  1. Check you haven't got a missing boot plug. Check boot seal isn't torn, if so you could always try some silicone to bulk it up or replace. Tighten boot by adjusting catch. Get into boot with a torch while someone sprays a jet a water around boot edge & suss out where leak is coming from.
  2. Relays, if any ? Physical connections ?
  3. ^^ @joeallen you find them firm, soft, bouncy, oem like in comfort/stability?
  4. Suspect you will need to swap out the SD card with one with the correct local maps. No one I know has ever manager to copy or hack into that SD card 😕
  5. Howdy, Curious to know if anyone else has experienced or seen this odd phenomena - the dashboard fit on my 2001 Camry is unevenly positioned & is a very tight fit on the drivers side. The drivers door pushes up snug against it & as the car flexes makes all manner of noises as they're both touching. The passenger side appears fine. Usually there's an even gap between door & dash - correct ? Exterior door alignment isn't perfect on the driver's side either, perhaps as a result of the dashboard but it's only drooped slightly lower on the striker side when closed. Gaps F-R appear fine. It's almost as if the dashboard has bulged sideways preventing proper door closure, it won't close fully unless I give it enough force, other three doors are good. What could be the cause? Tried searching for this & no info anywhere. Many thanks 👍
  6. Going up a steep hill further inclining the motor backwards will leak all over that exhaust & it will stink. I would suggest replacing the rocker/cam cover gasket asap, it's pretty easy on a 5S-FE, it shouldn't effect performance though. If PCV isn't working properly then the engine may be sucking in oil dulling performance. You would need to inspect & test.
  7. When you say the temperature "doesn't get there quickly" - how long are we talking ? Essentially it should only take about 5min for the coolant to get to normal temp. If not then thermostat is buggered. I presume it's not misfiring & the plugs are fine yada yada . . . Peep inside the rocker cover through the oil cap - does it have sludge in it ? Does the PCV valve work ? Take the intake hose off - is it coated in crud ? My 2cents . . . .
  8. ^ All the excellent tips mentioned by John Cadogan in the above video clip are the same preached by advanced driving courses which I believe everyone should do at least once in their lifetime, personally I believe it should be mandatory & perhaps even once a year as re-fresher courses because practice makes perfect. Todays latest proactive tech such as AEB (Autonomous Emergency Braking) is a godsend & has the potential to save your car & perhaps your life, unfortunately they're only available on new cars :/
  9. Would be great in a way if they discontinued the hachi as the val on mine would start going up :) The Supra has always been a str8 six & looks to continue that way, for how long who knows. The new Supra isn't a real Toyota & it's automatic :/ Appears a lovely car tho.
  10. I stay in the left lanes to try avoid this but if it happens cos someone is so impatient & desperate to pass I just take my foot off the accelerator & let the car slow down on it's own, they soon get the message & overtake. Stress disappears.
  11. It looks good but it's not a real Toyota & it's automatic. What's more it's a tiny car. Toyota would be pulling an 86 like rabbit out of the hat to get it anywhere near $60K for a turbo six like they're predicting made in Europe. BMW pricing is $125K ! I miss the old Japanese sportscars from the 90's & 00's 😐
  12. Thanks Joe, I ended getting the complete Gates kit w/o the water pump as I already had a genuine pump sourced from the US months earlier at a good price. Despite the oem warranty of the belt, ie: 10yrs/150K kms the belt has started to make the cricket/rattle racket they're known for because of the hard material they're made of & will soon be swapped out for genuine parts to be covered by Gates themselves ! The genuine stuff is made in Japan not Taiwan which is where the Gates stuff comes from. Very annoying & a damn nuisance. Note to self - ALWAYS buy genuine Timing Belt associated gear - ALWAYS !

    @awatea It should run as good if not better than standard ULP although you might not get the same economy.
