    Power loss

    thanks, so the carbon buildup you get behind the intake valves should go if you go on the motorway a lot or will it just build up as cleaner would never reach it ?

    Power loss

    is the 1.33 a direct injection engine?
  3. as some of you may remember last year i had chain noise and after lots and lots of complaining they eventually changed the chain, tensioner and guides, but over the last few weeks the noise is comming back, not as back as before but its getting there. seeing as they changed everything, what is causing this to come back, another faulty tensioner? just loosing all interest in so called toyota quality have a listen for yourself file 2660 is before the engine is fully up to temp and then the noise goes away completely file 2661 is a cold start with the noise there at the start and then goes away but it comes back before going away when the car is fully up to temp MOV02660.AVI MOV02661.AVI

    thanks for your reply yes you hit the nail on the head, thinking of trading in instead of putting up with all the hassle

    timing chain noise comming back after replacement

    thanks for your reply i dont know what they did as the main dealer did the work, i do know they use 0w20 fully synth oil and that the car had its oil changed at 6000 miles first service and again at 10000 miles for the chain replacement and then again at 14000 for the second service, the car is now at 17000 and the noise has started over the last 1000 miles or so it is a pity it doesnt use the screw in type tensioner that fits from the outside of the engine block rather than stripping the side off again, i think they will prob fob me off as they did at first until the noise got worse im sure it wont have any blockage with all those oil changes and after running it with the oil cap off the chain is getting plenty of oil on it and it is defanately the cause of the noise, although the oil pressure getting to the tensioner cannot be seen. i will see how it goes before taking it in as this dealer likes to fob you off a lot and failed on other jobs too they do not fill me with confidence and all other main dealers are far away and by the time i get there the noise will have gone away im just glad i bought it pre reg as i would be fuming it i paid £16.5k for it, it was only 2.5 months old when i got it with 26 miles very dissapointed purchase which i will not be making again

    timing chain noise comming back after replacement

    thanks for your reply the thing about that is that it goes quiet and normal running after it warms up and doesnt use a drop of oil either, the noise is def coming from the chain as i compared it to videos i took before the work was carried out plus it was normal sounding after the work carried out for 6000 miles +

    timing chain noise comming back after replacement

    thanks for replying it was done at the main dealer in march 2018 and the oil was changed it lasted almost 10 months and 6000 miles before this noise started to come back, the same as the old noise they changed the chain, tensioner and guides. they even changed the water pump last service i have not contacted the dealer yet, but there is still nearly 3 years of warranty left. i cannot believe the same noise has come back after the amount of parts that were replaced and the amount of arguing with the dealer in the first place to get the job done, and after the job was done it was quiet as it should be for 10 month at least im very dissapointed by the quality of this "mazda" engine and the rust on the tailgate so when the new jazz comes out next year i will be going back to honda, buit in japan and not france this is not what i expect from a car (i have had since new) that is just over two years old with just under 17000 miles on it

    Underseal?

    hammerite underbody seal is really good, once set it is like candle wax (not as hard) and doesnt run off ive had lots of luck with it over the years it does dry pretty hard and is not sticky when fully dry and wont come off when you touch it after a day or so you cant paint over it so it will be the final coat you apply and leaves a black finish
  14. with the a/c off the fan wont turn on until the engine gets hotter than operating temp if stuck in traffic etc otherwise it doesnt come on with a/c on the fan should start immediately and then cycle on and off 3 or 4 times per min but even with the a/c fan cycling if it gets too hot it will come on permanently and sometimes at a higher speed (but usually in the summertime in very heavy traffic)

    Reverse Camera - Water Ingress

    the camera still works ok so i doubt they will do anything as they are £400+ (a laughable amount for a camera) ill just keep my eye on it as i still have 3 years warranty left i just hope the rest doesn't come out when i wash it again or it gets damaged by water getting inside

    Reverse Camera - Water Ingress

    im not having any condensation in my camera, but when washing the car today (hosepipe with brush in the end, not pressure washer) i did notice that there was a rubber seal that seems to have come out from around the bottom, i removed it i just hope that water doesnt get into the electronics, the lens is still sealed, it is from the outer gap around the lens. the camera has always worked fine and if a wash made this seal fall out it must have been broken for a while and nothing has happened when driving in the rain mine is a 2016 yaris not a auris

    Part behind bumper hanging

    the clips look like they are still attached in the picture, just unclip the middle and then insert into the hole and push the centre back in to secure

    2nd service "extras"

    so on every service they ask if you want fuel treatement and on the major service they ask if you want a/c treatment which i always say no too my questions is if i get a fault with the a/c compressor in the future will they not cover it under the warranty because i didnt pay the "extra" on top of the £295? i mean they didnt even change the brake fluid as it is perfect clean and no pad wear, but it is part of the service and they put it down as using it on the service, but as i marked it it is still as the full mark with no one touching it, same with the screen wash and battery in the fob. they did change the pollen filter though as i checked and the old one was grubby basically to me the service is an oil change and a stamp for trade in value at a later date and not much else.

    water pump pink gunk

    2nd service been done and pump replaced foc, mechanic said he could see leak on the video they send you but it was pink gunk that had dried still feel a lot better having a new water pump on though with a new gasket and no black sealant around it, you dont use any sealant with a metal gasket

    water pump pink gunk

    what do you guys think of this gunk stuff around the waterpump join i have just noticed today, the water pump has been off when they replaced the faulty chain under warranty in march and its done over 3000 miles since. i checked the coolant and over about 1200 miles and 7 weeks the level has gone down in the amount from the first pic to the second its going in for its 2nd service in mid october and i will be mentioning it, i just hope they put the water pump back on ok and not damaged the seal or something could it just be settling in and a bit of leakage in the beginning and it will settle down or will it get worse thanks guys
  25. The trouble is where the rust is you cant get to it unless you remove the camera as the gap is too small even for a paint brush and on darker colours you will need a torch to see it properly actually inside the rear trim around the camera. Its easy to see the rust underneath the camera but check inside too.
