Inlet rattle Yaris t sport

Recommended Posts

Hi my high mileage T sport has developed the dreaded inlet flutter noise, (like a timing chain rattle). Having had it on a previous T sport I think it is the plastic manifold delaminating. On the previous car years ago, I found a thread that advised and told where to put a self tapping screw in the manifold, which cured the problem. Can no longer find thread, Can anyone advise me where to drill. The only advise online is for the Corolla which has a diff manifold. Also I am trying to rejoin the Club, but it keeps saying security not correct.??? Having bought back my beloved Tsport, and spent 
£3,400 on restoration, I would appreciate help in fixing this prob. Cheers. Colin Shurvell. Colinshurvell@googlemail.com

Disappointed not to receive any replies, so took the drill and drilled into no.2 inlet tract. Slight improvement but not cured, so new manifold at £178 + gasket it is. Thats nothing compared to the 4k already spent on my resto. I have had the gearbox and diff rebuilt by a so called specialist, worse than before they started, but the leaking driveshaft seals still leak. After much head scratching, turns out my new JR driveshafts fitted 3 yrs ago when I previously owned the car are 1mm undersized at the entry point. Grrrrr. Had used JR before with no problems on a previous car. This is odd and has been going on for 3yrs, each time MOT advised, slight leak from geartrain, which is why I sold it in the first place. Replaced by a new Ignis which I hated even though it was doing 69mpg. After a year the dealer offered me almost what I had paid so managed to buy back my beloved Yaris. and decided to spend the extra on a restoration. Its not going well. New brakes all round, Discs pads shoes springs, new springs, wheelbearings, belts, waxoiled, they cant do the expensive rear suspension bushes, due to rusty mounts, B---. At least the nice man at Toyota  has been giving me trade discount on parts. Thanks Darren. So anyway, I get it back on Monday, Lets hope the leak is fixed, the new, new clutch dosnt judder,?? and peace and tranquility have been restored, oh and the exhaust blow, only happened since the box was out, bet the manifold is cracked. It has a stainless system, mistake, A pot scourer up the tailpipe helps, has been addressed. Who said life would be easy once I got MY beloved 5dr Tsport back. I have Had 4, now, even had a supercharged £38k mercedes in between, but keep coming back to the increasingly rare 5dr Yaris. Its the easiest car for a very Old Git to live with, despite its age related problems. Cheers  Colin

So anyway. Before any of you go down the new inlet manifold route, (£178 + gasket), get your Pcp valve, checked. My man said it has a ball that sticks, causing the manifold flutter noise, sounds like timing chain rattle. Anyway he soaked it overnight in cleaner, rattle gone. 1/4 hr labour only. Thanks Rik. The fact that the new clutch still judders and there is now a rattle underneath, prob exhaust, is just another 'Ongoing' pain. Cheers  Colin
