Question about Daihatsu Rocky

1 Answer

We overheated our rocky a while back.Since then we noticed after climbing hills or towing over hills the revs alter.eg before the hills we do 3000rpm @ 90kmh.After the hills it will travel at about 3200-3300rpm at 90kmh.If i drop speed to 80kmh the rpms fluctuate from roughly 2800-3200rpm,revs will go up and down up and down as if the engine is searching or trying to find a medium of to where the rpms should be.If we pull over for 5mins or so,the rocky seems to come right. Our mechanic has checked our motor and doesnt see any sign of damage.Drove 200km to a toyota dealer.He plugged it up to a computer,took the rocky for drive and found nothing.This is annoying especially when they didnt find anything.

Hello. Drive to a transmission shop and tell them what symptoms you are experiencing. Often, the repair is an inexpensive matter of tightening the bands within the transmission which may have stretched a wee bit when the enging over heated. J.

What causes Soltice to rev up and down shift when climbing hill but loose speed


That is the way gears in cars work. When you go up hill, the car needs more gas, so you put your foot down, kick down comes into play and the gearbox chooses one gear lower, for more engine revs and lower speed you get more torque to climb the hill.

Get the car tuned up, you might have failing sensors or ignition problems causing a general loss of power that is needing kick down on hills.

The O/D light on my dash board is on. What does this mean please?


O/D is "Over Drive". This is the recommended transmission setting when driving normally. You should disable O/D when towing a trailer, when climbing hills or when the transmission is "hunting" (shifting back and forth over a very short period of time).

O/D provides maximum fuel efficiency by allowing the transmission to shift to the highest gear, quickly. When O/D is disabled, the transmission may not shift to the highest gear range and it may take longer for the transmission to shift into the highest gear supported.

You can see / hear this by looking at your tachometer (or listening to the engine rev if no tachometer) with the O/D on at any speed. Shutting it off should cause the tachometer to jump up noticeably (or hear the engine rev up) and the car should begin to slow almost immediately. You'll need to step on the gas to maintain the speed when you switched it of. This additional fuel is what you saved when in O/D. The up side of O/D off is more responsive acceleration - but at the cost of fuel efficiency.

I hope this helps :-)

HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU HAVE A BAD TORQUE CONVERTER


The two most common failures in torque converters are excessive slipping due to bad seals and locking problems. If the torque converter is slipping, you will have poor acceleration, but the engine will rev up quickly. It is especially noticeable on hill climbs; engine RPM will be high, but the vehicle does not go as fast as it should, and in severe cases may not be able to climb the hill.

Lockup problems may be harder to detect. At highway speeds, most modern torque converters have a locking mechanism to eliminate slip. Failure to lock may not be noticeable except as a decline in highway fuel mileage. Failure to unlock is readily apparent; the engine may stall on deceleration, or hard braking is required to slow the vehicle, which then stalls.

How to solve overheating automatic gearbox. Warning light comes on after a short hill climb and revs lock and then suddenly release and then go back to normal


I suspect you have almost ruined the transmission. Have you been driving very hard or overloaded? Have the fluid and filter changed. IF you notice a lot of metal fines in the filter, you are in need of a transmission rebuild.

Not sure when overdrive is on or off


Overdrive acts like a final gear. It's easily noticed if it is on or off when cruising at higher speeds, as when operating the switch you will notice the engine revs alternate between higher and lower rev ranges.
When the engine revs drop, then overdrive is on, and when they rise, then it is effectively off.

The overdrive function works just like any other gear in that it reduces the torque from the engine to the wheels, and allows the engine speed to drop. This isn't always beneficial when climbing hills or towing however, or when driving hard, as you may prefer that the gearbox wasn't always changing gear into overdrive, as overdrive reduces the torque from the engine as a means to increase fuel economy and reduce stress. It is for this reason that the overdrive can be disengaged, effectively reducing the number of gears in the gearbox which you have available to you.

So simply put, for most drivers, in most circumstances, they will not need to turn the overdrive off.

In answer to the light on/off, the majority of vehicles have overdrive in the 'OFF' position when the light is on. It's a reminder light (amber) that you likely aren't employing the best fuel saving technique.

What kind of power should I expect to have, I have no point of reference, as I have never owned a diesel rig before, seems to have lackluster power on the hills, I have to really put my foot into it to...


diesel engines have loads of pulling power(towing/loaded)but you need to use the gears to keep the revs at peak torque.1st is a crawler gear(very low ratio).put car in 3rd going down steep hills saves the gearbox overheating.....

CVT problem


Simple answer, no, it will not most likely cause any increased wear to your engine or transmission. Yes, it is normal for the engine to rev while climbing a hill while in cruise control.

The cruise is designed to be used on flat (or semi-flat) stretches of highway at 55mph or higher so you don't have to hold the fuel pedal the whole time and your foot doesn't get tired. The cruise control system will try it's best to keep your vehicle rolling at the set speed, increasing/decreasing the throttle to compensate for changes in engine load.

If you are driving with cruise on, try lightly putting your foot on the pedal and you might notice that the system will actually move the pedal itself. If you are in cruise, and you come up to a large hill, try putting your foot on the pedal and getting it up the hill on your own w/o cruise then resetting cruise once you are off the hill.

Also, cruise is not supposed to be used in moderate/ thick traffic or on country roads with a lot of rolling hills. The cruise control system is a "dumb" system meaning (not that it's pointless) but it will only change the pedal as the speed changes and it has no idea what's coming up next, even while you are already on the hill.

So, it is normal operation of the cruise control to try to compensate for a hill by constantly revving up the engine and letting it fall back down to try to keep moving at the exact same speed you set it for. If this is a bother, you can always use your foot to hold the pedal while climbing the hill normally.

Don't worry, it won't cause any increased wear and tear on your vehicle. I hope this helps. Good luck and don't forget to rate! Thank you!

Rev counter


The revs were reset wrong, get them re adjusted. Go back to same garage and ask for it to be done free, as it was done wrong first time.
