    2.0 D4D TR AVENSIS 2008
  1. GOOD EVENING, LOOKING FOR ADVICE ON A PROBLEM I HAVE WITH MY 1998 1.3 COROLLA. LATELY IT HAS DEVELOPED A KNOCKING SOUND COMING FROM THE FRONT PASSENGER WHEEL AREA WHEN DRIVING ON THE MOTORWAY. CHECKED TYRE, ALLOY, BRAKE DISC AND CALIPER EVERYTHING IN GOOD CONDITION. SOMETIMES WHEN I TURN LEFT I GET A CRACKING SOUND. ANY SUGGESTIONS??
  2. THANKS FOR ALL REPLIES I GOT FOR THE BLACK SMOKE ISSUE ( 2008 2.0 TR D4D 32,000 MILES). THE PROBLEM GRATUALLY GOT WORST. BLACK SMOKE AND LACK OF POWER WITH MANAGEMENT, TRACTION OFF, VSC INDICATORS ALL LIGHT UP ON THE DASH. CAR WAS DRIVING VERY SLUGGISH. I PHONED TOYOTA DEALER AND THEY TOLD ME TO BRING HER OUT TO THEM. SHE WAS DIAGNOISED AS HAVING A BROKEN EGR VALVE AND MANIFOLD NEEDS CLEANED OUT. ALL WORK COVERED FREE UNDER WARRANTY AND THEY EVEN GAVE HER A WAX AND SHINE. WILL USE ADDITIVE NOW TO HELP KEEP CLEAN. BESIDES ALL THAT HAPPENING SHE`S A GREAT CAR DRIVING AND ACCELERATION WITH EXCELLENT SPEC.
  3. Hi, Regarding my 1998 1.3 s Corolla. Just noticing when i brake i will get a knocking noice from the front passenger side wheel. Car driving sound and steering sound. Any suggestions?
  4. Hello, My avensis 2008 TR gave me trouble within the last week, with lack of power and puff of black smoke. management light on, vsc light and trc lights all on. Took her to toyota dealer and they said she needs a new egr valve and manifold cleaned out 32,000 miles on the clock.They cleaned egr valve until they can fit her in next week. that made a big difference as she drove home with full power. All work covered under warranty. starting to wonder about the D4D engine design.

  6. 2008 2.0 D4D TR AVENSIS STARTING PERFECT, IDLING OK . BUT NOW STARTING TO LOSS POWER AND PRODUCING A BLACK SMOKE WHEN POWER KICKS IN. THINK IT COULD BE EGR VALVE? IF SO IS IT COSTLY TO CLEAN OR REPLACE? MANANGEMENT LIGHT IS CURRENTLY ON AND VSC LIGHT IS ALSO ON ???? ANY HELP BEFORE I GO TO TOYOTA DEALER
  7. HAVE A 1998 1.3 COROLLA GOING WELL IN GENERAL FOR AGE. BUT HAVING TROUBLE IF I GO A SHORT JOURNEY ( SHOP ) MANAGEMENT LIGHT COMES ON AND THE REVS DROP BUT NOT KONKING OUT. IF I TURN ENGINE OFF I TRY TO START AGAIN SHE WILL STRUGGLE TO START. ON A LONGER JOURNEY EVERYTHING OK MANAGEMENT GOES OFF AFTER A MILE OR SO AND DOESN`T COME BACK. ENGINE SOUNDS 100% AND GOOD POWER. I WAS TOLD IT COULD BE THE THROTTLE BODY? ANYONE HAVE ANY INFORMATION ON THIS PROBLEM?????
  8. I`M AN OWNER OF A 2008 AVENSIS TR. GREAT DRIVING CAR. RECENTLY I STARTED TO NOTICE A PUFF OF BLACK SMOKE WHEN TAKING OFF FROM HOME IN 1ST AND 2ND GEAR BUT THEN NO MORE AS YOU GO ON YOUR JOURNEY. PLENTY OF POWER IN HER AND NO BLACK SMOKE WHEN REVVED AT IDLE. DUE A SERVICE NEXT MONTH 32,000 MILES. ALWAYS DROVE PETROL ENGINES TIL NOW.IS THAT JUST NORMAL FOR A DIESEL TO PUFF SOME BLACK SMOKE NOW AND AGAIN???
  9. 1998 1.3 corolla starts to struggle when started, engine management light comes on. but after 4 or 5 mins engine management light goes off and car is 100% running. any suggestions???
  10. RECENTLY PURCHASED BLACK AVENSIS TR WITH 24000 MILES ON THE CLOCK. WELL HAPPY WITH CAR GREAT TO DRIVE, ALOT OF EXTRAS WITH BUILT IN EUROPEAN SAT NAV BEING THE BEST FEATURE. CAR COME WITH FULL SERVICE FROM TOYOTA GARAGE. BUT I WOULD ALWAYS BUY N OIL TO STORE IN MY GARAGE WITH SOME OTHER ACCESSORIES. I WAS TOLD TO USE CASTROL EDGE TURBO DIESEL 0W-30??
