  1. I already changed the box oil that was perfect. No metal pieces in it. We put the car on the bridge and put it in first gear. Moved the wheel and would hear squeaking in the gearbox on the opposite side of the differential.
  2. Thank you for your feedback. The knocking noise happens when the engine is cold and I believe that it is a matter of tolerance between parts in the gearbox. When the engine gets warmer the noise is lower but then I have the gear inserts problem. Mostly when the engine is warm sometimes at the red light I can’t even get any gear in until I have to push it in. If CV joints or cables would be faulty then the problem would be all the time but it happens sometimes. Back in the days when my mechanic replaced the gearbox with the same one because the third gear was making noise, I got a better workin
  3. @Claymorehi there. Long time no speak! I had a good good good time driving the car with the turbo engine and the Corolla 4efe gearbox. The gearbox wasn’t fresh it had already some synchronization issues plus probably the clutch master or slave release is leaking and it bothers putting in gears sometimes. I will replace them. Regarding the gearbox I still haven’t understood if Glanza V C56 is stronger and more reliable compared to my gearbox that should be a C140-150. My car is heavier compared to the starlet which means that shorter gears in the first gears help the engine and it is fun t
  4. I am trying to figure out if the 4efe manual gearbox C140, C150 from a Corolla E11 (that is matching a 4efte from a Starlet Glanza V ep91) has the same transmission as the C56 that matches a 4efte manual Glanza v. I want to put in a KAAZ 1.5 LSD transmission. Anyone? @Jay @Claymore
  5. Hello. I hope you are going to read this. I have swapped a 4efte ep91 eutomatic engine from a Glanza V into a Corolla E11 and I am in the process of changing the exhaust manifold with an external wastegate for the next step that is adding a piggyback. The plan was a DET3 but then I read about this standalone and I got curious. My engine is in the same situation as yours. Does the MT standalone ECU work with the auto to manual engine conversion? Let me know. Thanks!
  6. Hey guys I am planning to change the exhaust manifold with a turbo relocation kit with external wastegate. This means that I can use a piggyback to raise boost and finally Dyno the car and map the DET3. I am still looking for a base map that seems to be impossible to find for a 4efte. This said I would like to use the high/low boost solenoid to have the switch with two different boost pressures. What I need to know is if it is possible to make the solenoid work at different boost pressures. I heard that you can go low boost only if the set up is stock. Let me know what you think.
  7. Hey guys. I just wanted to share with you that my car won a price in the special car category over 600 cars!
  8. I have to say that I will continue using the stock thermostat. The problem I had with the spark plugs was probably caused by the engine recovery mode that I drove with a while due to the wrong wiring on the water temp sensor. I will check spark plugs in a few weeks to see if something changes but at least I will not blow the engine because of the liquid leak
  9. @ClaymoreI solved the problem changing the thermostat. The gasket was loose so the cover wasn’t sealing properly. This happened I think because are used a different thermostat that I don’t remember who suggested me was better to keep the engine temperature lower for the reason that the spark plugs were white gray. So I put back the OEM thermostat I had in the box and no more leak! Thank you for your help.
  10. It came from the new water pump 😂 Yes I did use all genuine parts
  11. I think that the reason ehy it leaks is the loose thermostat gasket.
