Thanks for the kind words guys. The fix is on its way to the dealership as we speak. It will be a simple fix, takes about 30 minutes to do. They will have plenty at every dealership. Any questions, just give our dealership a call and ask for the Service Dept. We will get everyone taken care of and get back to be #1 again soon.

have you guys started taking appts yet?
I'm not worried about driving my truck the way it is. I realize that chances of it happening to me are like winning the lottery. But at the same time its gonna get done sooner or later.
Also, a buddy of mine really likes the black tacoma you guys have in the Used Cars section. It looks leveled/lifted w/ aftermarket tires/wheels. Is it possible you know the specs of that truck?

I'm afraid to call my service advisor b/c of this whole recall thing. I just want to get new tires on the Highlander before the warranty expires but don't feel like being stuck in the midst of the crisis.

Has anyone heard of the wrong spring in the VVT-i gear assembly? This is from another thread:

"We recently received a copy of a Toyota TSB (technical service bulletin) regarding the mysterious 2010 Tundra check engine light issue we documented a few months ago. What follows is an explanation of the exact problem, how it’s fixed, and what Tundra owners can expect. We’ve also included a VIN list that you can use to see if your Tundra is effected by this TSB.
The Issue:
Beginning a few months ago, many 2010 Tundra owners complained about check engine lights coming on in their brand-new trucks (setting code P0012 or P0022). Based on notes from owners and brief conversations with dealership personnel, we wrongly concluded this issue was caused by oil debris clogging cam position sensors. However, the problem is that Toyota used the wrong spring in the VVT-i gear assembly in some 2010 Tundras (both 4.6L and 5.7L). Because the spring in some Tundras is too stiff, the VVT-i system will “stick” in the wrong mode, setting a check engine light.

When this problem was first discovered on some trucks, Toyota advised dealers that it was an oil contamination issue and that an oil change would fix the problem. However, this is not the case. While changing the oil temporarily solved the issue, at some point these Tundras will need a new VVT-i gear assembly.


Some new 2010 Tundras with check-engine lights and codes P0012 or P0022 most likely need a new VVT-i gear.
The Fix:
Tundra’s produced before a certain date need a new VVT-i gear assembly with the correct spring so that the VVT-i system will function correctly. Replacing the assembly is a repair of low difficulty but does require a moderate amount of time. The timing cover, valve covers, and intake manifold must be removed in order to access the cam gears. According to a Toyota technician we spoke with, this is a labor-intensive yet relatively simple task.

Owners should expect to be without their truck for a couple of days, and should be provided a rental vehicle at no charge while the repair is made. This isn’t an item that requires immediate attention either, so feel free to schedule it around your life (this is not an urgent matter).

Effected Trucks
First, this TSB effects 2010 Tundra and Sequoia models ONLY. In order to determine if your truck is effected, you need the last 8 digits of your VIN number. If the last 8 digits of your VIN number are LOWER than the numbers for your vehicle configuration as listed below, you are advised to schedule an appointment.

4.6L 2010 Tundras

•2wd 4.6L Regular Cab Tundras with the last 8 lower than AX001114
•2wd 4.6L DoubleCab and CrewMax Tundras with the last 8 lower than AX011968
•2wd 4.6L DoubleCab Long Bed Tundras with the last 8 lower than AX001123
•4wd 4.6L Regular Cab Tundras with the last 8 lower than AX001239
•4wd 4.6L DoubleCab and CrewMax Tundras with the last 8 lower than AX008508
•4wd 4.6L DoubleCab Long Bed Tundras with the last 8 lower than AX001181
5.7L 2010 Tundras (non flex-fuel)

•2wd 5.7L Regular Cab Tundras with the last 8 lower than AX003300
•2wd 5.7L DoubleCab and CrewMax Tundras with the last 8 lower than AX087077
•2wd 5.7L DoubleCab Long Bed Tundras with the last 8 lower than AX006744
•4wd 5.7L Regular Cab Tundras with the last 8 lower than AX004038
•4wd 5.7L DoubleCab and CrewMax Tundras with the last 8 lower than AX125564
•4wd 5.7L DoubleCab Long Bed Tundras with the last 8 lower than AX010329
5.7L 2010 Tundras (flex-fuel only)

•4wd 5.7L Regular Cab Tundras with the last 8 lower than AX004040
•4wd 5.7L DoubleCab and CrewMax Tundras with the last 8 lower than AX125616
•4wd 5.7L DoubleCab Long Bed Tundras with the last 8 lower than AX010329
This list is sort of confusing, so be sure to double check your VIN. Also be sure to note the cab type and 2wd/4wd.

This isn’t a problem that requires an immediate fix. Feel free to schedule this repair along with your next service.

Technical Explanation of the Problem
All new Toyota Tundras feature VVT-i – variable intake valve timing. VVT-i is one of the marvels of modern engine design, and systems of this type have been successfully used by every auto manufacturer to extract maximum power and efficiency out of their engines for decades.

The Tundra’s VVT-i system relies upon a cam shift to change valve timing. By shifting the cam back and forth, valve timing can be advanced or retarded in order to maximize performance and efficiency. The cam shift mechanism is activated by a combination of oil pressure, electronic valves, and gear assemblies that are set on springs. Here’s a step-by-step explanation of VVT-i in action:

1. As RPMs increase, oil pressure raises.
2. If the engine computer determines that a timing shift is beneficial, it will open the oil control valves and allow oil to apply pressure to the VVT-i gear assembly.
3. The oil pressure on the gears will cause the cam to shift forwards or backwards, moving from one mode to another."

As I was out driving, my light came on. I am in the range of VINs in the article. I'm taking it in tomorrow to see what the f*ck is up.

thats the thing though, toyota thought that was the fix because the light would go away after an oil change. They figured problem was fixed. Read "The issue" on the post. Its a temporary fix. Does your truck come under this recall? Check it against your VIN.
Mine does, and its time for an oil change for me now. But like it says, the oil change will only temporarily fix the problem, i.e. turn the light off.

well i'd ask one question. should a check engine (or maint. light) come on because of an oil change? Especially if it isn't designed to?

that just happened to me and that is not ok. i'll update you guys tomorrow after i take it in.

Yes, seen this TSB also and the oil change does not take care of it permanently. I'd take it in and have them do it at the same time as the pedal, just to be on the safe side.

Latest news - Transportation Secretary is asking all owners of the recalled Toyotas not to drive them.

My response: And what are they supposed to drive to get to/fro until able to take in the vehicle? I do not see this as an issue where it needs to be taken to that level. And most people don't have extra income to get a rental until this is resolved.

Way too much hype and a lot of people are making it worse by maliciously blaming recent "accidents" on the pedal issue.

One man can't fix a boat load of problems he ran into. I only blame him for thinking he could.

Back to the thread though....now it's been thrown over to the Prius having issues as well. I'd really like to hear some answers that can make Toyota owners feel more secure.

ya, obama took over a sinking ship. cut him some slack.

I have an appointment tomorrow to take the truck in. hopefully they can take care of both recalls at once, the spring and pedal.

Man toyota is off to a bad start with me. Less than 2 month old truck and 2 pretty big issues already. Never had these problems with ford or dodges in the past...
