  1. Nice tsport does it have many miles on it? Looks very clean? Seeing your pics reminded me I used to have a zx turbo years ago they are a really good car I feel that if you swapped the auto bluebird for the t sport then you did well Are you keeping the tsport or selling it on?
  2. Your 09 car seems to use a different one to that which I said unfortunately & cheapest I can find is about £125! Still the video I have told you about will give an idea as to where it is although it's not exactly the same as yours Could well be worth asking a garage for a quote how much to clean the one you have unless you feel Confident trying to remove clean and put back together? Sorry I couldn't be of more help
  3. Sorry ignore what I have just said that valve is for just upto 08 your will be different on an 09 plate I'll have a look see if I can find one that's right
  4. It's ok I don't have link but just look on ebay Type yaris d4d egr First one that comes up for £49 is the one you want To fit like I said at start Google Yaris mk2 d4d egr valve removal you will see a video of blue car he's removing from Although he doesent speak you will see clearly where and what he's doing to remove the egr Hope that helps
  5. I think you will be getting code combo. One caused by the other problem? , it depends how long its been going on but hopefully if you are lucky the egr fix will do the trick it's worth a go mate These little diesels are reliable, egr is most common problem
  6. So I was right in thinking it was the egr at fault? Yes it'll play havoc with dpf regen you can buy a replacement off ebay for around £55 may be a better option as they aren't easy to fully clean out internally Cleaning an egr out is part of routine maintenance just like servicing I'm sure once you clean or replace it problems will be gone n car back to normal again Hope it all goes well mate
  7. Sorry to hear its the dpf that's a real pain, I think most re gen when continuously driving over 40 mph for over 15mins, give it a good hard run get the revs up everytime you drive and maybe the problem will resolve itself? The dirty dpf prob caused by previous owner either not running long enough? Or Stop start driving, this is one of the reasons I went for the 08 d4d is there is less to go wrong. Hope you can get it to regen itself it'll save you alot of cash
  8. I was not aware that newer tyres are now like this? I'm sorry, learn something new every day thankyou for the info Tony
  9. The underside of your tsport is very impressive?! I recently bought another one because of the excellent build quality your one looks a bit better underneath than mine it has had one rear sill near inner rear arch welded Still for a car of nearly 20 yrs of age they hold up incredibly well and are very reliable What's not to like 👍
  10. No need to measure? There are wear indicators on all tyres for the 1.6mm minimum tread inside the deepest grooves of the tyres they are like small humps? when you reach this point is time to change them and as above do in axle pairs or replace all 4 with same tyre ideally? Having 2 different kinds of tread on 2 axle pairs can effect noise and how car drives ( more friction generated by one pair than the other pair) mpg can also be effected for the same reason
  11. I have this same problem on a recently bought mk1 tsport, both light but on further inspection both rubber seals for headlight bulbs are missing so hoping can dry out as you say above and replace rubber seals behind and all will be ok fingers crossed
  12. Sorry when you open bonnet take engine cover off the egr cooler is first thing you see between radiator and engine block Cooler is large long squarish silver unit this must be removed and lifted to gain access to the egr underneath Egr isntt very big, it must be removed and cleaned aswell as pipework joining to it You will see how blocked they get from exhaust gas crud use driver to scrape out and some rags, replace may need to top coolant if any is list is a dirty pain of a job to do but worth doing
  13. I'm driving a yaris d4d with same engine you are using on my car it's quite easy to get to. It's underneath the egr cooler big square thing which will be near your exhaust as its cooling exhaust gases which go through the egr valve to be re circulated back in the engine again
  14. Can't read what you have sent but if it's gone from ecu so it's not looking for it should be ok then definatley worth doing the egr I'd say
  15. Egr valve is good place to start either clean or replace? that will be causing the issue I think Because of the design of egr is hard to clean internally properly Good quality diesel like bp ultimate help to keep these things a bit cleaner once on top of. If you have no dpf did you have it mapped out aswell as removed?
