    Rare Toyota sells for more than $900,000

    Few cars can claim to be genuinely iconic, but Toyota’s beautiful 1960s 2000GT sports car certainly is.

    1989 Prado Faulty Drive Belt

    My 1989 Prado 3.4L petrol recently developed an annoying fan belt squeak. I had replaced all the drivebelts only 12 months ago and the car had done very few km since. I checked the tension on all 3 drivebelts and they were fine. I tried all the usual tests such as spaying water and belt dressing on the belts to no avail. I also listened for bearing noises in the various driven components such as the alternator. As a last resort I decided to remove all the drive belts to inspect the

    Brand new Prado 2022 with intermittent engine/transmission stutter

    Hi, back in February this year I spent $80k on a brand new Toyota Prado GXL from Sunsine Toyota in the Sunshine Coast. This is the first time I've owned a Toyota and whilst I'm generally happy with the vehicle I am beginning to get concerned with a subtle stutter that happens at random times when driving the vehicle. I haven't been able to figure out if it is an engine-related stutter or a transmission stutter, but it appears to happen when the the engine is revving at about 1500rpm and under a

    Coolant level...

    Greetings Gents,  Just a short quirey, I've just noticed that my coolant level in the expansion tank is at the low level..  This has not happened before..recently had a new water pump put in and wondering if it might be the cause of the low level..?  Or is it normal to have a low level appear after a long interstate drive ?  I bought some Penrite Red OEM Pre mix today and will top it up from the low level to the high level..Im assuming the 1 litre bottle will be enough for that ?

    Engine Oil Change Interval

    Following YouTube video has some interesting insights into the link between longer oil change intervals, type of oil, oil viscosity and the problem of oil consumption. Solution is to take a step back in time to the 90's with a shorter oil change interval of 5000kms. Consider using the lowest or lower oil viscosity range recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. Quality full synthetic oil with higher levels of detergent additives and a lower evaporation rate are being recommended.
