    2005 D4D Trip computer

    The Yaris is similar it’s within the radio display. Not sure why but Toyota decided not to have one for the early diesel Yaris models. It only has the average speed not sure why they thought that is beneficial you would think the MPG would be a better option.

    That’s strange not to have one on a Diesel engine Yaris. Yes the later ones do have it we bought a new 06 when they were launched and that did have the full trip computer.

    My daughters orevious Yaris has a trip computer which you could get information of MPG and average speed etc. The Rav we bought her now has the trip button but it only shows the average speed and nothing else. Her previous Yaris was a 2005 model too. Could it be faulty?

    2005 D4D rough idle

    That’s great thank you for your reply. That’s a load off my mind as I was thinking it maybe something drastic 👍🏼

    2005 D4D rough idle

    I bought my daughter a 1.4 D4D Yaris. The car drives and sounds perfect apart from in the morning while the cold temp lights on. It doesn’t misfire but just the ticover sounds a bit rough a bit like a lorry. As you start driving it’s fine. Once the blue light turns off it stops and sounds absolutely fine.

    Strange noise when pulling off

    it’s stopped by itself so. Oil depots been a stone or what gjnorthall suggested. It is booked in for Tuesday just in case it comes back but at the moment it seems fine now

    Strange noise when pulling off

    Had some new discs and pads fitted on the Rav. Pagid for both pads and discs from eurocarparts. Prior to this I never had any noise when pulling off but now the pads and discs have been replaced I get it. Is it possible it’s related? Prior to this the only noise was a slight squeak when braking but that’s all gone now. It’s like a sort of high pitched noise only when pulling off. I’ve had it back at the garage and Sod’s law it did t do it whilst they checked it.

    Toyota Warranty

    I have an extended warranty on our Rav and have just recently extended again. The Rav is now 11 years old and just before Christmas it was driving rubbish and the lights came on check VSC and check 4X4 took it in and they replaced the EGR valve and something else. The cost of the warranty was £510 for 2 years so can’t really grumble. I don’t think they cover brakes though because it’s wear and tear

    P0016 code

    Thank you for your detailed response. I am thinking of now going to Toyota as they will be able to hopefully diagnose it. The garage did reset the engine light originally and as explained earlier it cane back on again. I have been back to them and they’re making excuses and it could be this or that. I’ll update again once I’ve been to Toyota

    P0016 code

    Thank you for your reply. I’m not mechanical minded so not sure of anything on that side. Car has a full history just coming up to 98K now. It was serviced around a month ago and the engine oil looks clean when I checked it yesterday. It doesn’t drive rough at all or Rickover rough in fact the total opposite it’s really smooth in terms of the drive and engine. I’ve not picke up on anything else out of the ordinary. It’s an automatic and the gears change smoothly too. I think it was the crankshaft sensor

    P0016 code

    I recently moved from a diesel to petroleum Rav as I needed an auto. Car drives fine but a few weeks ago the engine and VSC light came on. I went to a local garage and the changed one of the sensors and it was fine till last week. It’s now showing the same code and the sensor was replaced a few days ago. Could there be another fault? The garage say they’ve fitted a new sensor and have shown me the older ones so not sure what’s going on. Thanks in advance

    Rav4 Auto Gearbox Issues.. Ecu Or Gearbox?

    Apologies for late response. If it’s from the same model I can’t see it needing programming to your car
