  3. Air-Lock(s) is Coolant System

    No expert but when i first got my gen 5 it the needle would climb when i was stopped at junctions etc and then go back towards normal as soon as got driving, this was the thermostat sticking and a new one solved that Heater matrix know nothing about but there's something up there and it may well be contributing Sounds like it could do with a good look over

  5. What Ams said above, esp the under the rear seat thing and dont keep any bottles of liquid in the car as that doesnt help a sock with some crystal cat litter in it with the top tied is better than rice
  6. Selling a car... Test drives?

    What i've done in the past is take them for a test drive with me driving to show them what it can do, then once back and peel their fingers off the dash let them have a little sedate drive round the block with me in the passenger side so long as their insurance covers them to drive another car not owned by them, and i ask them to bring proof. Usually they are covered on someone elses car but only third party so it is a risk you take or get them to sign something saying they'll buy it if they break it . If someone has fully comp ins it still only covers third party on a vehicle not owned by them
  7. Mine wasnt on a Celica but a brand new VW Van had just put a new elevating roof, windows, heating, full camping conversion in and it was ready to go to the customer. Decided to test the new conversion before they collected it, they knew it was being tested. Up in the windy roads of Highlands on a hairpin met someone the other way and though only touched ended up with a fair size dent in the sliding door, no paint damage. Took door panel off at side of road, pushed and dent popped out but wouldnt stay. To this day it probably still has the piece of wood i found to keep it pushed out behind the trim panel
  8. Chrome Scuff/kick plates oem part numbers

    They're not just happened to be out there from the shed that day that the part number was asked for. They're likely to be going in the car but if i did decide to sell Fuppylodders would have first refusal Unfortunately they aren't available now from Toyota
