CH-R sudden engine failure


GLFord

Recommended Posts

Our 2-year old CH-R had a sudden engine failure going up a hill. Afterwards engine started again. It is petrol 2WD. There have been suggestions of wrong or contaminated fuel but we have only ever used 95 or 98 fuel. Dealer says it was a computer glitch. Has anyone else experienced this?

Engine lost power and stopped running. Been now told it's due to carbon build up on the plugs and cylinders from fuel despite only using 95 or 98. Has 60,000 km on the clock. Shouldn't do this so could expect recall.

Don't imagine a recall is on the cards. There are a number of more likely alternatives. carbon buildup could be symptomatic of a number of situations. Notably a rich fuel mixture. A major cause of this is a clogged air filter or intake. Also excessive stop/start driving in traffic or prolonged idling. Could also be caused by a faulty oxygen sensor or similar. Also, don't assume that "higher" grade fuel such as 95/98 is immune from contamination. Did a Toyota dealer check it out?

Hi- I have had this exact same issue with my 2019 CHR petrol 2WD. I have had my engine cleaned a total of 5 times in a period of twelve months - basically every 5000kms. There is undoubtedly an issue with the engine design. My car started having the problem at around 63,000km. Toyota have advised now that the car needs a full engine clean as part of his maintenance on an annual basis - pretty sure if buyers were told this they would have asked why and not bought the vehicle.
