I use Russian specs usually, modified by my experience with my own 3.4.

I'm suspicious. This does not seem quite like reality:

The MECH said Radiator fluid was leaking through the seals causing electrolysis.
What seals? And how would that cause electrolysis? And why would that lead to TWO new motors under warranty? Methinks he is trolling with irony?

Perhaps the headgaskets failed DUE to prefailure electrolysis due to failure to change coolant regularly, but that would hardly be warranty. I could be missing something.

I noticed the problem every time i started up the motor (SMOKE), puffy.

They took care of it NO PROBLEM.

My problem had nothing to do with your mysterious problem. My problem had to do with my user error and a small quirk with these spark plugs getting tightened correctly.

Toyota's are still the most dependable vehicles out there, I have had excellent luck with them for 20 years now and wouldn't want to depend on any other vehicle.
