Re: Vibration at 70km/h?

Hello People! Well, I spent the whole day working on the car... Changed the Lower Control Arm Bushes, Lower Balljoints, Front and Rear Brake Pads (found 1 piston on the brake calliper stuck as well...).... Seems sweet again, but still a little bit of a vibration, so I'm going to try change the upper...

Re: Vibration at 70km/h?

Hmmm, this is really confusing me... I've had the car more than 2 years and never had anything like this.. I'm beginning to think the smell of clutch means that its on its last legs, maybe thats whats causing this coz it does slip a little when starting off, and since it started that, i've had this ...

Re: Vibration at 70km/h?

Vibration at 70km/h?

Hey everyone, My RS200Z seems to rumble around the 70km/h mark. Doesn't matter which gear, or if I'm accelerating or deccelerating, its still there, and you can feel it in the steering and through the pedals as well... If you slow down or speed up it goes... I have no idea what it is.. Also, my clut...

Multiple HIDs??

Hi All, I'm planning to install HIDs for my Fog Lights, Dim Lights and Bright Lights, but this means I will have a total of 6 Ballasts... will this be OK or will I be overloading my Battery / Power System? I do a lot of long distance driving and want to make sure I have more than enough Lighting as ...

Front Suspension Issues... Help!!

Hey everyone, My Tezzas been making a bit of a funny noise in front, and I sent it to Toyota Malawi who told me I need new Ball joints, and that my front bushes are gone, but they say I can't just buy the bushes I have to buy the entire control arms...

Hi Dan, Nope, my car is the 6-shot Manual... Every other car i owned stops dead in its tracks when you pull the handbrake - ie handbrake turn - but on the tezza, no matter what speed i do, if i'm moving forward, the handbrake will not stop the car, a buzzer will make a noise in the dash instead. The...

Not so handy handbrake!!

Hi guys, Our dodgy Toyota dealers in Malawi assure me that my handbrake is "electronic" ?? When driving, i can yank the handbrake up and all the car does is sound a beeper in the dash but doesnt grip.. However when i park the car and turn it off, the handbrake grips like it should. Is this...

Hi Guys, Everytime i hop into my Tezza and start it up, i hear a gargling noise coming from behind the dash.. it goes away after a few seconds of the car running, but i'm convinced it must be something to do with the Air Conditioner, does anybody know anything about this sort of noise?? Its driving ...

Got my Butt kicked...!

Gosh, went out today on a 1/4 mile burnout, and can't believe a Toyota Curren ST206 disgraced me!!! They have the 3SGE engine as well, and his car has no mods to the engine, how could it be more powerful than a Tezza RS200??? Anybody know of a quick and easy way of adding a bit of power other than t...
