Most Common failures


Recommended Posts

Hello again, 

 

First, thanks to the community members that took the time to answer my last post. I’ve been a member of numerous car/truck forums, and this, by far has the most polite members. 
 

Im thinking about a Alphard purchase. The vehicle is a 2004 Alphard Hybrid in very good condition with 180,000km. What I think I would find helpful would be confirming some info with you all. I’m trying to establish a list of what I believe to be the most common failure associated with this vehicles hybrid system. From there, I’d like get the parts # for said parts, determine which part # (if any) interchange with North American released Toyotas, and determine the cost associated. From what I can tell from my research, the most common hybrid component failures are the; 

 

HV inverter w/ converter 

HV Inverter cooling pump 

Rear transaxle motor assembly 

HV battery assembly 


 If anyone reading this thinks there’s something that I should add to the list, please let me know. 
 

Also, I found a site that I think is common with this communities members. I’m having trouble trying to determine which numbers listed are the actual part numbers. Here’s a link to the page listing the inverter. I would’ve thought the part number associated with this would have been G9200-58010, but I don’t think it is. Can someone recommend a better site I should be using part searching for this vehicle, or,  confirm this is the right #.

I don't understand what the problem is. The part number that you're expecting appears in the web page in your link. Please clarify what you think is wrong.

This seems to give the same results as PartSouq. I guess they're using the same database:

I Googled the engine code 2AZ-FXE and found that it was used in the Camry: https://autospruce.com/toyota-2az-fxe-engine/

Hi guys,

 

Please exercise caution here.

 

As far as I know, no Alphards were made in the USA.

 

However, many Toyota engines were/are.

 

Do not assume that the Japanese and American engines (Alabama) are identical, they almost certainly are not.

 

American made engines have suffered issues leading to class action law suits.

As far as I know, that is not true of Japanese made engines.

 

So, spare engine parts (indeed whole engines and ancillaries) etc may be common, but may not !

 

So Brandon,  be careful when buying spares in Canada or the US; as the spare parts issue may spill over into the Battery and Inverter arena.
