    Yes I guess so. Any idea about slug issue? Isnt that slug forms due to poor oil change intervals?

    Best Engine Oil

    Hi all, My car is vios 2007 and milage is 115000 km....I bought it at the milage 99000km first I used toyota 15w40. But with that grade oil buring is much higher so my mechanic recommend to use monograde caltex super plus 40 and since then oil burning is bearly noticible. Is that monograde oil ok with my 1NZ engine? And seems like there is some slug in my engine and a mechanic said that toyota oils are slug makers. Is this correct?

    Toyota carina AT150 spare parts

    Hi all, I have a Toyota carina AT150 - YOM 1983 and havent run for a while. Im getting into re-modify the car. Engine is in running condition but the body is some what corroded eg. floor bords. Corroded parts have to be replaced with new metal sheets and the interior also need some modification. Does any one know shops/places where I can buy spare parts and do necessary mechanical work? I think nugegoda area is the place to start. Any specific shops? Thanks

    Vibration When Switch On The Ac

    Hi All, I have the same issue vios 2007(not belta vios). When car is in D with brakes applied lets say in traffic, car vibration is too much. When the compressor switches on there comes a big sudden vibration and it suddenly gets low after the compressor starts. But more vibration is there than without ac. I just checked my mounts myself and no break points can be seen. Odo is just 107000km. Im going to try a tune up.

    Vios power steering not enough

    There is no noise or jittering. Yes tightness is there for the both sides. Then the problem is in the pump as you said. If so should I have to change the pump or can it be repairable?

    Vios power steering not enough

    No there are no leaks, and I changed the oil also. Went to a mechanic and he said that there is no problem with the belt. He said that there can be a problem in the rack. He checked from under but couldn't find any reasons. Can a rack problem cause this?

    Toyota vios oil bulb on and off

    Then engine number says 1.5L 1NZX I think this is the same engine as in axio, yaris and 121 apart from the capacity.

    Toyota vios oil bulb on and off

    Thanks buddy. Yes I'm going to change the oil after some run. Now I'm using caltex super +40 oil. Is this oil is good? it is lot more cheaper(Rs 2800/=) than Toyota or Havoline oil(around Rs 4000+).

    Toyota vios oil bulb on and off

    Yes the mechanic I went see also said about checking the oil pressure switch. Now this problem has gone away. No more oil bulb lights up. That mechanic also sail that even though the oil bulb not lighting up there may be some parts of the engine not getting lubricated well enough due to sludge issue. Can this be true. And also he said that Toyota oil is the cause of the sludge issue. He said to use another oil instead of Toyota oil. Is this true?
