  2. Limited edition number

    I want to know where i found the number of my limited edition car number.
  3. Alloy Wheel Corrosion

    I have the same problem with corrosion/peeling on alloy wheels on my 2004 Sienna. I ignored it for several years but now it is causing slow leaks around the rims and I need to make some decision. Hate to spend the $$$ on all new wheels for a 14 yo vehicle but the van runs great otherwise. Any suggestions, recalls?
  4. Last week
  5. Toyota Manuals... Lots of them. 3 Tundra Boxes full. Contact me with any you may be looking for. I will start to list them individually as time permits. All seem to be in like new condition. Seems they run from 1985 to 2000, with just about every model. Manuals are located in Canada, so you get to buy in Canadian Dollars. Just give me a bit of time to get them sorted out of the boxes. Send your want list & I'll see what I have & we can then go from there with cost, shipping etc. Meanwhile keep the dirty side down & have fun
  6. SiriusXm Signal Loss

    Could be more to do with radio transmission rather than radio reception. In the UK, radio transmission has gone digital and a lot of analogue stations are starting to disappear or lose power in transmission

  8. 2006 Six Cylinder Engine running rough

    I am running Fuel treatment. Fuel injector cleaner actually. My mechanic recognizes the issue, told to use it me to use it and tells me it is running properly other wise. But I will make sure he checks for vacuum leaks again. Thanks for responding
  9. Running Rough

    I would recommend running some fuel treatment through the fuel system/engine and then follow it with an Italian Tune-up....this tends to sort poor idling problems. At least it's a place to start and it costs very little. From there on it would be a case of checking vacuum leaks, engine condition, etc and albeit it's fundamental stuff and shouldn't cost too much in time, its still best to eliminate the obvious things first. let us know how you get on and what you find

  11. 2006 Highlander Hybrid no heat???

    I just joined. Sort of a useless forum. Black hole is right
  12. Vsc light and traction control car died

    Sounds very much like power supply issues....battery connections (corrosion, loose terminals, etc) as each time it is connected/disconnected then it seems to cure it. I would start there and work out from there to see what you find.
  13. Fuel injector query

    I wouldn't take a chance with fitting the wrong seals and maybe best to source them directly from Toyota as they wouldn't be too expensive. Usually, the issue is with selecting the correct type of seal (as in the correct material it is constructed of as it has to be resistant to fuel, etc) so definitely would not recommend buying something that you are not 100% sure is correct for the purpose.
  14. newbie update

    Hi Bo...welcome to the Club Good to have an avid Toyota fan onboard Cheers, Trevor
  15. Hit a dead deer about a year ago and vsc and traction control lights came on. Eventually ran fine and lights went off till a few days ago. Recently the radio died and the lights came on. Car would not start. Jumped it and it restarted but it sputtered and I shut it off. Replaced the battery. Started and drove 60 miles or less. Radio died again, lights came on and engine sputtered and sounded bad. Car is now parked, won't start or even go into gear unless you disconnect battery, wait a while and then re-connect. At shop now waiting for diagnosis but would like to avoid troubleshooting and fix myself if possible. Thanks for any ideas.

    Hi Samuel.....welcome to the Forum Not sure about the coolant outlet assembly but the turbo hose you would be better getting an aftermarket silicon hose...better and cheaper! Let us know how you get on finding an outlet Cheers, Trevor
  23. I have a slight battery drain on my 2003 Matrix. Has anybody had this problem and solved it? I saw an owner of a different model Toyota report his battery drain was caused by a faulty automatic door lock. My email is: if you wish to email me. Thanks for any help you may provide!

    Hi Peggy and welcome to the Forum Good to have you onboard Cheers, Trevor
  25. Hi...welcome to the Forum My first thought is battery charge levels as if they are considerably low on charge and in poor overall condition from being on vehicles that have stood around for a while then this can lead to a range of issues with electronics That would definitely be the first thing I would check. Let us know how you get on with it all Cheers, Trevor
  26. Supra 96

    Hi my supra "Big J"was made in 1999, and before this was supra made in 1989 and I can say that the new machine is much better and less likely to break. Very cool of course gift to his son, probably he is a fine fellow), I can advise you only what is better to take with 4 doors, since it will be easier, but I think you will make the right choice. With regard to insurance, I have been working as an insurance broker for many years and I can advise you to read this site. Http: // How much I would not look for different sites, on this you will find the most current insurance and information about them. And yes I think you can take his car =) Good luck!
  27. pulley replacement

    I would disconnect the auxiliary belt(s) and see if the noise disappears. Sometimes, rattling noises can be produced by the crankshaft pulley when it's breaking up and when no load is taken off it the noise then disappears. Also, Alternator pulleys (if the over-running type can also rattle but by taking the belt off then if the noise disappears then look there as well
