  1. Give over Isobel, you don't need more confidence...Anybody that shows that amount of determination and good, old fashioned, "Yorkshire Grit" has a shed load of it! I reckon that we talk to our cars because although they might be a chunk of metal with a tyre at each corner, they become part of the family don't they?.....Or is that just me being daft.....again? (I even apologised to mine, yesterday for not using it and asked if it had been too cold ) I'm going to scuttle off now before I hear Folk laughing at me! Take care.

  2. The Aygo uses an indirect tyre pressure monitoring system where loss of tyre pressure is measured by comparing rotational differences between the tyres. It can indicate a loss of pressure but doesn't narrow this down to a specific tyre. Some other cars use a direct system which uses tyre pressure sensors in each wheel. I've had one instance where the tpms triggered the warning light, and, on checking the tyre pressures, found a slow puncture in the offside front tyre - repaired free of charge by my Toyota dealer. With variances in ambient temperatures, tyres will show differences in pressure, and need adjusting from time to time.

  3. Hi John, not sure how yours is laid out mate, have a look in your w.s. manual. I would take the cover off and spray some WD40 in there if it was mine.

  5. The footage at the end is Brighouse, and the rest is going from Huddersfield to Shipley through Bradford. I did think it was a tad disturbing that I talk to my car but I figured I do it because it gives me more confidence

  6. Brilliant, Isobel....Simply brilliant! You have given me a laugh on a cold Saturday morning, not at your troubles but at your comments caught on the dashcam. That looks like just over't'tops from me, is it Brighouse? Anyway, well done to you and Rosie and thanks again. All the best. P.S. I'm glad it's not just me that talks to my car!

  8. Not easy to find but information is in your owners manual but no Not under Capacities nor gearbox but under "SPECIFICATIONS" which is listed in the alphabetical index. For Gearbox Oil in a 2010 manual it's page 652 and for a 2012 it's page 737, but just in case anyone has not got a manual, Petrol & Diesel engines use the same Manual Gearbox oil, Toyota recommends "Genuine Manual Transmission Oil" Specification is API GL4 SAE 75w Capacity Petrol 2.4 Ltrs Diesel 2.3 Ltrs. Hope this saves a few of you doing a long research on the web getting nowhere. All the Best, Mel Tinys Taxis Ltd Hitchin.

  9. Hi, I had the same problem. Poor start with cold day, engine sometimes only puff-puff and stall (blue-white smoke). In last three years I changed glow plugs, battery, overhaul fuel pump, bought new injectors, bought fuel warmer etc. But everything without effect. Now I found where is problem. If you have a small SCV valve on fuel pump (called Compact SCV) try this home made diagnostic: warm up SCV valve before starting in cold day using hot water or hot airgun (about 80°C). When engine start for first time, piston in SCV valve is seized (rather chill diminishes tolerance and piston seized). Denso prepare new version of SCV valve, please wait few days, I prepare complete guide with pictures, order numbers and Denso service manual. P.S. I´m sorry for my english, because I´m from Czech Republic :-) Edit: 6.2.2013 - Here is part number: new one - 0422626020 (replace old 042260L030) After replace SCV, you must make Supply Pump Initialization Procedure - see enclosed Denso Repair Manual, Repair Section/2.Diagnostic Overview/2-113 to 2-115. I make this process with Toyota IT II (Intelligent Tester), I think that this way is better than connecting terminals TC and CG.. After replacing SCV during calibration were two random errors. Both of these errors concerned Air Mass sensor and Intake Air Temperature. I erased all this errors three times during calibration. Now is everything OK. Torque for SCV bolts is 6,9Nm first, 10,8Nm second. DENSO CR SERVICE MANUAL.pdf
