  1. Hi Everyone, I have recently bought a used 2004 Toyota Camry Altise with 180,000 miles on it. Mechanically sound and no oil leaks at all. I have recently completed a 600 km journey today and have noted down my before and after oil level on my dipstick. Due to bad experience in the past with other vehicles concerning oil, i have some questions. I have attached two pictures of my before and after journey oil level in my dipstick. There has been some oil consumption, my question is if this level of oil consumption normal or if there is any problem with it? Journey details: Majorly
  2. A little help please? I have a Corolla Ascent 2007 and the oil light keeps coming on. over the past few weeks I have changed the fuel filter, oil. pressure switch, tested with a mechanical oil pressure tester ( pressure briefly okay and then drops after a minute) ran diesel to flush the engine, cleaned out the oil pan and oil pump pick up screen thoroughly, dismantled and cleaned the valve cover, replaced the oil screen filter under the cam cap, tested and checked al the VVT components, cleaned all the oil valves and other components, removed sludge, unblocked oil passage channels , put new ga
  3. Hi all Can someone please tell me what the recommended oil is to use for our Corolla Sportivo’s? Some advice on what type of oil and best suited brands would be great 🙂 Tryng to compare what the OEM specs are vs aftermarket eg. full synthetic etc Thanks
  4. Hi all Im looking to give my Stivo some tasteful mods but would like to learn more in the process. CAI - back in the day lots of owners went for the TRD CAI setup which at first was a struggle to install on facelift models and now looks like a discontinued product. How does Injen or Simota Racing rate? Are there any other suitable brands out there? COILOVERS - keen to explore what you guys are using. AIR FILTER - Worth replacing the OEM spec with something like K&N? SERVICING PARTS - what oil and oil filters is recommend for a general service? Would prefer fully s
  5. Hi, I own a ae112 2000 Toyota Corolla and recently it started making a rattling noise (see video). I haven't changed the oil in about 6 months and have done over 5000kms since then so it must be a oil issue. Since I last changed the oil (Sep 2017) the oil light kept coming on, it flickers when it comes on. It makes the noise more prominently when I change gears while driving. Any help as to what is causing the noise will be appreciated, thanks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=De5PDY7NI0M&feature=youtu.be
  6. Hello to all, I spied this community and thought id seek out some advice if you will give it. I may have potentially killed, or seriously injured my 2001 camry. So, i recently performed an oil change but didnt have as much oil as I really wanted on hand (bit of an oversite) to put as much in as i would have liked. About 3/4 full. Anyway, fast forward to today, about two weeks after the oil change and ive decided to top her up. Long story short, got distracted, didnt check the dipstick at regular intervals (bit of a huge oversite), and put way, way, waaaay too much in....then
  7. Hi! Is the oil residual on the engine cap (photo is attached) a warning on the condition of the engine? Also, when starting the engine, light white smoke comes out of the exhust, but it goes away after around 15 minutes. Thanks!
  8. Hi guys, i just replaced my engine oil with 6.1L Nulon 5w-30 SN Long Life. But the oil level is higher than the high dot on the dipstick when the engine was stone cold. Just wondering what’s the best time to use the dip to check the oil level? Stone cold or after warming up? Cheers

  12. Hi all, Bit of a long story... I have owned this car for around 6 years and generally been pretty happy with it. However, around 12-14 months ago I began to get random warning lights coming up - mainly the engine and VSC (orange ones). They might come up a couple of times in a week, and then not again for months. Anyway - I have taken the car to Toyota dealers 6 or 7 times to chase up these errors, not including regular services - and basically got the same response each time: "Yeah we saw some error codes, couldn't find any problems during testing, cleared the codes, you're right to go". Th
  13. Hi guys, I've noticed my Sportivo has left a small spot of red/pink fluid on the garage floor. As it was located at the front drivers side I'm presuming it is power steering fluid. Has anyone else experienced this type of leak on their Sportivo? Would it be best to take it to a dealer or can anyone recommend a professional mechanic in Sydney who knows what they are doing and uses genuine parts? Thanks in advance :)
  14. 80Series

    Prado problems?

    Hi, after over 10 years of owning a 1991 GXL Turbo Diesel 80 series Cruiser as our main family car, it started having a few problems so we bought a SV6 VE commodore about 3 years ago and use the cruiser as a second car. After a recent holiday in the commodore from central Queensland down to Narrabri, Tamworth, Glen Innes areas we really missed the 4WD because we couldn't see a lot of attractions in those areas because they were on dirt roads and we didn't want to shake the sv6 apart. So, I've been thinking of getting rid of the sv6 and probably the 80 Series as well and buying another newer 4W
  15. Hi, got a qucik question about oil now i know that the aurion can use different grades of oil. I currently use a 5w-30 oil which is fully snytheic my question is can i only use a semi-syn or fully-syn? As during a disscusion with a famliy member said that i should be / reccommeded a 15w-40 oil or a it might of been a 10w-60 now i can get this in the current brand i am using but i want to try a different brand and in those viscositys they are only mineral. So can i use a mineral oil? and is running a 5w-30 good? all the online lube match guides reccomend it as the best choice. - Cheers
  16. Hi Guys, Had a major oil leak last Friday, basically I just got onto the freeway and the low engine oil pressure light came up on the dash. Pulled up immediately on the breakdown lane, and looked underneath the car. There was a leak evident, and looks like the leak occurred at speed as there was a fair bit spread underneath the car and splatter near the rear diffiuser. Anyways, I got the car towed to my local dealership, and just today they have found the oil leak - a pinhole leak on a oil pipe. I queried whether this was a VVTi Oil Pipe as i'm aware of the issue of VVTi recall and updated pip
  17. I was thinking about changing to oils in my Caldina but have no owners manual to see what type i need..was looking at doing the engine oil and transmission is there anything else i can change the oil in ..rear diff?, and what type of oil will i need for these components..Can anyone suggest a good brand of oil???
  18. Hi Guys, I know theres a few posts about oil but none relating to oil for high mileage (otherwise Im not very good at searching forums).... My 2003 Conquest has 220,000 kms on it (hasnt missed a beat :) ), and so naturally burns a fair bit of oil..... should the oil I use be thicker to counter this? like 20w50? Im more concerned about looking after the engine more than anything, theres no leaks in the engine either....also there seems to be alot of differing opinions about what the best brand is..... any general guidance about decent brands also? Many Thanks Tim
  19. Rightio Gents, I'm back again, with a plethora of little questions. 1. Fuel Capacity. So the handbook says the ZRE's have a 55L tank - However whenever i get to the fuel light on and the RANGE saying 0 kays left, I only manage to stick in 42L or so. Now I understand that there's always gonna be a few litres sloshing around in the tank, but 13L? Really? Is this other people's general experience too? 2. I underestimated how lame it is not to have a boot release button on the central locking remote. Can I get a different key (like a camry key perhaps) and code it so that I can remote unlock the b
