Was going through FaceBook about 15 minutes ago and on TundraCrew a post was out that the fix was in for the recalled fuel pumps.
We are set for this Tuesday. For the sake of the mechanic working on it try to bring it in clean, and with a 1/4 tank or less as those things are HEAVY!
This is my good deed for the century! Now buggar off! https://www.toyota.com/recall1592523921345.png

Insert funny catch phrase here.

The dealer replaced my fuel pump yesterday. When leaving the parking lot, gave normal foot pressure and spun the tires, it was awesome! I think the fix is the E85 Pump for all models. One less part to buy when attaching a SC :)

I need to go do this. I got my notice awhile ago.

Called to schedule this. They have to order parts. They said parts should be in Tuesday. I’m on the books to get this fixed Wednesday. Ill have them do my last Toyota care service while they have it, have them install the Fumoto valve. Also have them look at the rear diff leak. See what they want to do with that.
:)

dropped it off this morning. The service guy was kind of an ass hole.
Got the fuel pump recall, 20k toyota care service and they put my Fumoto valve on.
When he asked about the leaking rear diff and I showed him he said “these wet spots” I said yeah it’s worse on the other side. He went around and looked at it and said “Toyota’s probably not going to do anything for you it’s not dripping”
SMH. So now Toyota is ok that one of their trucks with 15k miles on it has differential fluid coming out between almost every bolt as long as it’s not dripping? WTF.
They recalled a quarter million Tacomas for the exact same issue and called it a “catastrophic failing part.” Their words not mine.
I miss my old service advisor he actually cared and wanted the customer to be taken care of. The dealership got bought out about a year and half ago from a corporation that owns a lot of dealerships from Mercedes to Jeep. I’ve had two new advisors since then and both could care less to help you as a customer.

My service advisor is one of the very few things I miss about my Audi, Aubrey was quite amazing and she cares. I wish she would jump ship and go to the local Toyota Shop.
Did you notice any change in throttle response? Asking for a friend ;)
