Strange Behavior

Hi,

Now on my second 3 door Rav, a 2005 petrol 2 litre.

This one acts really strange at times.

The dealer has no interest in finding the fault.

What happens is, say I'm in on a level road and don't need any throttle, at any speed.

After a few seconds foot on accelerator maintaining a constant speed, very light or no throttle.

The engine slows and jerks violently until I give more throttle.

I can't make it do this on demand, it does it when it wants to hence problem with dealer.

Any ideas.?

thanks

Howard

Welcome to the club.

Assuming it has the correct iridium plugs, start by cleaning the mass airflow meter with carburettor cleaner then report back.

Good luck!

20 mile report since cleaning as suggested.

Well, that seems to have done it.!

thanks

Have a virtual drink on me.!

Hi,

Yes it's on the back of the Air Filter, If you have a short stubby xhead screwdriver it will come off without disturbing

the Air Filter assy.

I put the thing in a jar of fluid as swished it around a bit, then dried it off with an gentle blast of air.

Good Luck.!

Hi

Managed to remove it with a stubby - before reading the post. The screw head is a lot smaller than you think, almost large jewellers screwdriver size for anyone giving it a go. Mentioned this as you cant see them and have to feel for them.

Waiting for a journey to see if its done the job. Cleaned with carb cleaner - £5 Halfords.

Also, the problem was more prominent with the aircon on for anyone else who may come accross this.

Toyota newport gwent not able to find anything as no fault shown on the computer

    • Toyota statement on Russian local manufacturing and vehicle imports
      Like everyone around the world, Toyota is watching the ongoing developments in Ukraine with great concern for the safety of people of Ukraine and hopes for a safe return to peace as soon as possible

      As a company with operations in Ukraine and Russia, our priority in dealing with this crisis is to ensure the safety of all our team members, retailer staff, and supply chain partners.

      We are also monitoring global developments and will make necessary decisions as required.

      The business status of Toyota’s European operations is as follows:

      Toyota Ukraine has stopped all activities as of 24 February (Toyota Ukraine = sales and after sales operations; 37 retail locations; distributor owned by Sumitomo Corp.)

      Toyota Motor Russia will stop production at its St-Petersburg plant from 4 March and has stopped imports of vehicles, until further notice, due to supply chain disruptions (Toyota Russia = sales and after sales operations; 168 retail locations; and one plant in St Petersburg manufacturing RAV4 and Camry models for the Russian market with exports to Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia)

      Other manufacturing and sales operations in the rest of Europe are not impacted.

      Toyota affiliates in countries bordering Ukraine have already taken concrete actions to support Ukrainian employees and their families, including facilitating the transfer of close family members from Ukraine to other destinations with the provision of accommodation, food, and other support to meet their needs. Further humanitarian support is being planned and will be announced in due course.
