Hello fellow Toyota owners!

I was wondering if you have had an epidemic with the cylinder heads in 2005-2006 model 2.2 d-4d 150hp engines? Because here in Finland we seem to have one, especially with the cars used as Taxi's.

My own Avensis is an old taxi (driven 236tkm ~148mi.), year model 2006, and the cylinder head is done! As I have discussed this issue it became evident that this has been the case with very many same engines. E.g. in my home town all the three Taxi's has been repaired under warranty (three out of three!). The problem is that my car is driven more than 100tkm which is the warranty limit but it seems like this is not affected by the normal warranty as it seems to be a manufacturer fault (apparently it's a casting fault in the cylinder head??).

Let me know if you have found this same problem in UK.

Thanks!

Yes there have been problems with the headgaskets failing, losing coolant and overheating.

Have repaired a few at our place - sometimes requiring brand new cylinder head as they cant be skimmed.

The mileage is 236000km or ~148000 miles. Thank you everybody for the answers, seems like this is indeed a manufacturer fault which should be repaired eventhough the warranty has been expired.

I will take my car to local service tomorrow and I will let you know what happens.

Honestly dont think you will get it done for free, apart from the fact the car has done way over the 60000 warranty mileage the fault isnt mega common so i dont see Toyota paying anything towards it. Let us know how you get on though.

oh the fault is very very mega common and thats by TOYOTA UK OWN ADMISSION , but if your car is over the 60000m/100000k warranty , then you have no chance of getting any financial assistance by toyota.

Sorry but it is NOT a massive problem

To be precise, I have NO sales history for a 2.2 cylinder head and only 2 head gaskets in 12 months

At 148K I cant see Toyota paying for a new head

Kingo :thumbsup:
