  5. hi m8 they are a good reliable car and pretty solid only things i found wrong with my 1996 1.8 cdx is the electric window motor regulators tend to fail around the 100000ish mark particuarly the drivers window water pumps are prone to going aswell sometimes little niggly alarm problems but otherwise shouldint let you down ive had my 1.8 for about 8 years its on the 150000 miles mark and still going strong ive only had to replace the normal wear and tear stuff like tyres batteries a ball joint a wheel bearing etc still on original shocks starter altenator back brakes also they are very cheap to buy with all the extras aircon etc just make sure its got service history and the cambelts changes and you should be good let us know what you go for m8 they are very good on the mpg aswell even the 2.0 engines inluding the gt

  6. hi all i own a carina e gt with the same engine as celicas so thought i would post my question here my cambelt broke and was wondering is the 3sge engine a non intereference engine meaning if my belt snapped it will not effect my engine and i will only need the belt done the AA bloke who came out said to me all my internals will be busted i asked him several times are you sure because i was sure i read on the toyota carina owners site that it would not damage my engine

    cheers all any help would be appriecated also is it possible to do the job myself


  7. hi all i need a new lower ball joint for my 1.8 carina e 1996 my question is is it easy to fit as it says in the haynes manual you have to remove hub when i look under i can see 4 bolts 1 at the top of balljoint and 3 attached underneath to lower arm has anyone done this before and how easy was it will i have to remove hub as that seems a lot of hassle just for a balljoint any help would be grateful :blink:

  8. My old 97 Carina had recently developed alarm problems...the blasted siren used to just go off for no reason! A mechanic at my local Toyota garage told me that it was probably the rechargeable battery in the siren that had died. He disconnected the unit by removing the radiator water overflow bottle and reaching through a small hole in the chassis. From within, he pulled out a loom of wiring with a connector that ran down inside the front offside bumper panel and disconnected it. This stopped the main issue, but as he had also commented, the alarm kept chirping at random, so I unfastened a portion of the wheeel well trim, reached inside and unbolted the siren and removed it, then dismantled it and yanked the offending battery out!

    The silence was golden!!

    Hopefuly you'll be able to do similar and resolve your problem too!
