    No MoT for 40 Year Old Cars

    Just thought I'd add something to this. When I took the celica for its first MOT under my ownership, I'd done everything I thought needed doing in terms of safety, including new discs and pads etc. I got a call to say the brake pipes had actually burst on the rollers during the test. Not the bits you can see, but the bit where they go under the plastic cover halfway down the car. Now, your average guy would be hard pressed to visually spot that. If it hadn't been picked up at the MOT when would it have gone? The first time i broke heavily at motorway speeds? If someone pulled out on me? I'm really glad the MOT test did what it was supposed to there.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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 ££

    petrol smell

    Is it vented properly? The motorbikes I had in the past always had a vent tube running off the filler
  9. 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.

    Like an expectant father !

    Nice thread. I do like to see a car being kept original too
  11. 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

    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

    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

    Grim spark plugs

    Just swapped these out of my daily driver, 2005 fiesta. Bought with no history and ive used it for a year now too. Thought it's due a service! Wonder when these were put in? Anyone pulled out worse? Lol
