sb5walker, that was a great story about the old rusted out truck!
DubVipers, I agree with that. The Tundra just isn't my thing either.
I know that vehicles have come a long way in the past 20-30 years, they look sharp & have all kinds of gadgets. At the same time they are built so cheaply compared to the older models. I owned a 77 Ford f150 long bed & that truck was a solid well built truck. It wasn't all fancy like the new ones but I bet the new ones won't last for 30+ years either! My Toyota is 19 years old & still running very good, I expect that it will go for many more. I wonder if the new trucks will last this long? I guess I just like the older stuff & feel that it's built better.
Anyways this thread is really off topic now, I just tried to put my input in since I am a Ford guy too. To make it simple the Toyota trucks have a great reputation, Everyone knows of the 22R engine, I see beat up horrible looking abused Toyota trucks driving down the road everyday. No smoke & they just seem to keep going. That's why I wanted one. I also owned an 86 Toyota p/u that always ran great & never let me down.
As to the original poster's issue with the PCV valve, good luck with it. I haven't changed mine yet because I don't want to pull the intake & I don't want to break the grommet either. At this time it's like this. If it ain't broke - don't fix it! I guess every manufacturer does really stupid things no matter how small thet are.
