  1. More than 2 yrs ago for sure since I've never changed it and I think it was replaced by the previous owner.. however I would like to change that..any how tos? Ok, so yesterday I just replaced the Diesel Filter ( it was quite intuitive) and this time I cleaned the EGR once again and went a little bit far ie cleaned the throttle body and all the passageways into to block. It already started feeling more responsive and mpg started climbing again.. Hey this EGR is getting more demanding by the day. Even though I could feel a huge difference in the performance, I also felt the engine would leave me when flooring when cold which I might put it down to ecu mapping as a safe mechanism.. good to see you got sorted, well as said above never drive above 2k rpm on a cold engine but to try and keep the egr from blocking try and give it a blow out every few weeks......on a quiet motorway....if you know what i mean, When flooring, I never really meant to hammer it but just push it a bit after heating up the engine... one can't imagine the difference it makes by scooping out all that sooth of her nostrils..

  4. its mostly town driving since we've got no motorways here..I've cleaned the egr twice in the last year, infact I had posted my first try with pics to serve as a how to for others..anyway it did resolve the 2800 slug moment but after 6 months it comes back...this time i don't know whether its the egr again or the fuel filter..which I didn't replace for the last 2yrs..Anyways how shall I do taht?
  5. Here in Malta we have no option mate..it's the low sulphur 15ppm, so much for customer's ample choice! Anyways I've put a Slick 50 Injector Cleaner a couple of months ago ..but now it's getting more irritating as the weather;s getting colder...
  6. hello BLACKRS you'd think in complex (EGR; fuel fillter; injectors; air filter; air in the fuel injection system)--the problem must be there. cheers/Igor But why does it happen when cold?
  7. Guyz, I would appreciate some help since I received no feedback in my last plea for help... Practically the situation is happening whenever the engine is cold and occasionally happens even when the engine is warmed up... EGR? nope I've cleaned it...could it be the diesel filter ? (even though no check light is on)?
  8. Ok, first of all thanks for your feedback guys.. secondly I really don't know from where to start..maybe I can try the cheapest solutions.. Here in Malta we don't have any choice..it's just plain Low-Sulphur Diesel and that's what you'll get but I highly suspect that that's the culprit.. So just to give you an overview mine has clocked 74kmiles and have had all scheduled services done in UK every 10kmiles and if all done well (namely U-Drive, Inchcape, KPR and Octagon at Berkshire) am pretty sure they're serious and followed the service replacement guidelines to the book. If that's the case the fuel filter must have been changed as indicated every 6 yrs or 40miles whichever comes first which surely my car have done at octagon.. Albeit this when I imported the car I noticed the fuel filter harness was unplugged and when I connected it the warning light stayed off which meant it either loosen during the long trip or else they simply forgot to plug it in. And that's giving me another indication the fuel filter might have been changed.. As for the past 2yrs I drove in Malta my regular 6month services included changing twice the engine oil + filter, Air filter, Cleaned EGR Twice, Gear Oil Changed, Pads all round, which shows the pampering I'm giving her to keep her in good nick.. So the question stands.. How can I know the fuel filter is to replace if the lamp's still off? From where can I start to identify the problem..cheap fixes being first :P
  9. I already had my EGR valve cleaned (as shown in my previous threads) last one only goes back to a couple of months ago. Now, i've got a different problem, while accelerating hard 2nd or 3rd I notice a non-constant pull every 500rpm or so near the 2500rpm mark..Got any ideas?
  10. Till now I saw a 15% increase in mileage. Are you sure you plugged back all the connections back to their place? yea i put everything back ok, car is driving perfect and mpg is way up, did yous disconnect the battery to reset the ecu or anything ? nope, I didn't disconnect the battery.. was in with Mr.T yesterday, egr valve coming up on the computer now when i put it back on there was a slight bit of bubbling coming from it, this stopped after a minute or two, iam wondering if maybe she needs to be tightened a bit more or if i need a new gasket ? also instead of using carb-cleaner (i hope iam not going to be laughed at for this) i used white sprits ???? does this matter ??? the car is running perfect.......... Guys I maybe just being paranoid but lately I'm noticing that whenever the car is not warmed up (ie gauge is not indicating half the cold/hot reading) and I would floor it (yes I know I shouldn't do it) the acceleration hangs out abit every 1000 revs or so, but this is doesnt happen when it's warmed up.. Question being..is there something from the ecu restricting the acceleration or the EGR is at it again? I've just cleaned it again after 3 months since it was manifesting the same 3k rpm hangabout and got it fixed with the cleanup. Another one.. is it only the EGR which fouls up since I couldn't not notice that the culprit might not be the EGR but any other passage from/to it ..anyone can shed some light on some exploded views of the 1.4 D4D?
  11. Can anyone owning a 1.4D4D Corolla tell me whether he ever felt his clutch pedal much harder to press unlike other petrol engine driven cars? If no, can you tell me how to solve this, (without changing the clutch slave cylinder)?
  12. Pals, I've got a couple of issues with my corolla 1.4 D4d 72kmiles which I would like to fix myself if possible, here they are.. a ) Humming sound mostly audible when keeping engine revved to 2krpm and with windows closed. b ) Creaky sounds from front brake calipers (I already tried greasing all these bits including spraying some lube inside the piston lining aswell but this only silenced the noise for a week). c ) Creaky sounds from clutch slave cylinder from inside footwell. (Sound is temporarily eliminated by pressing the clutch pedal and spraying some lube inside the slave cylinder...this solution only lasts a week aswell) This is my final shot before turning my corolla to a Toyota Repair Centre and wait for a hefty bill. All help is greatly appreciated

  15. This type of usage causes the EGR valve to clog quickly which could explain the issue :) Ok guyz I got it :D I cleaned the valve during the weekend and it's pulling smoothly through all gears. Here's the how to for the 1.4 D4D '05... 1. Remove the engine cover, this just pulls up and unclips. 2. Start taking off the radiator by these 2 bolts (you'll have to tap the radiator's fluid passageway) 3. Then onto the other end, where it gets tricky..especially the bolt opposite the one near the Dipstick. 4. Remove the Dipstick and Black cabling trunking bolts off to gain access to the bolt still holding the radiator to the egr 5. And then it's off 6.Notice the dirty egr opening with black soot 7. and blocked airway to the manifold 8. Clean the soot with a screwdriver or something and get it out of the passageway as much as you can..and give it a good clean with Carb-cleaner and a piece of cloth till it shines....this way 9. and everything back in one piece..you can re-use the same gaskets. You'll surely notice that the engine won't start due to the excess of carb cleaner which has now been gulped by the engine, just give it a crank or two and you'll get it back to life in a jiffy, not without a huge cloud of vapour of the unburnt carb cleaner. It will take a couple of engine starts before it starts firing up as it used to. 10. Now engine is much more willing to pull through all gears and even through low rpms..Mpg has start climbing again :) The fine-print Obviously this is not for the faint hearted, but for those willing to save a buck or two it's worth a try.

  16. I circled the likely location of the EGR valve...I've been searching for that kind of shot since I was too lazy to take a shot of mine :P I'll be doing the thing during the weekened since now I'm averaging a poor 43.7MPG, but no black smoke. is that 43 mpg on your display or have you done the calculations, iav down to 48mpg, although last fill was only 45mpg, so iam really not happy, i always averaged 56mpg so its a big drop, let us know how you get on Yes 43 is the average indicated on my display. However I drive a lot in traffic and its a continous start-stop situation, so mpg suffers alot. No highways unfortunately :(
  17. I'll try to take some shots showing the procedure.. will let you know... :)

  19. While taking a look at this thread http://toyotaownersclub.com/forums/index.p...106241&st=0 I noticed similarities with my engine so this should pretty do it..I'll give it a try during the weekend since the symptoms are pretty much the same aswell so the egr should be the culprit. Big Thanks fir Cabcurtains for pointing it out. Will let u know............
  20. Would prefer to do it myself though..anyone can identify some helpful links or what I should look at ?
  21. Ok Someone can help out with the Rolla's 1.4D4D EGR Valve inspection / removal ?
  22. It happened to me quite a few times but it's really tideous.. I never caught up a pattern but I couldn't not notice that whenever I floor it, it accelerates sharply to 3krpm, hangs there for half a second and then continues its journey up.. Any ideas? Car was always serviced every 6months and is due for her next service this week for oil + inspection. I hope it's not related to the MAF or something expensive of the sort.
  23. I wired the lead to the Rear Plug (Red, Yellow, Black, Yellow) Red and Black being both +ve left and right and got it wired to earth aswell. Just to give you a better idea this is the model I have and I wired the line connector to 2nd plug from the left
  24. Im trying to install an amp to the standard HU W58814 ...Connected the Autoleads PC1-601 but no sound came out.. can you give me the pinouts for the plug of the rear speakers?
