  1. Hello Bob, Thanks very much for taking the time and trouble in posting this very clear description and advice. It looks like it will be the SC16HR11, as the best choice of spark plug. Thanks again for sharing your knowledge. Kind regards, Bob Sutton.
  2. Urgent appeal to Devon Aygo and flash22 I am thinking of changing the spark plugs on my 2016 Aygo. This afternoon I gave my local Toyota dealer my reg. number and he said the plugs I need are Denso SC16HR11. I found this thread this evening and now I am very confused. Is the local dealer well out of date with that ref. number, if Devon Aygo says it should be K20HR11 and flash22 says the equivalent iridium, should be IKH20TT. I don't want to be a Doubting Thomas, as I have always found both contributors to be very accurate and generous with their knowledge. Any help would be greatly appreciated, again. Kind regards, Bob Sutton.
  3. Hello Everyone, Thanks to all who read my post and especially to those, who took the time and trouble to respond. Your input is helpful, reassuring and much appreciated. Kind regards, Bob Sutton.
  4. Hello Everyone, I bought my 2016 Aygo x-pression, in April this year, with full main dealer service history and 23780 miles on the clock. I immediately had it serviced by my local Toyota dealer. I have regularly checked the engine oil level and it has taken one third of a litre of oil (0W-20) to bring it up to the full mark on the dipstick, although it has only done 3300 miles, since that service. I thought this was rather a lot of oil and found a similar post on the forum in which Devon Aygo, thought it might be a blocked PCV, amongst other suggestions. I don’t drive the car hard but on a mixture of rural roads and motorways. with very little city driving. I would like know: 1) if my oil consumption is considered excessive, 2) if the attached photo does correctly identify the PCV, 3) if this valve simply pulls out of the housing in the cylinder head. Any comments or views would be welcome. Kind regards, Bob Sutton.
  5. Hello Chris, Just seen your post and wonder if this article could be the answer to your problem. The attached screenshot which I have marked up with the text box, is taken from the very bottom of the main article. I hope this helps. Could you keep in touch on how you get on. Kind regards, Bob Sutton 312228544_ToyotaKRseriesengines.webarchive
  6. Many thanks to Mike and Lee, for sharing their in-depth knowledge and taking the time to reply so quickly, to my post . Kind regards, Bob Sutton.
  7. Hello everyone, I am thinking of trading in my old 2008 Aygo for a 2016 x-pression, which I have my eye on. My understanding is the 2016 x-pression does not come (as standard) with sat-nav, but can the audio system be upgraded to include sat-nav. I thought I read somewhere it is NOT possible to upgrade, but any comments would be gratefully received. If it is possible, any idea of cost and complexity? Kind regards, Bob Sutton.
  8. Hello Neil, Good luck with it. Don't forget the washers as mentioned by furtula and please post how you get on. Kind regards, Bob Sutton.
  9. Hello again Neil, Just a little more background information for you. I bought my 2007 plate Aygo in July 2015 with just 11,000 miles on it. At first, I found the gear change to be very clunky, notchy, difficult etc. but though it was just me. After two weeks and trying to change my driving style (e.g. double-declutching, blipping the throttle on the down-change plus other small tweaks), I decided to change the transmission oil. I used Fuchs Titan Sintofluid FE SAE 75W Synthetic (from Opie Oils). It made very little difference, if any at all. I have got used to the gearbox. The car has done 36,000 miles now. Mine is worse when it's cold. I cannot rush the gear change between first and second. I now tend to change up at lower revs (approx 2000 rpm). The difference is, mine has always been like this but it would appear, yours is deteriorating. I really hope you get a resolution to your problem and one which doesn't cost and arm and a leg. Kind regards, Bob Sutton.
  10. Hello Neil, I am not sure how to advise you (I can drive them, but not fix them). Perhaps other, more knowledgeable members, will come forward to help you. It's obviously a lot cheaper to change the oil than the gearbox. I hope you get some help soon. Kind regards, Bob Sutton.
  11. Hello Neil, A quick search, threw up an item posted on YouTube by a Polish forum member kaliope (Paul) who has done some very helpful and informative videos. Check him and this out http:// https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5o8feLY6b0 Kind regards, Bob Sutton.
  12. Thanks to both Scott and Mike for taking the time and trouble to reply to my post. Will check these items out. Kind regards, Bob Sutton.
  13. Hello Everyone, My wife drives a 2007 D-4D Yaris, which has been dealer serviced from new, using a service plan. She has now decided to stop this service plan (due to cost) and I have inherited the task of doing the routine services. I drive and DIY service, a 2008 petrol Aygo and found the Service Data Sheet posted by adilmon on Jan 16th 2017 to be a really useful item. The link the Aygo Service Data Sheet is here >>> https://www.toyotaownersclub.com/tags/aygo/ <<<< I have tried to find something similar for the Yaris but without success. Any help would be appreciated.
  14. Hello Everyone and particularly Neil (aka Agent Orange). Just an update to my post dated 22nd March 2017. I finally had a little time to try and repair the electrical connector which was detaching itself from the glass. It might not be pretty but saved me a shed-load. Thanks Neil for the Plastic Padding tip. Kind regards, Bob Sutton.
  15. Hello Everyone, Thank you so much to all who read my post and especially to those, who took the time and trouble to respond. The outcome for me: I will use 5W-30 fully synthetic and Opie Oils will get my order. I have purchased from them before, when they advised me on which transmission oil to use. They were very good then and I am expecting nothing less now. Thanks again for all your input. Kind regards, Bob Sutton.
