  1. Thanks for reply but radio is on put cd in it plays eject cd the unit shuts off.... strange Update to issue just tried another Avensis with the same system and that too turns off when a cd is ejected.
  2. Hi all i recently changed my t180 avensis for a 2015 previous generation business edtion t27. I have noticed when i eject a cd from the player the unit turns off and needs turning back on. Normally on previous toyotas and other vehicles when a cd is ejected the system would go to the radio. Has anybody else found there vehicles doing this or is it a fault on the unit. Many thanks
  3. From reading the service bulleting, toyota seem to be saying it's the consumption of oil that causes the issues with these engines. So to answer your question if it's not consuming oil then it should not suffer the carbon build up that leads to head gasket failure. On the other hand toyota don't give out engine numbers that are affected only build dates for vehicles fitted with ad engines, the bulleting does not say if all engines will suffer this problem or a certain amount. You could own a vehicle in the time frame that toyota lists and not suffer any problems or you could be unluckily like a lot of us on here are and suffer the oil consumption issue and head gasket problems. It's all down to chance if you want to avoid the problem by a vehicle outside the listed build dates. If your looking at a vehicle in the time frame ask if it's had the engine replaced if not check it's got full history and has long has the vehicle is inside the extended warranty and you are unluckily enough to suffer the problem toyota should replace the engine free of charge.
  4. Does it mean (general conclusion) in danger are the engines with excessive oil consumption but those without oil consumption are safe?Its a common problem with the AD series engines 1ad ftv, 2ad ftv and 2ad fhv (these being 1ad(2.0) 2ad(2.2) . Build date Avensis april 2005 to feb 2009 rav4 july 2005 to december 2008 auris september 2006 to september 2009 and verso april 2005 to november 2008. I've had a new engine 7k ago due to erratic tick over turned out the engine was consuming oil and causing the egr valve to clog up, also the car was in continual regeneration mode. The under cover warranty is for cars aged to 7 years old or 111846 miles with service history. The conditions covered 1. oil consumption worse than 0.5 litres per 621 miles. 2. over heating and head gasket failure due to carbon deposits on the pistons. Toyota also for other out of warranty claims regarding the ad series engines would accept the following as being linked to a oil consumtion issue due to carbon clogging, egr valve, dpnr, 5th injector, egr cooler, blocked manifold. I managed to come across this information from a toyota warranty bulletin. Hope this helps all owners who's car is fitted with a AD series engine.
  5. My t180 did something similar to this i took it back to the garage several times. In the end was the dpf. Had a new engine fitted due to high oil consumption. Turned out old engine had totally clogged up the dpf and it could not regenerate its self correctly. The annoying thing was it took almost 2 weeks to get the problem diagnosed. They kept running tests on all sorts but there was no error codes. I was advised to use the car and see what happens. On way to see family over Christmas the engine light came on with trc off and vsc, had next to no throttle response and the car crawled to a halt. Phoned up AA they came out put the computer on and the dpf was in excess of 90%.
  6. Just to add to the oil consumption issue and head gaskets, My dpf failed. toyota tried to avoid paying for it saying it was a carbon issue. I was lucky to have a copy of the services bulleting. I just asked if a car burnt oil at the rate of 2 litres per 700 miles wont that produce excess carbon. I was put on hold, few minutes later toyota agreed to pay for a new dpf.
  7. I was told by the dealer when my engine was replaced, that the failure was caused by excessive oil consumption leading to excessive carbon build up. The top of the piston would be covered in carbon resulting in that contacting the head leading to shuffling and then failure.
  8. I managed 50ish once a few years ago. Dont know how i managed it tho cos its only manages 36-42mpg on most trips thats having to really try hard tho. Most of the time its mid 30's. Have complained about fuel consumption since 2007 had several ecu updates, new engine and DPF, Egr valve replaced.
  9. I get around 36-42 mpg from my t180. That's on shell fuel with dunlop sport 3000 tires
  10. At last somebody else with same issue has me. My T180 has done it from new its now on 87k and is no worse or better than it was the day i had it. i had the gearbox box cables replaced made a slight improvement but still not cured. Its worse in the cold weather. I have asked at the main dealer every time its been serviced and they are unable to find anything wrong.
  11. its the diesel particle filter it stops all the soot that most diesels produce. what it does is ever 200 miles or so is carries out a regeneration cycle which involves injecting diesel in to the diesel particle filter. I was quoted £1200 for a new dpf which is about the going rate. I work in the motor trade and its not just toyota having dpf isues but VW and that includes all VW group cars audi, skoda, seat etc. Have you checked your oil consumption. If you use oil and you got service history you can have a new engine fitted. Toyota ad series engines have oil consumption problems from 2005 till 2009.
  12. mine t180 did this a couple of years ago new egr valve fitted and problem went away or so i thought but then it started to rev high on tick over. My car had always used coolent from new in the end i needed a new engine due to high oil consumption now i get just the odd puff of smoke which i put down to the d-cat regeneration has it is only every 200 miles or so
  13. Its normal nothing to worry about only time to worry is when it does it when hot with no air con or nothing turned on, my t180 did this and was a blocked 5th injector
  14. hi got car back 2 weeks ago new dpf and some turbo hoses due to them starting to spilt and car is all fine now pulls like a train. The issue i did have was my toyota extended warranty would not pay fot the dpf due to it being blocked with carbon. So i made more calls to toyota gb and they came around to my way of thinking that the carbon was caused by my old engine burning vast amounts of oil.
  15. Had trouble opening pdf so if anyone else has same issue this is a copy of the carbon clogging tech bulletin. Warranty Bulletin For further information please contact Warranty, on 01737 367400.

  16. Car is still in the garage been in there since end of November. had the egr valve cleaned, intake manifold de-coked, took car away still the problem was still there returned car took a technician out with me he then felt the problem. The car then had the turbo reconditioned by turbo Technic's. i then collected the car the problem was still no better. I then returned the car to the garage but due to the Christmas holidays was unable to get the car booked back in, was told has there was no warning lights on i would be ok to drive the car. On my way to the coast Christmas eve the car broke down engine management light VSC and traction control light came on the car would not rev above 2000 revs. The aa came out to me and put there scanner on the car and found fault codes relating to dpf issues. The car is used on motorways and dual carriage ways does very little round town driving. I drive 20000 miles a year at least, so why the dpf should clog up and fail is a mystery to me. I only use shell diesel and the car is serviced by toyota. The garage called me friday to say they will be looking at replacing the DPF when they return to work in the new year. On the whole the car has been a nightmare to live with its broken down 3 times in the last 7 months, been of the road in the garage for 12 weeks at least. Have made phone calls to toyota customer relations regarding the sub standard quality of there products. The dealership has been ace i cannot fault them in anyway. Has for toyota customer relations they are about has much use has a chocolate fire guard. For a car i've owned for 4 years it has been nothing short of a nightmare this last 7 months.
  17. I used Toyota injector cleaner, and shell normal diesel which i've always used. EGR valve, maf sensor all clean. Think its gonna be a trip to the dealers i'm now thinking it could be an injector issue thanks for the advice.
  18. Hi all, my t180 seems to have developed a slight miss fire. The car has done 61k had a new engine at 51k due to high oil consumption, plus new egr valve and 5th injector de-coke. The car has been trouble free for the last few months after being off the road earlier this year for 15 weeks with a high idling problem. Back to the miss fire issue its pulls fine in 1st 2nd and ok in 3rd till around 3000rpm then seems to stutter then gets past 3600rpm and all is ok. I'm well aware that peak bhp is at 3600rpm but the car has never done this in the 4 years i've owned it and the 60k i've drove it. If i change to 4th at 2800rpm no issues even at 70mph in 6th it will still pull without any problems until it gets to 3000rpm it seems to be holding back. The stuttering only happens when under full throttle, the car has a full toyota service history, only been run on shell diesel, i've tried injector cleaner still the car stutters at full throttle in 3rd gear or higher but only for 600 rpms that being 3000-3600ish. Any ideas would be welcome has the only time i can get to the dealers is at weekends but have plans which involve doing about 2500 miles over the next 4 weeks. So hoping is something i can check myself. thanks in advance steve

    Its a common problem with the AD series engines 1ad ftv, 2ad ftv and 2ad fhv (these being 1ad(2.0) 2ad(2.2) .

  21. After 3 weeks at MR T got my car back today they found that the 5th injector was coked up. Anyway the car seems to be back to normal only time will tell. Big thank you to W R davies stafford for there help. Its only really down to there customer service that i'll stick to the toyota brand.
  22. Hi mate yeah filters have been changed was serviced in may at 52000 when engine was replaced thanks. Its getting a joke i've been in touch with toyota customer relations about the problem and they dont seem that helpful. The dealer tho is A1 they are trying there hardest to sort the issue but still no joy. They are now swapping bits from another car to find a cure.
  23. Hi all My 2.2 t180 has a strange fault. It first started about 5 months ago when the car was at running temperature it would idle at 1200rpm the air con is off and heater on cold, has i'm well aware this affects the idle speed. Booked car into local dealer and they found that the engine was consuming oil. 2 litres in about 1000 miles. I had a new engine fitted under the extended warranty on the AD series engine. All seemed fine idle speed was back to 800rpm when at operating temperature and would be 1200 rpm or less when started from cold which is normal. 3000 miles later the operating idle speed starts to creep upto 1200rpm when warm. Another trip to the dealers they play with some connectors idle speed returns to normal, but now the car is down on power no warning lights tho. The dealer keeps the car in for a week talks to toyota technical and replace the ecu that cures idle problem and poor performance. The car is now perfect again for another 2000 miles when it goes into limp mode, VSC, engine light and traction lights come on. I know this to be common with egr problems. Sure enough AA come out and EGR issue the car is recovered to the dealer has it would not rev past 1300rpm. After they have the car for a week they find the new EGR valve that was fitted when the engine was replaced had jammed closed, they replaced that and kept the car a couple of days to make sure it was ok. I collocted the car from the garage did about 7 miles and the idle speed was again at 1200rpm. I drove for a further 20 miles the car was fully warmed up and still it was at 1200rpm. Took car back to garage where it has now been for 2 weeks. Toyota technical and the dealer have been swapping all sorts of data but still are unable to find a cause. So in short When at running temperature the car idles at 1200 rpm if you rev it slightly it drops to 800rpm then slowly picks upto 1200 rpm. There are no air con on, heater is off, or on cold. The car has done 57,0000 miles and full toyota history. I've owned the car for 4 years almost and only use shell diesel. The car is a 2006 2.2 T180. Any help would be welcomed has the dealer and toyota dont seem to know the cause of the problem. Thanks in advance
  24. Mine for the last 3 years or so had idle'd at around 1200 rpm when cold or the heater was up high. Other day i noticed that when the car was up to working temp its idle speed was 1000-1100 rpm. No air con or climate activated. Give the car a rev and the rev's dropped to 800 then slowly reached 1000-1100 rpm. When the car is cold it runs at 800 rpm. I thought it was a temp sensor gone faulty. 3 hours at toyota dealership and tuns out its either a d-cat problem, the car is trying to regenerate all the time. ECU problem. The worst case is a new engine. They said it needed 2 litres of oil it was on the max level last week i check oil once a week. I'm waiting for a call tomorrow to see the case of action. I'm sure the car will get sorted but a new engine at 50k. I've had 3 toyotas a corolla 1.4 needed new engine due to oil consumption. 2004 avensis new engine at 40k oil consumption. Now a 2006 avensis needs a new engine. My dad had a 2001 avensis needed a new engine at 40k. Back so subject tho a healthy t180 when cold will run at 1200 rpm then drop down to 800rpm once up to working temp.
  25. Tyre presaures are all ok on mine, i work in the motor trade had 2 of are tech's take the car out and they still find it hard to get good mpg not just on my t180 but others we have in are workshop. Had egr valve changed a manifold de-coke done 4000 miles ago, still no improvement in mpg. I've managed to get 50 mpg out of 2.0 125bhp d4d's, 45mpg out of 2.2 150 d4d's with out any effort. I know that all people's driving styles are different, and that the 180 is not going to be the best on fuel has with all modern diesels with dpf's. The car is great with brilliant performance, just a bit more mpg has i said in my previous post.
