LC200 Sahara 12 problem after service


Recommended Posts

LC200 Sahara 2012 petrol trouble after service.


Not sure this is the right place. Asking for help as I am new to LandCruiser.


My car has done only 125000kms and gave to Toyota for servicing. It has only been serviced from them. Bought it from the first owner. 


The very next day after servicing it start showing codes under the dash. P2442 mainly. And P0418. 


They fixed it several times after confirming me it is nothing related to servicing. But next day, the codes are back. Now I have been to dealership 4 times since the service. Every time they fix it and replace a part but it is coming back. Third time they replaced the air pump($1600). But the codes appeared the very next day.


Now they are saying there is a new problem and they will bill me for the diagnostic. I don't mind paying them as long as they fix it. 


Is this a common problem in LandCruiser at this age? What would be the best move for me? Should I wait till they fix it or go to another garage? I love my car but I am loosing faith on dealerships. Any chance they mess up the service or other repairs?


I am based in Bendigo, if you know any good mechanics please recommend. Thanks 


Any advice, much appreciated.


Thanks in advance.
