I messed up really bad.

19 year old moron here, tried doing my own oil change on my 2014 Toyota Tundra. Ended up cracking the plastic housing for the oil filter because it was on way too tight. Talked with my mom and step dad, they said I can take it to the nearest lube shop about 5 miles down the road from here with no oil and be just fine. I got about half way there, lost power steering I pulled over and turned the engine off. I tried turning it over once more a few mins later and got nothing. It's sized, ain't it? It's over man, that's everything I had. I still got 25k on the loan, it's all I had and it's over ain't it man.
I have 6k to my name, is this enough to replace the engine? And is it even worth it to replace the engine or will I always have little problems because it doesn't all fit together perfect anymore?
I was planning on running this truck to at least 300k.

    well it's a brand new truck, engines are more expensive new cars. you can buy a whole engine for $100 for a normal car but a new headlight is $4000 on new cars
    that said you can just replace the engine

      I should probably add, I put oil in it before I left. About 7 quarts and added more after I shut it off. Problem is it leaked all out because of the cracked housing for the filter.

      I think that's my only option then. What are the odds of the engine being fully shot? Maybe it just overheated.

          Being that oil is pumped directly through the filter, it could all leak out in a minute or 2 or not go through the whole engine in the first place

      OP, what lights came on in the dash leading up to breaking down?

      Also your parents are morons, 1, for telling you to drive it with a cracked filter housing, and 2, for letting you go 25k in debt for a 10 year old truck at 19. Disregard all of their financial and automotive advice from now on because it sounds like flipping a coin is more likely to lead you to the right choices than listening to them.

      Even without AAA a 5 mile tow is like $50 during business hours. Anon racked up a massive bill to save $50. The plastic housing is probably cheap and an easy repair as well, he could have fixed that in his driveway.

            You don't understand. People LOVE Toyota Tacomas. I've driven them, and they aren't that good. That 5.7 was reliable sure, but the acceleration was mushy, and the suspension wasn't setup for real heavy towing. They also all came with open diffs or lsd, even on 4wd models, which made no sense. At least that's how they were for a time.

            Meanwhile, customers eat this shit up like candy. 2014 Tundra with 60k miles? 40k off the lot. Can you really get a new F150 for that? No, not really, even work trucks out here are upcharged beyond that price point. But it's close enough to consider just getting a new F150 or Ram 1500.

            I need you to understand, when I bought my Colorado I was cross shopping every truck out there, and eventually went with the best new deal I was offered, 26k OTD with 7 miles for a WT with a tow package and rear lockers. A 2019 Tundra at the time was, minimum, 44k. That's the bare minimum, SR5s were the lowest trim any dealers carried and when SRs came on the lot they were taken instantly at SR5 prices anyway. A used 2015 with 90k miles on it (in 4 years mind you) SR5 was listed for 39k. That's pre covid pricing. It sold the same day, despite new Tundras being within the same price bracket.

            I really didn't understand it. I thought Tundras and Tacomas were a money laundering scheme. They were so abysmally underwhelming compared to the Silverado and F150s at the time, and the salesmen were blatant liars about the Tundra having best in class power/towing, to the point I called them out on it and asked what the frick they meant by best in class if they're beaten by everything else in class when optioned. Yet Toyota fanboys buy these trucks by the dozens every day. I had one salesmen tell me being moved from a Toyota dealership to a GMC dealership was the biggest kick in the balls he ever experienced, and his paycheck was cut by over 75% when it happened because the sales aren't there.

        Embrace the shitbox. I'm almost 40 and making $90k, but I still drive a shitbox that I bought for $6k. No stress, no mess.

        Drive with oil this time and it will last

        Never owned one but that gen tundra is pretty good, the 5.7 is held in high esteem (is it the 5.7 that you have?) and toyotas have a good rep.

        Not sure it makes sense to try to sell your fricked up Tundra as is. You are not going to get a good price for a 10 year old truck with a burned out engine. You could fix up the engine, try to sell it then for a decent price that might pay back most of your loan. Or just keep it, assuming you can get good life out of the used engine.

        Will shop around and see what option is best. Expect to see another thread with a couple options of what to do in a few days because I'm too moronic to think for myself.
        I love you all, thank you so much for everyone's help.

          Seriously bro you can get a pickup truck with a metal engine for under $5k. Just return the tundra, go bankrupt if necessary and drive an older cheaper truck with a metal engine while not spending massive stacks of cash on a broken pos

            Even if they repo, if they cannot get the full amount of the outstanding loan debt when they sell it, OP will still be responsible to pay the difference.

            I swear this board has the worst advice on DA. Bankrupcy costs thousands to file, is a pain in the ass, makes sure your life is hell for 7 years, and many times you still have to make payments on your discharged debt. the only people that benefit from bankrupcy are israeli bankrupcy lawyers.
            It would be much, much cheaper just to put a motor in OP's truck.

            19 year old moron here, tried doing my own oil change on my 2014 Toyota Tundra. Ended up cracking the plastic housing for the oil filter because it was on way too tight. Talked with my mom and step dad, they said I can take it to the nearest lube shop about 5 miles down the road from here with no oil and be just fine. I got about half way there, lost power steering I pulled over and turned the engine off. I tried turning it over once more a few mins later and got nothing. It's sized, ain't it? It's over man, that's everything I had. I still got 25k on the loan, it's all I had and it's over ain't it man.
            I have 6k to my name, is this enough to replace the engine? And is it even worth it to replace the engine or will I always have little problems because it doesn't all fit together perfect anymore?
            I was planning on running this truck to at least 300k.

            damn. op. you made some mistakes but at least you are man enough to admit them.

            it will be a funny mistake 20 years from now, and you're building some character.

            it's a shame you didn't check the oil when your car died. it may be salvageable. i'm not familar with this vehicle but you can probably change the rod/main bearing with the engine still in the car. It would be good to know if your engine turns over. even better if you can get a peek at the cylinder walls.

            you don't necessarily need to commit to bankruptcy, but 25k is enough money to be brought to court over this, and bent over. it's possible to default and be a sneaky israelite dependable on your state laws. there are laws regarding debt collection and statue of limitations.

            I personally would put some oil in, and try and get it started. see if it's knocking, and what your oil pressure is. If you aren't buring oil like crazy or hearing something knocking you might be able to limp it along.

            Also, there are some insurance outs if you feel like getting spicy.

    The lack of oil pressure light is giving my head blue balls. There is like a 1% chance that your engine is OK and you locked up the idler/AC compressor/alternator/whatever by pure coincidence on the way to the shop. Hopefully they check the engine with the belt off before starting the replacement. I have seen this EXACT scenario happen before. Only once, but enough to make me think

        Seized belt-driven components usually won't stall a running engine, but will often stop it from restarting or turning by hand. ALWAYS remove the serpentine belt when checking if an engine is locked up.

            Toyota is the only one I've seen using them, they're a horrible idea. I have a 2012 FJ and it uses this homosexualy system, but the pre-2010 versions still use a regular oil filter located up top on the engine.

            So if you buy a +2010 with slightly more horsepower, your oil change goes from a 15 minute job to a 1 hour job minimum. Have to remove skid plate, special wrench, special pre-drain plug, special spigot that taps into bottom of housing to drain oil from filter before loosening, then crank off housing to get at messy paper element inside, replace two separate o-rings, insert new element, re-tighten everything, then start filling, check level, and when you're damn sure it's not leaking and it's good to go, re-bolt the front skid plate.

            Not just a Toyota thing, most manufacturers have at least one engine from the last 30 years where they've done a cartridge style oil filter. Mostly Europeans, but off the top of my head (of what's available in the US), Subaru and Honda are the only ones that haven't.

            I always thought it was extra dumb how BMW liked putting those upright on top of the motor so they can leak onto the motor and be a pain in the ass to change cleanly.
            Also electronic dipsticks only and not a redundant metal one because lol, lmao.
            I would rather a plastic toyota filter than a subaru metal one with the ring of fire exhaust, aka satan's anus, that you needs a thorough and violent fisting session to change.

            The ring of fire is overblown, it was like one body style 15 years ago. Older ones didn't wrap the exhaust manifold in front of the engine, and ~2013+ ones with the FA/FB engine have more than made up for it by putting the spin on oil filter on top next to the oil cap. In either case, a filter claw with an extension makes the ring of fire a non-issue, you don't have to put your hand up in there at all.

            At least with BMW I can pump the oil out of the dipstick tube. Still takes an hour to pump it but it's pretty easy to change the top mount filter and then do something else for 45 minutes while the pump does its thing
