Toyota HiLux 2007: Rattling Engine

Asked by Henry Mokadsi

My 2007 Toyota Hilux SR5 diesel has the infamous death rattle where my fuel-injectors need to be replaced. The cost for Toyota to do it is $4000. I have always filled my car from BP or Shell. There are so many complaints online, but there is nothing being done by Toyota. How is it that it is not being recalled? Is there someone who can help me with a more current solution to this major problem?

It doesn't matter what brand of fuel you use, the problem in the fuel-injectors. It's a problem with today's common-rail diesel engines and the injectors used in them. The only solution is to replace them. Phone Toyota's customer assistance people (Ph: 1800 869 682) if you want to pursue the problem.
