Toyota 3ur-fe 5.7L V8 engine camshaft tower seal is prone to premature failure, which leads to engine oil leaking on the hot exhaust manifold, which could cause potential fire/flash hazard. More details (including photos) could be found in the recall petition at: Https://www.change.org/P/Toyota-motor-company-get-Toyota-to-recall-cam-shaft-tower-leakage-problem-on-5-7L-V8-3ur-fe-engine?source_location=topic_page

I bought this 2017 Tundra dlb cab brand new and have had to shop several times about transmission down shifting and then up- shifting on slight inclines, not engaging when put in drive then slamming into gear. 1rst time they checked fluid and said all ok,2nd time checked fluid again and was told transmission needs to be warmed up before driving, 3rd time they said they did a factory reset on transmission saying somehow out of sync / check fluid = this made it do it at different speed. Now if stopped on a slight incline while truck still in drive it rolls backwards while in gear until it catches and this causes engine stall !!! I called and asked Toyota to start tech support, after receiving a call back I was told tech's wanted to know about incline and they wanted truck overnight. So, not only did I take pictures of the incline I also filmed truck rolling backwards in drive and stalling, I took back for 4th time showed and uploaded pictures and video to shop foreman's computer ( he and another mechanic looked shocked ) they kept overnight and next day. Then I was told they couldn't duplicate, they compared to same truck ( salesman told me they didnt have one ) and that truck did same thing ( trying to say it was ok because it did it too) and then being told at present time they cannot fix and or install new parts / transmission !!!!!! this problem is going to seriously hurt, injure or kill someone !! as I told them I have had three other Toyota's, a Chevy, Ford and Grand Marquis and they don't do this. Toyota has a problem they seem to want to ignore !! please help
