    Hello to all I have a 58 plate sr180 auris and my mpg is rubbish..i mainly do motorway driving..the egr is clean, ive tried 56 mph 60 and 70 etc..im getting 38mpg tops and 32 around town.Would a new shape exhaust help..my car has been serviced and a bottle of injector cleaner...any idea please..i dont carry lots of stuff in the car and tyres are ok too
  5. I had this noise on my avensis.it was down by the clutch pedal..wd40 on the cable !
  6. Sorry..i cant see what car-engine-year . have i missed it
  7. Sometimes a hairline crack on one of the contacts
  8. Cold weather or aircon on or heater on high ?check the mass air flow

    Just a thought.if you had a loose fitting fuel filter..eg..sucking in air somewhere..it would be rough at low revs, but might self seal when its warmed up ? Just a thought !
  10. Possibly a bad earth..water getting into the rear ??

    You dont really need to fill up with v-power fuel.i dont think a fuel company would make or sell bad fuel that damaged your engine.a good long run or decoke or an additive that desolves the build up should do.i hope its not poor compression ?
  12. Small relay switch..small black plastic plug/box...you can see these on ebay ? (auris glow plug timer)
  13. Summer time..glow plug light will still pop up on the dash for 2 seconds or so..not half a second
  14. I have a 58 plate sr180 5 door.Are the black tinted windows factory tinted stick on or tinted/dark glass..or tinted with added stick on ? Mine need re tinting/doing..Any suggestions please.!
  15. Sometimes its a loose fuel filter or somewhere sucking in air
  16. Tthink of it as..180 bhp in the engine and 173 bhp at the tyre/wheel ?

    I have an idea off a good mechanic.some engine/decoke/egr additive to fuel cleaners do actually work, but you need to check out the temperature that they need to reach to do there bit.some fuel additives will make your car run at a higher combustion, you just need to be aware to give your car a good run in a lower gear and dont keep adding to your fuel tank all the time.i dont know if the JLM stuff is any good, but there are plenty good write ups.
  18. Just a quick...by the way..i put a post on here ladt week...tail lights wont work..there is a bit of nonsense between bulbs that are advertised as the correct bulbs.i ended up taking them all out and put a pair back at a time...to see what buld did what.a 2 person job.hope it helps

    Please keep us all informed.i have read that adfitives to fuel dont really clean the egr and the best way is to do it yourself.i have poor but not bad mpg, so im looking forward to see if its your problem.i know there is a post on here saying cleaning their egr gave them better mpg, but its good to have lots of info...good luck

    Hi..i have owned a avensis 2.2 ltr 55 plate for the last 5 years, not as much power as the sr180, but was pretty good.i now have a 58 plate sr180, ive had this for 3 weeks but only driven it for the last 2 days, a bit more power, easy to notice compared to the avensis, so i think you have a little problem.is it bad turbo lag or egr..i hope i dont get the same problem, but i have noticed the poor return in mpg.the avensis was 42 to 54 on aversge and higher on a long run, sr180 is only 34mpg at the moment.mu sr180 58 plate, plenty of poke and easy to get a squirt of power.
  24. Gerg..youre the main man..lol..i took out the light clusters each side.changed every bulb..i had checked the w16w first, because ebay sellers etc advertised w16w as side light bulbs..but gerg was correct.my side lights came after changing all bulbs.my rear side lights are in the cluster...R5W..for future ref..many thanks for making me do the job propper style.ha
  25. Forgot to say thanks..i need a picture of what bulb fits in what slot.numbers on google for certain bulbs arent the same information as ebay etc
