2006 Toyota 4Runner Problems

Automatic Transmission May Not Shift Correctly at High Mileages

At higher mileages, (125,000-150,000) the automatic transmission may not shift correctly. This can be caused by the throttle position sensor being out of adjustment or a shift solenoid needing to be replaced. Typically the transmission does not need to be completely overhauled.

Car Won't Start Due to Worn/Corroded Solenoid Contacts in Starter

If the car will not start, the most likely problem is worn or corroded solenoid contacts in the starter. Usually, these parts can be replaced without purchasing a new starter.

Power Steering Pump May Leak on Higher Mileage Vehicles

At higher mileages (125,000 -150,000) the power steering pump may begin to leak on the 6 cylinder vehicles and could require replacement.

Side Curtain Air Bags Deploy Unexpectedly

The side curtain air bags may deploy unexpectedly, resulting in possible occupant injury. Dealers will replace the air bag control module with one that has improved programming free of charge to resolve the concern.

Accelerator Pedal May Stick Open

The accelerator pedal can become trapped under an unsecured or incompatible floor mat. This can cause the accelerator pedal to stick in the wide open position, increasing the risk of a crash. At this time, the remedy plan is still under development, but will most likely involve modification or replacement of the accelerator pedal and Toyota all-weather floor mats. No schedule of owner notification is available at this time. The Toyota recall number is 90L; the Lexus number is 90LG.
