SOURCE: clicking noise, 2004 Toyota 5-speed

Check your CV joints - usually you'll hear them clicking the most when you turn a corner while pressing on the gas, but they can make noise like that while you're driving straight. Given that it's most prominent above 35mph, I'm not sure that this is going to be the issue, but it's worth checking - if it is a CV joint, and it breaks, your car will coast to a stop and you won't be going anywhere except on the back of a flatbed.

SOURCE: 2004 toyota prius hybrid power loss on uphill grades

Since you did not mention that there are any warning lights on at the dash, I must advise you of the following: Prius vehicles are VERY PICKY when it comes to the proper weight of oil. That being said, and if you have the wrong weight oil in it, expect problems. Easy way to check this: Take off the tube going to the throttle body at the front of the engine. Open the throttle plate & look down into the intake...Do you see any oil laying there, in puddles? If so, you def have incorrect oil in the engine. This will NOT det a DTC code, and it WILL give you your condition.

I don't know about hybrids, but on most vechiles, you check power steering fluid with engine running.

Toyota Prius jumps from Drive to Neutral while driving. Anyone else seen this. The transmission controller was replaced, problem still exists. Toyota Shop says they have not seen this.


We had the same issue in our 2008 prius happen last week. Car slipped out of drive after initial 1-second acceleration three times in a row. Powered the car off and on in between incidents. Toyota shop has not been able to re-create after 100 miles of driving over the last few days. They replaced the shift lever and battery (the potential culprits based on scant research), but no one seems 100% confident about it. According to the Toyota shop, the advice given by oneStan above isn't applicable because "the Prius actually has a transaxle that does not have cables or linkage, it has an electronic shifter. Mounts such as engine or transmission very seldom wear out before 150k miles." We are supposed to pick car up tomorrow but feeling anxious about driving our toddlers around in it after what happened. Would very much appreciate any advice. Thank you.

Loss of power


If you can feel power loss, from the first gear specially driving uphill. Yes it is your clutch.
