I'm writting today to let people know I had an enginge warning light come on last weekenf which also included mt VSC and traction light. I took it to Auto zone to have the code read which they do at no charge compared to Toyota which wanted to charge $110 to hook it up on it's computer.
After confirming I had a bad ignition coil I bought a replacement for $85 from Toyota and replaced it myself. The front coils are easy to get at compared to the back. I was fortunate to have my bad on in the front. It took me 2 minuteds to change it, One bolt and one plug. Toyota wanted $300 for the whole job.
That being said my car has much better pick up and doesn't seem to hesitate anymore.
IS it possible that this coil has been defective from day one and now has finally showed up on the computer as this coil worsen.
I'm still test driving the car as I have only got to drive short distances to work and back but itfeels like day and night. I'm also hoping my MPG's get better which has always been a problen with this car.
Unfortunetley The coil is only covered under the 3 year 36,000 waranty.
Feel free to offer any of your thoughts or use the for your own experience's
Thx for the feedback. The car only has 44,000 miles. would it be normal that the plugs and wires need changing at such low mileage? would poor timing / plugs show up as a code in the diagnostic computer?
PS: I also notice that when the car idle is rough and i'm coming to a full stop/traffic light it sometimes feels like the car is about to stall.
I noticed that you mentioned that the noise/vibration was not present when you bought the car. Can you tell me when the noise/vibration developed?
I had a maintenance check done today and they cleaned the throttle and injectors....$200+ but the noise is still there. I can't explain it. Very frustrating!!
But the mechanic told the person who was managing my visit that he heard the noise and suggested the cleaning I just mentioned. It's nice to hear they acknowlewdge it but I think Toyota may be hiding something. I will write a letter to the president and CEO of Toyota.
