2005 Toyota Sequoia SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
Owned this for about 3 months. Tranny designed to release torque build up. Felt as though someone had tapped my back bumper at a stop light. Became really annoying after a short time. Also, valve noise was considered normal (says so even in manual). Ran premium fuel, but still could hear valve noise at times. These two items were enough to sell it after dealership said this was normal characteristics and working at factory specs.
ride, room and rear window roll down.
move exhaust to side, I could smell gas fumes when rear window was down. Eliminate tranny torque built up clunking. Eliminate valve noise.
