Newbie, Clutch And Water Leak Issues Help Please!
Posted 10 March 2012 - 02:51 AM
Thanks or the pleassant welcome to the forum.
The way my purchase went yesterday not sure this will be appropriate much longer!!
I feel like a complete t*at.
I bought a 97 silver GT yesterday via Ebay. Was drawn to a Toyota never having one before by it's reputation or reliability, lord I feel that's an oxymoron now. I'm wafling.
Basically, I'm not dumb but the car has a 10month MOT, quite a lot of service history, and owned my 2 women. The description stated 'Reliable' car so I didn't test drive it as I wasn't ensured until after I was comitted to buy. Barley 3 miles down the road, doing about 60mph in 5th I started tio get a clutch slip.
I didn't push the car hard but it happened twice more on the way home with some associated burning smell. Had a mechanic look at it today and confirmed clutch going.
Question, I know it's a hydraulic clutch but is there anyway of adjusting it, it's quite mild presently? I read you can adjust the screw under the pedal? Recommend any clutch garages?
I note this topic http://www.toyotaown...howtopic=103134
Secondly, Today I foundthe passenger footwell saturated in water. It was cold and didnt smell of coolant. Would this be heater matrix or displace grommet in bulkhead letting in water?
I trusted this woman when she said it was reliable as I'm honest but feel like a tit now.
Are these motors generally reliable?
Thanks for any info folks,
