Engine Shudders When Started After Standing (is200 Auto)


Recommended Posts


Any thoughts on why my IS200 auto engine may be doing this. Left it in the airport at the weekend for a couple of days and it shuddered/stuttered quite badly (almost not sure if it wanted to keep going kind of thing) when I started it up upon return :blink: . Revved it a little and after about 500 yards had damped down. Not a problem with daily use but have noticed elements of ot recently when car is sitting for a period.

Thanks for feedback

if its only for a while (like less than 10 secs) .. then i'd say its normal. It must have somethin to do with the ECU re-adjusting with drastic changes in temp/moisture. Cos i've had that once or twice when i left my car in a parking lot for an extended period of time (like 5 days). In the above instance, it returned to normal after 10-20 secs and didnt come back.
