|Ratings Key||Minimal Problems||Moderate Problems||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.
The repair cost is between $4,000 and $8,000 dollars for parts and labor. All prices are estimates based on $65 per flat rate hour and do not include diagnostic time or any applicable sales tax.
