  1. Thanks @FROSTYBALLS - Just checked the VIN seems pretty clear it should be 3L2. Surprised how far off the supposedly matching paint is.. Will return it I think.
  2. Hi All, I've been trying to order a touchup paint pen for a few chips/scratches on my Red 1997 Celica GT. However I'm seeing a lot of conflicting information and have had a couple of false starts! First off, in the service book the code is written as '3L3 Rosso'. But this doesn't tie in with anything else I've read online. Most sites seem to suggest that the only red the 1997 celica was available in was '3L2' - But some call it 'Rennaissance Red' and some call it 'Super Red'. Does anyone know why this is? Can you have two different colour paints with the same codes? Anyhow I first bought a halfords touchup pen (which was a bad decision, clearly nowehere near, much brighter red). I then went online and ordered a 3L2 touch-up paint pen from 'Motornuts', which I've now tested and comes up way too dark. The results shown in the picture below.. Any advice would be much appreciated!
  3. Ta @mrfixer will go for some of them
  4. Thanks, guess I'll take a look whats in there currently but probably go OEM iridium
  5. Hi All, Hoping I can resurrect this thread for an update for 2019? Looking to replace spark plugs in a 3SGE Gen 6 Celica GT (as OP), but a bit unsure of what the best options are. Ideally I just want something I can nip down to the local store for, e.g. a set of Bosch plugs, but different websites seem to come up with completely different recommendations.. I don't do much mileage so probably just looking for copper plugs. Using the Halfords online search tool to look for compatible products brings up 'Bosch 509 Super 4' plugs, any thoughts on those?
  6. Thanks Mike, A quick follow up for anyone searching this in the future - I went to do as you suggested above, started with disconnecting the battery again (had already tried this a couple of times and left overnight) and removed/checked all fuses. Lo and behold, suddenly returned to life! I can only assume that initial guesses were right and it was related to the immobiliser, removing the fuses maybe gave the ECM the reboot it needed. It did struggle a bit starting up first time but seems ok since. So if anyone else experiences this problem - I recommend persevering with disconnecting battery and remove/check/replace fuses. Still a bit of a mystery exactly what happened, but glad its sorted.. Thanks for everyone's advice. A
  7. Thanks Mike - Tried disconnecting the battery for a while last night - didn't fix the problem unfortunately (vid below). I'll try once more when I get in, can't hurt. Vid link (youtube): Is this an issue which sounds familiar? Hope I'm not barking up the wrong tree. But timing seems too much of a coincidence to be unrelated to ECM somehow..
  8. Hi All, I'm having a 'mare with my 1997 (gen 6) celica at the moment, and wondering if anyone can help.. The battery died a while back, got around to replacing it and started up first time fine. However I then left a few days and tried to start up again to actually drive it, wouldn't start.. Battery is definitely ok, engine seems to turn over fine, just won't start. So I'm guessing this is the immobiliser kicking in; Could the transponder in the master key somehow have become unlinked to the ECM? If so, what is the process to get the key linked up again?? Really appreciate any advice anybody can give! Thanks, A
