  1. Hey! So this Saturday I had a run with a 4age Toyota Ceres, was ahead by two cars' length in third gear (145kph) and mistakenly shifted to second gear instead of fourth gear , RPM went beyond 9k. Instantly I shifted to neutral and took it to the side. Now gear wouldn't shift while clutch pedal felt normal and engine was vibrating as if one ignition coil was not working. All the bad imagination comes rushing in since 2zzge isn't known to handle overrevs so well due to it's weak oil pump and also that it's an interference engine. So I put the car in neutral and ask some friends to push start the car fortunately the transmission shifted to second gear, 100 meters ahead car started to *****; similar symptom of a failed ignition coil, so we decided to tow it. Now at that time vibration had gone but recurred after a while. Next day went to a shop and asked my local mechanical stig (jk) to check the transmission, fortunately it was just a clutch disc (old but was fine) ,pressure plate and throw out bearing, shifting problem was gone but so did vibrations along with apparent misfiring/ignition problem. Now I can't make up anything out of these series of unfortunate events i.e. how can vibration & apparent ignition problem (assuming because car wasn't acceleration and was jerky) be gone after changing clutch disc and throw out bearing. Can anyone explain this? Also if anyone can suggest an easy way to check if I have some slightly bent valves or something. I tried Lift once after the incident and it feels normal.
  2. Hey guys just wondering if anyone knows the location of the fuel filter on a 2012 v6 Kluger. Can't seem to find it under the hood. Car is blowing a bit of smoke and I think I've got dirty fuel and need to change the filter. Thanks in advance.
  3. EDIT: Multiple threads with the same topic in the same section, effectively a For Sale/EOI thread out of the Buy/Sell forum too Please read the rules regarding Buying/Selling on the forums and the restrictions that apply.
  4. My names Michael, I OWN A 1998 mcv20r TOYOTA Camry (3.0L V6). I have an issue where by the car will be driving and as soon as I descend down a hill, it will start to ***** around, feels like its trying to fuel cut (I know its not though, just feels like it), then when I pull up at the lights it feels like its trying to stall. I have been informed it could be O2 sensors, Cracked on-board computer board, MAF sensor as well as various other things. I have found that if it does it, I pop the bonnet and tap the EGR Valve with a screw driver it will stop it and run normally, yet I have replaced the EGR valve 4 times. Anyone experienced the same problem or know what it might be? Any help would be greatly appreciated
  5. Hi everyone. I have owned my 1991 celica ST for 2 years and planned to sell it soon. Yesterday, the power steering failed. Turning the wheel caused a grating noise and soon enough the car had no power steering. No ps fluid in it's tank so I refilled it to max. After 15 minutes driving to work, fluid level was zero. Obviously it's a major leak. After doing some reading online, it looks like it will cost over $400 to replace the power steering pump. I'm not keen to spend that kind of money and am hoping to find a way to continue to drive the car with no power steering (for about a month until I can afford a new car). I will likely end up taking it to a wreckers due to 800$ in other costs to get RWC. It's in perfect cosmetic condition w recent black paint and only 140,000 ks. Real shame. Anyway what I need to know is, should I remove the power steering pump if I'm to continue driving the car? I don't want to cause damage to the ps rack or any other mechanical issues. I only intend to drive the car <3 km distances to work & for groceries. Anybody with mechanical know-how able to give advice? Thanks
