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 :)

      Good afternoon
      My first posting on this forum..
      My wife has inherited her fathers' '96 Corolla Sportif 2 door (with 62k miles). It has a drivers door lock which will not unlock, just lock with the key. I have seen videos on YouTube on how to remove the lock to either lubricate or replace, but all the videos I have seen refer to the internal screw-held door handle, and of course the one I have does not have a screw but it is held in place by some unknown force! All other screws, winders etc, have come off very easily but I am stumped by this handle..
      Can anyone give me a clue how I can remove the handle please? I'm sure it has cropped up before but I cannot find it anywhere..
      Thanks in anticipation..

      My son has a Toyota Corolla 02-07 and when he started the engine today, the cd/radio/trip computer display didn't come on and there was a strange whirring noise every few seconds. I thought maybe a fuse had gone, but I checked the CIG 15A fuse, and it was fine. 
      I checked all the views under the bonnet and behind the glove box. All look fine. I noticed that the cigarette lighter works too, so I don't think this is a fuse issue, as the cd player operates off that fuse too.
      Below is the CD player I have. Anyone have any ideas?

      After previously owning a corolla I am looking to purchase a 2005-2006 Corolla SR either a 1.6 petrol or a 2.0 Diesel. 
      What would you recommend and why?
      thanks in advance

      I am going to buy a used car for Private Hire very soon. Following the great response I received online as well as feedback from my friends I decided to go with 'Japanese car' and Toyota hybrid technology seems to fit the bill well.
      Roughly searched Toyota Auris Touring Sports Hybrid at Toyota used approved: www.usedcars.toyota.co.uk , CarGiant: www.cargiant.co.uk 
      and Autotrader: www4.autotrader.co.uk , just to find out that they keep the value well and not many of them are available.
      Any other trusted websites that I missed?
      As a father of two under 5's, I am looking for comfortable, safe and reliable estate/MPV cars with some luggage space. I will be doing long (1k miles) motorways trips few times per year. That's why I am not discarding diesel's completely. I know many would suggest hybrids-only for the private hire city driving but how they are noise/mpg wise when on motorways?
      I am aware that many diesel issues are not existent in hybrids. What are the main mechanical advantages?
      I've been also considering:
      Hyundai i40 estate 1.7 Diesel Ford Galaxy (XL) Toyota Auris Touring Sports 1.8 Hybrid Toyota Verso (7 seater) (Petrol vs Diesel) Toyota Avensis 2.0 Diesel (Manual vs Auto) Toyota Prius+ (7 seater) Hybrid Skoda Octavia 1.6 TDi Skoda Superb 2.0 Diesel  
      The budget is up to £16k, won't spend more at the moment. 
      What car to choose? Positives/ Negatives? Suggestions? Hybrid or diesel? Petrol maybe? Manual or automatic? How many miles max on the car's clock to be worthy as a second-hand?  
      Options: More interested in leather seats, lumbar support or panoramic roof rather than Sat Nav and fancy low profile alloys.

      Hi everyone!
      I couldn't find anything about my query with a quick search on the forum.
      I currently have a 2004 Corolla and thinking to upgrade to an used 2007 Auris.
      I recently had the whole break system replaced with brand new parts. Will any of these fit 2007 Auris?
