The 2ZR engine began production in 2007 to replace the popularly disliked 1ZZ engine and took an intermediate position in the ZR series, between junior 1ZR and older 3ZR. The Toyota 2ZR engine differs from the younger one by the increased crankshaft stroke (from 78.5 mm to 88.3 mm), in the 3ZR, respectively, the crankshaft with a large stroke. In addition, the 2ZR has modifications based on the Atkinson cycle.

— official information
- Excessive consumption of engine oil. This disadvantage is typical for the first releases of the unit. It can be eliminated if W30 analogues are used instead of oils with viscosity W0 – W5 recommended by the manufacturer. Compression can be checked for high mileage.
- The motor began to knock. At medium speed, you need to change the timing chain tensioner, otherwise the drive alternator belt is to blame.
- Negative manifestations at idle speed. Instability of revolutions and other problems often arise due to dirt in the throttle-valve module, as well as a malfunction of its sensor.
The pump also produces troubles after every 50-60 thousand kilometers traveled. It needs to be changed. The thermostat may break down, causing the motor to stop heating to operating temperature. Often the VVTi valve overwhelms – the motor loses power and creeps. Despite all this, the Toyota 2ZR engine turned out to be relatively good. With constant maintenance, it can normally travel more than 250 thousand km.
