Sr180 Juddering In 5Th & 6Th Gear

CaseyB T180

Recommended Posts

Hi guys.

As i new sr180 owner i thought i would join the forum and say hi!

Ive had my auris for approx 2 months (07 Reg, 70k miles)

Any help here would be greatly appreciated....

At least once a day between 70 - 80 mph and between 1500 - 2000 rpm my car starts to judder as if its getting starved of fuel.

This happens in 5th or 6th gear. I put my foot flat to the floor to try and punch through it but it just sits there rattling for 10 - 15 seconds then it clears itself.

If i change down to 4th i can usually accelerate through it.

Sorry for the scattered explanation :)

I tried to explain to my local toyota garage but they said their techs arent allowed to go above 70mph??

Hi and welcome to this very very helpful club :-)

You will find that 5th and especially 6th gear are for cruising at higher speeds. The power band I have found with all the torque is between 2 and 3.5K RPM. The car will not pick up that quickly in 6th at 1500 RPM This is because 6th is a very lazy cruising gear.

Hope that helps a bit

This could be down to a dirty fuel filter, but that probably would show hesitation in other gears too. The SR180 should have no problem at all accelerating cleanly from 65-70 mph in top gear ...... mine does this easily.
