    Toyota Yaris blown head gasket or streched chain? HELP!

    Hi guys, yesterday the car was serviced, oil was changed, I chose Castrol Edge FST 5W-30, new oil filter and new spark plugs.

    Toyota Yaris blown head gasket or streched chain? HELP!

    I am using Dexos 2 5W-30. So sleeper what then is causing this trouble? 500 km more and i am going for an oil change, I change oil every 9000-10000 km. Should I switch to another type of oil, i.e Castrol 10W-30 since temperatures here in croatia rarely drops below -15 and goes over 35-40 degrees?

    Toyota Yaris blown head gasket or streched chain? HELP!

    There were no faulty codes except few months ago, when the engine was running rich and catalytic converter failed, but that was solved, check my last 2 videos that I posted about the oil cap. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QvzLr-ZVIJ4&feature=youtu.be

    Manual gearbox oil

    When do you need to change the oil in the gearbox, the car is Toyota Yaris 1.0 VVT-i, car has now 38500 miles (62000 km)? Sometimes it is difficult to change into reverse, you have to release the clutch or change in to some other gear but that also says in the handbook

    Audi A3 8P PD??

    Because in my country there's a stupid law that you cant drive anything over 85 kW if you are not 24 years old, you get a ticket if police catches you

    Audi A3 8P PD??

    130 is not an option, only to 85 kW are considered. What if I would change the injectors and maybe possibly change the turbo would it require any other bigger mechanical changes?
