Toyota Tundra Common Problems & Maintenance Tips
As a pickup truck, Toyota Tundra has to load heavy goods and transport for a long distance, which result in some common problems on it pop out even driven on different roads. Here are the most common ones:
First, braking system operated poorly. Maybe it truly is not easy to brake such a big car and Toyota Tundra's brake system would wear easier than regular small car. Tundra drivers said that when they braked, they could hear noisy sound and feel vibrations on the brake pedals. Brakes responded poorly and score marks can be seen clearly on the brake rotors. In this condition, if your Toyota Tundra is experiencing similar symptoms, you can try checking your brake pad set and brake disc.
Second, engine performance suffered. A properly operated engine is the must for a smoothly running car. On Toyota Tundra, people found that engine performance suffered after it reached a certain mileage. Symptoms included slow acceleration, poor fuel economy or bad gas mileage and difficulty starting. Sometimes, metallic sounds, dropping oil pressure, dirty exhaust, overheating and illuminated Check Engine Light are also signs. You can inspect the spark plug and oil filter if similar signs appear.
Some other auto parts may not show signs like above, but they are also very important. Seat belt can protect from impact created by sudden movement, wheel seal can protect wheels from roughly moving and wiper blade can make sure drivers' visions not to be blocked by any debris on the windscreen. And cabin air filter can vent fresh and healthy air while driving. Please do not forget to maintain them as well.
