Misfiring AYGO

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Currently I have a dead 2016 model AYGO.

On Monday the engine had started to misfire. I've had a garage take a look at it and cylinder 2 is at 30psi when it should be at 170psi like cylinders 1 and 3.

The car originally went to Toyota Burrows branch (when it broke down) but didn't tell me I had to pay £90 diagnostic fee... what was their diagnostic? They didn't know! They want £845 just to strip down the engine to find the problem...

I'm hoping if anyone from the South Yorkshire region knows of any specialists in Toyota who aren't Burrows to fix my AYGO...or its looking like to go to the scrap 😕

Thanks

Sounds like either a problem with valves not closing on cylinder 2 or the cylinder head gasket, I don't think there's any way to tell other than removing the head?

There is if you watch the video I posted he will tell you about a leak test that shows if its exhaust intake or gasket

Surely the car is under Warranty.

If it is a UK car, it should be under warranty unless it has exceeded the mileage limit or it was a repaired insurance write off. It is common for franchised dealers regardless of manufacturer, to levy a diagnostic charge for investigations. Usually if the issue is covered under warranty the charge is waived. This enables them to cover their costs if the issue isn't covered under warranty.

Toyota, along with any vehicle manufacturer, won't accept the opinion of a third party garage for warranty claims, and will require any fault covered by the warranty to be diagnosed and repaired within its dealer network.
