New Hilus cuts power


Recommended Posts

I got a new 2021 Hilux 2.8 diesel.

I noticed power cuts when driving, a similar feeling to say Traction control kicking in when engine cuts power with wheelspin.
It lasts for about one second and then restores. 
It happens with just holding gas pedal in one position while cruising along, or slightly depressing say when start climbing a hill.
This happens at random👿 so can't replicate for the mechanic, perhaps more so when engine cold, can be several times throughout a journey
NO warning light indicators comes on at any stage.

Incidentally, I have a OBD bluetooth yoke that displays things like the engine torque and boost etc, and this also shows the temporary drop in output.

The vehicle passed first service with Toyota without any error report.

Any insight would be much appreciated, many thanks
