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 :)

      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?

      I'm after some advice ... my service books states for my 2010 Yaris D4D that oil change and filter carried out every 10,000 miles but keep reading in forums that owners do theirs every 5,000 - 6,000 miles.
      I currently drive around 25,000 miles a year (urban roads but generally 60mph most of the way) so get my vehicle serviced every 10,000 miles.
      Should I look at getting my oil and filter changed between services? I want to keep my vehicle as long as possible and use v-power fuel. I acquired the vehicle with a fsh at 44,000 miles and currently up to 55,000 miles.

      So I filled my newly acquired, 05 plate Toyota Yaris a little over 2 weeks ago right to the top with BP ultimate diesel (planning to do this every fifth tank or so to help keep it clean). As a small test I reset my trip so the next time I fuelled (today), I can see how many litres I've used from the 45 litre tank by filling right to the top again. The results were:
      trip: 565.3 miles
      fuel: 34.9 litres
      I got a hell of a shock when I worked it out to be 73+!!!... now I try to drive economically don't get me wrong but I like to put my foot down every now and again too, and it's all mainly country roads here. Maybe it was the premium diesel making such a difference? I paid 120+ per litre for it (which hurt my wallet)... Just find it baffling how I got it that good, that's right at the top end of its claimed MPG.
