That cant be true.I never hear doo guys admit they break down....except for the locked up crank 2200 mile 600 etec that a guy dropped off by me 3 years ago and never came back for.









I think he did mention it was 5hp down

Being a mechanic, I'm probably a little jaded here, but last I knew they ALL break down.

Too bad Toyota doesn't make a sled
