I recently bought a 2008 Toyota Yaris I love the mileage but on the Freeway at 65-80 mph I get a lot of steering wander. I see there have been issues like the in the Yaris but how do you correct it?


why are you doing 65-80 in probably a 55 zone? slow down. if it is a small car which it probably is, it is not designed for highway speeds especially those

Whilst driving along i lose power, the car will begin to slow then power will resume and the car continues as normal.no warnaing lights will appear and the problem only lasts for a few seconds. no problems...


I presume your car has a petrol engine. Check the spark plugs, their cables and distributer housing if cracked. Check also fuel lines and air filtering system. You may have a clogged fuel filter which is very common if you have never had this replaced.

MISFIRING


Hi PANEL BEATER,

Possible causes for misfires:
  • Emission control System malfunctioning
  • Timing belt installed wrong or incorrectly tensioned
  • Malfunction in secondary ignition system ( check cap, rotor - pull and reseat)
  • Injector problems
  • Vacuum leaks - check hoses, listen for hissing
Get back to me with your findings. We can proceed from there.

Toyota Prius 2001 Warning Light With Exclamation Mark on a car.


I had the same problem. I removed the relays from the fusebox under the bonnet/hood (top left side) and then replaced them. All working OK now. Sometimes I have had a problem when I start the car (especially after rainy day) the petrol engine immediately dies and I can only drive in electric. I have found that if I turn the ignition off and then restart it and immediately pump the accelerator it makes the engine run OK. Hope this helps.
