Save Big With Remanufactured Toyota Parts

Toyota has a reputation for legendary reliability thanks to the high quality of its vehicles and manufacturing processes. That’s why a remanufactured Toyota part is a great choice when things eventually wear out.

Olathe Toyota stocks a massive range of remanufactured and brand new non-remanufactured OEM parts. All backed by Toyota’s 12-month unlimited mileage warranty. Let's take a look at some of our most popular parts and see how much you can save with remanufactured parts from Olathe Toyota.

Why Remanufactured?

A remanufactured part is different from a refurbished or reconditioned component. It is completely rebuilt and may also include some new OE components. Remanufactured Toyota parts will:

  • Be rebuilt to OEM standards
  • Carry the same warranty as new parts
  • Often cost much less than a new part

All Toyota remanufactured parts come with the same 12-month warranty as non-remanufactured parts. The only real difference is that they often cost less than a new part. You will see that every remanufactured item we sell has a part number ending in ‘84’ - a great way to quickly identify the parts that can help you save big.

Brake Calipers

Brake calipers house the brake pads and brake pistons. They should last for 75,000 miles or more. But they may need replacement earlier depending on how much winter driving you do.

Signs that indicate your brake calipers need replacing:

  • Erratic braking
  • Clunking noises from the braking system
  • Brakes not releasing properly

You have your choice of new or remanufactured parts. Both offer the same high quality and warranty. The remanufactured part is just a lot cheaper.

Take a look at a new Toyota brake caliper for a 2004-2007 Highlander. The remanufactured Toyota brake caliper for the same vehicle is a fraction of the price. Remember, the part numbers for these two calipers is very similar - the only difference is the addition of "84" on the end of the remanufactured caliper's part number.

Engine Control Module (ECM)

The ECM is what controls all the various parts of your engine. If it fails, your car may operate erratically or fail to start at all.

What to watch for if your ECM needs replacing:

  • Erratic performance
  • Engine not starting or stalling
  • Engine light is on

Always run a diagnostic test first to ensure that the ECM is at fault. An ECM can fail due to several factors. Damaged control boards and frayed wiring are two common ones. Repairing them is very difficult and can often cause more issues than it fixes.

It’s best to replace your broken unit with a new part, or a properly remanufactured one from Toyota. Both will work perfectly, but you pay far less for the remanufactured unit.

Steering Rack

The steering rack (or gear assembly) connects the front wheels to your steering wheel. If it fails, you may not be able to control the car effectively.

Indicators that your steering rack needs replacing:

  • Steering feels inaccurate
  • Constant fluid leak from the front of the car (usually red)
  • Difficult to steer at slow speeds
  • Grinding noises when turning a corner

A new rack and pinion steering assembly for a 2005-2011 Toyota Tacoma will cost up to $1,016.99. The same component remanufactured will be $389.59. We stock both and offer a 12-month warranty. The choice is yours.


Your transmission allows your engine to operate effectively at different road speeds. It works just like bicycle gears. Allowing the engine (or your leg muscles) to send the right amount of torque to the road at different engine (or pedaling) revolutions.

Signs that your transmission is failing:

  • Difficulty changing gear
  • Refusing to engage a gear when setting off
  • Grinding noise from beneath the gear lever

In some cases, only a remanufactured part is available for a particular Toyota model. This is the case for the automatic transmission assembly for the 2015-2018 3.5-litre V6 Toyota Camry and Avalon. You still get the same warranty and quality as a new part. The only difference you’ll notice is the massive price savings.

Starter Motor

Your Toyota’s starter motor is what cranks the engine into life. If it fails, you won’t be able to start your car. Typically, when starter motors go bad it's due to one of the electrical components or physical gears failing. There are several signs to watch for.

How to know if your starter motor needs replacing:

  • Clicking or whirring noise when trying to start the car
  • The starter motor keeps running after the engine has started
  • Grinding noise coming from the engine bay when starting
  • The car struggles to start or cranks slowly

Replacing a starter motor can be pricey unless you choose a remanufactured part. A remanufactured starter motor like this one costs far less than a new OEM unit. It will perform like new and you will get the same warranty for both.
