  1. My new IQ.

    Yeah, that's the tonneau cover to hide luggage when the seats are folded down. Did you check the expiry date on the tyre repair sealant. Bet it's out of date (like ours!!).
  2. My new IQ.

    It's worth trying any reputable brand injector cleaner. You add a small amount each time you fill the tank with fuel. I believe the first signs of a blocked EGR is a lack of power when pulling away from rest and hesitation in take-up of engine revs when power is required
  3. My new IQ.

    Slow down !! You only need to add around 1/8 of a bottle with each fill-up....
  4. My new IQ.

    Been protecting our 59 plate 3 cylinder with Redex (with the original EGR valve) and it drives just fine

    Welcome Phil. I'm sure you'll get a lot of pleasure from driving around in your iQ. Had ours for 5 years and still going strong.
  6. Very neat, I do like those; tell us more (where from, how fitted, how much) Dave
  7. Starter

    That is funny, but glad you got it sorted.
  8. TEIN Version Diecast Japanese Model

    Last one (allegedly!!)
  9. An Iq Called Toya

    Looks to be an excellent repair job. Hopefully you'll put it all to the back of your mind and enjoy the car again
  10. Advice please which model?

    Go for the 1.3 engine. We find the 1.0 runs out of puff on inclines...
  11. Performance boost

    Fuel probably not that significant. Make sure you get Redex Fuel System Cleaner
  12. Performance boost

    Try some Redex in the fuel to clean the injectors (and might help with any constriction related to the EGR valve). You will need to add a small amount with each tankful over a number of fill-ups before any noticeable improvement.
  13. IQ Bluetooth System

    Got Toyota Bluetooth on our iQ2 (no sat nav) Fitted by the dealership 4 years ago prior to taking delivery Integrates with standard radio/CD unit
  14. electric window problem

    Yes; very similar to what you describe See here... Elec window sticking; now resolved Hope you get it sorted Dave
  15. Is This Anything To Worry About? (Pic)

    Our IQ2 does short journeys (almost exclusively) and has had a battery replacement due to failed cell(s). I now trickle charge once a week to ensure the battery regularly reaches full charge. I use a CTEK MXS 5.0 and have a plug-in connector permanently attached to the battery for ease of use. Mind you, I would have thought if your car was failing to 'see' the key (because of a compromised battery), that it would also be difficult to start (i.e. the starter motor would struggle to turn the engine...)
