I took my 2005 4Runner 4wd Sport into the dealer for routine service recently. The vehicle has about 48000 miles on it, and I’ve had it since it was new, about 6 years now. I was surprised when my service adviser told me that it needed to have the front timing cover resealed, and that would cost $1500. He said it would have been covered under the 5 year, 60K warranty, but I was past that on the years of service. I appealed to Toyota’s national office, and they said the same thing - no warranty.
So I don’t see any oil leaking, there were and are no symptoms. I don’t really want to shell out that amount to fix something that isn’t a big deal. Any advice you all could send me would be much appreciated.
