  1. the fact that the 100amp fuse had blown to me suggests that your father has jump started the battery the wrong way around. so if i was you id check ALL the fuses on the car and see if anymore have blown. you need to be 100% sure all the fuses are ok before replacing any parts.
  2. do people really get caught out with this scam? i honestly dont see how people could be so naieve (sp?). there are loads and loads of them on auto trader you can spot them easy as they all say email me only and have there email address plastered all over the add. if you do like the yaris in question have a look on ebay you mite just find the genuine car for sale by the genuine seller. i was looking at minis a while ago and found that the people doing dodgey adds on autotrader had nicked the pics off ebay adds. when i buy a car i 1. phone up and speak to the seller in person and ask as many questions as possible. 2. then hpi the car, not a crappy data check for 4 quid a proper full hpi. 3. view the car and and check it over properly, just coz its hpi clear doesnt mean its not been in a smash (if you dont know what your looking for take somebody along who does. if you dont know anybody then pay the likes of the RAC or AA or a good mechanic to check it. 4. if im happy negotiate a price. 5. go to collect the car and pay for it. never ever pay for a car with out seeing it and checking it!
  3. she could ring her insurance and explain her situation and ask?

    iirc in the panel under your steering wheel to the left theres a smallish compartment that opens, give it a good hard tug and itll come off, behind there you should see the connector for the code reader.

  8. anyone know where i can pick up some wiring diagrames for a starlet gt turbo and also engine manual or at least torque wrench settings. thanks
  9. hi, i need some help please. a friend of mine is fitting a celica gt engine and gearbox into the rear of a mini.hes using a 1992 celica gt 2.0ltr setup. now we could for gearchange reasons do with using a mr2 gearbox, due to the gearchange setup. now is the mr2 box the same as the celica one? with ref to mounts size etc. need to be sure on this one. thank you in advance
  10. right this has been covered so sorry to ask it again as im unsure of the outcome. right all i need to know will a starlet turbo engine fit into a paseo. im not worried about wiring, gearbox differences etc all i need to know is if i get a starlet turbo engine will it bolt straight into a paseo using the same mounts and driveshafts. if your wondering why im planning on fitting a starlet turbo engine into a classic mini and i have a paseo with a decent engine so im thinking fitting the paseo engine then in a year fitting a starlet turbo engine but id like it to just drop in.
  11. hi, just wondering about the tuning capabilities of the starlet turbo engines. ive read on here that they have about 133bhp, so what can be done to get them to about 180bhp? the engine wont be in a starlet and wont be using the original ecu. thanks in advance carl
  12. does that mean youve got one nah nah n nah nahhh, or youve got one you might be willing to sell. lol pm sent
  13. hi i posted a topic about 4age into a paseo anyway ive decided not to go down that route and decided to repair the original engine. has anyone got a 5efe complete engine or ideally just a short motor obviously needs to be a good one. i read in another topic that somebody said they had a 5efhe bits and im defo interested in this and would like to know more if any ones got thebits i fink it was toyotasera.co.uk. but i didnt want to hijack the other topic regards carl
