  1. look for earth straps going to the wings , loosen connections , clean and re tighten .
  2. cool .
  3. so long as the connections are the same , id imagine it would work , its only a pressure sensor and pretty standard across most makes . some sense 2 bar others 3 bar , you'll soon know if its no good .
  4. its only a radiator , any will do , id imagine Toyota will want mortgage money for it tbh .
  5. sealed unit , warm the area gently with a gas blow torch may help by melting some of the grease inside so it moves to a possible worn area . watch out for plastics etc though .
  6. give liverpool victoria a try - you should qualify for the new customers reduction - which is in itself an insurance con , they should all be able to offer competitive prices - new customer or not .
  7. buy from tcb .
  8. this engine is a known oil user - id avoid it and go with the more robust 3sge 2 litre engine. as for timing belt changes , its pretty straight forward to be honest .
  9. - the car is almost identical to the uk spec , so dont always stress trying to buy for an import.
  10. my gen 6 gt4 had a pollen filter in the base of the fan housing ,found behind the glove box ,if you wanna have a poke about . the smell you have is mould/bacteria growing inside the air con system , either use one of the sprays on the market to kill it - ebay £3 ish a tin , or remove the glove box and stand a boiling kettle on the floor with air con on recirculate air for 20 minutes, the steam refreshes the system like nothing else . (it was bought . when i went to school . )
  11. run a self test using my guide - any error codes that pop up will help you make a diagnosis.
  12. if the vibration is through the steering wheel, i'd suspect a sticking brake caliper has warped the brake disc.
  13. turn the tick over up a bit when the engines hot , the screws on the throttle body . 3mm allan key and 8mm nut.
  14. check the egr valve is nice n clean on the inside . if it gets gummed up it can cause blips at certain revs .
