  1. Thanks Flash, I'll have a look at that and also the PM contents. Thanks for your help.
  2. Hi, I intend installing a new SKF cam chain kit in our late 2009 1.0 Yaris with the 1kr FE engine as there is definitely some noise from it. I'm not perturbed about doing the job but can anyone confirm whether it is possible to leave the sump in situ when removing the cam chain cover? I have seen some mention somewhere that this is possible but don't want to risk breaking anything if it is not. Obviously, leaving the sump in situ removes one less item to potentially leak. I can easily make up a tool to lock the crank but has anyone used a high torque Impact gun to remove th
  3. Thanks all, I removed and carefully cleaned the throttle body but mistakenly said that I cleaned the MAF. My understanding is that my 2009 has no separate MAF, it certainly has no throttle cable. Obviously drive by wire. If the weather holds today I'll have a look at the plugs. My understanding is that the original specified Densos ( SK20HR 11 ) have been superseded by DENSO Spark Plug [K16R-U11] and the NGK equivalent is BKR5EYA-11 . There doesn't seem anything ominous in the noise from the engine but I am surprised at how much mechanical noise there is from it.
  4. The car has paperwork showing a service including plugs less than 1k miles ago . The air cleaner has definitely been renewed but I never accept a service receipt as accurately reflecting work done. MAF cleaned today If the plugs are a likely issue I will take them out tomorrow and physically check. Any particulatr brand and ref no recommended? I normally go for NGK Thanks Darryl
  5. Hi, I'm after a little advice please. I bought a 2009 1.0 litre Yaris this week and although it has done 90k it's in good condition and plenty of service history. I have noticed that coming off idle, when the car reaches about 1500 rpm the engine stumbles a little and then with a few more revs clears up completely. I have taken the throttle body off and cleaned it carefully with a toothbrush and carb cleaner but the issue still remains. The air cleaner was new. It isn't a major niggle but I would like to sort it if possible. Additionally, I gave our old H
  6. Excellent, thanks for the prompt reply Stan.👍
  7. Hi, I've recently bought a 2009 Yaris 1.0 TR and joined this forum at the same time for help and advice. Will my car require a radio code if the battery is disconnected? I've searched the internet and there is conflicting info out there whereby some say no code is needed , alternatively, there are You tube shows videos of people inputting a code into the identical factory radio that I have and some say that the code is the last 3 digits of the Vin number. I realise that I could keep a separate 12v source connected if I needed to change the battery and thus avoid a code but I wo
