  1. Thanks that's brill, can you tell what the colour wire is for the -ve signal/trigger wire is for the camshaft sensor as well quickly too? Should be either blue or black for 06 Celica 1zz 140hp model. thanks v much
  2. Hiya Flash, thanks, oh yeah mine's a 1zzfe not a 2zz, orange and white looks right, am I right in thinking the sensor connector is underneath the inlet manifold close to the dipstick, and am I also right in thinking that the negative wires the actual signal/trigger wire (not the positive power supply one) and can you tell on there what colour wires the negative one for the camshaft sensor looks like it should be either a blue or a black one by my eyesight? Much appreciated wise friend.
  3. Hiya does anyone know if the crankshaft position sensor on the zz-fe engines are a 2_wire or a 3_wire sensor and does anyone know which wire is the trigger/signal wire is and maybe colour at all? (I'm trying to install an lpg kit to my car, thanks)
  4. No I don't think it's possible realistically, short of forced induction there's not much more you can do to improve the hp of the 140 effectively, except swap the engine's over completely to a 190.
  5. Sounds like you got good use out of it anyway, can I ask you have you had to spend much money on it over the years many big repair bills needed up until now? And what sort of mpg/fuel consumption did you get out of it with the nature of your driving? Thanks
  6. I believe the aisin clutches are the oem ones and are supposee to be the best quality and last longest and are pretty price comparable if you can get one of those.
  7. Hiya Barbara I've got a spare boot seal in Manchester and I know someone in Lancs with a silver fuel flap if that's what you need, the above sellers out of both, send me a message if you still need them and that's any good for you cheers G
  8. 7538614901 Hiya can you supply this part please it's a Celica blue Dragon badge from the mk1 s I think Thanks and cheers
  9. Anybody got any maintenance like tips you can do to prevent brake slider pins from seizing once they've been fitted to the car? Thanks
  10. Ok thanks so moral of the story seems to be generally, avoid the dpf models if poss to remove that potentially problematic part outta the equation then?
  11. Thanks v much for that Steve, so just to clarify you've generally used your Toyota 1.4 diesels around town bar the odd motorway blast and haven't suffered any of the typical diesels big repair bills and low mpg on that basis? Has anyone else got any experience of this engine too? Thankyou
  12. I mite be wrong here cos im not an expert at all and I hope I stand to be corrected myself personally cos I've got one and stand in the same boat but I don't think there's much more you can do to improve performance or mpg of the 140hp 1zzfe you ccertainly haven't done already without going down the expensive route of forced induction or upgrading to the 190model!! I don't think it can be remapped and in fact some induction kits can actually take away performance or bog the low down torque, although you've got a more freer flowing exhaust that may well help with it. Things you defo can do that'll help and they def o suffer from with induction kits is clean the maf and throttle body/iacv periodically which can also result in them bogging down at low revs too.also And perhaps maybe general services checking the coi l packs are ok and tight. You could perhaps try and improve the handling and brakes and lighten it poss the wheels which may have a similar effect tho perhaps. hope someone else comes up with some more better suggestions myself, it is a pretty efficient engine as is HTH
  13. I know it's topical that diesels are no longer popular but I'm just after another cheap 2nd hand Toyota as a cheap around town runner and I particularly wondered if the older 1.4 diesel Toyota yarises and corollas would be suitable for this purpose and still be economical or would they also fall into the category s of not being frugal mpg wise around town and would also accrue expensive diesel type repairs with this usage? Or should I just still stick to the smaller petrol variants? Does anybody have any idea?
  14. Hiya I have a toyota Celica vvti with the 1zz-fe 1.8cc engine in it and I'm now looking for another but more practical + useful toyota (can be older as well as newer) that is similar mechanically so I can utilise some of the spares I've built up and also experience of doing work on this car. What are the closest but more practical other Toyota s mechanically to the Celica gen 7 vvti has anyone got any ideas?
