  1. Hope that you manage to sell your Mr2 soon :) Good luck with the baby
  2. Think that you may find that the speedo must be calibrated in MPH and KPH to pass the UK MOT.......This used to be so but not sure if it is still required
  3. Your wait may not be as long as 28 days.......DVLA are getting faster at sending out the V5's :)
  4. White smoke usually means they have elected another Pope! ;) :)
  5. I understand that the petrol engined Yaris does not have a timing belt, but uses a timing chain The water pump is propelled by a grooved fan belt.......not by the timing chain :)
  6. Moved to RAV section
  7. Merry Christmas to all our readers :)
  8. Before i had a VW Golf that I drove 350,000 km without changing oil/filter. And a Peugeut 206 for 200,000 km as well.Strange that they still kept driving without any engine problems whatsoever. I must be a very lucky guy..... Without servicing you are neglecting the running components of your cars to the point of making them dangerous and possibly even unroadworthy........This may invalidate your insurance as most insurance policies require that the car is kept in serviceable condition
  9. I don't think that you are very brave......I think you are foolish to think that you can abuse your engine for six years without changing oil and filter I think that you have been lucky It is just good luck that your engine has not let loose after the abuse you have given it........You should be ashamed to admit such neglect of your car! :(
  10. When you start the car both blue and red lights should illuminate.....This is part of the start up test sequence......After the car is started the blue light may remain on until the engine reaches operating temperature....While the blue light is on it is advisable not to over Rev the engine The red light should only come on again if the engine is overheating....If this happens you should stop and investigate.....but never remove the radiator pressure cap on a hot engine
  11. Lacking basic skills
