Hi I have a 2016 ZRE182R Corolla Hatch CVT Auto. I have an issue that is doing my head in but not sure if it is just me or if it is normal. Firstly I've never had a CVT auto before so I realise they are a different to a normal auto. Secondly I'm a bit of a conservative driver so I don't drive it like I stole it. The problem is that I've noticed there is a distinct vibration which seems to be from the front of the car. It seems to occur mostly when the rpm's are in the low range of between 1000-1300 rpm. It is not overly bad it is more like a drone noise sort of like the sound of deep base tone that you get from your stereo (if that makes sense?). In fact as I usually have my car stereo on I thought the noise was coming from my speakers at first but it's not. If I tap on the accelerator pedal to give it a few more rpms it goes away but as soon as the revs lower to around 1000 or just above the droning/vibration continues. Even at around 100km/h at just over 2000 rpm I can hear it. The car has 18,000km on the clock. Now that I am noticing it more it is becoming more annoying and I've even considered trading it in for a manual. Although the good points I have noted with the car is I'm getting 5.8L per 100km which is outstanding. Anyway not having owned a CVT before I am wondering if this is normal or could it even be another problem not related to the CVT? If it is not normal of course I would be worried that it might develop in to something major and costly down the track and would rather get it sorted sooner rather than later. Thanks in advance guys and girls :)
Corolla 2013 asc sport Not in sport mode In drive engine refuses to respond to throttle input usually after turning corner And usually cold weather and mostly wet weather Putting car in neutral the throttle responds Put back in drive not in sport mode Still no response for 30 seconds Some time engine will rev to 6700 But not progression of gears And no power from engine Seems to be throttle by wire problem Also when hard acceleration in wet conditions pulling into moving traffic I can feel traction control activate and same problem occurs giving zero throttle response from the pedal. Note: Dangerous when joining traffic flow Any ideas ???
