2012 Mark 3 Yaris Clunky Gearbox

Recommended Posts

Recently purchased a manual 2012 Toyota Yaris with just under 50000 miles on the clock. However. I have noticed that the gearbox is quite clucky and not too smooth. More to my concern is the reverse gear which too often doesn't want to go into gear. Requires me to release my foot off the clutch once or twice before it goes in. Sometimes it appears to go into reverse gear with the reversing camera appearing, but just pops out into netural. I unsure if this is just a querk of the Yaris as I have read similar occurrences online or of this is a real problem.

Hi,

Chances are the oils never been replaced, you may find doing a service on this should help the cause with your gearchanges. I would go for the Sintofluid FE 75W.

Link below for you.

Hi Jack, thanks for you reply. When I brought the car from Toyota, they stated they did a full service. Like you said it makes sense that it's the oils, so since its under warranty I booked it in again. Thanks again for your response.
