  1. Is this Fuel Cut?

    Appreciate these other responses guys. The engine management light doesn't come on when it happens and I've not ruled out it could be HT leads or plugs so im hoping to replace these asap too. I've read that way of describing fuel cut before and i wouldnt say this is the same.. first time it happened I actually thought I'd hit a pot hole and it'd popped out of gear somehow. Im looking more into it as i type but I've noticed today it happens at 4k revs specifically and last time i got a big pop from the exhaust too. I'm not gonna be driving it daily till this is sorted now as im scared I'll hurt my baby!    
  2. Is this Fuel Cut?

    This makes perfect sense as I've had the car from about may.  Yes! a boost gauge sounds like a wise investment. amazingly quick reply man. Thanks :)
  3. Is this Fuel Cut?

    Hi guys I've started to get an issue recently and im not sure if it's fuel cut related. I'm puttin my foot down, the car starts to accelerate, all 3 boost lights come on( ), but then the car seems to judder for a second and I lose all acceleration until I pull my foot off the pedal and put it back down again (although my instinct is to do this straight away so i can't really say if it would stay off or kick back in). It doesn't seem to happen when I accelerate more gently even to full boost. It's most notable in 2nd gear I guess beause of the revs/boost building up faster but I've had it happen in 5th.  I've had the car with no previous UK owners so don't have any record of the boost being turned up and wouldnt really have a clue how to check but i've always thought it was standard. It's only started happening recently as well. If it was fuel cut would it have happened from day 1 with the boost turned up from the previous owner? any help appreciated in finding out what this is

  5. 1996 Glanza v Parcel shelf

    Apologies guys I know there are a few threads relating to this already. I've just been on the phone to my local toyota parts centre and after telling me they could get one for about £21 posted they've told me its been discontinued... Most of the posts about this say its about the £15 mark and people don't seem to have trouble getting one :s Am I calling the wrong toyota garage here or has the price been updated and then just discontinued. can anyone shed some light on this?

    So here we go.. managed to get hold of a 96 model within my price range (ish) ;) and around 70k on the clock Been driving it for about a week and loving every second. At the moment I'm going to just try and restore her to her former glory and get rid of any cracks/chips on the paintwork and touch up the inside a tad. only one bad photo I'm afraid.

    Thanks dude appreciate the help
  10. Glanza choices

    Ahh wondered if it was bought by someone on here and if I'd see it again. Just had a quick look at your thread about it. Glad to see its destined for big things! New question for any users here. Have been coming across Japanese auction sheets and wondering if anyone has been able to find a way to translate the Inspectors comments. I managed to look up the annotations listed on the cars for scratches, dents and rust etc but am pretty sure they write up mechanical faults with the car in a particular box on the sheet. anybody come across this before?

    Thanks bud. The car was sold by the time I got back to the guy so first come first served I guess Anyone selling a white glanza (pref post facelift but not a dealbreaker) with little or no mods give us a shout!
  12. Glanza choices

    Ok cheers mate. Link for the car in question here. Have also found the seller listed under a different name on facebook here. So they've said no to a compression test.. They've stated their reasons as "to do a compression test is not appropriate as the top mount intercooler need to be removed and also spark plugs" Not sure if they're trying to avoid it here or just concerned about someone unqualified carrying out the test and causing a problem.... no way to know for sure I guess but it doesn't sound great. My uncle is hopefully going to see the car soon to give it a once over as he's a little more experienced in the used car buying department. Will hopefully have an update later in the week!

    Morgey - Appreciate this mate, Its from the Birmingham area this one. wish I had a longer response to show gratitude for the advice, Thanks. Haha, little reluctant to do this in case its a secret beaut that gets snapped up by someone forum browsing... WIll post it soon though, are direct links to cars for sale on a certain bidding based site ok to put up on here or against forum rules?

    Hi guys Have been thinking of getting a Glanza for a while now and finally test drove one nearbyish the other day - of course I now have to own one. I'm no car expert so just need some advice on how much I should be looking to spend, The difference in quality between different sellers and your experiences with buying your Glanzas. I'm looking for a (mostly) unmodified Glanza V. The one I test drove the other day had 80k (KM) on the clock and is going for £4000. Its a fresh import but with no BIMTA certified milleage or history, Its not from a well known dealer and the guy couldn't offer me a warranty. What are my chances of getting ripped off here? I've done a lot of research and it seems parts are readily available until I realise the posts i'm reading are 10 odd years old! are these cars still going to be easy to maintain if I buy a dud? The car itself seemed good condition; just had an oil change, coolant looked nice and clear, engine pulled smoothly and the interior was relatively clean and quiet. As i say though. "no expert" had a few mods as follows. Stainless steel exhaust. Uprated suspension Boost gauge Turbo timer connected to the handbrake. Love the info on here. really great site and any help is appreciated. Hope this post is ok to be here and just tell me off if not, wont happen again!
