    Default Sound from Vitz gear box

    I have bought a 2008 Toyota Vitz two months back.I got original Auction sheet and documents which state total mileage of 49,000 Km.I too have driven it 3000 Km in Pakistan.There is not even a single problem in car except a strange sound from gear box.When I accelerate sometime a strange sound(tak tak tak) comes ,if I press accelerator a little more the sound vanishes.

    A continuous sound like that of a diesel engine comes too but I have heard its normal for CVT transmission.I have not changed transmission oil.
    I am concerned with (tak tak) sound,can anyone here elaborate it?
    Toyota people are asking 4800+2000 for transmission oil.Can anyone guide me to any cheaper place in Islamabad?

    you have not mentioned the fuel you are using - petrol or CNG for your regular run. -
    Buy Toyota ATF (auto transmission fluid) from open market and ask your regular ustad if he can handle the change. You may also need transmission oil filter.

    while ATF & transmission filter is changed also get the all 4 wheel bearings checked. Keep in mind at approx 40,000 ATF fluid & Transmission filter need change under regular maintenance schedule

    vitz has a CVT gear box hence it requires toyota cvt transmission oil the 4liter bottle costs around 4200-4500. and Please do not get it done from a random mechanic go to toyota as the chamber has to be opened to change it.

    friends,

    the sound comes between at a speed of 30km-60km and it mostly come when I decelerate or break speed due to any obstacle on the road and again try to accelerate.
    The sound is not coming when car is run in B or S mode,
    really make me cry

    my friend, you are talking about 2 different sounds.
    1. tak tak is knocking which is very common as the fuel we use in Pak is not upto req std, moreover, vitz engine's manual says it knocks at times so dont get irritated by this....use hi octane mix if u can afford. nothing wrong with the car though.
    2. diesel sound is coming from cvt box...a little bit sound is common, it it is persistent or loud, oil change is recommended. but get it done from toyota and be ready to give in 7-8 k for a complete op.
    good luck. i have an english manual of yourr car, PM me if u req it.
