New Fortuner 2017 Auto transmission irk

I received a new Fortuner in November 2017 It is a 2.4 auto. I find that the auto transmission sometimes behave strange. When cold the change from 3rd to 4th sounds like as if it search for the gear before it goes into 4th. When hot it never does it. Also when traveling at normal 60km/h in town and slow down for speed bump, the after the speed bump want to accelerate again then the revs go up and as if has not properly geared down and searching for a gear before it takes off again. Has anyone ex...

Diesel consumption

I did a trip to Namibië from 31 March - 7 April 2014 from P.E. to Walvisbay with my 2013 2.5 manuel. We travelled via Uppington and Windhoek to Walvisbay. Only me and my wife and fully loaded at the back with aircandition 80% of the time on and with strong wind from the front from Uppington to Windhoek. We enjoyed the ride a lot as it was my first visit to the southern and coastal part of Namibië. Speed was 120km/h all the way. Tyre pressure all round was 2.2 bar. The whole trip was 4 750 km and...

Chip tuning????

I have fitted the Chipbox chip, plug and play at R3999 on my 2013 2.5. I do not know what the new specs (KW's and Nm's) are but all I can say is that I am driving with a much bigger smile now. I only have it on program 3 at 50% tuning. Safarie Centre and TJM fitment Centre in P.E. stock them at the same price. I am sure that Toyota enigines can handcle the bigger power and torque. Other 2.5 and 3.0l engines from the other makes of SUV's and bakkies deliver hingher specs. I think Toyota is over c...

Manual vs Automatic transmission

I own a manual 2013 2.5 D4D 4x2 - what a lovely car! Sometimes I become lazy while driving in town to constantly ensure that I drive in the right gear. I also do a lot of gravel road traveling. What is the experience among Fortuner owners? What does better if everything is considered, manual or automatic transmission, and why? Nico

D4D Fuel FIlter issues.

Hi Ken Was this the first time in 105 000 km's with filter problems? I want to know what to expect because my Fortuner is still young. I only use Sasol so far. I have heard about filter problems a number of times. Consider having a spare filter in the car because of the unreliable diesel quality. Hope you were sorted out without to much problems.

Best diesel provider

I am a new Fortuner owner. 2013 2.5D. Has done only 1200km. What a lovely car! Has also done ±30km into the Baviaanskloof on Workersday. Deflated Bridgestone Deuler A/T to 1.8bar and the Tuner handled the bad condition gravel road very well. As I am a newcomer to diesel engines I would like experienced "manne" to advise me on what is the best make of 50 ppm diesel to use - Sasol, BP, Shell or Total. Does the different makes influence performance and consumption? Thank you Nico
