Auto pro tip: if your vehicle has 370,000 miles on it, pull over and call a tow truck. :lol:
Well, I am buying a new honda pilot for lady grey bush. Not going to have two car payments so I'll be getting a new engine. 7,500 is a helluva lot less than 35,000.
I had the 2008 and 2013 Tacos. In 2016 I test drove the "new" Taco with the 3.5 and 6 speed. Felt weak in the low rpm range compared to the 4.0 in the previous ones. Transmission seemed to hunt around a lot too.
Brought home a 2016 Tundra Crewmax in 2wd. Just picked up a 2018 Crewmax in 4wd a few weeks ago. I would buy a Taco if they put the 5.7 in it though. :twisted:

Added in 2 minutes 37 seconds:
Once upon a time I had a 2004 Colorado with the I5 engine. was 130 miles from home when the #5 fuel injector went out. Burnt the head driving it home. $5k in damage. Fixed it and dumped it.

I drove drunk one time guys. I know it’s shocking, but it was all good. They let you drive the golf carts drunk at our golf course.

2005 / $12,000 / 370,000 miles. I think you better do a little more research on this.

Seems like you could sell that turd as-is for several k, take that $2200 for the converter and the $7500 for a rebuilt engine, and buy a used with half the mileage for about the same price. The mileage isn't just on your engine; It's on the trans, drive-train, suspension...Everything. The only way it's worth a new engine is if you do it yourself.

You're welcome to come over and use my lift, engine hoist, air and whatnot. Just bring beer and lady graybush.

An ignition coil is 80 bucks and you can replace those easy. Which I will do with the 5 other ones. Tacoma's have 4 converters which are part of the two exhaust manifolds. One side is 1000 other is side is 800 plus new gaskets and labor. Total about $2200
I would change the one coil and clear the codes. drive it for a few days and see if an o2 code comes up. I can't see how driving 70miles on 5 cyl would cause all 4 cats to get blocked.

If you have a cylinder blowing raw gas into your cat, it will explode inside the cat and destroy it fairly quickly. From the outside the converter can look normal but if you shake it, it will sound like a baby's rattle.

I live to get on the bus and pretend I’m driving a fancy sports car like a ford pinto or a Kia. I even make the racing and gear changing sounds.
