The dealership found nothing on it (as usual). Actually the car is getting better and has less vibration and noise. Another problem started though. I hear a water sloshing noise when I start. It does not happen early in the morning but when I go to work at 8ish, park all day and then when i get out of the parking lot on D, I hear the sloshing sound for like a second and its gone. Sounds like water splashing. I thought it was low on coolant but it is full. I am taking back to dealership this Wednesday to check out. May be air on the coolant line?Something's not right. I have a 2011 S with the same engine with about 1200 miles on it. No vibration when I travel to work, usually pulling about 2200-2500 RPM in 4th gear.
Take that car back and have them check it out. This is not normal.
Good luck and please keep us posted on what happens!
I was keeping an eye on that, I have engine noise, sounds like knocking when then engine is under load, 70% to WOT around 1800 to 2200RPM. Was there any TSB number printed on your invoice? I'm wondering if it applies to 2010 models.Hey Egenesis,
Your vibration problem sounds very similar to the problem I had ... which the dealer fixed. I have a 2009 Corolla 1.8 L w/ auto trans. In case your problem comes back, I copied & pasted my solution below from my previous thread. Maybe it can be of help.
Hallelujah, my problem is fixed. Kudos to my Toyota dealer who didn't just write this off as "they all do that". They acknowledged the vibration and addressed it. They replaced the rear VVT-I gear. (This is the exhaust VVT gear.) When they inspected the car they had found excessive noise in the valve cover area when under load. This translated to the vibration I felt at 2700-2900 RPM. Not only did this repair get rid of the vibration at this RPM. It also completely eliminated the vibration at idle which I have heard attributed to it being a typical 4 cyl. engine. There is now no vibration at idle no matter what load I add to it (AC, electrical, etc.). A $500 repair covered under warranty for $0. Thanks to the pros. :thumbsup:
