  1. Hey everyone im in the process of replacing my SCV on 2008 2.0 d4d avensis engine code 1adftv however i am unsure of the torque specs of the 2 bolts holding the SCV onto the high pressure fuel pump i managed to get my hands on the old torque specs for the older SCV replacement on the older 2.0 d4d 1CD engine and on blueprint repair page they say it is 13nm for the 2 bolts however i am wondering is it the same for the newer 1 ad engine and pump considering it is running denso hp3 pump???
  2. sounds like wastegate alright id start from there
  3. SCV suction control valve replace now i had this problem until i got in touch w my friend whos a mastertech and ge said its this apparently too there was a TSB from toyota for this issue get yur part number iff your old SCV on the high pressure pump look them up on ebay i paid 55 n my car atarts in minus 5 now no problem before i was same as you maybe 10 to 15 attemps to no avail now it starts like ut did when it was new
  4. well first thing to check would be your connections and your earths check for corrosion and clean if necessary and then if not it coukd actually be the starter or the solenoid failing i took a starter out if a hilux for my friend after it no longer wanted to start even though power was there and connections ok turned out to be solenoid which we fixed and i put it back in for him
  5. get 1 litre of brake fluid and bleed your brakes or get someone to bleed all 4 calipers on each wheel excess air in the system will give you a false or spongy pedal however if this does not solve the priblem id be looking what pads and discs were used cheap mid range or high end an inspection may be necessary its not uncommon for 2 to 3 week old pads and discs to glaze or become innefective
  6. SCV or suction control valve meters the fuel from the fuel filter housing to the high pressure pump now this cpuld be yur issue it is one if the symtoms but also another symptom is hard to start excess ceanking firing for few seconds n shutting back off i would also look at your turbo see what shape the fins are in check for play
  7. SCV suction control valve replace ut now toyota had a rsb a while back for this problem however it was not a recall as far as im aware the tsb involved reprogramming of the scv to rectify the problem uf not then replacement us onky option im afraud i had this problem like you i changed my pkugs fuel filter the lit to no avail ebded up being SCV now it starts in minus 5 or lower in the mornings furst tip id replace this first n go from there
  8. yano valeo are not bad at all just when you think its a toyota genuine part in the box you will often examine to see its in fact valeo i cant fault valeo wgen ut comes to toyota parts so get the valeo unit if needs be n tbh this nonsense denso is better than valeo or bosch is better than denso is rubbish im a mechanic n ive seen certain parts vendors will make goid parts replacements in a particular field n others will be no good in that field but excel in others example denso alternator v good bosch one not as good but bosch injector in my opinion better n more refined than denso
  9. yes its very very good and most dealerships will use it its a v high standard wurth super RTV silicone gasket on amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/Wurth-Silicone-Adhesive-sealing-Compound/dp/B077BC2CJF/ref=asc_df_B077BC2CJF/?tag=googshopuk-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=404437550154&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=4021281806971196624&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=m&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9047196&hvtargid=pla-865437814762&psc=1&tag=&ref=&adgrpid=89736174921&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvadid=404437550154&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=4021281806971196624&hvqmt=&hvdev=m&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9047196&hvtargid=pla-865437814762
  10. Hi everyone i have 2008 toyota avensis 2.0d4d 1adftv engine last year i replaced alternator during thebreplaceming i noticed a small oil leak from above where the alternator sits on the timing chain cover i have been cleaning this leak every service and keeping an eye on it however i was thinking next time im down there to change my water pump i might rub some wurth silicone gasket sealer along it n maybe hopefully seal this leak as i dont really want to go ripping out injectprs and valve cover just to take off the chain cover and replace gasket opinions i do all my own work im an apprentice technician i resealed my sump on my 2007 1.6vvti using wurth sealer n it hasnt leaked since
  11. Hi everyone 2008 1adftv 2.0 d4d avensis sitting stock at 126hp pulls good but friend of mine is professional remapper and said hell remap mine choice of 2 options ecomap 126bhp to 140bhp OR power map to 168bhp was tginking of going for the power map and then pairing it w catback exhaust and twin letterbox tips opinions??? ive seen them mapped before and ik there are drawbacks ie lifespan etc im mechanic myself engine gets anything it needs
  12. i bet its the connector under drivers seat rh side had trouble w this on 2010 t27 brought it to diagnostic tech n he said connector wiring under drivers seat comes loose from sliding drivers seat up n down over time he just soldered the connection so it wouldnt come loose again check that connector first
  13. yeah i have a pair in my shed but im like yourself im wondering has anyone done ut yet on tge avensis do they fit ok
  14. could be a fog light switch some lads dont buy the stock they just slap in a switch a relay n a set of fogs couldve been that at some point in its life
  15. yes good feeling but i dont like waiting in silence for other problems to arrive after replacing the turbo i still got it hard to start the car occasionally usually after it sat dor a while or cold freezing night come out next morning n itd be hard to start would go to 900 rpm n drop back off to 0 eventualky it would fire also was getting uneven idle and engine surging ive now just replaced the scv with a new one and im hoping this will solve my issue so far since i bought this car ive done alternator turbocharger SCV 2 rear calipers discs pads and 4 services 2 full incl brake fluid and power steering fluid change 183000 miles on the clock clutch and flywheel probably at 240000 mile
