Toyota Pickup ProblemsReplace ignition key by 100,000 miles
The EGR System tends to get restricted or blocked with carbon after 100,000- 125,000 miles which will cause an emissions test failure for NOX. If the EGR system is equipped with an EGR temperature sensor it will trigger a Check Engine Light for improper EGR flow. The repair is to clean out the EGR passages and the EGR Temperature sensor. Our technicians tell this repair is pretty straight forward and takes about 1-1.5 hours. It is also wise to verify the EGR system components i.e. the Transducer, EGR Valve and VSV Solenoid at this time.
At higher mileages (125,000+) the Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor may intermittently stop working, especially when the vehicle is fully warmed up. This can cause the engine to stall unexpectedly.
Toyota Pickup QuestionsWhen I turn the key you can hear a whizzing sound, but the engine won't crank. (1 answer)
After a few tries the engine will slowly crank over and then finally start. It runs fantastic after it gets goins, I only have a problem when I'm trying to start it.
