  3. Sorry, I never posted an update!! After installing a new relay...headlights turned on and off normally!
  4. I still have a 1996 Avalon XLS, purchased new, with about 161,000 miles on it. Absolutely, the best car I have ever owned! My Avalon is also Pearl White with beige leather interior. Though of selling it several times...but couldn't do it. Mark
  5. Thanks, Mark. I see other '99 Avalons daily in my driving around town. I'm amazed how many there are on the road. They have been a fine ride!

  7. my 2013 camry shook only between 40 and 45 miles an hour, I was able to locate a service advisory on the problem via internet search. A problem with the transmission. Dealer took a day to fix, gave me a loner car.. didn't charge me. just like your health , be your own advocate, track down the dealer service advisories , they won't do it for you, sometimes they're just lazy, or they just dont know till you show them
  8. I have a 16 Camry xse and wanting to lower it just a little bit. Wondering if anyone here has done a leveling kit and what brand they used. Also wouldn’t mind upgrading the rims to 18’s or 19’s and not sure if I would have any figment problems.
  9. PattyK, I would try listing your Avalon on one of the following: Cars.com, Autotrader, Edmunds, E-bay, Craigslist, or your local newspaper. Cars.com has Eleven 1999 Avalons for sale now...from $700 to $5900! Mark
  10. While I agree with you, that the problem should have been addressed at the differential service. But, these things can happen suddenly, without any warning. How long ago did you notice this problem? Did it start suddenly? The Drive Train warranty is for 100k miles only. After that, it's up to you to pay for fixing it. Sorry about the $3100 bill. While it is unpleasant to pay.....it's not that high. If you intend to keep it for a long time, you have to be prepared to fix it sometime. Nothing lasts forever, unless you put money into it! Even a Toyota!!!!! Bob K
  11. We are looking to sell our Avalon XLS, which we bought in Jan, 2000. We've been putting off doing for 10 years, it's been that good to us. It's gone 283,500 miles, and we still drive it daily. Maintenance has been routine, as recommended and it's sporting new tires purchased at 279,000 miles. Any thoughts on where to post for best interest? OBTW, It's pearl white w/ beige leather , and we are non-smokers. Thanks!

Date: 10/6/2005 10:08AM Subject: Toyota Paseo Convertible Below are the production numbers (they are fairly accurate) for the Paseo Convertible, this includes the Cynos (name different for exported vehicles). Also some press information release by Toyota about the Paseo convertible. 1997 - 3694 1998 - 151 1999 - 24 ________________________________________________ ASC Incorporated - Marketing and Communications One ASC Center, Southgate, MI 48195 Toyota Press Release Toyota and ASC Celebrate the Completion of First Paseo Convertible: New Toyota vehicle is the lowest priced convertible in America. 10/21/1996 Torrance, CA October, 1996 - TORRANCE, CA - Toyota and ASC celebrated the completion of the first Paseo Convertible at a line-off ceremony held at ASC's Long Beach, Calif. assembly facility on Sept. 26. Yoshio Ishizaka, president and CEO of Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc. joined Heinz Prechter, chairman and founder of ASC Incorporated for a ribbon cutting ceremony, as the first Paseo Convertible rolled off the assembly line. "Today, Toyota not only celebrates the completion of the first Paseo Convertible, but a 14-year partnership with our friends at ASC," stated Ishizaka at the Sept. 26 ceremony. "Both the Paseo and the Celica convertibles are symbolic of our mutual commitment to producing quality products for sale both here and abroad." The Paseo Convertible's conversion process takes place at U.S.-supplier ASC, in Long Beach, Calif., the conversion location for the Toyota Celica. Toyota's newest entry in the sporty car segment offers the lowest price point of all convertibles sold in the United States. The Paseo convertible combines the leading-edge style of the coupe model with the sun-loving addition of a manual convertible top. The Paseo Convertible begins life at Toyota's Takaoka plant in Toyota City, Japan, as a partially assembled coupe. Structural braces in the rocker panels, rear strut towers and rear fenders are added before the vehicle leaves the factory. It is then shipped to ASC, where the metal roof is removed and the conversion process begins. A four-layer insulated top is designed specifically for this application. Adding only 143 pounds to Paseo's curb weight, the conversion allows the vehicle to retain its rear seat and invades only minimally into the trunk, allowing plenty of secured cargo space. The convertible's top features a heated rear glass window and glass rear quarter windows that fold with the top. The Paseo's lightweight top is easily raised from the driver's seat position. The Convertible will be offered in three exterior paint colors including Super White, Satin Black Metallic and Super Red, all with complimentary gray sport-cloth interiors. The Paseo Convertible will be sold in the United States, as well as Japan and Europe. Paseo convertibles will reach U.S. Toyota dealers on Nov. 1, 1996. Toyota Press Release The 1997 Paseo lineup is expanded with the addition of a Convertible model. The conversion takes place alongside the Celica Convertible in the ASC plant in Rancho Dominguez, Calif., where the roof is removed and the convertible top installed. The top is two-layer and incorporates an integrated heated glass rear window. What does it mean? Paseo: From the Spanish word meaning "promenade." Where is it built? All Paseos are built at the Takaoka Plant in Toyota City, Japan. Toyota Press Release 07/01/1997 The distinctive 1997 Paseo coupe delivers affordable, sporty car styling with Toyota's unmatched reputation for quality, dependability and reliability. Adding to the excitement for ‘97, Paseo goes topless. The all-new Paseo convertible offers all the fun and style of the coupe with the sun-loving addition of a manual convertible top. The Paseo convertible's conversion process takes place at U.S. supplier ASC, in Rancho Dominguez, Calif., the conversion location for the Toyota Celica. The Paseo convertible begins at Toyota's Takaoka plant in Toyota City, Japan as a partially assembled coupe. Structural braces in the rocker panels, rear strut towers and rear fenders are added before the vehicle leaves the factory. It is then shipped to ASC, where the metal roof is removed and the conversion process begins. A four-layer insulated top is designed specifically for this application. Adding only 143 pounds to Paseo's curb weight, the conversion allows the vehicle to keep its full-sized rear seat and invades only minimally into the trunk, allowing plenty of secured cargo space. The convertible's top features a heated rear glass window and glass rear quarter windows that fold with the top. The Paseo's lightweight top is easily raised from the driver's seat position. Completely redesigned last year, the second generation Paseo receives only minor changes for 1997. New Paseo interior features include dual vanity mirrors on the hardtop coupe, revised cabin door trim and logically placed rotary heater controls. Paseo retains its aerodynamic look without exterior changes for 1997. The Paseo's trend-setting design and sleek lines are enhanced by flush headlamps and spoiler-style color keyed bumpers. Complimentary black remote-controlled mirrors, protective bodyside molding, tinted windows and full wheel covers add to the look. Sports car-styling cues are not limited to the exterior. Reclining high-back seats with integrated heardrests and fabric upholstery accentuate the Paseo's cabin. Interior appointments include rear fold-down seats with security lock, fabric door trim, full carpeting, fabric headliner and fully lined trunk. The feature-packed cabin offers popular conveniences standard. Niceties include AM/FM ETR radio with four-speakers, dual cupholders, a digital clock, rear window defogger, intermittent wipers and remote fuel and trunk releases.

The Paseo's 1.5 liter DOHC four-cylinder engine offers a quick-revving 93 horsepower at 5,400 rpm and 100 lbs./ft. of torque at 4,400 rpm. Available with either a slick-shifting manual transmission or four-speed electronically controlled automatic, the engine is as economical as it is responsive. Paseo's estimated EPA city/highway gas mileage is an impressive 30/35 mpg for the five-speed manual transmission and 28/34 mpg for the four-speed automatic transmission. Paseo's suspension offers nimble handling and excellent ride comfort via a MacPherson strut-type front suspension and trailing torsion beam rear suspension. Front and rear stabilizer bars and power assisted rack-and-pinion steering contribute to Paseo's balance and control.

  14. It depends on vehicle use, e.g. town driving versus freeway driving, the town driving is considered to be more degrading to the engine oil and would need changing sooner than say if you just drove around town
  15. Hi....welcome to the Forum Good to have you onboard
  16. Hi...welcome to the Forum Which particular products, service items? cleaning products?
  17. Sounds very much like a software update is needed regarding the fast idle issue....hassle your supplying dealer to get this resolved (at no cost!) Let us know what they find
  18. Hello Folks, I just bought a new 2019 SE 2 weeks ago. The vehicle has a fast idle when stopped, like at a stop sign or red light. Let off the brake pedal and the HL takes off and lurches forward. This just started. This is a safety issue, so I'll be seeing the dealer sooner then later. Any ideas out there? We have 500 miles on the HL. Also, my neighbor has a 2018 HL with Stop/Start..guess what...these SUVs need a special battery..he needs a new battery...under warranty......Toyota said none are available. Do you believe that? Part # 28800-31550. Oh well. 9high
  19. Hi Everyone. Owned 3 Toyotas since new in 2004 and they have been excellent (2004 Tundra, 2004 Sienna, 2014 Sienna). One 2002 V6 Tundra bought used, and it was also extremely reliable, but a stone to drive.
  20. Hello, I am new to the group and joined because I have a problem with my car. It's an 09 Corolla with the 1.8. Lately I have suspected I had a blown head gasket, so the other night, I ran a compression test. The test showed, in order from front to back, 115, 115, 125, 125. For me, this isn't conclusive enough of a blown head gasket, so I was going to test cylinder leakage the next night. I put the coils back on so I could drive it the next day and it wouldn't start. It would try, but it never would stay running once the starter disengaged. Here's the dumb thing I did: I propped the(electric) throttle open during the test. I have no excuse other than it was late and I wasn't thinking clearly. When the car wouldn't start, I thought I must have damaged the gears in the throttle, even though it opened when I had an assistant press the gas pedal. So today I got a throttle from the local pullapart, installed it, and performed the procedure for teaching it's range. Still it won't start. The only other thing I can say that might shed some light is that there was a po121 code after the compression test. I cleared it and it hasn't come back. Does anybody have any idea what I have screwed up? Thanks in advance!

  22. Hello everyone trying to figure out what's going on with my 2002 sequoia 2x4 I recently started to drive it more often bought it 1 year ago with 95k miles when I bought it 1&2nd kicked while shifting put some Lucas trans for time being. 6 months later after 5k miles drove better but wanted to change fluid so I flushed total of 12 quarts 3 attempts through trans cooler did see some silver flakes fluid was black maybe never changed does have low miles for 02. Put a external filter filled with V max life trans full synthetic at first it shifted on time but symptom was more noticeable so I added I Lucas trans and libiguard got better made the trans fluid a little thicker I don't think its the selonoid It goes in all gear but not 100% smooth in 1 & 2. 3&4 is fine 1st being worser than 2 can't it be the selonoid or is the damage done because of it being 18 years old and probably not being serviced over time also reset the computer by taking the negative off over 10 min any help would be great also did get the rear hatch window to operate was thrilled multiple times to go up and down it didn't work the next day and still doesn't bad motor? Thanks p.s. also own a 2003 sr5 with 210k miles but no trans issues bought 3 years ago with 180k miles
  23. We've had a Camry for quite a while, and we just bought a new-to-us 2016 SE. I have questions, but will browse first because I am sure it has been asked and answered many times.
  24. Thanks for letting me know. Also I did some research and AISIN seems to be the same Japanese manufacturer for Toyota, Nissan, etc so almost the same than buying the OEM parts. Thanks again,
  25. Trying to buy a new spare wheel cover for my 2012 rav4. I have 17" wheels and the Toyota parts website keeps trying to sell me 16". Am I missing something here?
