Re: rear spoiler pitting

Note it’s only the side pieces which pit. Moisture can get under the body seal and it becomes trapped. After it heats up in the sun it will migrate through fibreglass and cause putting on surface. After I cleaned and painted the underside of my old gen1 spoiler the problem went away. Might as well d...

Re: rear spoiler pitting

My take on this problem is moisture working it’s way from the underside which causes the issue. This is why it happens on side pieces and not on rear section. Need to remove each part and coat inside with a sealing paint before refinishing top coat.

Re: What to replace while engine out of car

+1 on the OEM throw out bearing (TOB). Actually I'm a fan of going with the whole OEM clutch. Very few aftermarket clutch kits will ever last to 150,000kms!

Re: For Sale Toyota MR2 MK2 revision 5

As a matter of being curious did the UK get rev 5 turbo's?

Re: For Sale Toyota MR2 MK2 revision 5

Didn’t realise they made rev 5’s outside of Japan. Do all the UK versions lack passengers air bag and have the older style steering wheel?

Re: For Sale Toyota MR2 MK2 revision 5

Must be a special UK version rev 5 as it lacks some of the bits from JDM models.

Re: What to replace while engine out of car

That's a hard question to answer as anything can require repair especially with installing a used engine with unknown history. My philosophy is to not replace things which are not broke as often you will create problems in doing so. Tackle any maintenance items which would be required in short term ...

Re: Clutch problems

How did you bleed the clutch fluid? If it was done like brakes it is wrong.

Re: Mr2 MK2 intercooler Fan motor leaking?!?

I'd pull off the hot IC pipe leading into the IC and inspect internals. Many of them collect oil from engine vapours and condenence inside pipes. looks like a joiner is directly above fan motor.

IC fan motor is controlled by engine bay sensor located on the lid.

Re: Unusual Boost Leaks ?

If you wanted to repeat the test without the engine running you could apply 12V to it and it'll keep it closed. Can't remember which pin is which, BGB may help. IIRC middle pin is ground, the two remaining pins move it in either direction. Best check though! That’s a good idea. BGB has a test proce...

Re: Unusual Boost Leaks ?

Looks like you have eliminated the BOV. On the IACV it is generally in a partially open position when no power supplied. The ECU will close as engine warms up and if positive boost applied. They are known to stick so best to check operation. Most I’ve seen are very gummed up and even rusted so bad t...

Re: Unusual Boost Leaks ?

Try blocking off or eliminating the blow off valve. Sounds like the diaphragm may be damaged and it’s opening but not reseating itself.

Another long shot is the IACV located on underside of TB. These can stick open and leak boost back into intake.

Re: Inner turbo CV joints

Basic CRW S1 kit is the way to go. There was group purchase last year for somewhere around the $100USD mark which included cages, bearings, can, boots and seals. Bit of a pain to do but worth doing. Search through the US forums for some decent instructions, pics and video on how to install. Most peo...

Re: Passenger Window Stuck

That's what I thought with the MK2 (SW20) but due to circuit going through drivers side control some funny things can happen. This is especially true when a wire is partially broken and cannot pass full motor current due to a high resistance. The other fault is a corroded and broken ground wire with...
