Maintenance must be observed for day to day running:

Blow air cleaner element to keep enough aeration through

Maintain a standard minimum level of fuel in the tank i.e. not run empty tank all time.

Another useful thread I picked recommended use of iridium plugs that have to be changed in time i.e. at below 60,000kms, and use of synthetic engine oil to be changed after about 10,000kms, and keeping an eye on the timing belt.

â??Regular service and quality fuel will make the engine last for long. Attend to it quickly if there are signs of over-heating. Itâ?s a powerful modern engine that is fuel economical. Its problems are with its sensors; Oxygen sensor, fuel pressure sensor, and ignition timing sensor.

Check the sensor attached to the air intake. I changed mine and it stopped the shaking and shutting down

Toyota Vista. Problems associated with this D4 direct injection engine are hard to cure due to bad access behind the intake manifold and plenum chamber. Under the manifold is the fuel pressure rail. On the rhs are located the electric motor driven fuel pressure regulator, to deal with the rangeof fuel requirements to the injectors between closed throttle to full open throttle scenarios. Also on this side, and difficult to remove, is the three pin fuel rail pressure sensor, part number 89458 32010: these two items control the petrol pressure in the fuel rail. If either are faulty, it can cause very lean or very rich mixtures in the cylinders. High pressure can cause injectors to weep fuel in the cylinders when engine off. The fuel seeps past the rings and into the sumpshowing a rise in oil quantity. Conversely, low pressure causes the car to stall on the road while driving.

oil mix with petrol is most associated with the high pressure pump mounted on tope of the cylinder head when the plunger parts are worn out. the other reason is a blocked return pipe.the reason DTC p1128 comes on is that the ecm has cut the power supply to the throttle motor due to some problems and just trying to protect further damage. mostly p1128 is triggered when you twiddle with the adjusting screws of the Throttle body while the engine is on. If you want to adjust the screw do not for get to observe the wording on the scanner on the Fail Safe parameter, if it is showing ON, garanty you the engine will not start.this part is a protection mechanism put in place due to the unintended acceraltions priously encounted by toyota. PLEASE DO NOT FORGET JOHN CAMPEBELL ANALYSIS.

Now I am in the process of putting an old and reliable engine into the body, there are some changes I am making on the engine mountings etc etc. I would rather drive an old and simple engine than keep on stalling with a modern engine.

The D4 is one of the strongest engines toyota has ever made.if it goes off in motion,then it has the carbon in the inlet manfort.nicely remove the manford and clean the manford properly and change the plugs(denso plugs are the best I have seen so far)the u will see how good it will peform.

I have been with vistar ardeo d4 3s engine since 2011,it just started cutting off at humps and junctions,if you remove your foot off the fuel paddle .if you jump-start when your battery has lost and on taking off the leads there is a short circuit then the driver-injector blows off it will just be cranking without firing,once you squint petrol in the manfold it fires, you change the driver injector then problem solved. there is only mechanic that understands vistar...mr manase in mazabuka zambia central africa .phone me 0974071252,0955526444
