    Well I'll start with the manual decoke, and then monitor it. If it builds up quickly I'll give the additives a try and see if it makes a difference. Filled up for the first time yesterday and couldn't believe how expensive VPower has got! It used to be worth it when I had my little Daihatsu Sirion Rallye 2 as it gave me more mpg, but I suspect this won't be the case with a diesel.

    Haha. Will definitely start at cleaning EGR valve, then drive it for a while. Other experiments may follow!

    Thanks Kyle. Interesting about the bendy intake piping. Know exactly what you mean about being scary until the turbo kicks in, I've been caught out a couple of times pulling out into traffic. As soon as I can get these kidney stones lasered and the stent taken out I'll start experimenting.

    Thanks for all the advice. It'll be a slow progress report I'm afraid, I'm waiting for a minor operation so can't really do anything at the moment! Obviously not doing many miles either. Be keen to see any differences though.

    Yes, I think cleaning the valve is the place to start. I've read that they're happier if run on VPower, so I'll try that for a while. Maybe the occasional additive in the tank, just to keep it clean. I'll see how it goes.

    I don't think it's turbo lag, there's no response AT ALL at low revs, and above 1800rpm there's no sign of lag. I read someone else's - very good - post about cleaning the EGR valve, so I think I'll start there.

    Hello all, I've just bought a 58 plate Auris SR180. It appears to have been quite well looked after and the engine sounds sweet and pulls well, but it's truly gutless at low revs. From 1000-1300rpm it will not accelerate at all, and only really starts to pull after 1800rpm, going very well from 2000. Is this a normal trait, or should I be looking at the EGR valve etc? Would remapping help, or is it likely to lead to more problems? The previous owner had been using it for a 20 mile motorway commute, but during the last year it's probably been used mostly around town. Other than the ab
  8. Thanks for the advice, have a quote through 1stchoice.co.uk from Dewsburyautosalvage.com for a new rear box, £102 including delivery. Not too bad I thought. Still waiting for a quote for rear brake pads though. Checked out Wellhouse but they only post stuff if it's a minimum £150 order, might try and phone them though.
  9. Hi, I'm a new member to this club and , of course, I've joined up because I have a query! I have a '98 Hiace Regius which I bought about 6 or 7 years ago. It has been totally reliable, if a little thirsty after having a 2.5 Caravelle (average 24-28mpg compared to the Caravelle's 35-40mpg!), but the back box has rotted through and I now need new rear brake pads (changed the front ones a few years back but can't remember where I got them from!). Does anyone here have any tips on where to get these parts? I haven't had a particularly good experience of getting parts from Toyota dealers, but maybe
