Hi All, I've just had the 130k service done on my Hilux by Toyota and to have them tell me the turbo has to be replaced, at a cost to me of $3k. It was making a whistling/siren sound corresponding to the engine revs so I suspected it was a turbo problem but didn't expect that it need replacing this early in the cars life. I bought my Hilux brand new and have serviced with Toyota dealers for every service, even outside of warranty. I'd expect a turbo to last more than just over 4 years and 130k on a Toyota. I'm keen to know if anyone else has had a similar issue with there Hilux turbo failures, whether within or just outside of the warranty period and what was the outcome? Thanks
So this Prius is for sale for quite a damn cheap price. But I'm wondering is it worth the hassle and the problems. I should be going to check the car out this Saturday. So I'm thinking is this a good idea? What are the main problems for this? I called the guy and he told me that it's a hybrid system failure. Can't exactly trust him as he doesn't seem knowledgeable... He did put in 4k into the car for bodywork... 2012 Toyota Prius got a hybrid system failure after a crash what would the problem of this be? Car won't start either. "i imporeted this car from uk i used it as a taxi, i had an accident so they replace the front sterring racks, front wings, pumper, and pianted from silver to white only out side, but now it wont change the gear i think it need to replace suspension so i do not have money, i be happy if any onewill buy it let it take it on his cost to toyota service and they give you an estimation. but i think first need suspenstion to be replaced as it is bend. i am selling it as it is so it is up to you if you can checked here in my place i have jack to rised or you take it to toyota service on your cost. but toyota told me it need the suspension to be replaced by body shop before we work on it and they say it may not be the problem of gear box that is all i know otherwise its great car." "No warranty as it was crashed" Is there much difference between the dealer diagnostic tools compared to ones that ordinary mechanics use? I'm about 85% sure it's a inverter coolant radiator failure...
I have a 2004 Prado Grande with 170,000 on the clock which Ive had since new. The vehicle does not go off road is serviced regularly, and to date has run pretty much faultlessly. Last week as it was started in the morning and put into gear something failed - sound of little men with hammers, beating metal. Seems to be coming from the front of the vehicle? With gearbox in D the noise is there, in N it goes away. So obviously something has broken as the noise is only there when the driveshaft or gearbox is turning. It drives fine and changes gear fine, except for the noise. I had to drive it a few Km to the local auto transmission repair shop. He has a quick look at it and all the drive shafts and universals seem ok. Said the oil in the transmission is looking dark? He will take it apart in the next few days and then give me a quote - I have horrific visions of what he will say and the associated cost? Not a lot of info yet, but anyone got any ideas or thoughts. If required is a new gearbox from a breakers yard an option? Any input more than welcome at this stage. Thanks Peter
