  1. TBH, you're better off getting the keys and locks for that replacement ECU and just swapping them all over (Or, if they're not available, sending it back and getting them to swap it for an ECU that has all those bits, mainly the functioning keys, door locks and ignition barrel) That said, flash22 might have the address the transponder codes are stored on the eeprom that you might be able to manually change, but that level of hackery is beyond me!
  2. Ah yes I've seen that; I was amazed people weren't regularly injured or even killed by that! The irony is that's supposedly to *increase* safety!
  3. I think it's pretty safe to say you have a passive system, esp. if you have rubber air stalks - All the euro-spec TPMS have hard aluminium stalks. The Toyota head office for each country gets to choose the specs so not that surprising they're not all the same.
  4. How have you been finding the new limit out of curiosity? There seems to be a lot of mixed feelings about it!
  5. Sorry but the water/steam in the exhaust is not due to humidity in the air, it's just a byproduct of combustion! A bit like us, cars take in fuel and oxygen and combine them to make energy, and produce CO2 and water as waste products. Petrol and diesel are hydrocarbons - Long chains of Carbon atoms with Hydrogens to fill in the blanks: Carbon atoms have 4 'links' that want to glom onto something; with hydrocarbon chains, 2 are usually joined to another carbon atom on either 'side', and the other 2 are joined to hydrogen atoms (Except the end ones, which have 3 H atoms). Oxygen has 2 links and also wants to glom onto things, even more strongly than H and C. It requires energy (i.e. heat) to break the bonds between all the Cs and Hs, but a lot more energy (i.e even more heat!) is released from them making new bonds with Oxygen atoms, so all the H's and C's get split apart, and joined to O's, so you go from lots of C's and even more H's, to lots of 2xH's filling in the O's 2 'links', and 2xO's (With their 2 links each) filling in C's 4 links. (i.e. CO2 and H2O, water)
  6. Err, is that a typo? Absolutely nobody should run leads to the high-voltage battery!!!!
  7. Can you speak to them and get that in writing from them?? That would help a lot!!
  8. My D4D had an EGR and I'm sure that was sending some very sooty air back into the engine, judging by how much was built up inside the EGR valve! I don't know if diesels have PCVs like petrols do tho'
  9. Ack that sucks... so, are they (ASDA) saying it's your fault or just denying it happened at all? I hate it when people are so dishonest, but unless you can get some evidence or witnesses against them, then it's your word against theirs and your insurer will likely not want to push for it. It's never pleasant dealing with insurance claims, but I hope things go better for you!
  10. Don't they do that in direct injection petrols too tho'...??
  11. Why did you loose your excess? If it's the other party's fault your insurance company should claim it back. The insurance doubling it probably unrelated - I didn't even have an accident and mine doubled last year! If you've already started a claim through your insurer, and the other party has admitted fault, then they will be claiming everything from the other party so you should not be out of pocket for anything. In fact, a lot of the time the other party's insurer will often contact you to handle the repair, as they don't want to get taken to the cleaners by your insurer!
  12. TBH you lot are posting so fast and I can't keep up! I'm still on injectors, not gotten to valves yet!!
  13. That's one thing I've always been puzzled by - Almost all diesels are direct injection, but I've rarely heard of them getting the sort of valve-sealing problems from carbon buildup that direct injection petrols seem very prone to!
