So I have started to face this issue of sluggish/slow acceleration with my 2ZZ-GE AE80, I changed the fuel pump, spark plugs, cleaned lift solenoid but same issue persisted. I went from 97RON to 92RON fuel for some reason and all of a sudden the car does not hesitate during acceleration, what can be the problem. Car used to have popping sound from exhaust before there was this issue. Note: Water temp goes to 101ish and 2zz knocks due to 92RON while it never knocks or temperature never goes above 100C on 97 RON.
Hi everyone, i picked up a second hand 2008 Kluger KXR FWD with 165k on the clock on Friday. When I road tested it prior to buying I didn’t notice this issue but now that I’ve had a couple of days with it the issue is pretty noticeable. When accelerating while already in motion, predominantly when travelling at 80+kph there is a significant vibration from the front what is felt through the whole body. Normally i would have suspected wheel balance/alignment but the vibration isn’t felt through the steering wheel. Has anyone else experienced this? Is it engine mounts? Something in the drive shafts? trying to get an idea of how many $$$ I’m up for before I head into a mechanic.
I have a 2009 Toyota aurion that I was late on the 75000km service. It was serviced at 80000kms. I took it to ultra tune for its 90,000km on time and they changed the spark plugs and said there was a lot of sludge in the engine. They said they flushed it and put 5w/30 oil in it. The engine light came on and when I accelerate hard it blows a huge cloud of white smoke- so much so cars driving behind me slow down/ stop. Also after a long drive (150+ kms) when I stop for 10 mins for a break then start the car back up and take off again it blows a huge cloud of white smoke for 30 seconds.The engine light keeps coming on and I took it back to ultra tune and they just reset the fault. After the 3rd time of taking it back they said the piston/oil rings are warn and quoted roughly $8k to repair. After speaking to another mechanic I flushed the engine and changed the oil filter and put in 6.1 litres of 15w/40. I drove the car to Melbourne and the car used 2 litres of oil (in 800kms). I took it Toyota Melbourne and they checked over the car and said the fault was that the air bleed control valve wire had broken and they repaired it. They said that would of been causing the smoke.( did not want to elaborate on how). The fault lights didn't come back on on the drive back from Melbourne but when I accelerate from 100km to 110km to over take it was still blowing huge amounts of smoke. And when going up a hill and accelerating it would do the same. Not sure what to do at this stage as Toyota said the car is running fine and ultra tune say it is rooted. Is there anything I can check myself? Already spent $1500 on this problem and haven't got any where!
Can anyone shed some light on what might have happened here? This morning my wife tried to get in the car (2012 Camry Altise). The car would not respond to the unlock button on the key remote - nothing would happen. Eventually after several tries it unlocked. Later when she was in the school parking lot, she took her foot off the accelerator but says it felt like the car continued to accelerate and it jumped the curb and went into the garden bed. She also says she tried to brake and the brakes did nothing. The car is currently at the smash repairs but we are both unsure about driving it after it is repaired. Does anyone know what might have happened?
