What's the exact issue that's happening with your Sportivo? The high idling issue you mentioned before?

Hey squalled once I go into lift around 6000rpm it will engage with no push or power just feels flat and the mechanic I sent it too didn't really have a clue what's wrong with it I guess only sportive owners will understand I just want my solid lift back it is due for a service it's a very slight lift engagement with no push or power just feels flat any ideas?

Could be a few things like lift bolts, the lift screen been clogged in the lift solenoid or even the engine just needing a good service (filters, flush, fluid change etc).

I think Toyota should be able to diagnose the issue but, recently I've heard one them didn't even know what a lift bolt said he needed a new head as opposed to 2 $2 bolts. I think it depends what Toyota mechanic you go too.

The 2ZZ's are identical between the Celica and Corolla. Main differences are the gearbox linkages, the ECU's and other smaller things (intake, engine cover etc.) See the video above for the screen clean.

My Corolla just ticked over 185 000 the other day and the oil generally only goes a dark golden colour, haven't seen many with black before. It may need an engine flush.

Not just the linkages, the boxes themselves are different - Sportivo is C64, Celica is C60 (Celica has a taller 6th)

Also this. The Celica 6th sits the car at a lower RPM which is handy for highway driving. Have talked to Bil (Xoom) about if before when I saw him last.

I suspect that you may have a fair bit of oil sludge in the valve train,

I would be wary of using commercial oil flush products unless you are also prepared to drop the engine sump and check/conform that the oil pickup screen has not become clogged with the dislodged sludge. 

I use diesel to flush my engine at every oil change. Drain the old engine oil, refit the drain bolt and add about 5 litres of diesel. IDLE [no fast revving] the engine for 5-10 minutes. Drain the diesel then do the oil and filter change. The drained diesel will look very filthy. Been doing this for many years and being öld school"I do oil changes every 5,000 km.

Something else that I have been doing to help desludge the engines in both of my Aurions is to add about 500 ml of diesel or ATF to the engine oil. You could also do this about a week before the oil change.

      Hi everyone
      I've just seen a light coloured oil stain on the garage floor, so I've checked under the car and can see the oil is dripping from the base of the gearbox. 
      Looking closely under the bonnet it looks moist around where the gearbox oil fill hole is. 
      Has anyone else experienced or know of this oil leak?
      Would be great to hear from anyone with more info and advice :)

      Hello,
      I have just bought 2008 Totyota Kluger Grande (GS045R). It has clocked 170,000 Kms and last service major was done on 152,000Kms.
      I have got the quote from Toyota Dealers and they are after $400 for basic service. I then called to MIDAS Hornsby guys (had good previous experience of service of my Mazda CX7-2007).
      May i get any recommendations here where i should go for service?
      Thanks

      A call out to all TRD Aurion owners !!
      I need to get my TRD serviced and would love to hear everyone's thoughts on who's a great mechanic - Independent or Toyota Dealer anywhere in Melbourne.
      I live in the western suburbs so the closer the better but I would travel a reasonable distance to know my TRD is being serviced by the right mechanic and not an apprentice overseen by a qualified mech at a dealership.
      I'm closest to Werribee Toyota. The head mech there, Paul, definitely knows his stuff but I dont think he's spinning the spanners. If I dont hear of a good option, I will probably take it there as I want to keep the log book looking good as possible.
      I need to get it serviced and fix a relatively fast oil leak - car has only done 58,000km and has been well cared for so IM VERY SURPRISED :(. It seems to be coming from the RHS of the motor. Ive seen some stuff on the forums about oil leak problems that Toyota want to keep hush hush and I am wondering if this is one in the same. The heads are clean as a whistle so its coming from somewhere below, where I cant see. Its currently leaving a decent puddle after 8 hours of sitting stationary so Ive gotta get it fixed pronto.
      Cheers

      Hey All,
      Where do you get your 86 serviced? Toyota dealer or other? Keen to hear of any great experiences. I want to make sure I take mine to someone who knows what they're doing. I'm in Sydney.
