  1. It's been a year since changing the top lambda sensor. Approximately 10k miles. The CEL has not returned. Sent from my VTR-L09 using Tapatalk
  2. Its petrol Sent from my VTR-L09 using Tapatalk
  3. Just wanted to be sure. I checked my oil level and it needs topping up. For my last service i used 5w30 Casterol. I got 5w30 of another brand is it okay to use it to top my engine oil level. Dipstick showing between min and max. Sent from my VTR-L09 using Tapatalk
  4. I would try personally changing the sensors, with something from the scrap yard if im lucky to find it. Sent from my VTR-L09 using Tapatalk
  5. I think its the issue with vvti engines. You can see it on youtube. Sent from my VTR-L09 using Tapatalk
  6. Could be what u put on front seat. Happended to me 2x when i had my work bag in the front seat. Its like the seat belt warning noise isnt it. Sent from my VTR-L09 using Tapatalk
  7. Nope same but less of it. I park in underground car park. It happends when i start it. Possibly low temperature as it is cold. If i put key in and let dash light up and then start the engine noise is reduced even further. Sent from my VTR-L09 using Tapatalk

  9. I was chabged the bottom sensor once and cel came back and changed top aswel cel was gone. Strange even though fault was pointing g at bottom one even when new. Sent from my VTR-L09 using Tapatalk
  10. Try changing both sensors. As you changed bottom one try the top. Sent from my VTR-L09 using Tapatalk
  11. Which model do you drive and engine. Just wanted to kniw what oil you use. I got an oil change due soon. Im unsure what to use. Sent from my VTR-L09 using Tapatalk
  12. I would reccomend trying the scrap yard. Sent from my VTR-L09 using Tapatalk
  13. Hmmmm, does ur car have warranty? I'm not sure. It might be worth getting it checked out. Sent from my VTR-L09 using Tapatalk
  14. I had similar issue with 0w20. After doing 4 to 5k miles i needed half a bottle of 1ltr 0w20. I think these 0w grade oils are thin and burn quicker. I spoke to 3 mechanics and they said 5w30 is what they prefer for older cars. Whay do you think? Whats mileage of ur car? Sent from my VTR-L09 using Tapatalk
