Would a general mechanic be able to do this?or is it more a specialist toyota place.You could get it plugged into Techstream or similar to read the values on each injector + other features.
Anyone with Techstream or similar who understands it can do it. Can your mechanic ?
Do not take it to a main stealer, unless you have deep pockets.
The oil pickup/strainer is a good clue, which your mechanic seems to be on top of.
Techstream or similar will save you a whole lot of work and expense for an indication, without removing anything.
Not sure what's that's called but I've cleaned it a few times and it's still damp and reappearing so a small oil weap, so it's kind of suspicious to me oil should be on the inside of the engine unless it's in a gallon jar.Where's your oil leak? (Just out of interest!)
Checked for string couldn't see any.It maybe reflection off a shiny spring clip, but check that and the hose there anyway. The only thing roughly above that is the egr valve which may have a leak, they collect quite a bit of oily black s**t.
Thats what it started as black tar like gunk and now its just light oil like only just damp to the touch.It maybe reflection off a shiny spring clip, but check that and the hose there anyway. The only thing roughly above that is the egr valve which may have a leak, they collect quite a bit of oily black s**t.
I'd say the place I'm going to has something for sure.It doesn't have to be techstream, most garages won't use that but any pro tool should give access to live data. There's threads on here with some alternatives I think as techstream can be a bit of a pain to get going apparently
