  3. 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: mike@mikejbaron.com if you wish to email me. Thanks for any help you may provide!

  6. 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
  7. 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: //www.cheapautoinsurance.com/ 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!
  8. 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

    Pat_R That's quite an average mileage for the year and should go on for many years to come...hopefully with very few, if any, problems :-)
  10. Question

    Hi, I'm Pat, I've got a 2010 4Runner, and recently someone broke one thing off my truck (see the pic, I circled what was stolen). Now, I can not get a new one, as I do not know what it is this piece called? I googled for visor, window visor, deflector, window deflector on both e-bay and Amazon, and no luck, they have got only those that go above the side vindows. Don't think I do not know to use google, here is what ebay offered me - https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2499334.m570.l1313.TR1.TRC0.A0.H0.X4runner+visors.TRS0&_nkw=4runner+visors&_sacat=158937 Can someone help me please and give the right word for this thing? Photo was taken from the site.

  12. Shift knob

    Most gear knobs nowadays are pressed on but can be awkward to remove....I usually grip it with one hand and then hit the underside of the gripping hand with my other hand and hey presto! Just watch out that you don't look over it at the time and hit yourself in the face....been there!
  13. Brake Pedal goes 2 inches from floor before engaging

    Hi Laduca...welcome to the Forum The only place I can think to go to now is the ABS modulator. I know you said the ABS works fine which is okay but if there is any air locked in the ABS system then it will generally stay in there unless bled out. My advice would be to invoke the ABS as much as you can before bleeding it through and the next bit gets a little bit messy so put plenty of rag underneath and carry out with a cold engine, etc as Brake Fluid is highly flammable. Get someone to pump the brakes while you crack off each pipe connection to the block in turn. You should see any air being expelled almost immediately if its in there. Let us know how you get on with it. Cheers, Trevor
  14. Hi Smitty...welcome to the Forum Sorry, haven't got any data to set the switch up but I would imagine that like a lot of pedal switches, if you load it up and install it and then back it off until it switches off (should be able to hear it if its a plunger type switch. Probably better doing it this way as opposed to winding it in a bit at a time. Let us know how you get on with it Cheers, Trevor
  15. Venza schematic or dealers manual, who has one to share.

    Hi Kerry...welcome to the Forum Always up for sharing manuals (or sections of one) but haven't seen anything for a Verza by using a quick search....what jobs are you after carrying out? Cheers, Trevor

  17. Maintenance Agreements

    I would approach one dealer and then go to others to see if you can play one against another and drive the price down. worth a try at least
  18. remote

  20. engine rebuild

    Hi Rory....welcome to the Forum I would imagine in the region of $3000 should get you a replacement (reconditioned engine) and fitting. Maybe even consider a used engine as a cheaper option? Let us know what you find Cheers Trevor
  21. Hello

    Hi Stuart....welcome to the Forum If it's done 145k miles and all you've done is the oil and filter then you must be doing something right. Generally, when it comes to servicing a car, most of it is something you can do on the floor and with individual wheels raised and supported one at a time...otherwise, it is just a case of inspecting systems and components for wear and tear and replacing serviceable items and fluids periodically. Only other thing to consider is any service update downloads to the electronic systems and also recall items which won't occur outside of the dealer network. Cheers, Trevor
  22. Hi....welcome to the Forum Loving the truck....very impressed. Keep us updated with upgrades or road trips Cheers, Trevor
  23. What is the box next to the muffler?

    Hi...welcome to the Forum It sounds like it could be a Fuel Vapour cannister (EVAP system) so if you are getting a smell of fuel and its affecting the idle speed then chances are that is what it is Worth dropping into a garage to confirm and let us know what you find Cheers, Trevor

  25. How was the Revtek lift kit? Would like to know your feedback. I'm for suspension lift kits for Tacoma and I've been seeing some people comparing Revtech and Tough Country.
  26. Restoring fuel effeicency

    I always put 2 psi more in the tires than what it says! Helps me!
  27. tires

    I did some research of my own after I needed to replace mine, (2013 Camry LE) The Original Michelin X-green tires were really good, lasted 118,000 miles of pretty much straight shot highway driving. I wanted to buy them again but couldn't get myself to pay the $$$$ I think it was going to be about $500-$550 so I went with General tires, ($350) they had good reviews. glad I did because they have been great so far, even in the snow! So far I've put 27K miles on them and haven't really seen much wear off of them.
