I am new to the forum so HI to everyone. I've found the forum to be a great source of information in the past and would like to find out if anyone can help with this issue.
My Toyota Auris 2007 1.6L petrol, gave me an engine management light warning ('Check Engine' on the dash) while driving back home after a hot day on the beach. I didn't notice any issue with the engine apart from a little judder when the light came on. No leaks, smoke, noise or anything else. I completed my journey with no problems and was thinking what to do with the car. The light stayed on for about a week and then the fault disappeared. Before it went, I managed to check the fault code which gave me the following fault: P0335 - Crankshaft position sensor A circuit malfunction'. After about two weeks, while driving I felt a judder and the management light came on again. This time the judder is more noticeable. I took the car for a ride on the motorway 70mph/3-4 gear to burn it out as advised by a friend (in case it is one of the sensors in exhaust) but so far the light is still on. And the judder seems to be more noticeable when the engine gets warm. I am wondering whether anyone else had a similar experience and would be kind enough to share it with me. I am a bit reluctant to take the car to the garage as I was told this fault code could be caused by several issues.
I drove the car again today with no problem. If I am sensible the car runs fine. When the engine gets hot and I try to trash it a little bit the judder comes back.
I would be grateful for any advice.
I want to mod my car but am unsure where to start. I would like to lower the car and get bigger wheels but i'm not really sure how this would affect the ride quality and handling.
Also the car has 150k miles on the clock so it might not be the smartest idea to dump money into it. I would like to hear your opinion on the best mods for the E12 corolla and if it is even worth modding in the first place.
My 2003 2.0 D4D T-Spirit:
I am a new member from the US. Longtime classic BMW owner who has stumbled upon a 1981 Toyota Hiace in the USA. It was imported from Panama by a member of the military. I am considering buying it but have a concern: the seller claims the throttle is stuck open, and he does not know what causes it. He has not driven it since this condition developed.
Due to the rural location of the seller, a pre-inspection is not possible (and he is located several states away from me). The Hiace has the 2.2L diesel "L" engine and I am trying to determine what my potential for any damage might be due to the stuck throttle issue. Even if the seller turned the van off right away, I'm concerned about the potential for internal engine issues.
What do you think? Are there any major risks with this engine or is it fairly durable? Thanks for any advice.
I recently updated the Touch and Go unit in our 2015MY Yaris Hybrid to the latest 6.7.0WL.
We now have an issue that I cannot seem to cure.
The DAB radiotext first displays information relative to the station we are receiving e.g. Magic.
After about 5 seconds or so, it changes to whatever is happening on BBC Radio 2 but the display above the radiotext correctly shows the station.
I've tried moving the multiplex to another output i.e. Birmingham Local, Nottingham local, Derby local etc and it still happens.
Anybody else having this issue and if you resolved it, how did you manage it.
Great to meet you all, have never been part of an owners club but found this through googling my dashboard problem and thought - why not?
My first car (M Reg Punto) has finally given up the ghost so I've just bought a 2005 5 door Corolla in shiny black.
So far I love it, going from a 1.0 to a 1.6 has been fun to say the least! And the extra room is great. Today is my fourth day of ownership and set off for work this morning when the seatbelt alarm started going off. When I had my seatbelt on?? Is this normal? Is it an electrical fault inside the dashboard? Who knows... I shall have to get my mechanic to investigate next weekend.
For now, I will enjoy browsing the forum. Happy Monday to you all!
