    Oil Leak

    HI i have what seems to be oil all sprayed up under the drivers front side wheel arch .I first noticed it when i went to get in to the car their was some oil on the ground just under neath the stared of the drivers side sil .Their was no oil under neath the car its self.their seems to be tiny little splashes of oil down the whole drivers side of the car as if i drove through some oil.I am just wondering are the shocks oil or gas but to be honest the shocks are fine and their is no oil on the shock its self just the wheel arc.this was last saturday i noticed it and since then their has been no oil on the ground since.But after driving the car when i check the wheel arc it still is wet and oily .Have checked the engine oil and all is well their not losing oil their.

  5. I had same problem with my 2.2 Avensis, it's not matter of gearbox oil or clutch plate or whatsoever, the gear lever must be adjusted by Toyota service and car will surely run perfectly from start up even at low temp. When this problem occured to my car they told me second speed gear has to be replaced, I did not believe and insisted to give a deep look to adjustment of lever and I was right. This mornig temperature was -2°C, my car is parked outdoor and all the gear was performing pretty well!Bye read my post right i never said clutch plate had any thing to do with gears sticking :censor: what are u talking about here. the gear lever must be adjusted by Toyota service.minus 3 here in dublin car started fine and slid out of first a gear oil change sorted my problem out.
  6. hi ruizink left car in for full service with mr t.replaced gear oil they said it was manky.feels like a new gear box 100 per cent better.after leaving the car in about an hour later i got a phone call saying that i have a creaking clutch which i all ready knew about mr t been mr t said they can replace the clutch master cylinder for 220 euro .i told them i live with the squeak . oil ,air,and plugs checked lights and levels adjusted hand brake checked and cleaned brakes cleaned out washer jets replaced gear oil rotated wheels and balanced hover and washed grand total 296 euro .gear box feels so smooth now. :D
  7. currently havening the same problem when starting on a cold morning comeing out of first gear is stiff going in to second is grand then third is stiff .after 3 or 4 mins its ok.car is booked in to MR T in the morning for full service they said they will have a look at it .its a 1.8 t3x 2003 new shape will report back tomorrow .
  8. not too sure but in the old 89 to95 hi ace it was behind the passengers seat.open side sliding door should be their covered by trim.
  9. i HAVE A BUTTON ON MY HI-ACE WHICH SAYS IDLE UP START THE VAN AND PUT IT ON THE REVS JUST SHOOT UP . HAVEN'T A CLUE WHAT ITS FOR.
  10. hi people have noticed the last few times when running the air con on journeys of around 25 miles. after parking up and on return to car their is some water on the ground under the car not a puddle less the half a foot by half a foot . any ideas where it is coming from as i said only happens when air con was running. thanks in advanced gavin.
  11. HI EVERYBODY done my oil consumption test toped up my oil 1000 miles ago .hit the 1000 mile mark to day checked it to day only had to add 300ml.so i think thats not to bad for my 1.8 vvti 2003 model with 86000 miles on it.what do u guys think about that.thanks in advanced gavin.
  12. as regards hiding keys to me car and the other half's car i just leave them on the kitchen table their only run of the mill cars dont think any one would want to steel them.if any one did break in for them i just want them in and out .dont want to be woken up with a bar to the face in the dead of night .2 lil kids to think about as well.
