  1. Hi Seanybuck, No answer to problem. Car is in wife’s hands now who is oblivious to this. I got myself a 2004 2.0 d4d corolla which is way smoother. have you taken your car to a Toyota garage to see what they say?
  2. I have the same issue. When I did find time to dismount the tube I did manage to see that the foam had all gone. Unfortunately, I did not have foam at hand to get the job done properly! When I do, i'll report back.
  3. Hi, I have a similar problema with a toyota corolla 2.0 d4d 66KW. I think the resonance you are hearing at 1400 rpm is coming from the air filter chamber. The plastic tube that feeds air into it has some spongy foam at the tip which enters the air filter chamber. however in my car this foam has all but gone. I still have not replaced it, but when I do i will let know if this has solved the problem.
  4. Hi, I have a Verso-S diesel and have noticed a strong vibration when I put the engine under load under 2000 RPM. This is most noticeable in 4th, 5th and 6th gears. Anybody else notice the same? I notice the vibration through the car seat at the central rear view mirror vibrates to a point that I cannot correctly see through it. Regards, Killian
  5. Hi, so you mean that these engines will idle at such a high rpm when very cold?
  6. Hi, I think I've pinpointed the cause. The tube feeding the air filter that passes underneath the battery is not well secured and will rattle against metallic parts when the engine goes through 1400 rpm and oscillates a bit more.
  7. Thanks for the replies - been away for a long time. Can the reading be corrected?
  8. Hello again, I've noticed a noise coming from after releasing the clutch pedal. It is a like a low frequency sqeak that last for about second. It only appears to occur when i change between 1st and 2nd gears and does not occure all the time. I also thougth it may be coming from the power steering as usually at low speeds is when I'm turning the wheel significantly and the cabin noise is not enough to drown out the squeak.
  9. Dear all, I've recently bought the Corolla After driving for a couple of hours I noticed that the a noise was coming from the air filter housing when the engine would be revving at 1400 RPM. I'll be taking the car into service next week (180,000km service) and so the intermediate solution I've found is to loosen the spring fasteners. Noise has mostly gone. Anybody ever had this type of problem?
  10. Dear all, I've just purchased this car. The fuel capacity is 55 litres (12 gallons imperial). The fuel consumption gage in the centre radio console reads consumption between 5.0 and 5.5 litre/100km (55 to 50 mpg). With this in mind I should be managing about 1000 km (600 miles) on a tank one complete tank. However, the first time I went from topped up to when the light came on I managed 650 km (400 miles). To top up the tank only took in 40 litres, meaning I still had 15 litres left in the tank. I found that odd, as with another toyota I have (2011 Verso-S 1.4 D-4D) when the light comes on it means I have about 5 litres left of fuel. Also, the other odd thing was the actually fuel consumption was higher than that stated by the on board computer, computer read 5.3 litres/100km (53 mpg) whilst the actually consumption is 6.1 litres/100km (46 mpg). Is it normal for the onboard computer to be so far off? In my 2011 verso-s the real consumption and what the computer tells me are essentially identical. In fact with that car I manage between 4.8 and 5.2 litres/100km, meaning 35 litres is good for around 700km. It is a newer car and much light car too.
  11. Dear all, I've recently bought a 2004 corolla - engine specs above. The last couple of weeks have been exceptionally cold here in Portugal, with morning temps dipping bellow 5ºC. I've noticed that under very cold conditions the idling speed upon upon cold engine startup is fairly high, about 1400 RPM. Is this usual? I could not find anything in the manual. Thanks!
  12. Just saying hello - I've been to this forum a few times but now letting all know that we've bought our second toyota. The other is a Verso-S Exclusive 1.4 D-4D.
