  1. Hi Matey What milage on the clock ? I ve had similar issue recently but with petrol engine and no any alerts have been shown on the scanner screen. Finally the fuel pump has burnt out (along with fuse) and I was forced to change both filter and pump. MrT could not make an access cover under rear seats to change it (!!!!!!!!!!!!) and it is necessary to lover fuel tank. regards \ Igor
  2. Hello there I look for new steering rack for 3rd gen rav (LH drive with \ electrical ) Any advises either original or alternative would be ok ? Any links ? Thanks
  3. hi Jason the main possible reasons are: - injectors are worn down; - engine \ turbo suction filter is clogged; - variable vanes (turbo) are not smoothly rotated relating to current engine load (+ impulse tube with vacuum actuator); - late injection timing; - possible airr suction thru primer buster pump \ fuel filter; - possible electrical errors belong to injection circuit; - EGR clogging; Grey colour is overfueling during combustion stroke. Blue colour - oil burning issue (valve seals \ piston rings) All above is from my personal experience Cheers \ Igor
