  1. Hey 👋🏼 I’ll preface this with a disclaimer - I know nothing about cars & would really appreciate some honest help & assistance! Bought an 80 series petrol Landcruiser earlier in the year for $4K - silly us, we didn’t get the car looked over & while it gave us half a year no issues, it’s basically pooped itself. Toyota checked it over for us, didn’t offer advice on fixes but gave us the following issues; low idle due to severe blowby; rings not sealed and losing compression (needs an engine rebuild); radiator cap leaking; movement in front wheel bearings; power steering box leaking; rear sway bar link bushes worn; rear main seal leaking & movement in front unit “JNT”… So, I guess what I’m asking - is she farked? We love the car & it’s in otherwise perfect condition. I guess I want to know if ya’ll think it’s worth rebuilding & dropping some cash into the pit? Any estimates on how much this will cost us to get fixed with an engine rebuilder? Any tips/tricks on how we can perhaps cut some costs, learn some new skills & fix some of these issues ourselves? Greatly appreciated - thank you!
  2. Hey guys, I'm looking at buying a 2004 hilux 3.7ltr V6 petrol for $8000 AUD. It's an extra cab and looks in good condition with a few mods on it, there doesnt seem to be any issues with it mechanically, no oil leaks or trouble with the engine. My only concern is that it is the V6 petrol and has 370,000 Kms on it which is a lot for a petrol. Has this engine past it with that many Kms, am I likely to encounter a catastrophic failure in the near future? Thanks for any help guys
  3. I've just bought my first car being a 1976 Celica Ta23 and being completely new to car restorations/rebuilds, I'm in great need for good car advice. Only being 15, I would really appreciate some help on what are some of the best options for engine swaps as the current motor has clocked over 800,000kms. I'm looking for something newer that's more efficient and performs better but still being a 1.6L-2.0L four cylinder engine, that doesnt require too much heartache in installing. I would also love some advice on whats involved in doing such swaps in regards what extra parts/changes etc required. So far I've been researching 4age and sr20det engines but am lacking a good insight into what is the best option for me regarding my current circumstances.
  4. Hello fellow Hi-Lux owners. I am new to the scene and have "shot myself in the foot" in regards to my recent purchase. Need some advice(a lot) and help in regards to several issues I am currently having trying to get my car on the road. The bloke that I bought her from has put a VN 3.8 in the engine bay and from what I can see did most of the conversion properly. problem is i'm guessing at about the 98% mark he has gotten frustrated and done some stuff that is a bit of a dogs breakfast. Largest problem I am having is the clearance between the exhaust and the slave cylinder is about 5-10 mm (not enough) to make it fit it appears he has taken a "sipro saw" to the bleed point... First question(not the last) is has anyone done this conversion before or come accross this problem before and what did you/they do to fix it? I am thinking I could mount some extractors to the 3.8 and re-do the exhaust back from that??(exhaust needs doing anyway... I can post pics if necessary but more interested if someone has done this conversion before :) Thank you in advance Newbie Hilux owner

  7. Hi, I'm new to this website but its sseems like a very awesome place to ask for advice. So I am on my L's at the moment and will be on my p's by the end of the year, and I'd like to research some possible cars for my p's. I've always been a supra fan and they are great looking cars and quite powerful, though I am not into the whole hooning and racing scene I just like a nice looking car that I can rely on. To be honest I'm quite dumb went it comes to supras but I was wondering is a non turbo supra, preferably from 1994 or newer be a good first car? I'm looking at a price range of 9k-15k, I would like a supra with simple mods, such as a nice kit and slight performance improvements to make driving a little easier. I can driver either manual or auto, I don't plan to race or show off the car by doing stupid things, and I plan to add some sort of sound system into it eventually if it does not already have one. Btw I've been reading the other similar posts and people says hondas are better but I'd really like a supra. Cheers :D Eric
  8. Hi Boys, Looking to buy the latest gen celica for a first car but having trouble choosing. http://www.carsales....aspx?R=12903364 http://www.carsales....aspx?R=13288788 Could anyone give me a recommendation - the paint issue isnt really a problem with the second car I'm keen on the Celica styling but If you wouldnt buy either, could you recommend a similarly sporty looking car that wont break the bank. It is my first car, but I'm hoping to have it for many years so reliability is fairly important - has anyone had major mechanical issues with thiers?
