2ZR-FAE 1.8 CVT shudder at low speeds

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, hopefully you can share your experience on this:


When I travel at low speed I notice that the car sort of shudders while maintaining that low speed, if I take my foot off the accelerator the shuddering stops, when I put foot back on to maintain low speed it starts again, but if I put my foot down further, the shudder stops.
Although my car is an automatic (cvt), I would describe the problem as if I was driving a manual car in 4th gear on the motorway, then slowing down to say 30km p/h and keeping it in 4th gear, a manual car would start to shudder which would indicate the driver needs to change to a lower gear.

Then took it to my mechanic who came for a drive with me, he felt the shudder but didn't know what it could be. He just said not to worry about it.

Best to go to another mechanic, someone who knows these cars, preferably Toyota dealer or independent specialist, all of that can be related to the gearbox or engine. 👍
