Toyota Replacing Engines in New Tundra Trucks

May 31, 2007

TORRANCE, Calif. --- Toyota is replacing engines in some of its new Tundra pickups because of reports of camshafts breaking in the 5.7-liter V-8 engines. According to USA Today, the problem has reportedly occurred in about 20 Tundras so far.Toyota is considering issuing a recall.The manufacturing defect is being blamed on a subcontractor. The problem occurred in the later phases of the manufacture of camshafts that control intake valves. When a camshaft breaks, the engine will just barely work or fail altogether.Instead of fixing the affected engines, Toyota is giving owners new ones shipped overnight to dealers.
