  1. Aurion calipers query

    On my 2007 the calipers have PBR written on them. Remove the wheel and look is the simplest way
  2. Spark plug prices?

    Thanks, the price seemed amazing, which is great but only if they are the real thing
  3. How long will my Aurion last?

    2007, atx 239 000km. No leaks, no mechanical problems. I have replaced lots of suspension to make it how I like a car to be but no water pump, alternator... replacements. Have drained atf three times and added spin on filter like a canister oil filter, engine oil at about 7 - 8000 km intervals, try to be gentle as it warms up. Im hoping to make 300,000km.
  4. Spark plug prices?

    So, 6 iridium plugs for $37? Im tempted just to see what comes. Has anyone elas tried anything like these? I guess they are not really genuine or these which are shipped from inside Aus, I like cheap, but only if its a good product, crap for little money isnt cheap. Anyone have any experience with buying plugs this cheap?
  5. Front End Suspension rattle

    That’s a lot of work.
  6. I had engine light and vsc and traction control lights on for a broken wire for the intake flap that opens up the second path into the airbox. I think the same lights come on for a host of issues, many of which have no relationship to traction control or vsc.
  7. I currently have 235/40/18 tyres which are coming to the end of their life. I think the speedo reads approximately 8-9% faster than the real speed and I know my wheel / tyre circumference is a little smaller than the 215/60/16 stock tyres. Im thinling of going to 245/45/18 which I think will make the speedo pretty close to correct and look marginally better - which isnt really a concern. 245 will be fine on my rims. Has anyone fitted this size? Any issues? Will tyre shops care what size I want? Is it likley that they will not want to fit these larger tyres for any reason? Would they see is as a mod that they could be lible for? I would love to hear about any relevant experiences
  8. Door seal rattle

    That sounds odd - do you mean that the doors jiggle and move because the door seals dont fill the frame to door gap? My car dash rattles a bit in winter - I assume that the plastic parts contract a bit allowing gaps and movements.
  9. Its a bit tricky.. on my 2007 I adjusted it at the shoes, then the cable and it works nicely but on wifes 2009 I did the same thing but it quickly went back to being almost useless.
  10. Noise when starting ignition

    +1 vvt rattle. Search this and there is lots of info including a video with sound of the problem. Your mp3 file doesnt seem to play
  11. Out of interest, how do you clean an o2 sensor
  12. 2010 Camry ATF change?

    You might need to find out what ‘changing’ the fluid really means. A drain and refill is a 30 minute job whit a hoist, a flush with a machine is different, Unlike engine oil, when you drain transmission fluid only about a third comes out.
  13. Front End Suspension rattle

    Stiffer springs and shock absorbers definitely increase noise. I have lowered 3 cars including my 2007 V6 and its the same each time. Check the sway bar links. They can be tight but still make a noise, I use wd40 then tighten them to make sure all the force I use goes to tightening not to moving rust.... However, chasing suspension noises can be frustrating
  14. Save 10-20% fuel

    Scangague! Pretty accurate on immediate and trip / tank fuel use out of the box but you can also adjust it when you fill up so Its super accurate
  15. Guy Sebastian Videos?

    Why is the sidebar filled with a singer talking about cars? Just seems odd
