Report A Problem

Toyota issued a recall on V6 models with cruise control due to defective throttle cables.

The rear Oxygen sensors are a critical element in fuel control (unlike other vehicles) and can cause an emissions test failure for high CO and HCs. The sensing element cracks and and reports an erroneous steady state lean condition which confuses the computer, which in turn makes the fuel mixture overly rich.

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

It is important to regularly check the valve clearance as the exhaust valves may become too tight. This will lead to valve failures, which are expensive to repair.

It is very important that the rear level sensor is properly bled after any brake work or the rear brake stopping efficiency may be compromised. The Front Brake Rotors can wear causing a pulsation felt in the brake pedal.

Toyota has issued a recall because of a possible defect in the check valve that helps prevent spillage at the gasoline pump. A malfunction of this valve could result in a fuel fire in the presence of an ignition source. The dealer will inspect and repair the check valve if necessary.
Toyota issued a recall on certain models with automatic transmissions due to brake booster performance. Toyota will replace the brake booster as needed under warranty.
Toyota also issued a recall on the seat belts because of a faulty buckle status switch. The seat belt status switch can be replaced under the recall.
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.
At higher mileages (125,000+) the Mass Air Flow Sensor may cause the vehicle to idle rough, run rich and even stall. Our technicians recommended to replace the Mass Air Flow Sensor with a factory unit because the aftermarket units have very mixed results.
A code P0770 or P0773 may occur at higher mileages which indicates that the 3-way lock-up solenoid is defective and will need replacement.
