Actually lucked out at the dealership...
Went to the dealer with a CEL. I already knew it was a P0300 code error (Random misfire). But I also knew lift was fubar'd, from an "earlier attempt." I feared the worse with a broken lift bolt, but found out that it was this TSB instead http://www.radphys.com/TSB_ECM_CEL.pdf Don't understand it, but its getting fixed under warranty. Thank goodness, because they are replacing all four fuel injectors and the ECU. I also have to have my oil control valve housing replaced. So, bout $2500 bucks fixed for about 260.00. Not a bad day, plus I might be working at the Toyota Assembly plant in Georgetown, KY.

Good times.

After talking with him a little more, they are going to replace my lift bolts at no extra charge! Shawn O' Bryan rules! (Service Manager)

LoL, reminds me of O'Doyle Rules!

Can he replaced mine for free, too confused frown


To have played and laughed with enthusiasm
and sung with exultation
To know even one life has breathed easier
This is to have succeeded.
