    Defecting from Toyota

    If you ever need to cross a ford, or flooded road beware the air intake is behind the front grill quite low. Never owned one but I'm not keen on VAG vehicles, not their looks or how they drive but their engines and working on them.

    I was reading a thread the other day about similar issues, check your pedal for the accerlator position sensor and carefully remove the enclosure of the sensor, give the pcb and spindle a good clean whilst rotating the pedal. I can't find the thread now but I think it was on ih8mud.

    Non starter

    I'm a bit sketchy on LPG, but if it runs fine on petrol but lumpy on the LPG check all the ignition components as LPG will highlight a weak ignition component way before it will effect running on petrol

    Automatic Transmission Failure

    99% certain you have a built in oil cooler in the radiator and it's showing typical signs it's failed, best bet is to check the coolant and ATF fluid, flush the ATF fluid and replace it with new stuff and replace the radiator, but do investigate. The tranny is pretty robust so should be fine...

    strange starting problem

    I'm thinking its due to your low compression readings, you could crack the fuel lines at the injectors and observe the fuel being delivered whilst the engine is being turned over.
