2006 Toyota Avalon Problems

Check Engine Light Due to Failed Oxygen Sensor Component

The Check Engine Light may illuminate because a component of the oxygen sensor stops working. As a result the engine computer is unable to determine the proper ratio of air to fuel for the engine. Replacing the failed oxygen sensor should correct this concern.

 

Ignition Coil May Fail After 100,000 Miles

On higher mileage vehicles, an engine misfire may develop and/or the Check Engine Light may illuminate due to a failed ignition coil. It is not uncommon to replace all the coils when the first one fails in order to prevent return trips to the repair shop.

Oil Leak From the Valve Cover Gaskets

The 6 cylinder engines have a tendency to leak oil from the valve cover gaskets, especially the one near the firewall.

2006 Toyota Avalon Recalls

Seat Heater

Southeast Toyota is recalling certain vehicles because the seat heater element may become damaged as a result of compression of the seat cushion. The damaged element could short causing burning of the seat cushion, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will disconnect seat heaters with copper strand elements and refund the purchase price of the seat heater accessory to correct this concern.

Brake Performance Deteriorates Over Time

A seal between the master cylinder and brake booster may fail and allow fluid to leak into the brake booster. This can cause reduced braking performance. Dealers will replace the seal with a newly designed one free of charge to resolve the concern.
