  1. Hi Friend, Thanks for your infor. Could you pls let me know from where I could buy prestone radiator flush in Sri Lanka?
  2. According to the Toyota Repair Manual for his Auto Box, if negative observations received upon above tests, they are the 90% possible causes. I am sorry that is only what I can say.
  3. Did you check all the tests? Is delay there for all tests?
  4. Dear @Asanka Pubudu, Check following tests and based on results of each test, I am giving tips you which should focus on ( 90% likely). 1) Testing from N to R 1.1) By pressing break pedal, shift selector from "N" to "R". 1.2) Gear should be changed within 1.2 seconds. If NOT, possible causes, A ) Too low pressure in oil lines. B ) Wear of the reverse clutch. C ) Wear of the break of the first gear and reverse gear. D) The clutch of the lower planetary series if faulty. 2) Testing from N to D 2.1) By pressing break pedal, shift selector from "N" to "R". 2.2) Gear should be changed within 1.4 seconds. If NOT, possible causes, A ) Too low pressure in oil lines. B ) Wear of the forward clutch. C) The freewheel clutch No. 2 and the Clutch of the lowering planetary series are faulty. Above are the recommendations of Toyota. So first off check whether your oil level is OKAY and Oil age is within the service period. If not either you will have to repair the gear or buy a reconditioned one.
  5. Dear @Splat, Were you able to buy plastiguages in SL? I am also looking for few these days.. Problem is cannot order from outside country, since almost all mail services are doing a limited service.
  6. Dear Hasindu, You can not use ECU and therefore the wire harness on one engine to a completely different engine. Because ECU is programmed only to control its relent engine and not others. Therefore you need to use the ECU relevant to the engine you are going to replace.
  7. My Dear @thushanthatj, Here are some advises before you buy the vehicle. 1) Check the accident history of the vehicle. This can be easily done if you know an insurance guy who can find information from all the insurance companies. If accident claims has not been requested by the owners then this is not successful. In that case what you have is the genuineness of the owner. His profession, whether he is a car dealer, how long he has used this car. 2) Check whether they have a repair history. Ask from owner to which repair center the car has been gone. You can get the details from such repair centers and also there are some limitations. 3) Second hand market. Since this is a modification, when you are going to sell this car in future, majority will not expect such a modification. In fact there is a minority who love modifications and you might be limited to that group one day. 4) Check Body, Mechanical and Electrical parts of the car. You have to check the mechanical performance of the car. Even though it is a new engine and has done less mileage make some check. First check the engine sound, since this is a new engine there should be no unnecessary noises. Check Idle RPM at warm up, check what happens to RPM when AC is turn on. Check the interior parts are in good condition since these are very rare to find in the market. After warm up by pressing the break pedal move the gear from N to R the gear should be changed within around 1.5 seconds. Do same for N and D and it should be within 1.2 seconds.
  8. Dear @Kavvz, OKAY my friend.. BDW Could you please remove the negative vote (if you made) to my first comment?
  9. My Dear @Crosswind, I think it is you who have totally gone mad. There are no successful scanners available for OBD I. Please talk only if you know anything. Toyota has not declared scanners to find fault codes for OBD I. It is the bulb sequence (when TE1 and E1 connected) that gives the error code and it is only few number of errors in OBD I unlike OBD II where there are more than 100 errors. In every Toyota OBD I repair manual there are no scanners to be connected for read parameters it is only the oscilloscope and the voltmeter to read them. I think you know very little in electronics industry, that even a Grade 5 Student knows that mili second scale oscilloscopes are available in the online market just for 40 -50 bucks. For your information I am publishing how such readings are tested for both EFI ECU and ABS ECU in OBD I toyota models. If you don't know anything much shut the f**k up. Attched first pic is for EFI parameter readings. Attached send and third pic are for ABS parameter readings. Dear @Asanka Pubudu Don't waste your money to buy an OBD I scanner to read fault codes. You can easily do that by connecting TE1 and E1 (in ECU) OR Tc and E1 ( in ABS) short and count the Engine alarm bulb sequence. In internet you can find what is meant by the fault code. From time to time ( from 1985 to 2000) and from model to model there are slight changes in fault code meanings so better you find the code set relevant to your model.
  10. IN OBD1 systems specially toyota, there are no common diag socket to show error codes of all the subsystems in addition to EFI and ABS. In fact those days the electronics were not as advanced as today, that some errors are not programmed to monitor and hence not given. Actually what we have to do is probe an oscilloscope to the outputs and check for the manufacturer recommended signal pattern. ABS and SRS give errors from their controlling modules in OBD era. But I doubt Tire Pressure sensor would be connected to the central diag system. I think for that you need to check the performance tests from voltmeter and oscilloscope using the manufac manual. This does not say EFI ECU, ABS ECU do not have such performance tests to be done with osci and volt meter. There are lots of tests in OBD1 to be done. If you are interested in first off I recommend to find your repair manual and check.
  11. Try to be at least sensitive to that gentleman's age. Have some respect at least for those who do not harm u..
  12. This forum has gone wild with rodents... No respect to adults nothing...and nothing other than boasting... time to be smart from now on...
  13. Dude he has not bought it yet I guess... your comment will urge him to buy...
  14. My Dear Friend, Well lot of compromise is there... it depends on the community, 1) When considered with safety modern vehicles win. Modern vehicles are designed such that its structure prevent direct impact to the passengers. Air bags are default in modern but when compared with modern budget vehicles, both structure and air bag features are not available most of the time. 2) Efficiancy and Consumption, well this depends on the budget of the individual. Just think buying an Aqua with economy of 20ltr avg. which may lead one to pay extra 10laks and buying an AE100 or FB15 or AT210 with economy 10ltr avg. Breakeven point is after around 10 years if he gets a loan to fulfill that extra 10laks for aqua. 3) Maintenanance cost. Well if one is smart maintenqnce cost is quite less in 90s than that of modern. What my final point in this thread is not to tell 90s are better than modern. But they still have some value that relevant authorities, communities and organisations should focus...
