Yaris D4D - Registered March 2004, now 27,500 miles on clock.
Has anyone else had a problem with a D4D cutting out?

The problem started about 2000 miles ago. The engine cuts out when starting to accellerate after (for example) descending a hill, turning a corner etc. The engine can be restarted after removing the key from the ignition, then re-inserting it but the engine malfunction light remains lit. After four or five restarts the light stays out.

Also, occasionally the engine seems to 'cough' - same circumstances as above.

It has been back to the dealer three or four times but each time the computer says that the engine 'stalled'. Their best suggestion was to stop using supermarket fuel - now been using 'Shell' for last 1500 miles and problem recurred yesterday.

Also, the problem appears worse when the car is driven gently. (No cracks please - better to drive it gently in current snow and ice!)

I think I'd try a new air/fuel filters and a healthy squirt of Redex diesel inj cleaner before paying Mr T's labour charges.

Thanks for the suggestions.

A letter will be in the post tomorrow to Toyota GB asking for their help.

Just had new air filter at 30k service (Mr T dealer) and been using Redex for past 1500 miles. Dealer has not suggested fuel filter though, but I'll see if the letter provokes any suggestions from Mr T first. The car is still under warranty so labour should not be a problem.

may sound daft..but do you having any other electronic gizmo's on your keyring?
They can interfere with the transponser in the key and activate the immobiliser.

however... this wouldn't make the Eninge management light come on.... well wouldn't think so.

Mr T are taking the mic about not using supermarket fuel. Even if the Engine Management light has extinguished..the error codes will still be in memory..and easily readable.

Woody - It looks like you could be right - no reply yet from Toyota.

The problem has occurred using both keys - the only 'extra' on he key-rings is the alarm control - only active when buttons pressed. (no immobilizer other than standard Toyota one).

I thought that about the Tesco fuel, but used to have a Punto that didn't seem to like a diet of Total!

Hmmm... The only time either of mine have cut out was once when I ran out of diesel.

Speaking of which, if its any consolation my diesels have both run on an almost exclusive diet of Tesco. In fact, I can't remember the last time I filled up with anything else (actually, I can't remember the last time I actually put anything in it!)

Hth and good luck...

At Last!

The dealer has done something. Took it in last Monday and they replaced the Injection Pump. I pick it up tomorrow.

Pity it's taken so long.

Have you drained the fuel pump of water recently?

Ours has an exclusive diet of cacky cheap diesel and runs with a tdi tuning box on max setting with no problems. It gets a squirt of Redex when I remember and I drain the pump twice a year.
