Dear Friends

I brought Demio 2001 (LA3WDW) last week.

I noticed a small issue today. After start and move the gear leaver in to D position ( with in 1 min time) , car  looks very lazy to move. if i accelerate hard, it move slowly and that time i saw "HOLD" indicator flashing on dash board. then i switch off  the engine and start it again .all issue was gone and car start running as normal. 

what could be the issue on this please. the previous owner said he change the ATF. do i need to do a valve body service ? 

some other issue i have found as below

1. when the engine is hot , the speed around 60 and then accelerate bit , i can hear spark knock  - detonation sound

2.  previous owner has not changed the T-belt and now car reached 120K mileage. at what mileage i should change the T belt

Please advice


Thank you

1 Use a good quasynthetic ATF yes, it's cheaper tom change atf than to change you transmision.

2.check and replace timig kit.Belt replacement recomended at 5 years 100.000Km
