  1. Thank you for your input, I am currently awaiting the mid silencer to be replaced as that has now formed a split, it never ends lol
  2. Sorry for the late reply, thank you for your input, I did have to replace the entire back box part as it completly rusted away from the mid pipe, but I still have this rattle and after reading your post I will get my garage guys to look at this. I have been told so many things it could be including :- Catalytic converter, Engine mounts, Torque converter, Timing chain etc etc. If anyone else has any further info before I pay for things that the garage THINKS it is I would very much appreciate it. Nothing has changed much as to how the rattling occurs, it is still when the engine heats up and at idle, low rev and in low gear and reverse. It has got a little louder and now there is a slight squeek from the engine if I shift from drive to reverse and vice versa.
  3. I am pretty sure I saw more fuses behind the glove box, I'm sure I remember seeing some there when I was checking my pollen filter. Hope this helps, sorry I cant be more precise without actually checking my own car lol
  4. I have a 2002 Toyota Previa 2.4 Auto GLS VVTI, I keep getting a rattling noise coming from the engine area when the engine is at optimum temperture and it only does this when the car is at low speed or rev and espeically when put into reverse. This is concerning me quite a bit as I have had a listen at the engine and it sounds like it is coming from underneath the heat sheild. I also have a tiny rattle in my backbox and dont know if this is connected in any way. Any advice is much appreciated before I spend a fortune on stuff that doesn't need to be replaced.
  5. Does anyone know if the sliding seats are able to come out the car ( I know they do this bit lol ) ad then go back in so that they face each other?? I know the imported Previas can do this but i was wandering about the UK version
  6. Hi al,l I was wandering if anyone can tell me where I can get stuff to modify my car and/or is it possible ie: I want to see if the Estima Aeras body kit will fit on my car and also can someone tell me if I upgrade the spark plugs, air filter and possibly change the exhaust to a sports one will that make a difference on the MPG?

  8. Hi everyone, I have recently bought my second car which happens to be a Toyota!!! And I think its fantastic!!! For a second hand car its the best buy I have ever had. I will probably be asking a lot of questions over the coming weeks as there is things I want to change and modify and things I will want to know in general lol. I look forward to speaking to all you great car drivers and enthusiasts!!
