Question about 2006 Toyota ECHO

Engine not starting

I have vitz 2006 with engine start-stop push button. For few days the engine was taking a longer than normal time for starting; some 5-6 seconds long self. Today when I pressed the brake, the green light came ON in the start-stop button but there was no self on pressing the button. Instead the brake pedal got harder and then even the green light did not come ON in subsequent attempts. When I pressed the brake lever harder the green lt did come ON but on pressing it there was no self. The only thing I could figure out abnormal was the Blue cool light on the instrument panel continuously flashing. Pl help.

    The blue light is the one indicating temperature. Its normally ON early morning before the first start. I ve never noticed it flashing before.

    I got a new battery 1 month back and had the starter checked. The guy said batt needs to be changed and that the starter was ok. There must be some programmed logic which is preventing it to engage the IGN.

Hi Buddy.
If you still face such problem, try to disconnect the battery terminal. Keep it dissconnected for a while. Then try it. Also make sure, that the doors are closed properly. It wont start if the door is open,

    You may want to have your battery checked. Its that or a faulty starter button.

    Yeah it sounds like there is an ECU error going on. Is there any other lights that lit up on your cluster when you go to start the car?

I bought my 06 Dodge Charger, used, in 2011. First year no problems, then sometime in 2013, I would get in, turn the key, "reh-reh-reh-reh-reh"... stop, turn key off, wait a few seconds, turn key and...

Its not the plugs. And probably not a sensor.
It could be the fuel pump relay or the pump in the tank.
A sensor going bad would make the check engine light come on with a trouble code. A faulty pump relay or pump would make it take longer to get the fuel pressure up to normal. You could probably make it start by just cranking it longer too.
I would check to see if the pump comes on when it fails to crank.

Engine start-stop push button not working

Please check the spark plug. There might be too much carbon present on it so you need to clean it. If cleaning wont fix it, try replacing it. If you can't do it, just bring it to the nearest auto mechanic.

2007 Gran Vitara engine noise when start

old help, so here i am, filling the hole for next person.

the V6 has no cam belt. it's a chain drive.
how many miles on v6 motor.?
the chain runs 2 times longer than a belt. easy. or more.
the hydraulic adjusters may not, when not doing oil changes on time.
the start up noise is normal (not mine) but the factory TSB covers this, on higher mileage v6,
the engine starts and the chain , or lifters can make noise
until oil pressure reaches normal. (0w oil can be and issue here)
i run 10w40 all year, and mine runs like new, all the time. 100k miles on my block.
if the noise stops , after few seconds the TSB is clear on that.
its normal.
if it makes noise full time, really any engine. its time to stop
not run it and fix it or the damage can cascade it to total engine destruction.
have an ASE mech, diagnose the noise and true source
we have tools to do that , and you dont.
we find the true source and evaluate that.
next time post how long the noise happens, hot and cold
and hot only start ups.?
most shop manuals have a chapter on noise.

here is typical translation of that.

My Toyota Fortuner year 2006,i guess, D4D 3000cc diesel .. I was in a rushed so i drove very fast and suddenly the engine couldn't accelerate but not shutdown stayed at idle and the engine trouble light...

It sounds like it overheated. I am guessing a standard transmission or an automatic that was run in a lower gear?

Diesels cannot rev as high as gasoline engines by their very nature. They act like big compressors and the fuel is ignited by the pressure alone creating enough heat (no spark plugs, and their "glow plugs" are only used for cold starts...when the "wait to start" light is on). When they are over-revved, (two "v"s there, not a "w"), fuel ignites before a valve is fully closed and they will overheat very quickly, and it is possible to have this happen before your coolant gets hot enough to warn you that the engine has overheated.

It sounds like you may not have damaged anything, so you were fortunate to slow down in time before your engine went very much further into a state that is called "preignition" which can cause severe engine damage.

Try taking it a little easier and you should be OK.

After swapping Automatic vitz to manual , check engine light is always on

You might also have to swap the ECM (engine control computer) because most new cars also read readings from the transmission and because you changed it to a manual, it no longer gets readings it needs from the auto transmission. The only way to know is to hook the car up to an ODB II code reader or take the car to the repair shop and let them pull the codes from the computer and tell you if they relate to the automatic transmission. There is no way you can shut off the transmission side of your computer and use the same old computer that you used when you had an automatic transmission.
