Am looking for a dead 3S-GE BEAMS engine for a project comparing a standard engine with one of the F3 engines. The engine can be pretty dead, even with rods sticking out of the side of the block, pr...

Re: IS200 half leather seats / door cards

Didn't have my good camera with me, so I had to use a crappy compact. Anyhow, some photos here:

Re: Engine misfire, engine light on, TRC light flashes

14 months later another coil pack decides its had enough. This one was harder to pin down, as visually it looked fine, but disconnecting each coil pack and fitting a temporary spark plug found one which didn't fire, and swapping that coil pack with another moved the problem, ruling out wiring harnes...

Re: Need Engine Help

Your engine has had a heart attack. Whether its a big one or a little one is unknown but its not good news. For a period of time the oil pump has not been able to pump oil. This means that there has been no oil going down the crankshaft, which means that the protective layer of film that sits betwee...

Re: recommended fuel for Altezza

I wanted to establish a true a picture as possible, and if that meant a couple of tanks of supermarket fuel, so be it. Sadly I'm going to draw the line at trying out the Sunoco 102RON octane race fuel our F3 Altezza engines drink (£ 3.80 per litre!) - although this is quite cheap compared to the 119...

Re: recommended fuel for Altezza

Since getting my Altezza I've been monitoring fuel consumption and trying different fuels. My daily usage is usually mostly the same so its fairly comparable. In terms of miles per tank, the best so far has been Tesco 99 octane fuel, getting 25 miles more per 50 litres than Shell 95 octane fuel. Tha...

Re: Engine misfire, engine light on, TRC light flashes

Well the F3 coil on plugs used by TOMS in Japan in 2002-4 are different. Its definately a coil - I can see insides of coil on the outside. New from Toyota £ 88.86, be here tomorrow morning. Will give it new plugs as well.

Will check other coils as well.
