2 problems, engine noise and battery problem
By bigmac5 on
2009 Toyota Avalon Limited 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
Over all, good car.
When started in the morning and accelerating up the hill where I live, makes a sound like the old valve lifter lash before hydraulic valve lifters.
2nd problem is the starter would not rotate when first pushing starter button, but did on susequent trys.
Found 1/2 x 2 inch corosion under the cover on the positive post of the battery and cable.
Toyota replaced altenator with rebult one and replaced cable connector.
Similiar problem about 3 weeks later.
Replaced termial connector again. 3 weeks later now and begining to corrode again.
keyless (don't have to pull the key outof my pocket to enter and start.)
engine noise, wind noise.
Also the memory seats adjust the outside mirrows, why not the interior mirror?
It already has cables running to it, why not a couple gimbles to adjust it for each driver?
I know it is a safety thing, but the cruise control disconnects even when the windshield wipers even start intermittently.
I hate that.
