    Hi Peggy and welcome to the Forum Good to have you onboard Cheers, Trevor
  2. 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
  3. 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 :-)
  5. Hi!

    Hi....and welcome to the Forum Look forward to seeing how it looks standard and then maybe come up with some ideas to enhance it Good to have you onboard Cheers, Trevor
  6. 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!
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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

    Haven't heard of any issues at the moment but will post up if anything comes up. Hope you're enjoying it so far?
  11. 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
  12. remote

    Do you have another remote for the car and if so does that work for the trunk? Sometimes, the buttons break off the circuit board internally after a lot of use/abuse Let us know what you find

  14. 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
  15. 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
