Vibration and noise from coldstart (again)

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I bought an used Kluger 2010 a couple of weeks ago. And I noticed a strong vibration and noise when the car starts from coldstart (in the morning or afternoon after a long idle).

I know that some other Kluger owners in this forum also experienced the similar issue. Such as below discussion:

http://au.toyotaownersclub.com/forums/topic/25368-kluger-vibrations/

I would like to know:

  1. Is this really a part of normal operation as explained in the above thread?
  2. Is there a fix for this?
  3. Does the issue have any impact on the engine or the car's lifetime?
  4. For those who had this before, do you still experience this issue till now?

Thanks guys!

Check if the engine oil is near the minimum on the dip stick?

If the vibration somewhere around 1000rpm, I think its one of those things you consider as normal when the engine or transmission is warming up. I have this in my kluger since I bought her. I also noticed this vibration when I test drove 3 other klugers before. 5 years driver her didnt notice vibration getting worst.

Thanks bisdake. For your kluger, is the condition different in winter & summer? I am just thinking it might be worse in winter compared to summer due to colder weather.

It is only when rpm is somewhere 1200 down to 1000 regardless winter or summer.
