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.
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.
