  1. Hi, does any one know what yr they finally sorted the oil burning problem on the 1.8 petrol and the diesels which i believe also suffered this problem. Surely the later 20015 models were sorted?
  2. Just had a bad experience with spurious exhaust parts that strain to fit properly. I managed to find a proper brand new font down pipe for my 97 Carina e 1.8 then bought a cheap mid cat section to fit but ended up fitting an old original one that i bought along with a large bag of spares from some one who was scrapping their same motor. Does any one out there happen to have an original cat section that is in excellent condition or even say a Bossal like this which at least looks like the puka thing! Thanks. Cat exhaust.doc
  3. Hi, Your quote > i take the cylinder push rod can't be moved by using your hand, its so stiff. I presume it has got a clutch master cylinder and not one that is cable operated.? So do you mean trying to push the rod which is connected to the clutch pedal once assembled back in to position, trying to press it forward in to the master cylinder is very stiff because it will have some resistance as there is a spring behind the piston. Can you press it back with a screw driver ? But .... if there is no fluid behind the piston it shouldn't be that stiff at all ?
  4. There is a distributor cap and leads on e Bay now. You haven't stated which engine yours is but the link below is for the 1.8 engine. If its a 1.6 there is also one of those but with out any cap or leads ... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Toyota-Carina-E-1-8Petrol-1996-Distributer-Cap-And-Leads-1950016011/182856609533?hash=item2a931a6efd:g:R0YAAOSwIjJZUOj1
  5. It also maybe worth testing the actual clutch pedal disconnected from the master cylinder to see if it is slightly seized after all that's a very high mileage!?
  6. Hi, does any one have a good spare or new front down pipe and or even the catalyst part as well for my Carina E late 97 model. Its the single pipe version shown in the attached parts diagram below. exhaust system.doc
  7. Hi Guys, This could be good news or should I say at least they are available rather than searching around for suspect second hand ones? just by accident, I got myself onto another E bay parts site where I noticed everything was priced in US Dollars and came across (Reconditioned) fuel injectors for both the 1.6 and 1.8 Carina E. I had to correct them first when i questioned him about the colours because the original ones where either blue or grey Yeah? But if these people are located in China and have the facilities to renew parts then the colour of the tops may be irrelevant to the originals so long as the flow rates are correct? im trying get them to link locate the red ones. > Anyone like to comment or correct me on this? >> http://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/e11051.m43.l1123/7?euid=e090023fefd8462d8361709e16b03391&bu=43076474708&loc=http%3A%2F%2Fpages.ebay.com%2Flink%2F%3Fnav%3Ditem.view%26id%3D272316830398%26alt%3Dweb%26globalID%3DEBAY-GB%26referrer%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Frover.ebay.com%252Frover%252F0%252Fe11051.m43.l1123%252F7%253Feuid%253De090023fefd8462d8361709e16b03391%2526bu%253D43076474708%2526cp%253D1%2526sojTags%253Dbu%253Dbu Hi,Thank you for you message,we do the reseach again. 1.6 4A-FE injectors are 23250-16170,they are green color,flow rate are 175cc/min. 1.8 7A-FE injectors are 23250-16160,they are red color,flow rate are 192cc/min.

    WANTED TYRES

    Hi, has anyone got a spare set of near new well known brand of tyre for my Carina E ? Tire size 175 / 70R 14 or 185 / 65R 14
  10. That is not a Carina E exhaust. It must be from the previous older Carina, but thanks all the same!
  11. Hi, has any one got a TOYOTA new - ish full exhaust system for a 97 Carina E 1.8 that they somehow never got round to fitting?
  12. Oh Thanks for that, ill let you know if there is any thing you can help me with in the future. I have a friend who is also thinking of buying a Carina E.
  13. Are you the man himself ---,who operates Nippon parts? Are you the man to look too! This Carina I own has only covered 55000 miles and all the bodywork is good, Still wondering what unnecessary part I could test you with to order!? Have you an email address I could reply too when I am ready?
  14. I'm happy for you! But im afraid ---, we are no further on with what you have got and what you have not. as im sure there would be more people than just me looking in that, would like to know ---, what you have to offer us from your beloved mother Poland!!?
  15. Oh! that's a long way from home. Is that where you are from. Do you mean original Toyota parts from scrap cars ? When are you going back there? Do you live near Liverpool?
