Throttle Cable And Sump Plug

Recommended Posts

Went up to toyota on friday last week to get a price for a throttle cable and a sump plug (ive got a slight Oil leak)

They wanted £80 for a throttle cable - to which i said no thanks

and they said they'd order me a sump plug , which they would phone me about yesterday- still havent had a call! I will have run out of Oil and sh*gged the engine by the time i get it!

Are these dealer parts only or is there any other place i could get them from?

£80 seems a bit steep to me for a throttle cable!

cheers

Looks like ill have to Shell out the £80 then , i dont understand though why dealers dont take better care of their customers- i mean our local motor store will bend over backwards to get you the things you need - almost next day - and toyota cant even get me a £3.00 sump plug four days after ive ordered it! :angry:

Hi Tegan,

Celica breakers (01579 383879) might have a throttle cable (cost me £30 last time). If not PM me as I know a guy who breaks Mk1s and should be able to get one for you.

Edit: Are you sure it's not the sump plug washer thats died/MIA?

The other guy that LimeyMkI knows is the bloke in New Forest I have told you about.

Keep an eye on ebay as previously said. I have recently seen a throttle cable being listed - can't remember if it's the same one as posted above though...

Look for the guys breaking MKI's and contact them via email - always works for me. If not MR2OC and IMOC both have a large number of very knowledgeable (sp?) MKI boffins who have access to tonnes of MKI bits.

Thanks G

I had a look at the one on Ebay but he seller says it was frayed so not much use - ill just have to get a new one me thinks - better safe than sorry :yes:

Also tried emailing the bloke from JAE but email addy is dead :(

As for the sump plug WELL: i still havent had a call from toyota! Ffs! :censor:

But i called my mate who works at Halfords - he rang round a few places - finally ends up phoning Ron Brookes - the very same toyota garage that i ordered mine from

and he managed to get me one for wednesday! :o

How come they wouldnt call me back but they have sorted it out for him! :ffs:
