Auris check engine light

Recommended Posts

I need advice regarding my Toyota Auris 2010 Automatic.

Check engine light comes intermittently, when it comes for few seconds car have problem to pick up speed but then become normal and later light disappears and car runs well.

I got it checked and was told that engine diagnostics have revealed the code indicating Valvematic Valve is faulty and will cost £1438

Any ideas if there is a cheaper solution to this.

Anybody had similar situation?

Buy a part yourself, and install at some local garage. If you get the part yourself, it might cost around 40 or 50% of that 1438.

Maybe get a second opinion and diagnosis somewhere else. Looks like you've used someone who wants to fire the parts cannon and hope for the best - at your expense.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
