Stall Test

This test is to check overall performance of automatic transaxle and engine by measuring stall speed at "D" and "R"
ranges. Be sure to perform this test only when transaxle fluid is at normal operating temperature and its level is
between FULL and LOW marks.
CAUTION
!
• Do not run engine at stall more than 5 seconds continuously, or fluid temperature may rise
excessively high.
• After performing stall test, be sure to leave engine running at idle for longer than 1 minute before
another stall test.
1) Apply parking brake and block wheels.
2) Install tachometer.
3) Start engine with select lever shifted to "P" range.
4) Depress brake pedal fully.
5) Shift select lever to "D" range and depress accelerator pedal fully while watching tachometer. Read engine rpm
quickly when it has become constant (stall speed).
6) Release accelerator pedal immediately after stall speed is checked.
7) In the same way, check stall speed in "R" range.
8) Stall speed should be within the following specification.
Engine stall speed
Standard: 2,200 – 2,600 rpm
