Servicing

SIMILAR MODELS TO TOYOTA HIACE

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: TOYOTA HIACE (2005 ONWARDS)

The HiAce bucked Toyota tradition a little by actually suffering a few design-induced faults.

The most serious ones were all to do with the turbo diesel engine, while the petrol-powered version seems to be much less trouble. By no means a widespread problem, there have been enough piston failures in turbo diesel HiAces to call it a trend.

Those in the trade suspect that it's a piston design problem, but there's also a reasonable rate of injector failures with this engine that could be a contributing factor.

The advice from some workshops is that the injectors should be changed every 100,000km as a precaution.

The life of the fuel injectors will be shortened by a HIAce that is used for heavy towing. But a vehicle that has been filled with dirty fuel can also be a problem as the contaminants won't be tolerated by the small tolerances inherent in the injector design.
