  1. Thing is i just got off the motorway and was sitting at lights, car had been doing 70 mph plus for thirty mins, wouldn't that be classed as a warm engine or up to temp?
  2. Only noticed this morning that my revs were sitting high, i turned blower off then the revs dropped to normal.. My question is is that normal? Not known this on any other car i've driven Or is it clever stuff kicking in putting more juice in the battery when under load?
  3. Driving to work this morning a little bit ambitiously (got up late putting foot down) i had to brake quite hard as another motorist must have had dirty wing mirrors as he nearly had 1.5 tons of silver avensis in his boot. Anyway there was a loud clunk, engine mount clunk? I accelerated hard off the lights a few mins later and the same clunk which i felt through the pedals again happened. Now thinking Mr T Bromsgrove have not tightened something, i know it's hard to comment on me saying clunk but what's the chances?
  4. Im new to Toyota, apart from driving the other half's MR2's, personally i think my Avensis 2.2 ticks most boxes, safe, comfortable, great on the M ways with my family on board, etc etc.. But massive questions are they reliable enough? Have they lost their quality edge?
  5. Hello Cabcurtains, In my limited experienced opinion i agree that it is well linked with the TSB and yes the obvious point is why did they do that work if it is not linked?? One minute i was talking about dropping my mrs off at work and her catching the bus back for a week(**** me, should have seen her face) then i get a call to say its fixed all of a sudden? Mixed thoughts, my Mrs is pleased though To clarify, i said i needed to borrow her car so i could get to work...

  7. Hello Mr M, I feel this is the end of the road, the technician in his proffesional opinion has carried the sufficient work out to rectify this issue. The engine has been put back together so how can we challenge this? This is where i'm at.... with 17,000 + miles to go (3 yrs) i can have peace of mind, if it blows it goes back in, if not i will part ex it with 4 weeks of warranty left. I'm still in a comfortable position. it drives much better and picked up to 90 mph quite nicely today on the M5.. What would have all that work cost? Grand + ???
  8. Latest, I managed to get hold of the Workshop Manager, he advised the below The warranty guy only attaends Bromsgrove on Tuesday, he will fill out my paperwork tomorrow and post it to me with the work carried out. He looked at the invoice and he could see i have had a new water pump, seals gasket, oil etc. He couldn't send me that info as it has prices etc only relevant to Toyota. He mentioned that he worked strictly to the guide lines and the Carbon build up was not excessive so therefore the engine had a clean up which should not cause any further problems He also mentioned that they were doing Engine replacements more frequent in the past but now they have more strict guidelines
  9. Thamks guys, im going to try and get a report of what work they've actually done, will keep you posted
  10. Thanks Ormi, Should i call Toyota GB with all the info, or visit the Garage? I get the impression Bromsgrove Toyota will fob me off, i checked my paperwork and there is no mention of the work carried out only an inspection report saying there's no gas in my air con. Steve
  11. Might just do that as soon as my car gets back from Asda
  12. Still no info from Garage, they haven't returned any calls.
  13. Mr M, just called in the big guns! Ormi... just sent PM if he would mind reading this thread, i mentioned that you passed on his name
