    Members, If a member has any questions about old British, German, Italian, American Vehicles electrical problems, please do write your question to the AL forum. I will try to help. Because I have handled very early models from 1940 till 1962. Import restrictions came in 1962 to 1977. Sri Lankan mechanics and electricians used to rebuild, all defective units.

    Whilst I was away, my dad decided to install the side strips...sadly it is at a higher level than it should be so need to refit it... The ECU was dangling at the back of the center console...so again..dad had gotten a bracket made and stuck it behind the carpet When the car was taken to an AE85 Meet-up a few weeks ago...

    I' don't know about your family dynamics and it's not my place to advise you, but I can tell you that arguing with a partner over an accident is not worth it. Cars, no matter how precious they are to us, are replaceable. People that are close to you may not be. Just my two cents. Did you by any chance check if VTEC had changed the cars number plate covers to those that have their branding? They did this to me without asking (both front and back and the existing ones were perfectly fine) and I wasn't fond of it. I only noticed it after a couple of days after taking the car home. One disadvantage of having these plates is that VTEC motors brand is somewhat associated with accident repairs. So people might assume your car went through a massive accident even when it didn't.

    Your dad has a heavy vehicle. You need a heavy vehicle license to drive it. Simple as that. There are no shortcuts to this. What is your next question? Can I drive a car with a motorcycle license?

    A suggestion to the admins / moderators Why not upgrade the whole advert experience, pics are tiny, it looks dated, and hard to find stuff. Plus due to insane charges, the “famous site” has lesser ads by the day and it’s getting hard to get hold of a good vehicle there. Pretty much there’s no competition either, so why not use this opportunity to boost the advert section. We d all love to see this forum go on in every aspect. This is the oldest site here AFAIK

    Yes.....since that is a JDM spec maintenance plan...the initial 3 years is there because JDM brand new cars do not require a shaken inspection for 3 years and within that 3 years the fluids get checked by the manufacturer on an inspect and replace if required basis anyway. After the first three years...all cars require a shaken inspection every 2 years and the BF change is a blanket change every 2 years. Now....if you look at export model manuals, you will notice that the BF replacement ranges from 2 - 4 years depending on the car. My Fortuner requires inspection every 10,000km and replacement every 40,000km (so roughtly 3-4 years).

    You might feel as it is a Jurassic era...but it was an era where 99% of the threads were on projects, actual review of cars actually had some intelligent discussion with some light hearted banter. The AL forums were light years ahead in a far far away planet than those like Ela*i*i. Now 80% of the threads on AL forums are on people ranting about their fuel efficiency dropping by 0.789kmpl or which car they should buy to pump the least amount of petrol and spend as little as possible on maintenance and if they can buy an Audi for the same price of a Vitz and get the same fuel efficiency and similar lackluster maintenance or if a CHR in Maroon with a plastic bucket mounted would have more market value than a CHR in Yellow with a plastic alien face stuck on it. So..yeah...Jurassic era to purgatory. The difference between the AL forums and Ela*i*i is becoming a fine line that is getting finer by the day
