5.7 Toyota Tundra Blows Up
On May 26 2011 we left to go camping for the Memorial Day weekend. We had driven 35 miles when the engine started to knock. I stopped and checked the oil It was full. The oil pressure was normal as was the temp. I started the truck and turned around, Shortly the engine made a bang and seized up.
On May 27th I hauled the truck to Larry Miller Toyota in Salt Lake City, Utah. After two weeks I met with the Toyota rep, he stated that water had gotten into the engine causing the engine to throw 4 rods through the block and that Toyota would not honor the warranty.
Today is July 7th I finally got the truck back at a cost of only $ 10,700 dollars. Toyota could not tell me how water entered the engine. I feel this really stinks.
