Oil Issues

Hey guys ! A few weeks ago, I posted that I had some oil issues with my 2000 Celica with 1ZZ-FE engin. I have some news that may interest some peoples here. I don’t know if it’s the same thing out of France, but here is the Toyota’s answer : I have to replace the complete engin bloc and it ins’t financed by Toyota.

Why ?
Because of the piston rings. The oil ring has dirty oil stuck in and it can’t work properly, so engin burns oil, carbon deposits comes and all that stuff.

Solution ?
Replacing short block (I think that’s called like that) for a new one. New pistons rings have been modificated to drain oil properly, but they replace all pieces around to prevent new leaks and be sure that the problem is solved.

Who is concerned ?
And that’s the interesting part! I can’t give you here precisely chassis numbers impacted by this issue (I have chassis numbers but I prefer give it inbox if someone what to know), but I think that the problem is solved after year 2002.

What about now ?
I don’t have money to replace my engin, and I think it isn’t so bad. Last week, I putted some cleaner in my oil (Wynn’s) and oil consumption is dropped (250 km without any oil added, before, I added 0,5L every 500km). I think my engin can’t live like that if I clean it every oil change and it’s cheaper than an engin change. I don’t exclude to change my engin but not now.

Hope that helped ! Sorry for english mistakes !

1995 dashboard lighting

Is the 6th gen celica supposed to have any type of dashboard lighting? Mine has none at all.

Exhaust

I want a new and more aggressive sounding exhaust for an ‘03 Celica GT, but also don’t want to break the bank. What would be good?

Crash update

Just a quick update guys. So as you know I was in an accident recently. I thought the other guy would be cool but since we’re both minors our parents are dealing with it. Well apparently someone has been lying and telling their parents false information saying I admitted fault at the scene. Which I did not. She’s now decided that she won’t file a claim on her insurance, but to force mine to pay for her sons car. I’m really mad right now guys
