Toyota Announces Voluntary Recall

V6 Engine Crankshaft Pulley Must Be Replaced

By Mark Hallburn
Publisher, PutnamLIVE.com

Toyota's problems continue with the announcement of another recall. This involves more than 400,000 vehicles.

The Japanese automaker, which has an engine/transmission plant in Buffalo, announced that it will conduct a voluntary safety recall involving approximately 283,200 Toyota and 137,000 Lexus vehicles to replace the crankshaft pulley on the V6 engine.

There is a possibility that the outer ring of the crankshaft pulley may become misaligned with the inner ring, causing noise and/or illumination of the discharge warning light. If this condition is not corrected, the belt for the power steering pump may become detached from the pulley and the driver may notice a sudden increase in steering effort. There are no reports of accidents or injuries related to this condition.



The vehicles involved are certain:

  • 2004 Avalon
  • 2004 and 2005 Camry, Highlander, Sienna, and Solara
  • 2006 Highlander HV
  • 2004 and 2005 ES330 and RX330
  • And 2006 RX400h

No other Toyota or Lexus vehicles or these Toyota models with 4 cylinder engines are involved.

Toyota is currently working on obtaining the necessary replacement parts. Once the replacement parts have been produced in sufficient quantities, Toyota will send an owner notification by first class mail advising owners to make an appointment with an authorized Toyota or Lexus dealer to have the crankshaft pulley inspected and if necessary, replaced at no charge. The owner notifications will be mailed by first class mail beginning in January, 2012.

In the meantime, if an abnormal noise is heard coming from the engine compartment, the owner is asked to make an appointment with any Toyota or Lexus dealer to have the vehicle inspected for this condition.

Detailed information and answers to questions are available to customers at www.Toyota.com/Recall and the Toyota Customer Experience Center (1 800-331-4331) or www.Lexus.com/Recall and Lexus Customer Satisfaction (1 800-255-3987).

Respondents Want WVU In SEC

Big 12 Comes In Third In PutnamLIVE.com Survey

By Mark Hallburn
Publisher, PutnamLIVE.com

West Virginia University's recent move to the Big 12 Conference, from the Big East Conference, is not popular with PutnamLIVE.com survey respondents. They indicated a  strong preference for regional conferences with teams closer to Morgantown.

Of the 143 that voted, 66, or 46.2 percent, say The Mountaineers should have moved to the South Eastern Conference against football powerhouses Alabama and Louisiana State University. Another 29 respondents say the athletic teams should be playing in the nearby Big 10, against Ohio State and Michigan.

Less than one third of the respondents, 19, voted "The Big 12 is a great move." That's only 13.3 percent. Fourteen of you said, "Who cares, I'm a Marshall fan." Finally, only 10 respondents voted for WVU to stay in The Big East Conference, only seven percent of those that cast a vote.

Of course, PutnamLIVE.com must state that this is not a scientific poll. Just like sports, it's all about fun and games.

This survey was online from Tuesday, October 25th, 2011 until Tuesday, November 8th, 2011.

Health Department Fails To Respond To FOIA Request-Again

Five Business Day Window Has Passed

By Mark Hallburn
Publisher, PutnamLIVE.com

Why won't the Putnam County Health Department divulge the mileage logs for its vehicles?Jacqueline Fleshman

Why won't it produce a police report for a stolen notebook computer?

Why won't it produce office hour logs/time sheets for its administrator?

On October 22nd, 2011, PutnamLIVE.com sent the above FOIA request to Director Jacqueline Fleshman. Under West Virginia law, the department has five "business" days to respond. We sent this request after failing to get a response to one that was sent this summer.

It hasn't, as of this publication November 3rd, 2011.

What is the department hiding?

Why has it failed to answer two FOIA requests?

PutnamLIVE.com sent a copy of the October 22nd FOIA request to West Virginia Department of Health and Human Services executives Nancye M. Bazzle, Joesph L. Barker, Amy D. Atkins, and Marian L. Swinker. In our email, the question was asked, "Does DHHR advocate the violation of West Virginia law?"

Deputy Commissioner for Public Health Bazzle responded, This is not an issue for the Bureau for Public Health. You will need to address this request to the Putnam County Health Department." She missed the point. The Putnam County Health Department ducked the FOIAs. 

Part of the problem is that Putnam County Prosecutor Mark A. Sorsaia refusesMark A. Sorsaia to prosecute FOIA request violations-which are a misdemeanor. By failing to do this part of his jobm Sorsaia is allowing government officials to break the law. 

PutnamLIVE.com will follow up on this issue and report what happens.

By Mark Hallburn
Publisher, PutnamLIVE.com

In line six, Barbara Tillis goes on to state, "In fact, he did not hit me at anytime." She also blames her daughter, Jordan, for calling the police.

"I then took a chunk of concrete block and broke out the windshield on Gary's car," Barbara Tillis states.

Tillis was busted September 19th, 2011 by Eleanor Police Corporal Harry Teare after a dispute at the Tillis' home in Eleanor.

The next day, Tillis was released on $4,000 bond from the Western Regional Jail and Correctional Facility, in Barboursville.
