They performed a oil consumption test and said it passed. On my 2009 Matrix, I have not noticed this behavior. At this point they can keep the car for all I care I'm sick of the problems it has had. Its a new car bought in march 2008 09 model these past few weeks in the morning when I start the car I hear noise coming from the engine. What people don't know is that the naturally aspirated versions were upgraded and made serious amounts of power.
Non-interference I think, not sure. This improves efficiency by a massive amount without introducing any unnecessary complexity. It improves performance after cold start, but complicates the construction. It is Toyota's first engine with the variable lift intake system. One day he accidentally down shifted when he meant to up-shift and ended up redlining the engine a bit past 7k, normally this isn't a big deal, but this engine is equipped with a rocker arm valve train system. Edited June 26, 2010 by dim3 DaveB - yeah man its the exact problem how long have you had the car? These failures are rare, but for cars which are seeing track usage with semi-slick tyres it is recommended that sump baffles are retrofitted to avoid the oil starvation issues.
This is sad and now they will lose many customers to negative business relations with customers. Since the car is within the powertrain warranty - the dealership should be able to measure the clearance between the bendix and flexplate teeth automatic transaxle or flywheel teeth standard transaxle. The pistons are of aluminium alloy, compact T-shaped in projection, with cutted skirt. Why develop an entirely new engine when you can just adapt the current one for different models. If the sound only happens right when the engine starts to turn over and catch - could be the starter bendix getting stuck or the starter not freewheeling like it should be. I have owned a total of 4 Toyota's before this one and was always impressed by how Toyota built their cars and handled their business. Handling and ride: The Corolla is very easy to drive.
Took the car in for the 135,000 mile service this week. It makes the noise on the first start in the morning. Unsourced material may be challenged and. For 2008, this was an extremely technologically advanced motor for an econobox. On Jan 24th 2018 had another oil change.
The standard cam durations and lifts are shown below. The fuel system got new 12-hole long-nozzle fuel injectors maximized fuel economy and reduced harmful emissions. All engines in this family are equipped with Toyota's technology that optimizes both intake and exhaust valve timing. The contents of the website do not reflect the policy or opinions of Toyota Motor Corporation, Toyota Motor Sales, U. External oil cooler line ruptured and nearly ran the engine dry within a few minutes big mess.
Basic stats These stats are for the engine as it is used by Toyota. The upper valvetrain would be the first to suffer in those cases. They want me to bring it in and leave it over night to replicate the problem. Also, does anyone know what was the issue with oil consumption and if it's been resolved since? Not bad for a Toyota V6! Inspect the belt for signs of slippage - shiny spots, missing ribs, excessive amount of cracking, etc. Talked with the service manager.
It seems to fit the apparent problem. Does the sound go away when the car warms up? Lotus do not use the engine in this specification. That's when the Corolla was born. At which point I decided to record the noise on my phone because I knew the car would not mimick the sound at the dealer. The intake includes a stainless steel header and catalytic converter. Edited June 15, 2010 by dim3 What kind of noise is it? We didn't find any noticeable problems or defects.
In the summer of 2007 first Valvematic versions released. It only seems to do it when the motor has been off for at least a couple of hours. I just wanted to chime in that I have the same issue. Toyota just released two Technical Service Bulletins on the excessive oil consumption issue regarding the following vehicles. The engine was developed by applying low friction technologies. Sad that Toyota hasn't stepped up.
