Warning! 2008 highlander oil leak - Toyota Nation Forum : Toyota Car and Truck Forums

Oil Hose Kit 04009-33131. What a letdown.

I will call Monday morning and ask them why they installed the cheaper hose, I'm pretty sure the answer will be comical at best.

I will then go ahead and buy the all metal tubing that actually solves the issue of hose leakage. There are always these mitigating factors when dealerships work on cars, this one is weird considering they gave me a loaner car, they did 5 other TSB items, and they paid the tow charge. I mean how much more was the correct part? $3.00? The actual cost of this problem is minimum $500 and could of easily headed into several thousands of dollars. They decided they had to save save THREE bucks. That engine could, should be legendary. That is what manufacterers of cars seek to impress upon buyers, legandary. Not "oops". Almost!

Can any of you explain that insanity? Are they cheap or stupid? This is why I avoid the dealership service departments.

I will spend the $30.00 or so and replace this half measure part myself. Thanks for pointing out to me that part number. I will post the answer they give me when I ask the service department Why? Why did you give me another inferior part for such an awesome engine?

Really it doesn't make any sense.

Does the 2012 V6 have this possible hose problem or have they fixed it with a steel line?
Thanks to all for the input on this problem.

Fixed... I think it was something like May (or some other time in the spring) of 2009 that production switched to using the all-metal line. The actual date is in the big thread somewhere.

Had the same issue with my 2007 Camry XLE with 50k miles. The rubber oil line broke (see picture) about 2 blocks from my home. Oil was all over the engine, and the garage. Had it towed to the dealer and they insisted on replacing it with the same rubber piece. Most of that line was metal but went into about a 2 inch piece of rubber. Made no sense not to replace it with the all metal. This was in 8/09 and after having the "famous" shift issue with the transmission along with many other issues I decided to trade the Camry in for the 2011 RAV4 for which I am very pleased.
