    Hilux Wont Start After Heating Up

    Hi Machang, I had a similar issue on my Surf (LN130) where it started well on Cold but the engine just died after a while of running. It turned out to be nothing more than a clogged Fuel filter and lines. This happened after I once ran the vehicle on very close to empty before I filled up the tank. Now I never let it get past quarter if I can help it.

    Lego Technic Supercars

    What a thread man, what an awesome thread........ So many memories flooding in :-) This is the only Technic model I had and loved way back when........ however I had tons of regular lego sets that I'd combined to make various different models. I've currently got a box full of Lego which is a combination of what me and my wife had, which my Son now Loves to build with... He's added in the small sets that we've bought him as well...... In fact I think I still have the 80's spaceman and some of those sets somewhere at my parents house.....must go exploring soon..... he he

    Presenting My Vintage Corolla!

    Jaliya, WOW !!! Machang props to you and your father for keeping it this way for so long. Indeed a breath of fresh air from what has been done to most KE72's. My father had a flat roof and then went in for a 'High Roof' sometime in the late 80"s...... Great car. Great times too : )

    Route To Trinco From Colombo

    The best time to travel would be very early in the morning........ Along Kandy road, to Ambepussa, turn off to Kurunegala, onto Dambulla, Habarana, Kantale an Trinco. http://maps.google.lk/maps?hl=en&safe=off&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.&biw=1440&bih=698&wrapid=tlif134622508248811&um=1&ie=UTF-8&gl=lk&daddr=trincomalee+sri+lanka&saddr=habarana&panel=1&f=d&fb=1&dirflg=d&geocode=KfviA8Njn_w6MWMOwbeRQ0ok;KSe-LZC2vPs6MbsPGzN6aud9&sa=X&ei=xMM9UNXZHc7trQeWzYGAAg&ved=0CB0Q9w8wAA If leaving Colombo after 7:30am, you have options to get to Kurunegala, through either Ja-ela to Narammala, Giriulla and Kuru. or through Pasyala on the kandy road to Narammala , Giriulla then Kuru. However the Kantale to Trinco strech is under construction and will take you ages to get through depending on time of day, traffic etc. If you feel you want to take an alternate (but longer and slightly faster ) route, you can turn off at kantale onto the Muththur road and get to Trinco through china bay.

    Want Help On Ford Laser(2000 Model)

    A very good car...if the previous owner has maintained it well. Be careful of rented out cars with the milage wound back...then again you might even come across a non rental with wound milage :-D Suspension is well suited for our roads, and unless hacked, does last a very long time.... Cant really think of any serious issues to look for, but then you are looking at buying a 12year old car...so look very well before buying. Parts in general are available and most internal parts are compatible with the Mazda BJ series models I have a 2002 Manual (BN) ....gets 9.5 to 10 in the City and abt 14 out...Been in the family for 10 years now and the fuel figures have been very consistent. All the best machang.
