Re: Is200 security light flashing.

Not sure on this but I presume you havent got a spare key that you can try? Have you looked inside the box where the ECU lives to seen any signs of damage or water etc?

Re: IS300 Clutch Master Cylinder

Not sure on this one myself but it would be useful to know, as it is for any parts that are or aren't interchangeable between the IS200/300 and the RS200 :)

Re: Altezza Turbo for sale

Sounds good and sensible price! Good luck with the sale.

Is there any way you can put links to photos elsewhere maybe to help your sale?

Re: Fuse/relay question.

It does sound like eletrical gremlins from relays or wiring or that you have got some water in somewhere (on the ECU maybe?) For the fuel gauge though, its got to be worth taking the rear seat out and pump out to check the flaot and change the fuel filter while you are there. i put off changing my f...

Re: Looking for a flywheel

Mine has had a solid, lightened flywheel all the time I have had the car and the previous owner fitted it. He told me it was the one off ebay which is this one: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TOYOTA-ALTEZZA-2-0-SXE10-3SGE-LIGHTENED-AND-BALANCED-FLYWHEEL-/361477725705?hash=item5429c05e09:g:19QAAOxy5QtSAhG...

Re: Compression test ?!

It will vary dependant on age and condition but the most important thing is that it is fairly consistant across all cylinders. If there is more than 10% difference in any of them then something is up. For reference, mine got 158 - 160 - 160 - 165 when I did it last year or so. Some engines get more ...

Re: VVTI not engaging .

How long has the oil been in there? If a while, give it a fresh oil and filter change with 5w30 oil and see how it feels after that?

Re: Clean altezza

TBH, I'm not sure on good ones but at least there are a good few over your side of the water - they are very rare to come up for sale over here (although admittedly a few more have changed hands recently)

When I bought mine in November 2014 there were only two on ebay in UK!

Re: Service manual

Yeah, dont buy that one cos I'm pretty sure that it is one that I already have that I got hold of ages ago. It is ok but does only cover engine. Im not convinced that I have all of it though - it is 28 pages long and covers this lot: http://i.imgur.com/dTcA62A.jpg So I dont know if the pages before ...

Re: Service manual

If you can find the link and we can get a few of us to share the cost then that's no problem if the manual can be separated as we have got a copier here at work and I can feed the pages is and do a pdf copy of it easily ;) Thanks for the other link, I also found that one before and used it when I ha...
