Toyota Motor Mount, Frame Failure Warning

Post by RedRoxx44 » Apr 10 2017 5:44 pm

Had bad news today on FJ, what I thought was a CV joint was a broken motor mount that put a hole in my frame. Dealer would not touch it and advised me not to drive it ( drove back from Cali in that condition) so it's at a welding shop.
This is a known problem with 2005 and higher Tacomas, FJ, etc. with some off roading, and according to some forums, not extreme stuff.
I advise anyone who drives one of these vehicles and sees quite a bit of dirt time, get your motor mounts inspected or do it yourself.
Early on the only remedy Toyota would offer is to replace the frame, and they did help out on some of the early ones, but if you've got miles on your vehicle, forget it.

If I see something dead in the road, I head directly over it.

There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

Well crap, I'm going to have to give my 2012 FJ a thorough look over. I tend to drive it a little hard.
