SOURCE: 2005 Prius change in MPG after dealer service

What was the weight of the oil that was put into the engine when it was changed? Prius engines are VERY PICKY about the proper weight of the engine oil. Trust me. I see this quite often. The wrong weight oil can do bizzare things, and def lower your mileage. Something you can check: Take off the tube leading to the throttle body, and look down into the intake. Do you see any oil laying in the intake manifold? If so, you DEF have the wrong weight oil. This will NOT set a Check Engine light, either. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 1994 camry oil leak

Before you start removing the oil pan to reseal it, you need to rectify the leak between the oil cooler and the block. Interestingly enough, (in a pinch) the rubber gasket from the (genuine) Toyota oil filter is the same gasket that seals the cooler to the block. Aftermarket filter gaskets will NOT work. Remove the filter, carefully take off the gasket, remove the oil cooler, take off the old rubber gasket, and put the oil filter's gasket onto the cooler, and bolt it all back up. (You should buy this gasket from a dealer) Clean the area real good with cleaner, and THEN check for additional leaks.
Hope this helps, and THNAKS for choosing FixYa. Please feel free to comment back if you need any additional info. The graciousness of a FIxYa rating would be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: Vibration problems in 1kz te

Check calibration. Muffler supports from the front till the back, there should be proper clearance. Is your diesel fuel of proper cetane rating for the engine? Check your belt drive system, is there any part that is excessively draining engine power, power steering pump, air con compressor, alternator or generator? Do these preliminary steps and isolate.

I have a 2002 au falcon v8 ute ,automatic. And it seems to surge when i am driving up hills under acceleration?Other than that it runs beautifully.Any idea what it could be?


Depending on the slope of the hill, it could be kicking in and out of overdrive. This is normal to a point. I would take it out of OD if there were a lot of hills to climb. Better for the transmsission.

It may well be a cold start injector/air meter/sensor at fault.
Don't waste time and money changing things to cure the problem. The cheapest way is to take the car for a diagnostic check. They should be able to identify the fault immediately. You can then save money by rectifying the fault yourself ..

I think I understand the question. These transmissions are known for the 4th speed shaft shearing off the splines. 4th being overdrive. This won't let it shift into overdrive and also no engine breaking when you are coasting. In other words, when you are coasting your engine rpms will drop down to idle speed. So when in 3rd or drive manual, you do have engine breaking and the rpms fall slowly. The transmission is gonna have to come out to be repaired. I hope this helps.

1999 toyota corolla. Car would not shut off went


I assume the car is a petrol! to stop a petrol engine the ignition needs to be shut down! if there is over run happening there are a few reasons for this. There is a problem with ignition mudule! spark plugs coked up! or the cylinders are coked.
If the car is a Diesel model then the reason for this happening is the shut off valve on the fuel pump is at fault.

Hope this helps.

Service engine light flash


It sounds like a transmission electrical problem (possible pressure control solenoid, or trans fluid pressure switch). Unfortunately to be sure you have to have someone scan for stored codes. Although the problem is intermittent there should be "history codes" saved in the PCM. Hope this helps
