Raven down! Mechanical failure :(
 
Driving home Monday night on the fwy (about 65-70) when the engine sputtered or rev'ed down, check engine light came on and throttle wasn't responsive. Coasted off the fwy, dash looked light up like a xmas tree. On the offramp engine shut down, got off the fwy came to a stop and smoke was everywhere. Oil puddle on the street and tow truck after towing.

Got my baby towed to my dealer (it was about 12:30 at night). Next day dealer advised me that Toyota wanted to look at it. The Toyota rep showed up yesterday (THURS) and confirmed that they are going to be giving me a long block motor replacement. They are going to keep my engine to see what happened. Hopefully I'll have my car back in a week and a half. I really want to know what happened.

Odometer approx: 10,840 miles

They haven't told me what happened except "that something gave out in the engine". I will update with more info when I get some.

sorry to hear man. keep us posted and hopefully everything goes smoothly.


did you get a rental to play with in the meantime?

Did you have any mods done to the intake/motor/etc?

Sigh-on-Rice 10-13-2012 01:12 AM

That's a scary story. I hope thay at least tell you what happened to your engine when they find out the cause.

rasec29 10-13-2012 01:14 AM

they offered a rental by I have my xB to use in the meantime. I had Airaid intake and Perrin Pulley along with other cosmetic mods, those were the 2 mechanical.

Thanks guys, I trust Toyota will get me back or the road soon.

Hang in there Man!

So they are for sure going to replace the engine despite the undampened pulley or is that what you are hoping for?

This. I hope having that pulley doesn't screw you out of an engine. I'm sorry to see this happen and hope everything works out OK.
