Due to the current COVID-19 situation, we should be staying home this Easter unlike other years. I am going to keeping busy with some preventative maintenance on my "mechanical girlfriends". Planning plenty of fluid checks and changes. Already prepared with all the necessary parts. Bought an oil filter for another vehicle last Sunday. Possibly also do a brake fluid change now rather than later in the year.
Hi all, I'm new to this site so excuse me if I'm doing anything wrong. I own an AE93 Corolla, the SX SECA model with a Redtop 4AGE. I've owned it for a year or so, and it's just clicked over to 250,000 k's. The car is running fine, however I can't help but think "how much longer is that 4AGE going to hang in there?" I don't think it's worth getting a full rebuild for it, but what are some good high-mileage refreshers for this engine?
Hi All, I'm a Toyota Aurion Sportivo SX6 GSV40R owner, and am looking for some help with some maintenance on the car. I don't drive the car much, the odometer's only on 67,000km but the car was up for its 90,000km maintenance a few months back. I got quotes and it was darn expensive, so I got them to do the 75,000km service instead. I'm now wondering if any of you gurus out there can give me some instructions on how to do the things that is required on the 90,000km service and is not covered by the 75,000km service. How to inspect transmission fluid, where is it located, how to get to it and what should I be inspecting? How to inspect the fuel tank cap, fuel lines, connections and fuel vapour control valve? How to inspect the charcoal cannister, where is that, what should I be inspecting? How to inspect the engine coolant, where is it located, is there some sort of line to show what the max level it should be? How to check exhaust pipes and mountings, what should I be inspecting? Rust? I know almost close to zero about cars, please be gentle, and photos would help so much. Any help at all would be so much appreciated.
