Toyota launched the third generation of its full-size Tundra truck for the 2022 model year. Many truck enthusiasts were surprised when Toyota swapped out the Tundra’s naturally aspirated 5.7-liter V8 for a twin-turbocharged 3.4-liter V6. The automaker insisted that the futuristic engine would be powerful and efficient. But then some early 2022 Tundra buyers found their trucks displaying a warning and going into limp mode. Toyota revealed that the Tundra’s problem was the wastegate designed to relieve pressure from the turbocharger, and claims that finding a new source for this part solved the problem.
