    Default Initial Torque- new corolla 2009 XLi

    I have recently purchased a Corolla XLi. I am facing a problem of initial torque i.e. when ever I am starting from a a zero speed the car tends to switch off unless the RPM is raised high. This happens mostly when the A/C is on. I have tested this tendency by putting the car in the first gear and then releasing the clutch very slowly without pressing the accelerator. The car switches off. I tried this on the older version of corolla and that car did not switch off. Due to this problem the car switches off frequently on signals unless one is careful.

    I reported the problem to the dealer and got it checked on the first post delivery service but they said nothing is wrong. In my view the engine has insufficient initial torque which could be due to thick gearbox oil (Which I still need to check) or Toyota may have install larger 15" wheels rims, without changing the gear box and its ratios. If they can install wrong speed o meters on Altis then perhaps this could also be true.

    I am posting this on the forum to hear others experience also. maybe I am incorrect or maybe only my car is an exception !!??.

    wat is the mininmum rpm required to launch the car from stand still on level road?

    its not a diesel car which will launch without accelerator.if ur previous car did, probably its iddling speed was set to high

    If I am having problems with the initial torque then I it is certain that the car will have problems with CNG. It is obvious. Also the idle rpm of both the cars was correctly set at around 780 and that diesel does have a very high initial torque but the petrols are not so low that they would switch off at the start if the engine is not revedup !!!.

    well in my opinion if every thng is properly working the car should nt switch even without pushing the accelerator if the clutch is slowly released.
    if it does switch off, there shud b some problem.lets wait for experts opinion...

    I wonder why toyota did this..??...How could they make such an ugly looking car...i wonder what they think...??...either they are too bored from their jobs or they dont care.....The best example is the previous Altis Sports...even a Gujranwala ka Ricer could do better...

    I think the problem would get resolved... Go for some other authorized dealer - Indus can't hammer its customers in this way
    Drive slowly and attentively! It's the only solution to avoid severe on-road accidents.
