About the Highlander/Kluger
The Highlander, also known as the Kluger depending on the market it is sold at, first made its debut over 20 years ago back in 2000.
Since its first release, there have been a total of four generations of the mid-size crossover SUV. The latest version hit the market in 2019.
Competition in the class is becoming more and more competitive. This means the HighLander goes up against some big names like the Kia Sorento, Hyundai Santa Fe, and even the Land Rover Discovery.
Toyota is planning to release a larger variant in the upcoming years, called the Grand Highlander.
The Highlander has its share of fault codes that are commonly logged. One out of the top three is not the most serious, the other two can be much more severe.
Thankfully for HighLander owners, the most commonly searched code is not a very serious one. Fault code P0441 represents an issue with the evaporative emissions control (EVAP) system, most likely as a result of a faulty purge valve. Problems with the charcoal canister can also be the cause.
Another commonly reported code is a bit more of a serious one. Code P0171 indicates that the engine is running too lean. To make things worse, it does not indicate what the potential cause can be.
In the case of HighLander models with V6 engines, if there is also P0174 logged, there is likely an issue upstream of the engine that is throwing off the air-fuel mixture. This can be things like a faulty MAF sensor.
The final code that is commonly searched is the most serious one. P0012 indicates that there is a timing issue with the intake camshaft. This type of issue can lead to a host of performance issues and even damage to the engine.
It is good practice to have this type of issue fixed immediately by a professional.
