  1. My friend that was a long story. I rather have a Carina AT 192. This tapping engine is my third engine. First engine was my old one. Second engine was the starting problem you are referring which the maka bass had left the timing belt without proper tension which made three valves bent and the engine totally destroyed. This tapping is my third. What to do.. life is like that for some ppl...
  2. Dear Fellas, I bought a reconditioned engine with a mileage of 60000 km assured. With careful inspection the engine was in very good condition. But when I replaced my old engine, with this reconditioned one, tapping noise comes. This sound comes from left side of the engine. Checked following and confirmed OKAY. I 1) Valve clearance. 2)Timing belt. 3) bearing caps of crank shaft. What is this noise? Any expert can give the correct answer ?
  3. 5A-FE engine, Gasoline and Auto.
  4. Hi All, I bought a reconditioned engine and replaced it at Sunil Motors Boralesgamuwa. After two days of the replacement, in the morning I went to the emission and it was passed. Then I waited around at home 1hr and started to go to a near by place. After around 1.5km the car was suddenly stopped. There was an AC Idle issue due to Sunil Motor mechanic adjusted wrongly. I adjusted normal idle correctly but could not adjust AC idle valve since I had no proper allen key for that. So for all earlier trips I did not switch in AC. For this small trip I had to use AC since my wife was with me in car. When idling engine is stalling since not enough air. Kind of this happened before the sudden stop. I tried several times to start but engine rpm rises comes back to zero. Forcefully I peddled accelerator and got into a nearby spaced area. While I was forcefully peddling I engine gave a huge thud noise.  Mechanic came and tried to rotate the engine. Engine locks at one point when turning. I still cannot think what happened. Because, 1) Engine was a very good one since we carefully inspected rubber hoses, sensors, coolant passages, cam shafts, even the thermostat was like a brandnew one. 2) After the replacement I drove around 50kms and nothing was wrong in the engine. If mechanic had misaligned the timing belt this could have happened sooner. Am I ryt? Anyway mechanic will start to dismantle engine on tuesday. Highly appreciate your comments.
  5. Engine oil was full and clean. Since this is a new engine I always checked oil level and coolant level for any reduction before a trip, middle of a trip and end of a trip. Sure I will.

  7. Hi all, Based on your experience could u pls recommend a good mechanic in kottawa, maharagama or rathmalama or near by area? I need to replace my engine with a new one...
  8. Mistakes happen and initially I calculated the risk factor.. I carefully followed toyota engine repair video and manual.. only the problem is expensive tools such as a torque wrench. I too am gona buy it soon.. so I have no fear of doing it.. though I haven't touched engine inside before I have some experience on other stuff of my vehicle..
  9. Guys I did the gasket replacement myself. These are the main points, 1) There are no steel gaskets since the OEM is also an elite gasket. 2) OEM too closes some of the water or air passages through both head and block. 3) Bought FUJI gasket exactly similar to the original ( 100% confirmed). 4) Resurfaced the head. 5) Cleaned the block. 6) Checked for warpage and cracks. Nothing found as such. 7) Did the gasket replacement. 😎 Tightned the 10 bolts passing through head and block without a torque wrench. 9) Started the engine. 10) Radiator cap showed air bubbles. These are not like soap bubbles but one bubble coming out periodically. 11) Seems my gasket replacement has failed. 12) Any advise for what next???????????
  10. Okay friends... I decided to make the engine overhaul on my own. Could you please help me to find following details ? 1) I found 3 japan ( only origin is japan, manufacturing may in overseas plants) piston ring brands. They are RIK, NPR and TP. Could you please help me to select the best one? 2) Today I got the faced head and noticed there are few cavities. Is the JB weld in following video link will help me to fill it?
  11. Actual Toyota part are too much high in price... reconditioned engine would provide all of them one tenth or lesser than that...
  12. Hi, Thanks all, finally today I disassembled the engine and checked for repairs. The piston nearest to the gearbox has a play. No cavities in the head, however I gave head to Lal & Nihal for head facing ( 3700.00). For the moment I can only repair head. Later thought of replacing the engine block without repairing.. What is your suggestion? If I repair engine block pistons, rings and other things are not in same japanese quality. If I replace the full engine block with a known low milage then I get original japan parts... these are my thoughts.. could you please share your views on this?
  13. Dear All, After a long time I am again asking your valuable experience and knowledge on auto mechanics.. My engine head gasket is blown ( 5A-FE). Seems it's affected to an air passage, since air bubbles are coming out when RPM reaches 2500. Also no oil is visible. Problem is I want some time to get it fixed myself. Usually I am not used to give any kind of a bass for repair since almost all had done damages rather than repairing my car.... I am expecting to finish this on this Saturday. It is around 1 month now after I came to know that the gasket is blow. Radiator was replaced by a new one and working well.
