problem #1

May 312002

Tundra 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,000 miles
2002 Toyota Tundra 4X2 SR5 with under 18,000 miles, at 45 degree angle while in drive and no load, vehicle will roll backwards and will continue to roll until the brakes are applied. While rolling a loud constant clicking noise eminates from the rear end as if gears were slipping. Vehicle seldomly driven and almost never pulls any loads, never abused or wrecked and maintained regularly. This has occurred since the vehicle was purchased in may of 2002. Lakeside Toyota informed me today 9-20-04, this was normal for the truck and that they simulated it with another truck.
