New Tundra Air Injection System Bypass Module Available

A new solution is available for Toyota Tundras and Sequoias that have malfunctioning air injection system. Tundra Headquarters first ran an article “Tundra and Sequoia $4000 Air Injection System Problem”┬áin 2010 when the stories of outlandish repair costs to the nonessential system began flooding forums and blogs. While Toyota has since warrantied the air injection system on 2nd generation (2007 and up) Tundras and Sequoias, this warranty isn’t perfect:

  1. There is no warranty for 1st generation Tundras or Sequoias that have this problem
  2. The warranty ends after 10 years or 150k miles

However, a custom module being offered by a TundraSolutions.com member promises to “fix” your air injection system for less than $100.
