  1. You can't do anything with the standard ecu. It's aftermarket only, then you'd be looking at over £1500 for the ECU and a basic tune just to find out it's not the ECU. I can't help you any further, doubtful it's the ECU as i'm sure you'd be getting other problems along with it. I doubt you'll get many replies on here as the celica part of this forum isn't busy enough. Mod edit - link removed
  2. Have you checked none of the fuses have blown, they are down by the panel by your left leg when sitting in driver seat. Also some located under bonnet, right hand side
  3. I had tein coilovers on my 190, as I swapped to a GT about 2 months later I sold them on, the person who had them off me ended up getting them repaired a few months later as they were leaking, and this seems a common problem on the tein. Meister R are probably one of the best out there
  4. It may fit, but wont run right, as you say the manifold, injectors and throttle body are different so the ecu won't be tuned for these.
  5. A 2001 will be a generation 7, these were made between 1999-2006 and the last in line of the celica model. 2x engine variants a 140BHP version (badged as vvti) and a 190BHP version (badged as vvti-190, t-sport or GT) both are 1.8ltr engines. Don't know why yours has TR on it, I know there were a few packages available on the celica, but these didn't have any badges to say so. The earlier 140BHP version has a design flaw with the engine and can cause it to burn excessive amounts of oil, especially if the engines were not serviced regularly, not all suffer from this problem
  6. 140 and 190 engines are completely different, so I don't know where you heard that from. Nothing is interchangeable on them as far as I am aware, the only thing you may have heard is the 190 is similar to the 140 power wise up until you reach lift in a 190 engined car, but having never driven a 140 I can't compare. New panel filter with stock airbox is what most go for, I don't know if a 140 has a butterfly valve in the stock airbox or if it's just the 190, but this can be removed to increase noise levels a little. Short ram filters only increase noise and usually lose power, you c
  7. It depends on your insurance company, thing is maximum speed on UK roads is 70mph but tyres should be rated for the maximum speed the car can do, which to me is pointless as where on a UK road would you do 140mph. V & W rated tyres are past what the car can do. Insurance companies would only be fussy on ratings lower than the car maximum speed not higher, that's why some insurance companie are fussy about fitting winter tyres, your making your car safer to drive in the winter and less chance of damaging the car but theyre not bothered about this they are only bothered because w
  8. As far as I was aware you couldn't buy Toyota coolant in concentrated form, and I was always told pink was used in the celica engine and not the red
  9. Sounds like you have oil burning issues, be careful and always check your oil level regularly, the more oil it starts using your going to want to be checking the oil every week, otherwise it's a new engine if you run out of oil Here is a link to a topic on another celica club, regarding oil burning issues with a 140 engine, definatley worth a read to keep you informed. You may need to register to view but it's free, but are limited to where you can post with a free account. http://www.celica-club.co.uk/forum/index.php?/topic/125889-boughtlooking-at-a-99-02-celica-140-gen7-read-this/
  10. which model do you have, 140 or 190 engine. some 140 models suffered with oil problems, but you will smoke coming from the exhaust if this is the case. Sounds like your coolant loss is from the radiator which is a common problem, usually from the bottom corners and very hard to detect. Get that changed and some new coolant. Also sounds like from what you've said they have put leak repair stuff in the radiator which you should never do as it can cause blockages in narrower pathways inside the radiator and engine block. Radiator can be bought from ebay for about £35, m
  11. It may be a dealer part only. I haven't seen these around online anywhere
  12. Not as far as I am aware they don't. they are only listed to fit ZZT23 chassis codes which is gen 7 only.
  13. Front or back??? Front could be sunroof, but not all GT's had them Rear it's more than likely the boot seal has gone, you could do with removing the rear seats and checking for a puddle in the seat well, just pull very hard from the bottom of the front of the seat where it meets the floor carpet coming up the front. There are rubber grommets there you can remove to let any water out if you find any.
  14. Avensis discs and calipers are a srtaight swap, hopefully the following link works for you http://www.celica-club.co.uk/forum/index.php?/topic/153172-avensis-295mm-front-brake-upgrade/
  15. Discs and pads is all you need, no need to change anything else. If you want you could upgrade to braided brake lines to get rid of a little of the sponge feeling from the brake pedal that all gen 7's suffer with, or for a few quid more you can buy avensis calipers, then you have slightly bigger discs and better braking but non of the spongey feeling. Those are the standard t-sport wheels, most celica wheels were made by a company in Italy called fondmetal, not 100% sure if these are though, they are usually pretty soft metal and easily warp when youv'e gone over a few pot holes, a
