yeah i would check scv valves next, if they are required pm parts king(lindop toyota) on here, should be able to sort you out on a price.

I suggest you buy them from genuine toyota dealership for piece of mind. I think there are around £200

Hi,

have you got access to an OBD code reader? It might give a bit more information and maybe reduce the risk in buying the SCVs.

check with EGR as it looks you have contra pressure on the exhaust as one of possible issues

re turbo -- check if all vanes are well rotated, and check with vacuum impulse tube if it is clean inside.

ok firstly old turbo failed because Oil filter failed the vains are rotating perfectly and theres lots of vacuum in pipe if you disconnect vacuum pipe from actuator the engine will rev freely above 3000 its only when the gains are activated it struggles

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
