  1. Happy 2 Anniversary ViViTation!

    what have you done to your celica today...

    Just ordered EBC discs and pads for the rear; £50 on a well known auction site. Last week a garage quoted me £63 for pads and they didn't have a listing for discs! Do some garages exist in some strange nether world?!

    Hmm, sometimes the simplest advice is best; will check it out.

    Both lambda sensors replaced but engine management light's come on again; hmm, what's next on the list?

    My local garage changed my radiator last year and explained that the cooling system on these cars is a real pain to fill and to bleed the air out of. Something to do with the relative height of the coolant tank to the radiator.

    Happened with mine but as with most things on this car, it's quite pleasant that it's not a particularly pricey fix. (Love this car).

    You might find that the other lambda sensor will need replacing quite soon. OIl and filter changed today. 125k miles. Ho hum... Winter tyres fitted Saturday morn, just in time for the snow.

    Lambda sensor and seized hand brake cable replaced; rear calipers refurbed. £270. Bit of a stinger but part of the deal for a 125k daily driver...

    Hmm, engine management light's back on; maybe the other lamda sensor's gone. Also one of the new front shocks (quite cheap on eBay) has developed a fault - slight oil mist. Dubious bargain...

    Faulty pre-catalyst lambda sensor replaced today. £70 for the part and labour. Glad to see the engine management light switch off.

    hope you put the under tray back on (fiddly fittings) new front shocks fitted yesterday

    Checked front shocks. Passenger side leaking. Aha! No wonder the car's been behaving like a slightly dodgy roller skate. New pair ordered for fitting next week.

    What's the total cost of the front discs and caliper assemblies?
