The vehicle was then taken to an independent mechanic where the transmission fluid and injectors were replaced. You can rebuild them, but it is a pain in the ass. . The vehicle was able to restart after the initial attempt. At idle and low engine speeds, timing is pulled to enhance a stable idle speed and reduce startup emissions.
Turns out my trans axle mount needed to be replaced. It was in winter 2008 that the engine warning lamp illuminated. Hence, your help to identify the problem will be really appreciated: Please help! Let me know what you find out and good luck. I put on my hazards and managed to get from left lane to shoulder. Most recently, I was informed by a fellow Corolla owner that in 2009-2010 Toyota recalled for engine and engine cooling and headlamps. For the past years, I have had to have the light manually turned off hoping that it would not come on in time for the car to be inspected.
The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 190,000. However the fix dealt with belt tension and matched belts. I'm surprised too the dealer basically just told me it was normal and to try to ignore it. I am a perfect driver. This is driving me nuts, and I can't find a good reliable mechanic to trust.
This is not a safe situation. With my emergency light on, I drove into the street less ¼ mile when I heard sounds like metal or soda cans crushing around in the engine. The dealer felt it too and thought it was the right engine mount which we changed today. I kept trying to start it and no clicking or sound of the car trying to turn over happened. As a result of this accident, I have started having vertigo, for which I have to take medication.
One thing comes to mind is if the compressor is low on freon it may turn on and off continously, this would definitely throw off the idle of the engine so that is something that could be checked out. I have a letter from the legal claims administrator from Toyota motor sales, U. A 2005 Toyota is fuel injected and should have idle compensation, however I am not a Toyota expert, I will transmit this thread through the moderators forum, please stand by, Dr. The mechanic was only able to diagnose a failure connected to the check engine warning light. Insert two 12mm bolts into the holes and, while adding plenty of lubricant, turn the bolts in even amounts until they push the drum off. Eventually my car was towed to the auto shop.
I wanted them to look at it to see if ecm was the problem. The vibration was so bad a few weeks ago before the new mounts that it broke a piece of my heat sheild off. I put on the brakes normally as I thought there was plenty of space to come to a stop however it felt like instead of slowing the car suprisingly sped up and instantly I was smelling gunpowder after a sharp painful jarring smack. Hey whats up guys, i've been having a problem with a rough idle its been going on for a while and i just cant seem to get it properly diagnosed. If it does it all the time, perhaps your dealer can adjust the idle speed. Out of frustration, I gave up on trying to find the cause for these issues.
If so, then should I get it fixed immediately or would it be ok for another few weeks? If you have aftermarket drums without the holes or the screwholes are stripped out, smacking the face of the drum with a dead blow hammer will help free it up, but takes much longer for success. Hard to verify without taking the serpentine belt off, unless the bearing is completely shot in the pulley it will be leaking grease, does not track with the belt or wobbles as the engine is running. If the car is able to move with the new clutch, and it seems to work, I wouldn't say the clutch was put in wrong. It seems this is only a temporary fix to a bigger problem. The car came back from the Toyota service station and the vibrations have more or less completely disappeared! Edited January 22, 2005 by Ti-Jean Naw Jean, almost nothing on, if anything just the defrost at low. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer where they were unable to diagnose the failure.
We noticed an engine vibration. The manufacturer was contacted and a claim was file. There is also a fuse puller tool next to the spare fuses. The Toyota dealers in bronx said cars don't stall because of this problem and I would have to pay to have my car towed there to have it checked. I popped the hood and the engine was shaking. Funny, because both our cars may have been built on the same day or week.
Check them before you make the decision to replace them. The contact stated while driving approximately 1 mph, the engine stalled without warning. The fact that you did say its only when you hit the gas may rule this out, I just fix this same problem on my car and it turned out to be the tires. I looked under the hood and checked the drive belt, which was intact. The contact stated that the vehicle stalled immediately after the engine light came on. This causes them to have excessive movement at higher speeds. The gearing blows to much of a gap between 3-4 and the 4-5 is too close, I am usually used to 4th being 1:1 or pretty close.
The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. It was determined, the vehicle had a defective ecm. I am wondering if its normal, cause its kinda annoying but both the cars ive driven have both done it. The vehicle was not repaired. Finally my car got fixed.
