Frequent problems

Engine Toyota 2TRLike its predecessor, the Toyota 2TR engine is extremely reliable and stable. The only weak point is the crankshaft front oil seal (especially on models before 2008). Periodically, it leaks. It needs to be replaced with a more modern copy. It happens that engines begin to vibrate in cold weather. The reason lies in the automatic transmission. It is necessary to replace the oil in it. With constant maintenance, refueling only with high-quality gasoline and filling with the oil recommended by the manufacturer, the durability of the unit can be extended to the maximum possible limit.
