  1. 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
  2. After reading the following article http://www.caradvice.com.au/494956/2018-toyota-camry-spied/, I started to think how many current Aurion owners would be tempted to change over to a turbo 4 cylinder Camry. Personally, I have preferred a non-turbo engine mainly because of long term reliability. Turbos are nice until something goes wrong like a blown seal then off to the workshop.. Also less stress on the engine and 6 cylinders engines shouldy have a better life expectancy than 4 cylinders before having to do a rebuild. Always reminding myself that 2000 rpm in the Aurion is the equivalent of 3000 rpm in a 4 cyl Camry. Absolutely love how the 2GR-FE engine responds for overtaking on the open highway so less time overtaking, safer driving.
  3. Hi I have a 2002 4x4 v6 petrol hilux pushing 250,000 kms and it has a loud whistling sound I think coming from the fuel pump. Used to just happen when it was lowish on fuel but now always does it. Looking for any advice on what might be wrong or what I can do? Thanks
  4. Bought a nice conquest 190k kms but later found out the previous idiot p plater ran out of fuel and moved the wheel side to side to get as far as he could with no engine power severely wearing the pump (leaking,noisy) and rack mounts to the point of being scary driving around 80-100km country roads with the rack moving all over the place Quoted to fix pump $492 rack kit 46 rack boots 50 remove/replace it all 396 Is that pump price a bit over the top to anyone? and is it worth just buying an ebay pump for the age of the car?
  5. HI, Hoping someone can assist. I have a friend who has a 2003 V6 Estima auto, the transmission has failed and the local tranny repair guy is talking $6k to repair/replace, and he also needs a computer transmission chip, not even sure what that is... Does anyone know of a place to get s/h or reco trannys, we are in Tassie, but as I am in logistics, freight isnt a big deal. I would appreciate any help. John
  6. Got a little project on the go, my gearbox is on it's last legs and I have a dodgy foot so I'm pulling my manual box and 1HZ turbo out of my HZJ75 and putting in the 4L60E auto trans and 3.8L V6 Ecotec out of a VT Commodore in it's place. Is there anyone else out there who has done this conversion? Started with
  7. Hey everyone, I currently have a 2009 Single Cab 4.0L V6 Hilux, with a genuine toyota alloy tray and towbar. Right now the car is completely stock except for 31x10 Maxxis Bighorn Muddies. I am planning on a trip around alice springs, uluru area in Northern Territory roughly a year from now, and was just wondering on some suggestions for vehicle modifications and accesories I should look into before setting off. Budget is of no issue really, I just want products that will definitely do the job, and continue to do their job. Any suggestion is welcome. Thanks in advance
  8. Hello Toyota owners, im glad this site is available!!
  9. I just recently purchased a 2009 Toyota Hilux MY09 GGN25R 4WD V6 Petrol, its a cab chassis with a genuine Toyota tray and tow bar. It is completely stock and nothing has been touched and I was just looking for some ideas for modifications, I want to eventually start going out fishing, camping and general off road use, a little bit of 4WDing but nothing hardcore, just so I can access pretty much anywhere I want to spend the day. So if you guys have any ideas I would much appreciate your opinion and please let me know
  10. what do yous think?
  11. Okay, so I've been driving my newly acquired '96 Vienta Csi and I'm ready to take it to the next level. My main gripe with the car is that the ride is too soft for my liking. It's comfortable going over potholes and bumpy roads, but when I do quick turns and cornering, it feel like an oil tanker. After forum hopping for a while, it seems that a front strut beam and rear sway bar would make a difference at a lower price point. After doing a little digging and visiting autobarn down in chaddy this afternoon, i realised that Whiteline does not make a front strut beam for the '96 Vienta because there is no clearance above the engine; a real bummer. So i'm posting this hoping get a few more ideas re how i can improve my suspension without blowing a big hole in my pocket. A friend of mine recommended changing the stock suspension to coilovers and that should reduce the need for FSB and RSB. I don't have a lot of money to spare so if anyone has any ideas, please feel free to share them. (if you could provide an estimated cost as well, that will be awesome) thanks! :D
  12. Hey Everyone! I just bought my first ever car. It's a white 1996 Camry Vienta with 134,000kms on it and I love it to bits. It is my first ever car and so far, it's been an absolute joy to drive. I am looking to improve handling and performance on the car so suggestions are most welcomed! :D Drop me a PM, reply here, it's all good! Here's a pic!
  13. Hi All, I just bought a 3rd hand 1996 Camry Vienta 3.0 CSi from a private seller. It is due to arrive on Thursday. My deal with him was that I'll pay a really good price for the car and he'll send it in for RWC inspection (and servicing if required). I test drove it and it's all pretty good. The car has only 133,000km on it. Timing belt, spark plugs, distributor, and some other things were changed at 100,000km. As far as I can tell, there were no mechanical problems with it. I did notice that one of the side lights did not fit into the body properly. I reckon that problem is easily recitified with a firm shove. The car comes with a cassette headunit and I am gonna change it to a CD headunit the moment I get the car. Does anyone know if the ECT switch on the auto-gearbox affects the performance by much? I noticed that when I switched it to PWR, the revs are slightly higher and the gear changes are too. However it isn't like an overdrive system on some auto cars I've driven before. It doesn't feel more agile...probably cuz the car is too heavy... Because it's a pretty big engine and a pretty big car, fuel consumption is probably not the best. Is there any way to make the car more economical while also increasing it's peak performance? ECU tuning? engine add ons? Hope you guys can help.
  14. Hello Everyone, Finally, I join the elite club of Toyota users...Yipeee!!! But I have a problem. See, My toyota is a Camry LE V6 1998 version. Recently, I noticed that whenever I stepped on the brakes, the lights in my dashboard dimmed considerably. As soon as I release the brakes, the light seem to return to normal. Also, starting the car whenever I park it became a problem with the ignition dragging before finally starting the engine. As of now, my battery's out flat and I may have to change the alternator but I am not so quick to have confidence in these sets of solutions. Anybody else have ideas on what I sould do? :( :( :(
