Top 10 Toyota Repair Issues

Every Toyota has its own personality, strengths and weaknesses. Over the years we’ve become experts at identifying and making some of the most common repairs for the full line of Toyota automobiles. Read on to learn more.

  1. Automatic Transmission may not shift properly at high mileages – this can be a result of the throttle position sensor being out of adjustment or a shift solenoid that needs to be replaced.
  2. Car won’t start – the Contacts in the Starter Solenoid can wear down, resulting in the starter to not engage. Replacing the starter contacts or the starter assembly will fix this issue in most cases.
  3. Pulsations during braking – front brake rotors can wear and or warp, leading to a pulsation felt in the brake pedal or steering wheel during hard braking. Replacing the front rotors and brake pads will fix the issue in most cases.
  4. Hesitation or Engine Misfire – cleaning the mass air flow sensor helps, but a replacement is most likely needed.
  5. Hesitation on Acceleration – cars with automatic transmissions may experience a hesitation, especially when accelerating. A revised software update is available which usually corrects this issue.
  6. Burning Smell – the valve cover gaskets may on occasion leak oil leading to a burning smell.
  7. Steering Rack & Pinion leak – if leaks are found in the steering rack assembly, it will have to be replaced.
  8. Misfire and or Check Engine Light on – when one ignition coil fails, it’s common for the rest to fail shortly after. You can save on costs by replacing all of them at the same time.
  9. Hesitation or No Start – the ignition coil inside the distributor can fail. Replacing the entire distributor with a genuine Toyota distributor is suggested if this happens.
  10. Sound When Driving Over Bumps – it is not uncommon for the Struts and Bearing Plates to wear after 100,000 miles. You can usually fix this issue by replacing them.

TOYOTA REPAIRS & COSTS: Repairs can be costly, especially if the issue requires us to work on the timing belt and clutch. Most noteworthy is that we help reduce repair costs by prioritizing important repairs that need immediate attention versus those that can wait. We source the best parts for your money and provide the best technicians to work on your vehicle. That’s what makes our prices very competitive. All of our technicians treat each vehicle as if it were there very own, and that’s what makes us stand out from the competition.

TOYOTA PARTS: We use Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts only if they are cost-efficient. And we will source equally durable aftermarket parts if need be.

FAQs about your Toyota:

Owning a vehicle is a major investment for most people and when it comes to repairing them you can count on us. So with maintenance, you want to be extra sure your Toyota goes into a reputable, knowledgeable and reliable auto repair shop. Independent Motors is backed by many years of experience and has specialized expertise to answer the most frequently asked questions about your Toyota. Read on to learn more.

A: Every 3,000 miles for conventional or 5,000 miles for synthetic, keeping a close eye on oil level between changes.

A: Modern day brake rotors tend to warp, sometimes even before the brake pads wear out. Depending on how bad they warp they may require replacing. It is advisable to replace the brake rotors and pads at the same time. If you experience any of these symptoms call us to schedule a brake inspection. We will inspect all your brakes and let you know what condition they’re in and if they need to be replaced, or if it can wait.

A: Typically the fresh air intake vents for your cabin are located directly behind the hood covering in the engine compartment. When oil leaks in the engine compartment the odor is sucked into the vents and blown inside the passenger cabin. When you smell anything unusual inside your vehicle it generally means there is a leak somewhere. Leaking valve cover gaskets are common in Toyotas and can give off an oil burning smell inside your vehicle.
