WASHINGTON – Toyota Motor Corp said Friday the disruption at the Canadian border from trucking protests had impacted production at its engine plants in West Virginia and Alabama.

“We expect disruptions through the weekend, and we’ll continue to make adjustments as needed,” Toyota said. The largest Japanese automaker said Thursday it would halt production at its Ontario and Kentucky plants through Saturday because of parts shortages tied to the protests.

General Motors, which halted work at a Michigan auto plant on Thursday because of the border issues, said Friday that all plants were running as scheduled.
