    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. The noise that is coming from the engine is caused by a stretched timing chain, but it is not too critical since when you rev up the engine the noise dissapears when oil...

    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??

    Well, actually you need 4 years of driving experience

    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?

    Audi A3 8P PD??

    I was thinking about some modifications besides remapping, performance modifications like hp and torque. Does fitting a bigger turbocharger and of course larger nozzels necesariliy mean putting new low compression pistons or any other type of mod to compensate a new turbo?

    Audi A3 8P PD??

    I don't like Golfs, i don't say that they are not good cars and all that but i just don't like them :???: Leon would be a good choice, also I've seen a guy taking from a 1.9 TDi Toledo from stock 150 hp to a enormous 290 hp and 536 nM of torque without smoke :blink: Most of those i like the Audi...

    Audi A3 8P PD??

    I'm about to buy a new car, it will be a diesel with not over 85kW. I thought about Audi A3 1.9 TDi 105 hp PD. Are these PD engines good? Also i was thinking about Alfa Romeo 156 1.9 JTD, Toyota Corrola 2.0 D4D, BMW 318D E46? Any advice would be apreciated :bigsmile:

    BMW 330d

    Well I found a 330d with 5 speed gearbox, 93000 miles, most of them on a highway, I'm looking forward to check it out ASAP...and also a 320d 150 hp, with 80000 miles. Also taxes in my country from 2013 for luxury stuff, like cars is dropping so I might wait.

    BMW 330d

    So to finalize (sorry Geraint), is there a possibility that a remap can wreck my gearbox? (5 speed)? What about a gearbox on 320d with 150hp?

    BMW 330d

    I know about the 6 speed but about the 5 speed...My problem is that i can't find a 330d with 6 speed gearbox in my country that is with my budget, i have something around 7500, 8000 euros, and 330d with 6 speed is about 10k :mad:

    BMW 330d

    Can it harm the gearbox? Should I do a custom remap for lower torque? I believe you ask that because of the registration plates...this particular ones are custom made, but originally for my country (Croatia) is i.e ZG-545-GH.

    BMW 330d

    BMW 116d chip tuning or remap

    Hello, I was thinking about chip tuning my BMW it is a 2.0 turbo diesel with 115 hp. Any info about this engine? And one more question why BMW (and others) make a 2.0 engine with 115, 140 and 170 hp or Mercedes a 2.2 with 136, 170 and 205? (these number are NOT accurate) And that 2.2...

    Mercedes C220

    What do you mean, a lot of wiring? If it is such a big problem about puting the cdi engine then id rather put that 2.0 kompressor, i think that is a pretty good engine.
