Known Problems

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.

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.
