  • Help with D4D intermittent stutter/ miss

    Twice in the last two weeks the engine in my D4D has had a couple of stutters / misses as I've driven through a corner after braking. I'm not sure if diesel engines can have a 'miss' but that's what it feels like This does not feel like the 2nd gear hesitation that has been extensively discussed, it feels and sounds more like fuel starvation.

    I had a look at the fuel system to check for water and it was all clear, and the diesel looked fine. What is strange is the air in the secondary filter. It has a bit of air in the top of the clear bowl and if I tip the filter upside down all the diesel drains completely out of the bowl (it's shown in the photos below).

    I've checked for air leaks and can't find any. Also the car starts fine in the morning so it's not loosing pressure. The problem only occurs when slowing and then accelerating out of a corner.

    So any ideas as to the possible cause?

      Hi Matt, thanks for posting this. I had noticed this a few times and exactly as described in the bulletin. What Krypto describes appears to be at low speed though. I will ask my dealer for the update at the next service. Cheers, Fred

              Thanks for the feedback, I'll take it up with Toyota.

              The only thing I don't understand is why I've only just started having the problem.

                krypto, that is weird as this definately sounds like the 2400rpm hesitation that's been around since 2010 and was fixed on mine with the reflash.

                  This makes a lot of sense. I felt this on our work car and no one else could feel it, started thinking it was just me! Since buying my car I felt it again, will defiantly get the dealer to have a look next service.

                    thanks guys, mine does this, its build March 2012. I will be getting this looked at at the next service which is due soon. It only does it around 110km/hr after a slight downhill, when it req to acc again.

                    Not after braking or slower speed.

                      Pause in shift during corners

                      Hi all. My 2010 gx auto td has a great auto smooth. Shifts well. Real happy but I noticed one strange thing mostly during lower speed turns.
                      As I accelerate through the corner. The box pauses like its going to kick back a gear but then it doesn't and selects the same gear ???. Fair enough I know this can happen some times but its fairly consistent. If I hit the gas harder it will kick back no worries but the fake kick back thing I'm experiencing is happening a lot so I'm interested in what people think. ??????

                      Cheers
