Question about Toyota Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a Toyota Vitz (Yaris) from Japan, used it in Tanzania for a year. Now when i put it in Drive..the car doesnt move forward. Engine revvs when i accelerate n the car sluggishly begins to move but

Its a used vehicle but came in pretty neat good condition. It had about 100,000ks on the clock and ive added another 30,000 in the year ive used it. The roads to and from my house on daily commute are very poor. Rough and with potholes. Also there is a steep drain ditch that I have to daily drive over that exerts high pressure on the stabilizer as I need to negotiate that ditch which is on a bend while in an angle other wise if i approach it from the front my front lower bumper touches the ground. Just checked the Driveshaft today but the mechanic said he doesnt see anything wrong with it. What else could it be? Its like the car has no torque moving forward, but once it picks up some momentum, the next gears are all fine. Only the first is a big problem. Once the car started and i left home just fine, was working normally until i approached a patch of bumpy road..as i drove over the smaller bumps, i felt as i something detached in the transmission or driveshafts/propellers.. the car got 'heavy' and engine was revving while car slowed down, as if i put it in neutral gear. then it got to grip again after i shook the steering side to side and it 'clasped' back again! I need some good insight on this!!

Driving manual for Toyota Vitz model 2000 fully automatic


The name "Toyota Vitz" has been used consistently in Japan, with most international markets receiving the same vehicle under the Toyota Yaris name, or formerly as the Toyota Echo in some markets for the first generation.

Then, I just could send this link:

My new toyota yaris dashboard is rattling. help!!!!


This is some work that needs your first hand observations.
You must take the car to a difficult rrough road to simulate the noise/rattle , identily if within the dash or if the vibration is a transfer from the steering section or the suspension.
Make someone drive while you observe, identily and find the rattle point to tighten or replace the part.

I have recently purchased car VITZ , also being sold has by the name of Yaris in Europe. It has automatic gear transmission P - Parking N - Neutral D - Drive R - Reverse But its gear has also abbreviation...


I suspect gears are arranged in the same manner as US-marketed vehicles, PRND21, with B and S representing a mid and low gear. Not sure where you are in the world or what the original market for the VITZ is, but the Yaris is sold in the US as well.

What does "B" & "S" Mean on Vitz Automatic Gear Transmission?


I have recently bought a vitz/ yaris 2006 imported from Japan. Local dealers/ automobile mechanics have told me that S is for Speed i.e. you should ideally shift to this one when you cross 100 kmph. Another view on this ''S'' gear is for sporty driving overall when you can use a surge of fuel for higher acceleration.
'B' as I have been told is for driving in hilly areas on rather steep & continous inclines & declines.
Please do note that this information is from off the streets & cannot be authenticated from any toyota mannual yet. I with Toyota would itself offer english translationso of owner's handbooks online.

Toyota vits 2005 shaking engine


Very possibly you have a bad motor mount. Is the engine missing or running smooth but shaky? If it is missing, then it may be plugs, wires, or injectors, if runs fine but shaky, then you may have a bad motor mount.
