The head gaskets are prone to leaks in as little as 60,000 miles. When the head gasket is replaced, the knock sensor harness should be replaced as well, as it can be damaged by leaky head gaskets, resulting in a serious decrease in fuel efficiency or in long term engine damage.

The idle air control motors tend to become carboned up at around 100,000 miles and can cause a start and stall and/or stalling at stop sign problems. Our technicians tell us that many times these motors can be cleaned, however, the sure bet is to replace the idle air control motor and clean the throttle body.

At 125,000-150,000 miles, the Master Cylinder may need replacing. It is critical to adjust the brake pedal to Master Cylinder pushrod clearance or the brakes will drag and over heat.

The Check Engine Light may illuminate on vehicles with an automatic transmission, with code P0713 stored. This fault code is related to the transaxle fluid temperature sensor. Our technicians tell us a revised transaxle wire harness is available which should correct this concern.

Small pieces of rusty steel were found in the path the left front wheel had followed and it was immobile. Dealer said no brake pad was present, after it was towed there, and also said that rotor would need to be replaced due to pitted surface. There were never any warning li...

I recently got my tires rotated at Costco and after driving about 5 miles the tire inflation light came on. After a several day saga and many trips to Costco I was informed by Toyota that this is a "known issue". The fix is relatively easy to do yourself. You have to hold the reset button under the steering wheel while driving straight forward (in a parking lot or safe location with no traffic) for approximately 30 seconds. If you call Toy...

Started the car one morning and the transmission started shifting extremely hard between 1st and 2nd gear. Took it to the dealership and the entire transmission had to be replaced. Thank goodness for my extended warranty. A $3700 repair cost me $50.
