  1. 3sge oil + filters

    Actually, just checked the front page of the website and there is a discount code on oil now for 35% off stated prices.
  2. 3sge oil + filters

    I used 10 40. I suspect different models may share the same filter. I buy my genuine parts direct from a Toyota dealer so I wouldnt know about ebay. I think this is the oil I used last. I bought it when there was a good discount code on though https://www.eurocarparts.com/ecp/p/car-accessories/engine-oils-and-car-fluids/engineoils/10w40-engine-oil/?521772251&0&cc5_245&type=shopping&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI7qGpi9WG3gIV4r3tCh13GgpGEAQYBSABEgIeF_D_BwE
  3. 3sge oil + filters

    I went with genuine Toyota oil filter and whatever decent oil was on offer. Shell Helix I think it was at the time. Toyota filter will be fine. They know what they're doing. Plus you replace them often anyway
  4. Pre Winter Checks

    New wipers Winter screenwash Lube hinges New tyres if pretty worn
  5. 3sge revs up and down when cold

    You cant get fully in there to clean but you can enough. The main part to clean is the little adjusting flap thing and that's fully accessible. I'd definitely clean the existing one, but its your call. Toothbrush, cotton buds and carb cleaner worked for me
  6. help understanding part numbers

    Just describe it to the dealer in person and they'll figure it out. If they're unsure they'll just show you the diagram on their screen to make sure.
  7. 3sge revs up and down when cold

    You can still buy the gaskets new from any toyota dealer, pretty cheap. If you do a search, or it might even be in the stickies section, there's a guide on stripping and cleaning the IACV. If you get stuck then me or a few of the others can help. If you buy a used part then you risk it being as bad. They don't really go wrong as such, just get full of gunk then seize. A clean should be all that's needed.
  8. 3sge revs up and down when cold

    Yep, take it apart and clean the IACV and throttle body, will probably fix it for the price of two cheap gaskets. When did it last have a full service BTW? New plugs, oil and filters make a big difference too, and not too ££
  9. Just sharing a memory

    Not on the road, but at least Sorn is promising
  10. petrol smell

    Is it vented properly? The motorbikes I had in the past always had a vent tube running off the filler
  11. I imagine the difference is road legal plates and ones marketed as show plates. Road legal plates have to have the BS number (BS145 something?) and makers post code on, and they need to see your docs. Show plates dont and can be done over internet with no docs.
  12. Like an expectant father !

    Nice thread. I do like to see a car being kept original too
  13. I've wondered that recently myself, as I've upgraded the master cylinder on motorbikes before and it made a huge difference in power and feel
  14. Petrol prices :(

    I don't look at petrol price tbh, I just stick 25 or whatever amount in. But then I do use V POWER every time because of the cleaning addititives in it
  15. Decent FB blog

    http://not2grand.co.uk/not-2-grand-cars/celica/ That ones a little celica article but if you follow them on FB they do loads of stuff based on the cheaper end of the market. Good reading and quite funny at times too
