  1. Experienced a few judder when pull away in 1st gear in the morning when cold, after warm up it was ok. The car had covered 75k miles on original clutch I believe. When replacing the clutch, does anyone have any opinion or experience to whether I need to replace the dmf at the same time? Toyota quoted £1000 just got the clutch, parts and labor.
  2. Could be a broken shock spring. It happened on my previous Yaris (front) and RAV4 (rear). It is the bottom coil tends to corrode where it is subjected to water. It only visible only when the wheel is taken off when I was investigating the squeek noise when it goes over bumps and pulling away slowly. MOT will not even detect it on mine.
  3. The fact that your when you pressed the clutch and the light goes green indicate the clutch switch is ok. So you can eliminate this. See anyone else got anything else to suggest.?
  4. Worth checking your clutch switch. If the switch is faulty or your clutch not pressed all the way down, the engine just crank and won't start as part of the safety feature. I am not 100% saying this is your problem , but it's worth eliminating it.
  5. My old Yaris diesel Dpf was bad at around 40k miles. Got it replaced then blocked again at around 30k miles. Then got rid of the car.
  6. I remember Yaris does have a a battery connection problem built by French. The earth strap bolt (to the chassis) need tightened up and possibly cleaning if rusted. This happened on my nephew's 2005. It was a known problem. Worth a try to eliminate.....

    Patrick, did you get your gearbox sorted?
  8. Get one from a scrapper or eB** for less than £100. Look for a similar mileage on the odometer.
  9. Sorry to hear this but, buying anything require some research. Why Toyota used BMW engine: At the time when Toyota has their main focus on hybrid means they didn't want to invest in diesel. They got their vision right. Spending money on diesel to meet Euro 6 was not worth the investment. I didn't want a BMW engine packaged by a Toyota skin, that's why I opted for an older car. So what ever car you buy, always spend times researching it and read reviews of the problems they have and to look out for.

    I think you car idling behaviour is normal. On my diesel verso, when it's cold, and if i put the fan on, the idling speed would goes up to around 900. But if the engine is warm, the idling speed will remain constant at 800 even I turns fan on.

    Had you measured the battery voltage? Does the voltage fluctuate?
  12. I don't expect the smoke that much coming out like that. I have seen Toyota d4d engine run on a deleted DPF and there is no significant difference to a human eye, i.e no smoke.
  13. When you fit your fog lights, did you need to remove the bumper? My fog light has been broken by stone I suspect. Any instructions in fitting the light is appreciated. Thanks. Perfect

    I am not a mechanic by trade, but a systems designer, and who likes to solve problems. So have good sense of how to diagnose and fix things when they go wrong. (But no one can guarantee 100% that your problem is caused by X, or Y and will be fixed by doing Z). All we can do is apply logical solutions from m your problem description and try if it works without saying go and replace the gearbox.

    My Diesel Yaris 6 speed gear box was the best gear box. When I sold the car, it covered more than 125k miles. The gearbox is like new (with the correct oil!). There was nothing around with the car when I sold it, just wanted a change. The car was sold to a friend and it is now 146k miles. So I expect your Auris should give you similar reliability and durability to the Yaris.
