Hi,

ive got a 2002 1.6vvti corolla t-spirit with 16k miles on the clock,

when i start the engine from cold in the mornings it sounds like a diesel untill the engine warms up, and also around 1k rpm the engine sounds like its moaning(if you know what i mean), above 1k rpm-ish its sounds fine. My graddad has the same car and engine but his is a 2004 model, and his dont make that noise.

Can anyone help :crybaby:

Thanks

if everything seens to be fine once the engine is warm may i suggest you try a decend brand of motor Oil,you did say is out of warranty so is worth a try.

all the toyota dealership's i been in they all use normal Shell Helix nothing special really just a average brand of motor Oil.

i've always notice when i start the car from cold the engine always sound rough but once the engine gets to normal temp it sounds better,for this reason i will play around with other brand of Oil once my warranty run's out i mean the facts are you cant damage your engine trying a different brand of Oil and you be supurise the different it makes when you find a better oil to use.

I was told that was normal...it is the "feature" of the 1.6 engine, that "dieselish" sound when cold...Castrol GTX 5W 30 is the recommended Oil and it is probably the best there is, if they're using Shell Helix in a Toyota workshop then they are perfoming contrary to Toyota specifications... :angry:
