Toyota Tacoma Problems

Automatic Transmission May Not Shift Correctly at High Mileages

At higher mileages, (125,000-150,000) 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.

Air Flow Sensor May Fail at Higher Mileages

At higher mileages (125,000+) the mass air flow sensors may cause the vehicle to idle rough, run rich and even stall. It is recommended to replace the mass air flow sensor with a factory unit because the aftermarket units have very mixed results.

Amber Running/Parking Lights Melted, Cracked and Burned the Lens Directly in Front of Them!

The amber front running lights, located in the head light assembly may melt or crack their lens. The correction at this time is to replace the head light assembly.
