guys need some help. fielder wagon 1nz-fe. rackling at slow speed. service injectors, trottle body, flush engine and use best oil. when rackling is happening and u rev harder it stops. real frustration. I need HELP.PLEASE ADVISE ME.
i have the same fielder and i hear a light rackle when i start up on mornings or when the car is parked up for a long time. it only sounds for a second or 2 when i make the first tumble. if i switch off and restart after that, it starts normal! so im guessing that when it sits for a long time the lubrication on the timing chain dries off and causes the rackle when its started.
letty, your problem sounds like the timing chain may be slack and thats y it only makes noises when in low rpm. high rpm may increase tension in the chain and therefore u wont hear any noises
Can someone explain how to use the overdrive in a 2006 fielder? I was told to leave it on permanently esp. when on long runs since I will help with the fuel economy, but something about that just don't feel right. When I put it on, the car revs heavier and accelerates quickly..I had to turn it off to control the car at times...seems like I putting alot of strain on the engine and might be burning more gas. What is the proper way to use overdrive..
OVERDRIVE -Overdrive allows the vehicle particularly on essentially flat highway motoring to achieve and maintain speeds at lower RPM.The gearing activated is not really designed to facilitate high load pulling capability as maybe required when climbing hills. -On many newer mod vehicles OVERDRIVE is selected electronically by the vehicle with the driver having no need to 'flick' a switch.The vehicle will sense the driving mode and automatically select the option. -The latter statement would mean that vehicles with this option when put in 'econ mode' will actually do all the selecting themselves.
hi guys, new to the thread. just bought a 2006 fielder wagon, the one with the reverse lights on the tailgate. thing is, the previous owner kept it in storage for 2 yrs. it has a genuine mileage of 49,000kms. the fan belt is missing for some reason. can anyone tell me the number of the belt to purchase? its the 1nzfe engine.
Well breds, I wish you well. You have a very good engine, so treat it well. It is remarkable for the good ole 1NZFE to give you 300,000 kms without issues. For a NZE 141, that car is working shifts !! Haha ! Regards, RR.
Well isolved an ac issue but ended up with another. I replaced the faulty compressor with a compressor off a new model crashed corolla. Now I can't seem to get a belt to work properly. I've chewed up 2 belts in one week.
Experience has demonstrated that there are quality and performance issues associated with the use of cheap parts and although they don't normally impact immediately over time the rate of internal wear etc. causes a higher than normal probability of engine failure. The internal lube systems in the newer generation vehicles exhibit a low tolerance for variations from manufacturer specs. Ask anybody who trying to figure out why engine has failed because of sludge.
I honestly cannot/would not endorse the filter you are interested in since I am not familiar with same. In my domain I am quite happy with the toyota branded consumerables which I market (inclusive of the TRD filters). Actually I find that the price vs quality/performance analyst brings me right back to original toyota filter as the best buy (toyota filter=$80). This applies to stock vehicles. BTW if your brutalise and push your vehicle beyond design capability filters ain't going to help!
Hi Tuners, I have a serious problem with my NZE 142 vehicle. A couple months ago I changed my transmission oil using the ns2 oil (because I could not get the toyota cvt oil anywhere and the mechanic suggested I use the ns2). Well this turned out to be a calamity last week. I now need a new transmission and apparently it is very difficult to source parts for this fielder. I called everywhere and up till now I cant seem to locate it. Any suggestions?
I have a 142 fielder as well, never changed the cvt oil but it's way overdue for a change now. Was going to replace a gallon of fluid (i only got 1 gl of tc toyota fluid) last week but my mech couldn't locate a refilling point. He tried to remove a whitish plastic plug at the top of the unit but it couldn't turn out and he was afraid it broke when he tried prying it out. Could anyone advise on if this was the correct approach used? Also, are there any filters or gaskets to be changed? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
