Try sticking saw dust into the transmission to take up the void and act as a lubricant.

GOOD NEWS!!!!
You have an issue that Toyota knows about; there is a programming problem with the ECM in the vehicle, and Toyota has released a Tech Service Bulletin (TC015-07) to cure your problem.
You probably have a DTC code of P-2716...The ECM needs replaced with an updated unit.
PLUS: this repair should be covered for 96 months of use, or up to 80,000 miles. The replacement ECU will be installed totally for free. Call your local Toyota dealer & get an appointment.

SOURCE: Intermittent Rough Idle in gear at stop

well it didn't hurt anything to put the new fluids in. Always good to keep up on those some of the time forgotten routine maintenance. The erratic idle could be caused by a number of things. A leaking intake manifold gasket is one but usually is a steady higher racing idle. Could be clogged injector/s, not sure if you have a throttle body which would house a single injector or a fuel rail which would house 4, one by each cylinder. The other possibilities are any of the sensors that feed the information needed to the brain/on board computer to control the air and fuel to the engine under all conditions for optimal performance, and the emission control system.
Trouble shooting comes with several options. Fortunately most vehicles since the start of the electronic fuel injection systems, that would be everything since the end of the carburetor, comes with some description of an on board diagnostic system for trouble shooting the sensors and such.You can purchase a diagnostic tool, and you will need to purchase a Haynes or Chiltons Manual for your year make and model which will tell you what all of the different codes mean. You can find these at any of the auto part chains such as Auto Zone, Discount Auto Parts, Pep Boys etc. Most of these stores will test your on board diagnostics with their tool free of charge. The Manual never hurts to have in your possession as it covers mostly everything from A to Z for mechanical and electrical repair and troubleshooting. Some vehicles have a way of giving you error msg's by a series of turning the ignition key on and off a certain number of times, and giving a code by a series of an in dash light blinking and pausing, this would also be covered in the manual for your make and model.
Hope this helps,
Matt

SOURCE: sequential transmission is not working right

My son just brought our MR2 with the same 3rd gear crunchy problem to the transmission shop. They said it is a faulty speed sensor which is engaging the clutch at the wrong time. A $200 fix!

Fluid drains back into trans. after sitting a short time


without more information it simply sounds as though your transmission has way too much fluid in it. Normally if you pull the dipstick while cold and the motor is off it will be low on the stick. When running and warmed up (the normal way to check the level) the level will have risen. If you filled it to the line while cold and turned off there is no doubt the transmission is over-full. In that case you don't really want to drive it. I have yet to hear of a manufacturer that didn't warn against such action. Perhaps you could get someone who is knowledgable to drop by and drain your transmission then fill it properly?

Can you tell me why my car won't start unless it is put in gear with the clutch pressed in, also it stalls until the engine is warmed up?


The vehicle is fitted with a clutch switch for safety purposes, that is why the vehicle won't start without pressing the clutch. The cause of the engine stalling might be that the cold start ignition/ timing advance does not work as it is supposed to

Have you checked the transmission fluid if it is low then the transmission will not have enough pressure on your incline, this could also explain your shift feel changing, it could be time for a transmission service, approx €150.00 inc filter and fluid change with a fluid changer not just by draining the pan. wher are you we may know someone in your area.

Suzuki Grand Vitara 2.0 litre petrol. Starts from cold (stood overnight). Twelve minute drive to work - slowing down at lights etc engine stalls constantly. No problem re-starting. Pull into a layby...


Same problem for me. The car would idle at about 2500 when started from cold and about 3 miles on would not idle at all, resulting in the revs dropping off when changing gear or stopping. Also rather jerky in top gear unless thrashed - numerous trips to the garage for air idle valve, injectors etc. but still a problem! Have just found out that GVs are a bit prone to carbon build up in the throttle body - mine was almost blocked - it now feels like a different car.
