    Blue Smoke

    So the mrs calls me the morning reporting smoke coming out of the engine as she was reversing up the drive. I told her to turn it off and not to drive it till I could take a look...

    Oscillating Multi Tools

    I am after one of these and have no clue as to which one I should buy. Not going to be used loads as it's only for home use, but the range is surprising, from cheepo Erbauer ones at £70 to Makita, Dewalt and Bosch ones going for £100's. Not looking for battery powered versions, and this DeWalt...

    Tight Steering on 120

    So I have had this problem on and off for about 4 months but it has got much worse recently. Basically steering is quite tight when turning either left or right. Takes some effort. When it first started I changed the power steering fluid as is was definitely past it's best but this made no...

    Interesting Morning

    There I was cruising up the A1 on the way to work, when I hear a bang...... Hmmm I think to myself, that's not good best I pull over and just take a quick safety check. Come off the gas doing 70mph, and drift over from the outside lane and stop in the lay-by some 300 yards later. I step...

    Body Shop Recommendation

    So as my 120 approaches its 12th birthday I thought it's about time to treat it to a bit of a refurb. Thinking about a general body touch-up, fix a flapping bonnet and also some rust patching under the sills and also some sort of chassis rust treatment. Wheels could do with some attention too...

    Brakes: Disks and Pads

    Poor Service From Main Dealer

    So my 120 had the MOT test last week and failed on a split CV boot, which I asked the MOT place (not Toyota) to change the part as I had no time to do so, and they then passed it. It then went for a service yesterday and I get a call from the Toyota stealer with the following noted: Pollen...

    120 Loss of Power and Fuel Leak

    About a week ago I got into the 120 after not having driven it for a while (Mrs daily drive) and I says to the Mrs, hmmm there's a bit of a diesel smell, can you smell that.... "Yeah now that you mention it..." :doh: So I have a look around the usual suspects but can't see where it's coming...

    Front Windscreen Defroster

    Having a odd problem with my front windscreen defrosted on my 120, it's a LC4 so not the fancy touch screen jobbie. If you press the front defrost button, the LED on the button comes on, and it switches to the defrost mode (out of auto), but the fan blower does not speed up as expected. If you...
