  1. Hi all. This is my 3rd Aurion. 2 GSV40 and now a GSV50. I do most mechanical work myself. 2 back operations have slowed that down recently but anyway on with my story. I recently purchased a 2014 prodigy. 61000kms. Started life as a fleet car and then sold privately at 8000kms to the owner before me who was an elderly gentleman. The cars in fairly good condition. His service history is not so much. Looks as if the oil was was changed at 8000, 30000 and 60000. There are 2 other services 11k and 20k but no information. So I'm thinking at worst which I knew before buying, that it's possibly gone 30k without an oil change. Now this is not 100% but is definitely possible. The old fellah had failing health and I bought the car off the dealership thst acquired it for him when he wanted one back in 2015 at 8000kms. He's apparently become ill so his family sold it back to the dealership he bought it from. Good country town ethics. Anyway so they didn't really want to call the old fellah to ask about the missing 45000 service. The dealership rang the other mechanic in the area and he had also not done it. So let's just assume it was done at 8000, 30000 and 60000. I have not pulled the valve cover off bank 2 yet but I took off the PCV valve and it looks as followed. {SEE PICTURES) I put my pinky in the plug hole too and felt around, it definitely has a sticky varbish under the valve cover, just like you can see on the head of the PCV valve. Actual valve is clear and opening and closing freely. I've never used an engine flush before, that's why I'm here asking questions. 1) Should I pull the valve cover off too properly inspect before deciding to use an engine oil flush like Nulon for example? 2) From the pic of the PCV, would you consider this amount of varnish to be worth doing an engine oil flush? 3) Anyone had any bad experiences with oil flushes afterwards, like noisy lifters or oil leaks? The car blows no smoke and runs great but within 500km of the oil change from the dealership I can see the oil starting to become dirty. Light brownish. Not black. But it shouldn't be this dirty already IMO. 4) So is varnish worth clearing or not? What do you think 😃 I love my 2gr-fe's that's why I buy these vehicles. Not for the looks of course 😲😉. So any help on a new found topic for me would be greatly appreciated. I of course will be doing regular oil changes that I now own it and I just want to give it its best life from here on in, a clean slate if that makes sense. I won't deny I do enjoy putting my foot down quite often, so I try to give my engines the best life I can with regular servicing and qaulity fuel.
  2. Hi all, So I have read quite a few forums here and there and tried to ascertain what choices others have made in relation to upgrading the terrible stock stereo Toyota supply in their base models (extremely old considering how basic it is, but what's cheap is cheap). I bought my Camry at 24,000km as an ex-executive a year ago and am quite fond of it for its price range, but moving down from a Premium-model XT Forester has got me in a pickle as to the head unit, as I desire something a little more advanced. Most of the forums I have found have listed a few cheaper units here and there (i.e. chinese imports) that people have been happy with but haven't really put in much feedback later on with how they lasted, etc. However I'm probably looking at something more trustworthy. Can anyone suggest any suitable units they have used in their cars or have any information about what will fit into the current fascia if possible (as I haven't found really any info)? TIA!
  3. I am in need of a 4M head or motor if need be - urgent
  4. Hello Rukus Friends, I have a 2011 Build one and have purchase a Gen Toyota 6.1 Touch Screen (from a new Corolla). The connectors at the back are different (which I already knew), however you apparently can purchase a wiring harness or conversion. My local Toyota Dealer in Brisbane doesn't think this exists. Ive spoken to all the parts and service persons. Do anyone know of a part # of elsewhere I can look. Its just the Antenna and Sound connection. The unit powers on and looks very pretty. Thanks in Advance. :D

  6. First of all, sorry if I am posting in the wrong section or asking about an already discussed topic - I am new here and just looking for straight forward help. Okay so, I am looking to replace my stock Toyota head unit (double din) with a Kenwood DPX-U6120. I have looked around on the internet on how to get my head unit out, but I can never find my specific one. So I have two questions: 1. How do I remove my current head unit from my 2008 Corolla ZRE152R Ascent Hatch? (if there is already a topic or post on this please just link me to it) 2. And will my new double din head unit fit straight into the gap without any specific pockets or modifications? here is a link to the head unit I am looking at: http://au.kenwood.co...ivers/DPX-U6120 And an image of my current head unit is attached: Thank you very much :) And again, sorry if im in the wrong section or posting about an already discussed topic.
