Desperate For Info
Posted 15 July 2008 - 05:03 PM
I'm hoping someone here can help me to sort out some info about the engine in particular. I need a workshop manual for it. The particulars I have are:-
Engine 3C-E 2184cc non turbo diesel
Trans/Axle E59F FA12 constant 4WD
The car is a RHD estate with apparently British fixtures and fittings and it has 'Full time 4wd' printed on the sides. It has macpherson type strut front suspension and old fashioned solid back axle with cart spring rear suspension.
The trim is very basic with only speedo and fuel guage etc. No central locking or remote.
As I say I really do need engine info of some sort as I need to change the cambelt and give it a full service and any details of the rest of the car would be good as I need new brake shoes/pads all round and may well find other things will need sorting.
If anyone can suggest another Toyota which uses this engine and/or mechanicals or a possible source of a manual I would be very grateful.
Thanks in advance

Talk to the guys in the parts department - they seem to be universally helpful .
My Car was NEVER sold anywhere outside Japan - no bother getting info and parts for it from Toyota.
You could drop a PM to Parts-King and see if he can help you out ( Lindop Toyota section of the forum )

Feeling more optimistic I decided to replace the brake shoes. I went to my local (and very helpful) car parts shop today with a pair of the old brake shoes and he tried to match them with other Toyota shoes but had no luck so he phoned Toyota while I was there and gave them details and asked for suggestions. He was told that it was very unlikely there were any in the country and if there were Toyota could not help with finding them!
Since one shoe has shed it's lining and the others are completely shot I am stumped again at the moment. Think I should have bought that Peugeot 405 I saw instead :-)

Also might be worth downloading the Toyota EPC from here http://forums.baucha...l/downloads.php then you can look up your chassis number and get the parts numbers.

my car is an import, and granted quite a few parts are used in models sold here, i had no trouble ordering some oem parts from him! my idler was a back order from japan so it took a few days to arrive! and he delivers right to your door step.
