    I have a KIA Sorento 2008 version and recently I had to crank quite hard to get it started(early in the morning). Yesterday it didn't start at all. when the mechanic checked, he told me that all four Glow Plugs are not working. Replace those four plugs and with working battery tried o start. But still not working. Dash lights are working. Any sort of a helping thought is appreciated. Thanks

  9. Hi, I have TOYOTA IST 2003 (NP60) and recently it has been operated with a bad fuel consumption.Usually it operates 10/12 , but currently it operates like 8/10.Last year I have bought her, and since then I haven't done a Engine Tune up for Like Year. I think it might be causing for the low fuel consumption. But finding a reasonable & trust-worthy place to do a engine tune up is little bit harder than finding a Unicorn in these days .And will there be anything more to the Low Fuel Consumption, rather than the Engine Non-Tune up. So do help me out with your personnel experience in selecting a good place or person do an Engine Tune up. Thanks
  10. Thank you very much Prangi
  11. Hi, Can somebody share a link for the Catalog of Toyota IST (NCP60)? I've searched number of sites, but still no luck. A PDF version will be great. Thanks.
  12. Hi, I'm in-need of a TOYOTA IST(NCP60- 2003) ABS Sensor for the right rear wheel.For like , 2 months ago while I was driving,suddenly the ABS & Handbrake indicators on Dashboard were lit up. But after a engine Re-start the indicators was inactive and showed up again when the car was running. Did a scan and determined that there is a problem with the ABS indicator @ the Right Rear Wheel , which is needed to be replaced. I have checked with the Toyota Spare Parts, but they only have the Full set which will cost at around 30K LKR. So do help me out with the information on where to buy a Brand new ABS sensor for the particular model. Thanks.
