Sticking accelerator

Recommended Posts

Hello 

I have just purchased an 07 1.6 tr Auris. with 48,000ks on the clock.

I am generally very happy with the purchase, but the accerator is annoying me .

It seems to hold engine revs briefly  when changing gear with foot off accel. 

Has anyone any idea of the problem?

Look forward to your views

Part of the emissions control - not an issue. You soon get used to it.

My old 1.6 mazda 3 used to blip the throttle a bit every time i wanted to change gears, it made for quite an enjoyable sound, esp at higher rpm shifts.

Mine does that, especially when the engine's cold. It's just the engine management making sure that I've got enough revs for the shift, and in my case it stops when I've warmed up.

Thanks for your replies everyone.

I will see how it goes.

Although just found out there was a recall on Auris's around 2010 to modify/replace  accelerator pedal .

Anyone know the reasons why?

Around a decade ago there was a huge ongoing story in the US media about Toyota cars supposedly mysteriously accelerating on their own. I'm not sure if they was ever a specific technical problem identified as the cause of this, (it was sometimes blamed on silly Americans jamming thick floor mats in the accelerator pedal hinge .. ) but it eventually led to millions of Toyota cars worldwide being recalled for a free pedal replacement. This was perhaps a bit of a kneejerk reaction as I don't remember a single case of a Toyota car in the UK suffering from this problem, but Toyota were basically forced into it by all of the negative press coverage.
