  5. Hi guys (Lift issues on 2ZZ VVTLi) Need some help in Melbourne sourcing a mechanic who actually knows there way around a 2ZZ VVTLi engine (Corolla Sportivo)? I went to my Toyota Dealer (been going there for over a decade) and my engine was leaking oil. The following list is the work they carried out in order to fix the oil leaks. The oil leak was fixed (and it cost me an arm so far), but now my car will NOT hit lift. They have had two goes at it, but they do not know why it won’t hit lift blaming anyone but themselves. What could be the issue of why lift is not engaging and could you please recommend a reputable mechanic who has previously fixed these issues and has experience with the 2ZZ VVTLi engine in Melbourne. The work which was carried out: · Removed timing case and cylinder head assembly · Replaced all seals and gaskets · Replaced head gasket and retorqued cylinder head · Replaced VRS gasket set and rocker cover gasket · Replaced all fluids
  6. This is for the 2003/2004 pre-facelift Toyota Corolla Sportivo (6 speed manual). When the clutch is replaced, does the exhaust get moved and/or loosen in order to have the work done. I am aware that gearbox has to be removed and reassembled, refit the drive shaft and wheels, but what about elements of the exhaust? Reason why I am asking, is that I just had a new clutch installed on my stivo (by a highly regarded clutch and brakes shop in Melbourne), and for some reason when i drove off, which started as a small, and then ended up being a large squeaking noise coming from underneath the car. I suspect its the exhaust. Cheers
  7. WTB: ZZE 123 Toyota Corolla Sportivo 16" Alloy Wheel with Tyre, or just Tyre. 2003 - 2005 Model. If you have the spare unused unit (maybe your spare?) with the Bridgestone ER30 195/55R16 I will be interested in buying it. Alternatively I an looking for used Bridgestone ER30 195/55R16 or Bridgestone ER300 195/55R16 with at least 90% tread. Please PM me.

  9. I use EBC Green stuff for street (Since 2004). As Superdave suggested, maybe something better, EBC Red Stuff/GSL/Endless etc for track work. Be cafeful as the heat may warp your front discs, as it did to my car. I had them replaced in 2004 with ADR approved slotted DBA items, since then no issues.
  10. The original question was: Can anyone please recommend any reputable place in MELBOURNE where I can get the work costed/completed? Thanks to the posted sugestions, but it didnt answer my question. A while back i did the work suggested (tensioner/damper and adjusting etc), still rattles (not just startup or idle, but also when I am driving). Service agents recommened to replaced the timing chain, and while I was at it, the rest of the gear. The rattle was not present in the 1st couple of hundread thousand klms.
  11. Vehicle : 2004 Toyota Corolla Sportivo ZZE123R, pre-facelift model. Currently 240,000klm. Owned from new, no mods. Question: I require my Timing Chain assembly to be replaced. Can anyone please recommend any reputable place in MELBOURNE where I can get the work costed/completed? Other information: Yes, I have had it tensioned numerous times, but it still rattles. It seems that the timing chain has been stretched (possible end of its life), hence required replacement. Engine does NOT require rebuild, still good. Answer: Please post or PM me.
  12. Here we go again, CES, oh yeah, that’s right, you don’t need dyno figures, consumption figures or any kind of tests with actual results, it just feels good on the track, righto…… and you wonder why seasoned members are no longer on these forums? Sold the Corolla, er, wrong answer. P1ssed off, er, right answer. Nice to see moderators at work, this always comes up, doesn’t it from time to time. I do not expect this post to be modified or deleted, as past posts have by other members that have left for the same reason. Oh yeah, banning, where appropriate, I agree, banned by this post just proves my point.
