Question about 2005 Toyota Land Cruiser

1 Answer

I have a 2005 land cruiser. It has a slow acceleration and begins to vibrate from underneath as the acceleration increases. Can you advise please? Thanks

I feel the vibration on the floor and the vehicle struggles to reach higher speeds. It over-revs if i press down the throttle too quickly. Speed is a slow build up, though it eventually gets there

Do you hear a loud hissing sound when you take off?
Could be the cat converter.

if not that, I've seen CV axles that caused poor take off and vibration.

let me know what you find.

May be low fuel pressure, or, much less likely, a bad fuel filter. Check your air filter, maybe even replace it. Check vacuum lines for leaks. Try a good fuel injection cleaner like Lucas brand. Maybe a gas line dryer (for water mixed with gas). You might have to test or have tested, your fuel injectors. Could be the throttle position sensor. MAP sensor. Choke may be sticking part way closed.

SOURCE: 1991 Toyota land cruiser.. vibration, sputtering??

One of the plug wires may be arching or have a defective spark. It's odd, but I check mine by removing each plug wire one at a time. I'll use stick the end of a screw driver (insulated handle) in the plug wire and check the spark coming in from the coil/coil pack/distributor. Keep in mind, the engine is running and I only do this if there's no shop open or close by. Also the insulated handles are for that unwanted shock. Has he checked for sparks at night with the engine running. Look around and follow the plug wires and around coil/coil pack for any jumping sparks. If any are seen, there's your problem.

Hello swvnpate

Lack of power at speed could be a few items.

1. Air intake system restricted; plugged air filter or intake ducting (seen rags stuck in ducting)

2. Exhaust system restricted; plugged catalytic converter, muffler. Check exhaust back pressure ahead of catalytic converter. Should not be over 2PSI on high idle.

3. Lack of fuel pressure or flow. At high speed your vehicle is using up a lot of fuel. If the pressure is low or fuel lines restricted (fuel filter, pinched line) it may not be able to supply enough.

4. Ignition timing out or timing belt has skipped a tooth.

There are a few of the basic items to check into.
I am surprised that the check engine light is not on with your symptoms.

Thank you for using FixYa.

When i start the engine i have like a white smoke behind me is just huge.i drive a toyota land cruiser 2006 manual gearbox.i don t know what is the problem?is happen in every morning and 4 max 10 sec all...


smoke indicates a weak engine, if it is only at start or beginning few minutes of driving then hopefully it is rings only which is weakened and needs replacement, as per your note it seems only at start and the vibration is it only at cold start and what about if after running a more then 5 miles even you stop the car and start in few second does it still vibrate or no, please let me know

I have a 1997 landcruiser,when driveing at 40 to 50mph a vibration appers when accelerating up to 70mph it gets worse take foot of accelerater goin down hill thers is no noise or vibration


Check your universal joints in the drive shaft. When you remove your foot fromt the accelerator you are no longer applying power to the rear wheels and in turn there is no load on the drive shaft. When you accelerate below 40mph, there isn't enough centrifugal force to cause the driveshaft to wobble, but once you go above 40mph, it begins to show slop.

Another thing to check is your wheel bearings.

My ford escape 2005 start to vibrate shortly after I start driving and then goes away after the speed increases, this does not happen when slowing down.


You could have a worn out U joints, if your only getting the vibration during the acceleration period. Check the condition of the U joint to the drive shaft and tires. Good luck and hope this helps.

Need tire size for 1995 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado


Big tires:

1. Hard time for your drive train (clutch, cv joint, tranny, diff gears) , power steering, brakes
2. Slow acceleration
3. possible fender damage
4. turning radius problem
5. increase body roll and instability
Advantages:
1. good ground clearance
2. softer ride
3. Enhanced off-road ability

tires your planning to buy can fit into your existing rims.
My personal opinion is for you to go for the bigger tires!
