  1. Cruise not working

    worth checking that the stop lights are functioning properly as that can affect cruise control operation sometimes
  2. 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
  3. 2006 Six Cylinder Engine running rough

    Check vacuum leaks and also run fuel treatment through the engine....would try that first
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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.

  8. The complete history of one of the most famous 4x4s of all time The Land Cruiser is Toyota’s longest continually produced model. From its start as a utility vehicle built during a period of economic gloom and uncertainty after the Second World War, it is now a well-equipped, luxurious and highly capable prestige SUV. This book covers all the changes that have taken place over the years to provide a complete history of the Land Cruiser’s extraordinary heritage. This book covers all the changes that have taken place over the years to provide a complete history of the Land Cruiser’s extraordinary heritage and includes the Land Cruiser’s outstanding success in some of the toughest environments of the world, and what it takes to modify it to meet the toughest of conditions. The author follows the extensive range history of the Land Cruiser from its earliest models, through the utility models, right up to the prestigious versions that exist today and draws on his considerable experience of both on-road and off-road testing to provide his informed professional judgement on this extraordinary vehicle. The first chapter deals with the origins of the Land Cruiser and how Military and Economic circumstances lead to the birth of a legend. The second chapter looks at the Land Cruiser range and how it varied over the years to accommodate the commercial and private markets. The third chapter looks at a specific model, the FJ40 and how it has evolved over the years to become one of the best 4WD vehicles ever built. The fourth and final chapter deals with modifying the Land Cruiser for expeditions, safari holidays and world speed record events! All in, this book is a fascinating read for any Land Cruiser enthusiasts and comprehensively covers the models from 1951 to present day. Numerous diagrams, data charts, photos (colour and mono) are used throughout to break up the written content making it easier the reader to pick up and put down as required and digest as much or as little information as desired. A very informative and attractively laid out book at a reasonable price!

  9. Fuel injector query

    Agreed....replace the O Rings and that should sort it
  10. Contaminated Fuel?

    Hi...welcome to the Forum I think you may be correct about the temperature being so low that it could have affected the temperature sensor reading but otherwise I cannot imagine it is cross-contaminated unless the fuel station got the wrong fuel pumped into their tanks...which does happen. Good luck with sorting it and let us know the outcome. Cheers Trevor
  11. 2012 Yaris Audio System

    Hi Eugene I'm afraid I don't have the answers you are looking for but maybe if you post the question in the United Kingdom version of the Toyota Owners Club then I'm sure someone may be able to assist you. You will need to sign up as a Basic Member to post in the forum but there is no cost for this, also the sign up procedure is exactly the same. Cheers, Trevor
  12. New guy

    Hi ToyoPro....welcome to the Forum Feel free to post up some threads and looking forward to reading them Cheers, Trevor
  13. MR2 parts

    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

    Hi Peggy and welcome to the Forum Good to have you onboard Cheers, Trevor
  15. 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
