  2. last week right after i fueled up my car i decided to floor it from 1st and 2nd and when it lift it hit really strong and jerked me back to my seat and at that the time my engine was warmed up. week later i try to to do the same thing and the lift didnt feel strong like it did the last time. the engine was both warmed up each time i hit lift. is there similar problems that had happend to anyone else before? i have an 205 corolla sportivo with 179000k's and fully stock

  4. Hmm advertising a Chemist on here what the heck is that about?????
  5. More the recommendation of the exhaust shop owner after measuring up the exhaust pipe on either side of the existing catalytic converter. 2.5" ended up being a neater fit. Both the 2.5" and 3" catalytic converter had the same size main body diameter i.e. 4". If there had been a notable difference then I would have been more insistent upon having the 3" version fitted. For insurance purposes, my rationale is that I have not modified the exhaust, I have upgraded an existing component. It is very much the same as replacing the existing mufflers with high flow versions. The main bottlenecks are the header catalytic converters and then the merge pipe of the front Y pipe. My thinking is that by increasing the exhaust flow of the last catalytic converter, this should be a viable alternative to modifying the front Y pipe and not impact the driveability of the vehicle. Certainly enjoying the differences and I have particularly noticed that the Aurion now coasts downhill faster.
  6. Have been informed by a mobile mechanic that three out of four injectors on a diesel hilux are cactus. .31 , 2.6, 2.8 and 4.1 on a scan tool. quoted 300 to supply and replace. Mat I ask for members advice on firstly if others have replaced these, is this price about right and also is there a cheaper / better option. located Newcastle area
  7. Being in Brisbane, I am doing ok, social distancing and staying away from any suspected hot spots. Got more time on my hands so doing ongoing preparation of my vehicle ready for a road trip just in case the QLD NSW border opens sooner than expected before Xmas. As per usual, I am planning on staying off the roads over the Xmas New Year period.
  8. Hi, I have a 2009 Pearl White Prado that over the last 2 years has developed many small cracks and then areas that have peeled. This is only on metal surfaces.WThe car has been looked after meticulously, washed and polished. Has any one else had problems, particularly with Pearl white (paint code 070)?

  10. Picked up a sad RT81 virus with a worn out 12r earlier this year, throttle assembly and other bits missing/broken from the car. If you have spare accelerator assembly linkages / side mirror/ carby / original wheels / Fuel & temp gauge or any other factory parts please let me know! Would consider taking the whole engine if in good shape. Any leads or information to whereabouts of these parts welcome, would be happy to pay postage for parts. Located - Victoria Help me save it!
  11. My lack of carport/garage or any enclosed space has had me defer the ceramic coating of my glass as it needs curing time and be shielded from airborne contamination whilst it cures. This is why Ive continued with the Rain-X product as it's more forgiving.
  12. That makes sense because as they approach the end of production run for the model they like to throw in as much standard equipment as possible to tickle the customer. So I'm thinking the 2009 didn't get it standard but 2010 and onward did. Also if they used it for police work, the radio may have fouled the button so removing it made sense as it can't be reached anyway. You'd think they'd leave it in the glovebox upon retirement of the vehicle, it could be put back. There are plenty of wreckers on Ebay so I reckon you'd pick one up pretty cheaply.
  13. Last week
  14. Great work mate! Give us an update. I can't open the photos, is there a way you could re-upload? If you want, just send them through messenger Cheers
  15. hello) I'm Ryan, I'm 28 and my car is Toyota Camry 2018 I would like to modify it
  16. Part of the Cadogan tech terminology "suck, squeeze, bang, blow" eh ? It's obvious to me on the clip on me computer speakers but it's not so obvious in real life. I think it's fine. Actually it sounds a bit like a quiet diesel sometimes.
  17. Hi guys, I am new on this forum. I am working under my hatch 2003 Toyota Echo, and by mistake I have knocked the pre cat oxygen sensor plug. I can't find where it actually connects to. Car is not on a hoist so i do not have clear visibility of the undercarriage. Can anybody help me with some photos or description? Thank you
  18. Cheers mate, I’ll have a read of that link 👍
  19. Thanks for the info on the tiresize calculator. After researching a little more I can confirm 2010 Aurion ZR wheels fit perfectly albeit with different size tyres. Stock wheels were 205/55/16 on 6.5 inch rims and the upgrade was 225/45/17 on 7inch rims and still have plenty of room under the guards. The ride is comparable with standard wheel/tyre combo with a little less body roll in the corners. Overall I am extremely happy with the upgrade.
  20. any Perth Rukus gang still around?

    radiator fill

    Hi all .. can someone please tell me how to properly fill the radiator coolant on a 2007 hilux which has not got a radiator cap .. thanks in advance
  23. I'm guessing Toyota dealer would have a proper machine to flush & refill to save time, I suspect something maybe went wrong with refill & the checking/difference of oil levels when cold & hot ? Sachs are good, KYB is equally OEM good & at the above linked price should be genuine, can get better price if you wait although eBay are tight-****s now 😕
  24. If you cant work it out from a simple wiring diagram take it to a auto sparky
  25. We both should get one of those rolling/slide chairs for getting under the car 🤣 might be wise for me in the future for oil changes
  26. Gentlemen. Been reading your posts. I have LC200 V8 Petrol and also have had the same issue for years!! Always been when towing and ambient temp was high. toyota say it’s Catalytic Convertor, but they really dont know. Firstly they said it was MAS, but it wasn’t that. They also saying could be transmission overheating!! Anyway, I think it is voltage related, but really, NO ONE KNOWS!’
