Hi guys,

Will need advice here.

Recently i sent my car for repair work and the garage's owner said my car engine mounting got some problems thus throttled badly when he tried to restart my car after leaving there for few days. He said will cause car idle. And ask me to check.

I am wondering shall i go outside workshop or toyota service centre? My car just reached 3 years warranty.

Thank you smile.gif

Mounting problem u will feel the car like going to breakdown "die fire" when the car is in idle especially with gear on. Example when waiting traffic light or traffic jam. I had drove my car with mounting problem for few months and never got really broke down luckily.

Bro, my Vios was running with 3 cylinders also no dieler...engine vibrate violently....but still manage to go to the SC for repairs.

Anyway, before doing any repairs, I always go to the SC to get a clear perspective of what need to be change and the cost plus labour charges...believe it or not...sometimes it is even cheaper than outside cut throat workshops!

But sad to say, you need to chose which toyota SC you go to....some also cut throat...the best is to go to the main UMWSC...not those dealers SC

TS,
I'm kinda confused by wat u said.

Bad/worn mounting: Abnormal vibrations can b felt at idle, or certain road conditions, engine revs, cornering or possibly all of d mentioned. But 1 thing for sure is tat ur engine revs should b quite consistant wit consistant exhaust note.

Bad timing/idling speed/tuning: tis can cause similar amount of vibrations as a bad mount. But d difference is tat d engine revs almost certainly inconsistant or abnormally high/low, with possibly some difference in fc n spark plug wear n tear.

Another thing I dun quite get is throttled badly when he tried to restart my car after leaving there for few days. A mounting is unlikely to go bad just b'coz d car was not started for some time. Tis sounds more like a cold start, tuning, or faulty autochoke problem.

I think best thing is go to a proper SC and describe your problem. Ask them what the reason is. What you describe doesn't sound like bad engine mounting.
