  1. Past hour
  2. Also a good idea to clean the throttle body and the idle air control valve. YouTube has some good videos about cleaning the Toyota IAC valve.
  3. Ok. Tks for your help. Will post with result when known.

    Have a look on Youtube. There are plenty of helpful "How to clean MAF sensor" videos. There are specialist products for MAF cleaning.
  5. Today
  6. Redline MT90 vs Motul Gear 300

    It's a free fix really, just have to be careful on how much you adjust because if it is over adjusted, it can be just as bad as under adjusted really so it makes the clutch ride out a lot more. If it's the standard clutch, my one had a tendency to slip a little on hills especially when I found out it was quite worn down too. Most just get the OEM flywheel machined, including myself which will work perfect anyway. Feel free to PM if you need some ideas for exhausts, I got that all covered!
  7. Thanks for your prompt reply trentmeyer23. No, I have not and what would be your recommended cleaner and procedure for this? BTW, I am not a motor mechanic just a do it yourselfer. But I can follow easy instructions.

    Have you cleaned the MAF sensor?
  9. Hi there We have a 2008 ZR6, 135000 gentle kms, driven in country by mature aged lady driver, mainly on short trips to work, about 6kms one way. For the last few months, intermittently, the information light comes on along with engine malfunction light, and VSC warning message on dash and VSC/traction light on as well. Sometimes it clears itself, and usually comes on when making a turn after stopping at an intersection, or can come on going around a bend, It may come on when you start the car and then not come back on next time we start the car. My son has equipment to read the code and looked up the error code and it says it is the engine fan warning. The engine fan appears to work as expected, comes on when engine hot and shuts off as expected. No unusual readings on temperature guage. Any suggestions as what to do now? Have a good day Cheers Kevin

    Amazon will be opening very soon here in Oz, it would be very good competition to SCA and Repco. Once they start selling good range of auto products like in US, why not it would be an easy choice for everyone.

    Ooh excellent, thank you...
  12. Coolant

    Did you you know about the orange 10 years Nulon coolant? Just now I saw it on Nulon website. I've never seen it at SCA before. It could be a direct replacement with Toyota's long life coolant . Toyota also made an ad just for their coolant, it is actually very good ad, especially the end part:
  13. When completing a one hour or more drive open road motoring when stopped the motor does not idle at normal revs but around 1500 RPM up and down in the rev range regularly and sometimes sounds like it wants to choke out. Water temperature is normal. Turning off the motor for a few mins and restarting sees the idle normal at normal revs. This never happens for city driving always idle normal at traffic lights etc. Anyone with some ideas of what maybe causing this annoying problem? Thanks.
  14. I have a 1980 special edition celica in the shed but can't find any info just wondering are they common.
  15. XV70

    Yes, very much a soft launch. I think that Toyota is focussing upon disposing of the 2017 model while building up stocks of the 2018 model. Looks like the SX and SL versions get the sportier suspension settings. Good excuse to go for a test drive in the different versions.
  16. Cabin air filter - which one?

    All good fellas. I will talk to our service guy and get it sorted. Cheers.

    This is a video for the 2GR-FE coolant drain. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRRpnMcA6vU
  18. Coolant

    Thank you, the reason I asked about additional drain plugs, after I saw this video: Then I was like... Ooh there is more drain plugs....
  19. Redline MT90 vs Motul Gear 300

    Thanks you blokes, some great info here! I've ordered the magnetic gearbox plug and I'll get the Motul 300 oil aswell. I'll get it serviced and get the mechanic to change the gearbox oil for me I reckon. Might do the clutch play adjustment myself first, the article on that is excellent! Squalled there's no real issue with the clutch, the first week I had the car I went for a drive that ended up in heavy traffic incuding hillstarts and I was worried I burnt the thing. Now I'm super paranoid about not riding it and I've gotten much more comfortable driving the car. Must admit I'm not totally sold on the idea of lightened flywheel and the benefits, so I'll be leaving that for now and just play around. Probably do headers/exhaust soon. Thanks boys.
  20. XV70

    The XV70 got a soft launch yesterday fellas/lasses! So excited! https://www.themotorreport.com.au/car-article/motor-news/2018-toyota-camry---price-and-features-for-australia-116409.html?trackLink=homePageNews5 It looks like such a good deal! I am concerned about 2 things though...firstly the SL grade has only a 6 speaker system...secondly...would anyone know if it gets the same suspension setup as the Sx or is it the softer regular version?
  21. 'Screech' When Turning

    Michelin Energy XM2 ? My original 2010 XM2 tyres liked to squeal on turns, when they got a bit low. Even with 4-5 mm left on the thread. They lasted a fair while, but were quite hard.
  22. cleaning windscreen

    I not fussed with Windex and I use ArmorAll Glass Cleaner.
  23. 'Screech' When Turning

    Thanks for the reply. Done some homework and I noticed it depends on the speed. You can take the same corner slower and it won't do it, which leads me to believe its tyres screeching. Apparently alignment can be a cause.
  24. Coolant

    TY Ashley, very helpful info as usual Keep Well and Safe on the black stuff KAA

    How's the proxes working for you? I've seen people pairing Toyo with another tire brand for the front and rear. how's

    Finally got around to checking the manual. Apparently there are 3 drain cocks. Attached document may be of some further assistance Toyota and Lexus 35l V6 2GRFE coolant bleeding trick.doc

    I want to fit a dual diaphragm brake booster to my 2013 79 series V8 Ute, can anyone suggest the best option and also if braised lines should be fitted at the same time?
