  1. In the first year of owning my petrol T25 i was getting 41-42 mpg, now the novelty of it has worn off and I drive it like its stolen it still gets 37.5.
  2. Just put pagid discs and pads all-round on my T25. The quality of the parts is spot on but they lack that initial bite IMO. Maybe they need more than a couple of week to bed in.
  3. So, small update guys. Went and got some oil from toyota. It is a 75 mono grade as devon stated, £30 for 2 litres. Put it in yesterday and hey presto!! gear change feels much snappier and no more crunching at all.
  4. + 1 for the rubber bump stops. Mine started doing exactly the same so spaced them out with washers but 6 months later they have worn again it's rattling once again. Replacements are £35 all in.
  5. Devon, any chance you can confirm the correct grade of gearbox oil for a 2008 1.8 avensis TR please?
  6. Brilliant. Thanks for the help everyone, gonna order castrol syntrans and update this thread when I have replaced the oil.
  7. Hmmm, very intriguing!! Really hoping the oil that toyota recommends in the official handbook supplied with the vehicle hasn't damaged anything. Just been looking on opie to order some but a bit confused. Would the Castrol Syntrans FE 75W Fully Synthetic Car Gearbox Oil be suitable? http://www.opieoils.co.uk/p-69412-castrol-syntrans-fe-75w-full-synthetic-gear-oil-gl4.aspx

  9. If it is clutch related why is it only doing on third and why only the first few shifts? According to the manual ; Oil Type: Gear oil API GL-4 or GL-5 Recommended oil viscosity: SAE 75W-90 http://www.halfords.com/motoring/engine-oils-fluids/gearbox-oil/halfords-gear-oil-ep-75w-90-gl-5-1l This is what I got from halfrauds.
  10. Hey all. Looking for some advice please. I recently had the gearbox oil changed and now roughly a month after the job was done the first few gear changes going from second to third have started to crunch like mad, no problems whatsoever before the fluid change. The fluid used was the correct grade but was just halfords own brand. What are the chances of a more expensive brand or toyota's own fluid will cure the issue? Thanks!!
  11. Sorry to resurrect an old thread but why does the manual only cover 2003 to 2007 when production didn't end until 2009???
  12. Hmmmm, very strange indeed. Does your manual have a date range?? Mine says 2003 to 2007 but I am unable to source a 2007 to 2009 T25 manual.
  13. I have the cam sensor out and cold it's reading 1.092 ohms. Can I ask where you got the ohm values from ents? I have an avensis repair manual and according to that the cam sensor for the 1zz fe should be between 835 to 1,400 cold.
  14. Thanks guys!! Will check tomorrow and update. Just out of curiosity, what make you think cam/crank sensors?
