Known Problems

Drivers may hear a loud noise, much like a vacuum cleaner, coming from their engine on cold starts. This affects the 2005-2009 Toyota Sequoia iForce V8 models. 

The noise is from the secondary air pump, which sends hot air to the catalytic converter when the engine is cold. This allows the catalytic converter to clean exhaust better, and lower emissions while the engine is warming up.

Pump failure may result in:

Fixing the issue involves removal of the intake manifold, and replacement of the secondary air pump.

A defective sensor in the airbag (SRS) system can cause the airbag malfunction light to illuminate.
