hiya,
got a problem witrh a toyota avensis 2003, its the later 2003 model, 2003 to 2006 model, what it is is you start it up enginemanagment light will be on and it will start ok and rev ok, then after a few seconds it will tick over fine but if you try to give it any throttle what so ever theres just no power there at all and can cut out, i got the elm 327 lead i think it is on the laptop and connected it to the car and it shows a p0093 error code, fuel system heavy leakage, after abit of research got told it was the common rail, so got one from the scrappers from a working engine, then at first it was still the same, so left it ticking over for about 15 minutes and it seemed to be fine, engine light was still on but would rev up no problem, so took it for a little drive and managed about a mile until it cut out, got it started straight away and drove the mile back again with out any problems but the enginer light was still on, so i cleared the code with the laptop and everything seemed fine, driving ok no loss of power , engine light stayed off thought it was fixed, come to it this morning start it up no engine light was on and revved up ok but after about 10 seconds the engine light came on and same problem, no power there what so ever, same error code p0093, still it will tick over ok but you give it throttle and nothing, soem times it will cut out but most of time you can hold your throttle down but revs dont go up at all, theres a load of black smoke coming from the exhaust aswell, think thats everything so was wondering has anyone ever had the p0093 error code and fixed it ? if so how ? thanks

Have you checked the fuel filter? Sounds like the rail pressure is dropping as you are reving it.

Hiya, abit of a update, my mate tried doing some stuff on the car one day and ended up breaking the top of an injector, so had to get another injector so then had to get someone out to recode the injectors with the ecu etc, anyway while he had the computer on he said he had tested all the wiring and volltages to everything and said it was all ok and he seems to think it could be the egr valve, its still getting the same error code of p0093 and same sysmptoms, when the car starts from been cold it will idle great but as soon as you rev the car the engine light will come on and then it will start making a noise from the tappets it sounds like and really start struggling to stay on, but if you turn it off again and start it back up will idle grreat again until its revved up, but ifo you leave it idling until it warms up it will drive great, can reset the fault code and engine light will turn off and stay off, does anyone else think it could be the egr valve sticking as he said more than likely? Thanks
or we have tried soaking it overnight aswell but that dint help anything, thanks
