2007 Toyota Tundra’s camshaft failures

Toyota is out looking for more 2007 Toyota Tundra’s with camshaft failures. According to the company’s spokesman, twenty 5.7 liter V8 engine Toyota Tundras have had snapped camshafts. The manufacturer of the camshaft, who is unknown, has traced the problem and has corrected it. Nonetheless, Toyota’s camshafts are designed to avoid collateral damage if they snap.

The problem was found in “an early batch,” and that “Toyota is confident in the production from that point on,” Toyota spokesman, Mike Michels told Automotive News. Toyota is trying to figure out how many more have been affected.

Kind of looks bad when you’re on top and are trying to take over the 4×4 market that is already dominated by domestic auto makers. The 5.7 liter V8 engine of the 2007 Toyota Tundra was rushed just in time for the launch.
