Engine

Significant Problems A common problem on this vehicle is that the 1MZ engine is known to sludge up if the normal maintenance schedule is followed for oil changes. If the oil is changed at 3,000 to 4,000 miles this condition does not occur. When this condition happens the engine burns oil and if the oil level is not corrected it will cause severe engine damage. Occasional problems on this vehicle are failures of the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) Valve and the Fuel Pressure Regulator. Failure of the Fuel Pressure Regulator may prevent the vehicle from starting. The cost to repair the engine is between $4,000 and $8,000 dollars for parts and labor. The cost to repair the EGR Valve is estimated at $65.00 for labor. The cost to repair the Fuel Pressure Regulator is estimated at $95.88 for parts and $32.50 for labor. All prices are estimates based on $65 per flat rate hour and do not include diagnostic time or any applicable sales tax.
