  1. the head is shimmed, non hydraulic. the oil doesn't seem to be too far out, might want to go for 5w40 though, dependent on temperature local to you. Thanks for that. Cheers
  2. My engine sounds a little tappety. Are 5efe engines hydrolic or shimmed tappets? Do i need to have the head re shimmed or do I need to do an oil change and use a thicker grade oil. I currently use 10w40 semi synth mobil super s. :)
  3. I own a 96 Paseo ST which had a cambelt change at around 46000miles. Now on 86000 but only avarage 6000miles or less each year. Does the cambelt need replacing yet? Any tips or manuals available? Would be a great help if anyone had tips on replacing the alternator, complete kit or is it best to just do the belt? Any help would be appreciated.
  4. I managed to get a custom made stainless steel cat back exhaust system with life time warranty for mine for about £320. Toyota wannted £800+ at the time. Think that was about 3years ago though. Worth trying to get quotes and on the plus side you get to choose the back box style!
  5. Exhaust back box fell off today. Is it easy to fit a standard box on my own?!
  6. I have just got a quote to replace a cambelt from Toyota and the say they can change it for me for £182.99 they can also give me a discount which will bring it down to £173.85(whoopie doo)!. They sa it takes about 1hr 45mins to do. Are they KIDDING me or is this price normal? Is it easy to change it yourself(well i'll could find someone to help me).

  8. just found out my radiator on my rev 2 is more holy than the pope does any one know where i can source a new one from in the chester/Ellesmere port area its N/A not a tubby does any one do uprated rads for better cooling?
  9. My little paseo 96 can give a 1.6 modified and tuned nissan a good run for its money ! As far as I know mine hasn't been altered in any way. have been looking into getting mine 'chipped', no luck so far . My boyfriend seems to think mine is quicker than it should be. excuse me for being stupid :) but how can i tell for sure that my engine is a 5e-fe?
  10. Full conversion sounds a lot of work/money! contacted a jap import centre and they are looking into MoTeC or E-Manage ecu's? Not quite sure exactly how they work but they give similar results. Any info? :hokus-pokus: Oh. and by the way, my ickle Paseo needs to stay reliable!
  11. Yeah I think it's a Dastek one? Funny though I've looked on their site and could never find one <_< Mmmm turbos ← cheers for all the help. contacted dastek but they need to get back to me with addresses of uk dealers. they still are not sure if it can be done to my baby paseo still going to keep it though. Well at least for another 12mths!
  12. really i bet that theres a yellow green one (with the back window tinted?) have you ever seen the purple one around? tim ← never seen a purple one. could it of been blue? When i went to buy mine i thought it was purple at first! :P :D Seen silver, green, black and red paseo where i live. not quite as rare as i would like
  13. anyone know where or if i can get my paseo power/superchipped?
  14. know anyone who can super/powerchip my paseo?
