  1. Hi Gazhenry, Good of you to reply so quickly. I don't know but I would have hoped so or at least with the bottle raised, they wouldn't have taken it to a hill. I'll take it back to the garage. Thanks.
  2. My apologies, this has been discussed before but the cure - a new rad - appears not to have stopped the loss of A/F from the expansion bottle and it backing up at the in-flow pipe on the RHS. This "lock" can be released by turning the white knob and A/F trickles back in but after having topped up, it becomes overfull! Help please. Many thanks in anticipation.
  3. Looks like I might have a similar problem. The coolant is low in the expansion tank which I have topped up twice since the summer (the first with ordinary water!). But when I loosened the little white knob on the rhs, coolant trickled back in to a decent level. I'll take to to the garage but would like to know what's going on beforehand. Many thanks in anticipation.
  4. I have just collected my 2005 Celica today... minus a handbook! Lost of stuff is still a mystery, including the alarm and a key that doesn't work it. so does anyonw have a handbook I can buy in decent nick? Cheers. ChasB
  5. Dear Sir, Could you pls quote for a 2005 Celica, fully comp, with 90 days northern Europe cover and breakdown? 5,000 miles pa and 7 years-plus no claims. I'm 59 and it will be parked on the driveway. Many thanks in anticipation.

  7. I'm going to pick up my first Celica at weekend. What am I doing? One thing, It doesn't have the radio/CD. Anyone got one to sell?
  8. Interesting. 12mm sounds both randomly chosen and accurate! Why?
  9. I have posted elsewhere about this so my apologies for any repetition. I wish to buy a Celica - not a GT or sport, just ordinary - and since the revised engines were apparently introduced in July 2005, need to know exactly which models are safe from the oil consumption problem. I've already passed over one from September 2005 for which the VIN appears about 400 too early and I'm looking at one registered on Jan 1 2006. But that too might still have an original engine! (I'm not so bothered about performance, it HAS to be reliable though, for journeys abroad.) Your advice please. Thanks in anticipation.
  10. Edwardio. Dear Sir, Your posts here display some authority in the oil/piston-ring problem. I am looking to buy and have already overlooked a 2005 model as elsewhere I have read that the engines were upgraded in July 2005, not 2003. Also, VINs should be post-600189857. Could you please clarify these points and what to look for? I have to say I can't tell a facelift model from the photos sellers put up. Very many thanks in anticipation. ChasB
