Just passed 1500 miles on the new shortblock today. No issues and still feels good. Did an oil change at 500 miles and oil looked good. Hopefully she doesnt have a temper tantrum and rod knock like the last one. Im still not sold on it not blowing up till I hit 3000 miles on it, but no matter what it will still look good in my driveway with or without a engine.

When this happened to me after my second spun bearing, as soon as I got the car back I drove it to the moon. If there will be a failure, procure it as early as possible - babying it at this point will only bring fear and sorrow. Drive it hard so you can trust it; that therapy fixed my fear after this ordeal. You won't get over it until you do this. Red line 1st through 3rd, drive it hard,and be cleansed.

Agree with this. That's the approach I've been taking ever since I got the car back from the J02 recall. Been redlining it repeatedly (after warming it up) and generally driving it hard.

After the first 1000 miles, I'm going to take it to the track and really give it a shake-down. If it's going to spin a bearing, I'd rather it happen sooner rather than later.

What dealership did you use? Looks like Summit Point in your pic, so you may be local to me.

Call them out on installing the engine without one or both of the guide pins. The rear main bearing is likely scored from the misalignment. Credit to @RZNT4R for considering the additional hidden damage.

Wow good eye! That shot is from Summit. I recently moved to Socal though, and used a large dealership around here. I asked about their experience with the J02 recall and they said they had done about 20 recalls between their two master techs, and none had come back with any issues.

I think the key is using a large dealership with a lot of trouble-free experience doing the recall work.

I'm going to drive mine hard right up to about 10k since it has a 12k additional warranty. So far so good other than what seems to me to be a rattly sound for 2 seconds or less when it's warm started. In fact I feel like it's running smoother and pulling stronger than it did for the last 20k or so before the work was done but that could be the new plugs and a few other little things that were changed while the motor was out. I did have them drop the oil pan and clean the pickup which needed to be done about 1k after the work was initially done so they changed the oil again at that time too. I think I'm about 3k since the initial work was done.

You said it is up to each individual to decide so what is wrong with my presenting some of the negatives? Should they not have more than one opinion to dwell on?

Don’t rely on misinformation.

Exactly, you expressed an opinion, an opinion against, which is the point I was making. Thank you for solidifying that.



I did not present my side as facts as I forwarded my entire opinion with "I would like to add my 50 cents". I merely gave an opposing opinion to your and other members opinions and threw in a few examples, thoughts, and personal analogies. I added a few pros and cons from personal experience and research, and yes I have a few facts in there as well, and I also appreciate RickyBobbys contribution.


Yes I did say and still do say that it is up to each individual to choose what course to take, I am merely wanting everyone to have all the information before they make an informed decision instead of relying on "feels" and an opposing opinion especially when I see mostly nay-sayers against a class action. You and others have already presented reasons against, and I am presenting reasons for, which I have not seen a well established argument on this thread yet so your "Should they not have more than one opinion to dwell on?" point is moot as I am the "other" opinion.


No one is screaming class action, as far as I am concerned DJ27 is just informing people that one has started and the option is there. I am here to throw in my opinion in the matter and let everyone know its not all doom and gloom and some good can come out of it if it is used properly, whether some form of monetary compensation, media attention, etc.


TLDR; a Class Action against Toyota is definitely an option, whether for monetary compensation, media attention, etc. It may not, in your opinion, be the best or the worst option, and it may not be successful but it is an option and someone had the time and courage to start one so lets not shit on that person and call them "shill".



And lets not pretend that we have law degrees and years of experience with law and think that there is zero or almost zero evidence for one either.


The truth is, we don't really know until it goes to court (if it even does). I've seen lawyers pull, what I thought, was the weakest excuse for evidence out of thin air and the judge somehow saw a point and the case was successful.


So, lets just agree to disagree and see how this works out. If someone wants to join the class action fine, lets not shit on them. And if they don't and would like to pursue individual suit or small claims fine, lets hope it works out for the best.

This is a bit harsh. No one here is "shitting on" those that want to join the class action suit, just voicing their opinions. For those that go this route I too hope it works out for them.
For those that are contemplating going this route here are some more facts to consider:https://margarianlaw.com/class-actio...uit-pros-cons/

I know its not the most common failure, but haven't at least a few cars burning down been attributed to engine fires after the recall work was performed?

Montana, do some research on that registration possibility.
