Finally I got it running nice and quiet again. Flushed it a few times and had the oil going through a clean rag. Couldn,t spot any debris so now I declare it fixed. Something has happened to the front discs though. Brake was shuddering like crazy. There was no problem with that before i parked it in the garage, almost two years now. Lots of other projects came in between. New discs I guess... Sigh. I almost forgot how nice a car the coupe is during my two year engine fix so replacing the discs will be a quick one, and then...
Like many here, I've had my Coop for yonks - since 2003 (2nd owner) and yes I've had to invest in it to keep those years pushed back - but... my good lady and I see as a lifetime member of the family so it's not going anywhere. Plus my son has his eyes on it some time in the (hopefully distant) future.
Some cars just get under your skin and that's the end of it.
Carry on enjoying it Vinno - you know you want to !
Yes, they are T5. My leds are with separate polarity, a lot of work and tests when I replaced them on the Tacho. It could be the defective lamp holders, with the heat the dietal tabs move no longer making contact. These are the lamp holders that I used. You just have to fix them somehow.
@ graham: I think the 'OSC' I used was probably a more 'normal' one... I dont know about BG EPR - seems it could be a good option. I was actually going to try to 'blow air' into oilways supplying suspected cylinders/tappets... I hope the stuff BG EPR 'releases' goes in my oilfilter and not into the new bearings...
@CC: yes you're right - I already spent too much time on error hunting. and cyl 3 piston/rings needs to be inspected. As said 'strip' is my main next step...
I got one GT2560R, known as GT28R and I tried to change the orientation of the turbocharger so it has the oil drain downwards, aluminium exit downwards too and hot intake upwards to fit to the exhaust manifold plate. I can't figure out how to bolt on the wastegate actuator on the aluminium to make it work properly. Is there any part that I'm missing? I think that gt28rs has the same shape, so someone must know how to do it. Please help.
Bought my standard exhaust for 20VT from Online Automotive. Double skinned baffled with two boxes. Extremely quiet - much better than that annoying Toyosports (driving me mad). £180 + fittings if required. Its a quality exhaust, not the kwik-Fit (quick fall-off) budget variety! Some seem to like boomy exhausts some don't. I am very sensitive to low frequency boom so find it annoying after a while. After all, the main function of an exhaust is to suppress this noise and a straight through exhaust won't do this properly and would also be relatively cheap to manufacture. The car manufactuerer has invested considerable research in tuning an exhaust for the correct back pressure and damping and I am not sure the aftermarket ones are nearly so good in this respect. They may of course last longer if stainless, but I have never had an issue with a standard exhaust on any vehicle within around 8 years, as long as its of the original quality. Just avoid the cheap copies (which last 3 years at the most and are also much noisier).
When I did mine, took me some time to come up with a finish that was acceptable to me. I could not for the life of me get rid of the orange peel when spraying the gloss black. In the end, there were so many coats of paint on, I rubbed it with fine wet & dry, & polished the hell out of it. I was at it for days, on & off.
Agreed, the pitted finish that my second one came up with seemed immovable.
Then I remembered being daft enough to polish up a plenum some years ago, it took weeks. Got a lot of good advice during the process and learnt quite a lot also, especially never to do it again
Using a 380 grit wet-and-dry I was able to remove all the citrus stuff from the console eventually. I was quite glad not to keep going at it with acetone as it seemed to melt the plastic surface. Going through 1000, 1200, 1500 and 2500 grit in turn I've managed to get a passable surface on it now, with a final coating of decent paint restorer to polish it off.
That button with the white dot? It's the ejector seat, but it only works if you have a sunroof...
I haven't found the need to remove the balance shaft, or to lock it off, but one further potential advantage is that you can (if they're still available) get a 25mm wide cambelt conversion instead of the usual 19mm.
But that said, change the belt at 36,000 miles / 55,000 km or three years. If it goes, it's an engine wrecker...
