USA O2 sensor

This is the best place to get helpful advice for any Toyota problem one migth be having. My problem started yesterday with the check engine light coming on. I didnt really know what to do...the truck was running fine and not making any sounds. I came home and did a search on Yahoo for Tundra+check engine. The first place online it suggested was Toyota Nation. Just about 99% of answers were involving the O2 sensor. One suggested taking my truck to Advanced auto parts and let them hook my truck up to an electronic code reader. So thats what I did. Sure enough it told the story. O2 sensor was faulty. First thing this morning I called the dealership where I purchased my Tundra and asked if Toyota was having problems with the O2 sensors. The service managers reply was what year is my Tundra and how many miles was on it. I told him 2001 and about 64,000 miles. He said Toyota had extended the warranty on the sensors to 80,000 miles. So It looks as if I'm covered. I came close to buying the sensor from the auto parts store at $128.00 but held out for some warranty hope.

Yeah see it pays to contact your dealer. You never know what multitudes of info they have.
Also sometimes the dealer price is cheaper for some accessories. Doesn't hurt to call or drop in.
congrats 01SCTundra and Good Luck...

USA O2 sensor followup

Well I went into my Toyota dealership and as promised they changed out both O2 sensors on my 01 Tundra under an extended warranty for the sensors.

One of mine was replaced at around 60k. I paid for it but toyota refunded me after I sent them the reciept.
I just replaced the other side a few days ago at 116k miles. Out of warrenty
I went to AutoZone and they scaned and found P0135 Bank 1 Sensor 1
They had a Boush replacement for $56. Replaced, disconnected the battery for 15 minutes and Check engine light is gone : )
