So you think Toyota dont make their engines with the correct bores for their head bolts?

THAT is a load of rubbish.

Im sorry but if Toyota built their Avensis engines wrong then they would all have the same problem. I dont believe your mechanic personally

And please DONT SEND ME PM's

This is a public forum and i expressed an opinion.

Personally i couldnt give a toss about your engine but i posted up my opinion that i think your mechanic is talking crap as nobody else posted a reply.

So a stange small problem limited only to ireland then. Perhaps its you guys trying to run your cars on guinness instead of petrol that breaks the engines :lol: ;)

I dont care if people send me weird messages, even the messages from crazy people.

No problem, i wont post up a reply to any future topics of yours ;)
