  1. Cheers for that but I don't seem to have the facility to change my display name, all I can change is email and password. Maybe one of the administrators will read this and offer some help. Thanks Mark
  2. will someone please tell me how to change my display name, I've posted this question 3 times now with no reply. Thanks Mark
  3. How do you change your display name?

  4. Yes I agree with the above posts, I have a 2007 D4D 2.0 with 87,000 and had the head gasket issue. Dealer changing the engine under the extended warranty no quibbles. Dealer told me that it is due to carbon build up on top of pistons so the pistons have been re-designed on the refurbished engines. Also he reassured me that these rebuilt engines have come from Toyota Japan and not some back street engine builder. I think that Toyota really want to put this head gasket problem behind them and will not take the chance of fitting sub standard engines. I too was going to get rid once the work was done but after basically getting a new engine, injectors and clutch it would be foolish and I agree with the other member that the D4D is a bombproof reliable power plant when its running right and its had its pistons redesigned so surely it can only get better.
  5. Hi, How do you change your user name. Cheers Mark
  6. Hi All, I'm new to the club and was hoping for some advice please. Had the car since January this year and have suffered the head gasket failure on my 2007 D4D 2.0 Avensis. Dealers been absolutely brilliant, refurbished engine and new injectors as well, only because they had to damage one to get it out, had to be replaced as a set. Something to do with them being type1 or type 2 injectors anyway I'm chuffed to bits. Had a new clutch fitted while the engine was out to avoid a £1200 bill later on down the line so just had to pay for parts. Anyway the air con has not worked since I bought the car and asked them to do an air con service while they had the car, they said they would do an air con service as part of the repair but rung me up to say it could not be done because some large object had gone through the lower front black grill and had damaged the condenser. A bill for around £400 which I cant afford at the moment. I was thinking of getting a serviceable Toyota condenser from a breakers for £75 + VAT and fitting it myself and then getting the air con service done but I've been led to believe that the front bumper has to come off for access to the condenser. Is this the case and if so how do I go about getting it off. Hand break needed adjusting as well, dealer said they would do it for free while the car was on the ramp. Talk about excellent customer service, I've never witnessed anything like it from any other car dealer. HW Moon Toyota at Wigan have been fantastic. Cheers Mark
