  1. Anyone any ideas what could cause the car to throw the code other than a blocked dpf? I've removed and cleaned the egr valve. It's a 1.4 d4d. It was professionally cleaned out at a cost of £450. Thanks
  2. I've had a quick Google and possibly the egr valve could cause this. Might have a go at cleaning it out myself and save a few ££
  3. Car went into limp mode 3 weeks ago ... dpf blocked and wouldn't force regen. I took it and had it removed and cleaned/flushed out at a cost of £450. Car was great when picked up , much nipper. Now 3 weeks and 350 miles later it went into limp mode again. Returned to original garage and they scanned it and said it was showing dpf partially blocked. They agree it shouldn't be after 350 miles so want to look into it. At £70 an hour! Just wondering if anyone has any ideas or experience with this ie could it be an exhaust sensor or similar? Thanks in advance
  4. I understand the car is mostly a yaris (2010) if that helps
  5. I'm changing discs and pads just needed to know if a rewind tool is required. Thanks
  6. Took the car out and followed the advice given, over 2500rpm for about 30 mins on motorway but no improvement. I don't think I mentioned the car is a diesel so I guess it's the dpf not a cat . Anyway I'm ringing the dealership in the morning and hopefully they can force a regen.. ££££££££
  7. As above the car is in limp mode so 30mph tops and only about 2500rpm. Never had this before I'm reluctant to hand over £50 to have it scanned at the dealers but from what I've read it may require a re-evaluation gen of the cat which I obviously can't do myself as the limp mode stops this. Any suggestions gratefully received. Thanks
  8. Im going to ring around for prices but just wondered what was a decent price. Its a 4wd diesel . Cheers
  9. Never heard of this before but due to the appalling fuel guage that goes from half a tank to empty in about 50 miles I ran very low on diesel. Possibly 20 + miles below zero range. Limp mode engaged on the way to filling up but sorted itself out after about 2 miles with a full tank. So I suppose not a bad result all in all . In other news it does now need a clutch after only 75k .
  10. That and the fact they were massively over priced. But they are wierd looking and 4 wheel drive and that's all that counts it even outweighs the tiny boot and no noticeable power
  11. Usually you need the engine/drivetrain book separately. Not sure where you'd get it tho. I don't think there's many u/c owners on here going on how quiet it is.
  12. My last car had auto locking doors that could be set , windows rolled down by holding the open button on the key fob etc. Just wondered if Toyota hid any stuff like this. The owners manual didn't show any.
