Turbo Diesel Intercooler

4 posts in this topic


I needed some advice regarding turbo intercoolers. I have a 55 Reg Diesel 2.0L Corolla which needs a new turbo intercooler. I have been checking on various websites and many scrap yards but have found none which are genuine Toyota that will fit my car correctly.

I ended up checking out the ones on Eurocarparts and found them going for around the £200 mark which i am willing to pay. My question is whether buying a aftermarket intercooler will affect my car in any way negatively? I know it is always best to purchase genuine parts but could i get away with fitting an aftermarket one?

Personally i trust the big car parts places like Euro Car Parts to provide good quality pattern parts. I would have no problem at all with buying from them.

See what price toyota charge for a genuine one. In some cases they are really reasonsble with prices being only a couple of ££ different. In other cases there rediculus :rolleyes:

No problem using good pattern parts for items like this :)

Thanks for the help guys. I just came across a seller on Ebay today who sold me a genuine Toyota one for £150 :)

      The idle has dropped to around 450-500rpm on my corolla, i have checked vacuum hoses etc, and will clean the carb this weekend. If that does not work, does anyone know where the mixture/idle screws are located on the carb? 
      Many Thanks

      Evening all,
      I'm a recent Hilux 3.0 D4D owner. Mine's on an 07 plate, love it to bits, but I'm getting a problem that's been talked about here                I was wondering if there's any updated info on this issue? I've read some articles that speak about similar symptoms, but with cracked cylinders as the cause😕! 
      It had been a company motor, which had been mistreated and not serviced as often as it should. So, since buying the truck I've flushed the crank case with 3 oil & oil filter changes at 200 mile intervals with sea foam additive to help clear carbon deposits and then a full service. The knocking got slightly quieter and the engine runs a lot smoother in general, but I'm just concerned something more sinister is lurking!
      Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
      Shep 👍🏻

      I have a 2006 Avensis at 350,000 miles which is experiencing severe lack of power. I have had the turbo checked out by my mechanic thinking this was the cause and a turbo fault has been ruled out as it is in fully working order. The car is not putting out any discolored smoke except the odd puff of black every so often. The car has been well maintained since i purchased it 7 years ago at 70,000miles and as been a very reliable companion. I have had the car serviced since then at every 7000 miles till now and any replacement parts have been bought direct from the dealer and i have only every run shell v power nitro diesel. If anyone has had similar issues please would you help.   
      Any help will be much apreciated

      Hi Guys,
      I'm new to the forum! I've been following things since getting my Auris just over a year ago.  After having a few issues with the starting (still not entirely resolved) I'm looking at getting the 2.0 litre lump remapped or using a tuning box.
      I have a remap company (Black Code) just round the corner from me for ease but I've also been looking at tuning boxes for their resale value after I've had the pleasure of driving with the car. 
      Any recommendations you guys have would be great.
      Many thanks

      Hello all,
      Spotted this beautiful post over in the Avensis forum - clicky, and I was wondering if this was also compatible with the E12 Corolla? I'd really like an aux-in (or even a USB in), but dont especially want to spend the money on a double-din headunit (would hate the look of a single din + empty cubby hole) yet.
      If you need model specifics its a MY06 3dr 1.4 Corolla Colour Collection.
      Thanks in advance!
