are covered for 8 years/100,000 miles. The HV battery may have longer coverage under emissions warranty. Refer to applicable Owner's Warranty Information booklet for details. For complete details about Toyota's warranties, please refer to the applicable Owner's Warranty Information booklet or see your Toyota dealer. ---
The above warranties are just 'limited' warranties which may not be honored internationally, especially when the dealer in Qatar tells you that they will not honor it.

The end of the above tells you to see your Toyota dealer and that's what you did. Maybe you could argue your case with a district or regional manager, but I think that it probably will be difficult to find free service in your country.

That means that you will have to pay for any service that your vehicle requires, rather than getting it free or covered under the 'limited' warranty.

I wish you luck, however, in obtaining warranty service for your Toyota vehicle, over there.
