Toyota Recalls Roughly 102K Tundras and Lexus LX 600s for Engine Issues

Sam Smith

Toyota is recalling roughly 102,000 Tundras and Lexus LX 600s from the 2022 and 2023 model years for an engine issue that could cause rough running, knocking, or even loss of motive power.

The issue, according to Toyota, stems from machining debris that may not have been properly cleaned out of the engines during the assembly process. If the 3.4-liter V-6 engine still had contaminants from the machining process in it, those little bits of debris would wreak havoc on vital surfaces such as the those of the main bearings. Ultimately, the debris could cause knocking, poor running/misfires, or even total failure.

Importantly, this recall only affects the non-hybrid versions of the Tundra from those model years. If you bought one of the new Tundras and it came equipped with the i-Force Max hybrid powertrain, which pairs the twin-turbo, 3.4-liter V-6 engine and 10-speed automatic transmission with an electric motor integrated into the bell housing of the gearbox, you needn’t worry. (All existing versions of the LX 600 are non-hybrid, so pay extra attention to your mailbox if you own one of those.)

Toyota is working on a fix for the issue, and owners of involved vehicles will be notified by late July of 2024, the automaker says. If you want to find out if your Tundra of LX 600 is involved with this recall before then, head to or and put in your VIN number.

    I literally bought a 2024 Limited 2 days ago. Traded in our 2018**. I was already a little nervous about this decision. This certainly doesn’t help. After urgently searching at various other sites, it does seem to be limited to the MODEL years and not the year it was made. Not sure if my 2024 was actually made in 2023. Hopefully that means that Toyota already had this fixed by the time the 2024 Model years were made. Hopefully. Ugh, causing some heartburn now. Gulp. At least I bought the extended warranty.

    ** I know, I know, I know. There will be a certain segment of commenters that will probably castrate me for this.
