Yaris Diesel Loss Of Power

Recommended Posts

On a couple of occasions My wife's 2006 Yaris diesel has suddenly lost power while driving.The car has kept running and one time there was a bang,lots of smoke and then it was ok.

I have put diesel additive it in and it was ok for approx 4 weeks before it happened again.

I would welcome any advice before I line Mr Toyotas pockets.

cheers.

Hi there, when you said there was a bang then it was ok, was the car stopped, turned off then back on again? Or was it literally fine after this bang?

Have you checked the EGR valve? Fuel filter? Is the Oil level ok? Coolant too?

Hi Adam thanks for the reply.

Just spoke to my mrs and she said that she dropped into 3rd gear and revved it hard,it coughed kicked out plenty of smoke and shot off.

The Oil and coolant levels are all ok and next job is checking the egr valve.Is it an easy job to do this?
