Toyota prado losing power

Updated April 07, More than 45, Toyota vehicles have been recalled over concerns a defective fuel pump could increase the risk of crashes, but potentially dodgy parts may not be able to be replaced for months. The fuel pumps on popular Toyota models such as the LandCruiser, Prado, Camry, Corolla and Hilux models manufactured between and could stop working at any time, causing them to stall.

Toyota said the potential safety issue was with a low-pressure fuel pump that was mounted inside the fuel tank of its vehicles. It is fine to continue driving the potentially affected cars but if people experience any issues or have any worries they should contact their dealer or the recall hotline, a Toyota spokesman told the ABC. The ACCC said Toyota would contact owners of vehicles to advise them of the safety recall and will schedule free repairs when parts become available, which is expected to happen from June.

Toyota expects that replacing the fuel pump with a new one would take between 2 and 4 hours but dealers may need to keep cars for longer if they are busy. The ACCC is advising Toyota customers to update their contact details with the company so they can be kept up to date. Topics: automotivebusiness-economics-and-financesafetyaustralia.

Toyota No Power

Top Stories Live: Health Minister hails Easter response but restrictions to remain How well did people abide by travel and gathering rules this Easter weekend?My 03 Avensis hatchback intermittently loses power and slows down after driving it on a motorway for around 20 to 30 minutes and at a speed of around miles an hour.

When this happens, pressing on the accelerator makes no difference whatsoever, that is, the engine does not rev up and the car gradually slows down and then all of a sudden it starts accelerating again. The problem has happened with much less frequency even when I have driven the car only for a short distance on city roads at a speed of miles an hour.

My local Toyota dealership has not been able to detect the cause of this problem. They advised me that their computer does not show anything wrong with the car, and also, their mechanic has driven the car but has not noticed any thing wrong with it. Clearly, being an intermittent problem makes it difficult to detect its cause. If your avensis is the old style 2.

This problem will not necesserily bring any engine management lights on the dashboard. New valves will cost roughly quid plus labour.

The same dealership could not identify anything wrong with the car when I first took it to them a few month ago!!!

Loss of power under hard acceleration

I am not sure whether the Toyao dealership have looked into the possibility of malfunction of suction valves on the supply pump, and how they would react to the suggestion that their original diagnosis might be wrong.

Anyway, what do you suggest I should do now? Shall I opt to replace the turbo charger or go somewhere else for a second opinion? Answer: I have not done this at all.

I don't know where this filter is. I guess I have to learn more about how Avensis works. Can't personally see how the turbo can be intermittently faulty. I would be more inclined towards the fuel supply pump problems highlighted by the first reply. My D4D is doing exactley the same as yours, I'm on a 53 plate and have power loss, intermittently at around rpm etc. Toyota dealer and a local garage say's there's nothing wrong.

Diesel specialist in Bolton can't find a problem even when taking car out with PC connect - as the intermittent fault didn't re-occur. Can I ask if, or how, you managed to solve your problem. If the problem occurs after cruising for some distance but is fine around town when up and down with the gears and speed, I would go with fuel supply problem highlighted in earlier replies.This is a problem which has been ongoing here in Australia with Toyota Australia unwilling to address the problem.

The problem existed in my vehicle whilst it was still under warranty but Toyota Australia have said as usual the sound the problem makes was normal even though it wasn't there from new. Now it is out of warranty they don't want to know anything about it. They said they would review but it has taken over 4 weeks without any contact from Toyota to let me know what stage the review is at or when an answer will be given to me.

Please be reasonable Toyota Australia. The D4D injector problem has scared me to buy a d4d prado or hilux, especialy when there worth bomb to replace and if left, the injector problem can lead to other problems, such as hole put through one of the cylinders,with all these problems I honestly dont know why people buy the turbo diesel over the v6 petrol, the v6 petrol on the other hand is absolute perler of a engine, very reliable and powerfull and I reckon not too bad on fuel,beats the D4D in performance anyday, yeh I know all the pros and cons of both, and yes if you do a lot of outback travel and towing you get a better range, but my old v6 petrol could adverage between 10 and 11L and in the city around 15L and could get between and km out of the two tanks.

I would like to know if it only the earlier D4D diesels having the injector issues or is it the later ones, I think I remember reading they changed them in the last of the series and in the seriesif there not having injector issues with the newer prados I would definetly consider a d4d prado ,but if not I will stick to the 4.

I would recommend anyone looking at a diesel prado consider the 4. I recently purchased a petrol one series after doing some thorough research on the injector issue.

Yes Toyota know its an issue but here in Australia they refuse to acknowlege it. I get excellent results from my pertol model and it tows like a dreram. Plenty of power etc. Service costs are cheaper too and service intervals longer.

They are also slightly quieter inside. Bit of a long standing myth there - servicing a diesel is roughly the same cost in parts as the petrol equivalent.

Oil, Oil Filter, Air filter if needed are all basically the same cost as a petrol if you wander down to your local supercheap and price the parts up. The only additional thing worth looking at is the fuel filter in the engine bay, which should be done every 2nd service. You'd get 10k between services easily enough and if you cared about your petrol engine living a full life you'd service it at 10k too rather than 15k.

The fuel economy argument doesn't mean alot when your talking around town or on the highway - they come out very similar due to the petrol getting great economy on the freeway whilst the diesel gets it around town.

The benefit here with the petrol is that they are alot quicker and more traffic friendly. Of road or loaded up the economy is vastly different. Carrying an extra ton, or doing semi-serious off roading the petrol will absolutely drink the fuel like there's no tomorrow.

The aftermarket is also developing some serious gear lately to really get the diesel moving, with aftermarket turbos and ECUs that go far beyond the whole "fuel pressure" chips of yesterday. Plus the price of injectors has dropped from being around a 4k repair to only about 1.

My 05 model hason the clock, running the factory injectors that when tested about 3 months ago all came up within spec.

Horses for courses, ask yourself what you will be using the vehicle for.

If mostly around town, petrol is fine. If carrying loads or doing a bit of offroading you'd be either very rich, or very stupid, not to consider the diesel. You can post now and register later. If you have an account, sign in now to post with your account.

Recommended Posts.It was sluggish and when it did boost there was a cloud of black smoke out the exhaust. On investigation it was found that the EGR valve was almost blocked with carbon.

The management system was not registering any problem, then or since. The EGR was replaced and the addition of a carbon catch canister. Problem continued irregularly with the car not accelerating because the turbo was not boosting and black smoke continues under acceleration. Every time I see someone it costs more money! It would be worth having the oil pickup in diesel engines inspected before purchase, which can be done by inserting a probe through the oil drain plug.

If it has a build-up of carbon on the pickup the engine is suspect, if there is no carbon the engine is most likely in the clear.

Toyota did have a spate of diesel engine failures some years ago when it was discovered that the fuel injector seals were leaking and letting fuel into the oil stream.

Sludge would build up on the oil pickup and eventually it be blocked and the engine would lose oil pressure. As you say the pickup can be inspected through the oil drain hole, so you should be able to see if there is a problem there.

It is worthwhile changing the injector seals every 45, km. Recent searches How to change a tyre Day trips Sydney Best small car Sorry, there are no cars that match your search. Related articles.Loss Of Power 4. View previous topic :: View next topic. Hi all, a newbie here.

Hopefully someone has some ideas on what might be wrong with my bus! I'm pretty sure that the power is a lot less than it used to be. I'm having to give it more throttle to get the same acceleration as before. I'ts not smokey,has a new fuel filter hoped it would solve the problem Starts perfectly as always. No difference in engine noise or exhaust. Turbo is I believe working as the big black tube running up to the inlet manifold gets "harder" when you rev the engine.

Booked it in to a toy dealer who charged e80 for labour and 80cent for a little piece of vacuum tube! I know there are a lot of vacuum pipes and solenoids.

I've had a look around and can't see anything amiss. Thanks, Mike. Back to top. Google Sponsor. A few possibilities come to mind, and some of the bigger "engineheads" in here will have more, no doubt. Will result in soot build-up in the exhaust system 3 Valve adjustment needed less likely? You do not mention any fault codes. Do your warning-lights work? Hi Nor, thanks for your reply, I've checked a few things since I read your post and I now can tell you that, my exhaust is very very sooty!

I hadn't mentioned the air filter in my original post but that is Ok I will remove it later and take the LC for a test drive just to be sure My dash lights are OK I think.

I just turned on the ignition to check and the yellow engine light works and goes off immediately when the engine starts.

I can't see any auto box light except for the oil temp light. When it lost power last year the yellow engine light came on and was off after toyota fixed the little pipe. Should I possibly remove this and check it out and clean it? The second ,a little one under the inlet manifold with a rod coming out of it. Popped off the gizmo sorry ,dont know what it is called blanked the hole with my finger ,checked the solenoid again and found correct resistance to my finger pressure.

Had a suck and blow through the gizmo and found no resistance either way. I was expecting it to be a one way valve but checked two others further along the line and found them to be the same so maybe this is how they are meant to be?

Regarding IP sensor ,I don't know what that does or where it is? Phew, that's a long winded reply! Please have another think and let me know your thoughts, many thanks for taking the time, Mike. Little update, I now realise that my "gizmos are just mini filters at each elec solenoid and don't do much except allow air to pass and look better than an open pipe! Would it be a good idea to remove each little solenoid and put 12v through them to check if opening and closing?

I also "sucked "on the big diaphragm top of inlet man and noted it held the vacuum and gave a strong "shut closed" sound when I released. I'm sure it has no relevance but also found out that one of my batteries is almost completely "dead".

I mention this just in case it's linked in some way, Over and outM. Second one sounds like the 'inlet shutter'.Up toToyotas on Australian roads including the top-selling HiLux utility have a design flaw that can force the engine to lose power without warning and life-saving safety systems to shut down. The engine then goes into limp mode, turns off stability and traction control, and instructs the driver to go to a Toyota dealer.

The impacts were dramatic with the vehicle slowing suddenly and significantly, including one occasion when on the wrong side of the road overtaking another vehicle. The spokesperson said the safety systems shut down in limp mode to ensure they do not misbehave because of the incorrect data being developed by the MAF.

Stability control contains vehicle slides, while traction control subdues wheelspin. Toyota Australia claims the issue only emerges in extremely dusty conditions, but those are exactly the kinds of conditions many HiLux, Fortuner and Prado owners would find themselves in, as all three vehicles are sold as off-roaders.

Toyota has recommended vehicles used in those conditions have their air filters cleaned more regularly and the MAF be cleaned with compressed air. However, as the design is not yet complete, it is too early to say whether this will be possible. The Toyota HiLux is marketed as a vehicle that can handle rugged terrain.
