2014 should be under warranty isn't it? Have the dealer fix it at no cost to you.
However, to answer your question over whether or not timing is important, it is.

  • Ignition timing being off will cause your engine to be inefficient, making less power (firing too early or firing too late) and will eventually result in things like fouling, burned valves, etc.
  • Valve timing being off can be more of a pain, in that it could result in the TDC timing going bad (this happened to my '98 contour-the pistons punched the valves and bent them) My example car used a timing belt, where the tensioner spring broke, causing the cams to jump time, leaving them open and bam. Dead engine. Your truck has a chain, making my example unlikely, BUT you do have something called variable valve timing which if that system is going bad, you could end up causing similar damage.
Bottom line really, is without the codes that they found, reading the waveforms, and running compression/sniffer tests (to check VVT system) further digging will require more info. If the truck is under warranty, take it in.

How do I get the gages on my 2014 Toyota Tundra to illuminate during the day.


Many new cars have a sensor on the dash, found under a hole in the top of the dash, that tells a computer when to turn on the dash lights and headlights. If you cover this hole, the lights should turn on.

Any time the headlights are on, the dash lights should illuminate as well.

2008 Toyota Tundra engine light on, vsc off, 4lo, slip indicator lights came on - what is the problem?


I currently have the same issue on my 2008 Tundra. I have noticed that one of the 12v acces plugs don't work. The problem is intermittent and started when the air was damp or after it rained. Now the same lights are on, the 12v doesn't work and the remote door locks don't work. Toyota want to run a diagnostic check at $125 an hour. Did you solve your problem?
