Hi guys,

I've noticed my Sportivo has left a small spot of red/pink fluid on the garage floor.

As it was located at the front drivers side I'm presuming it is power steering fluid.

Has anyone else experienced this type of leak on their Sportivo?

Would it be best to take it to a dealer or can anyone recommend a professional mechanic in Sydney who knows what they are doing and uses genuine parts?

Thanks in advance :)

Any mechanic can use genuine parts and should be able to diagnose the leak. It is likely coming from the steering pump or rack area.

Thanks for your reply mate.

Do you think it's worth going to the dealer for this fix?

My usual mechanic is on holidays and don't know of any other reputable ones that are local.

Keep an eye on the fluids, keep them topped up and get your mechanic to look when they get back. Not worth going to a dealer.

Thanks again mate.

Power steering fluid is currently on minimum.

Can you recommend a mechanic in the St George area?

      Hi guys, i just replaced my engine oil with 6.1L Nulon 5w-30 SN Long Life. But the oil level is higher than the high dot on the dipstick when the engine was stone cold. Just wondering what’s the best time to use the dip to check the oil level? Stone cold or after warming up? Cheers

      Seeing as I haven't introduced her yet, meet Niko Niko! Or Niko or NiNi for short. It's a weird name but here me out.
      Toyota is a Japanese brand (obviously)
      Niko/Niko Niko is the Japanese word for Smile/Smiley
      The Aurion always looks like it's got a smile on it's face
      I'm also Asian and what some might call a "Weeaboo"

      Anyway, this is my car and she is very fast considering she looks like what a grandparent would drive.
      I've owned this car for a short time (Less than a month) and it's honestly one of the best purchases I've made! I love it, my friends love it! Commodore drivers hate it and that's okay with me!

      I'm not sure where I want to go with this car (in terms of build) I was thinking something that I could bring to meetups and have it turn a few heads so if there's anyone within that department let me know!

      Im currently in need of a stock or sports Toyota Corolla Sportivo Exhaust. Not the whole system but mainly just for the muffler. If anybody based in Sydney has one in stock and is no longer in need of the exhaust. Please PM me. Admin delete if not allowed. 
      Thanks guys!
