Be on the alert for changes in performance, sounds, and visual tip-offs that indicate service is needed. Some important clues are as follows:

Engine missing, stumbling, or pinging Appreciable loss of power Strange engine noises A leak under the vehicle (however, water dripping from the air conditioning after use is normal.) Change in exhaust sound (This may indicate a dangerous carbon monoxide leak. Drive with the windows open and have the exhaust system checked immediately.) Flat-looking tire; excessive tire squeal when cornering; uneven tire wear Vehicle pulls to one side when driving straight on a level road Strange noises related to suspension movement Loss of brake effectiveness; spongy feeling brake or clutch pedal; pedal almost touches floor; vehicle pulls to one side when braking Engine coolant temperature continually higher than normal

If you notice any of these clues, take your vehicle to your Toyota dealer as soon as possible. It probably needs adjustment or repair.

CAUTION.

Do not continue driving with the vehicle unchecked. It could result in serious vehicle damage and possibly personal injury.
