I have a problem with my Toyota Hiace euro11 2007 model. We changed the spark plug and also cleaned the fuel injectors but if the vehicle`s on petrol then it`s still missing and when it`s on CNG then it`s running good. When we cleaned the fuel injectors now the fuel efficiency is not good, it`s eating too much fuel now. Can anyone help me out please?

Hi. My Toyota Hiace 1kz turbo diesel is starting badly. It always starts but when it starts it`s rough and the motor shudders with a bang . I glow it 2 or 3 times which sometimes helps but not always. I replaced the glow plugs and checked they all work. Maybe it`s the fuel pump timing but it runs mint when going. Any ideas would be helpful please? Thanks. (1kz turbo diesel)

Hi there, I have a Toyota Hiace 01 and after I bought it I started to get central locking problems gradually until it just stopped working. I then had a replacement installed which has worked great until yesterday, when it was making a quieter locking sound and not locking and now all of a sudden it’s stopped. Unfortunately they key on all doors but the passenger door does not work from the outside. As you can imagine this is annoying. I’ve been told that the solenoids could be knackered but then I phoned an auto electrician who said they won’t know till they look at it at an expense of £150. Any help would be appreciated. Does anyone have any idea as to what it could be?

I have a 2000 Toyota Hiace and the hazard lamps are stuck on, although they aren’t flashing and will not respond to the dashboard switch. I had to disconnect the batteries in order to turn them off. I am suspecting a malfunctioning flasher unit and/or water ingress? Prior to this the van had not been run for about five days. Any ideas?

Hi, I started my Toyota Hiace van this morning and discovered the following problems: 1. Lots of engine noise like a loose fan belt. 2. Oil light went on immediately and stayed on. 3. I could not depress the brake pedal, it appeared to be locked. The only other point to mention is that I haven’t used the van for about two weeks, but the engine started straight away and the vehicle was running normally prior to these problems appearing. I’d be grateful for any advice. Any ideas please?

My Toyota Hiace once lost coolant and overheated. I replaced the head and put on a new head gasket. I checked the block and it was said to be okay. I removed the thermostat since my country is generally hot. The temperature gauge now operates at half mark and occasionally goes beyond whilst driving around town. I have cleaned the radiator, changed the water pump and radiator cap. What could the reason be for the gauge rising?

Hey Peter. My 2010 Hiace has the same thing. Think it’s to do with the central locking system, if I leave the van unlocked and walk way for a short time it locks itself. Hope this helps, cheers Dave Douglas from New Zealand

I have a 2004 Toyota Hiace Quantum 2 kd diesel. I parked it a few weeks ago and I could not start it the following morning. Now my mechanic has discovered that there is no power going to the injector nozzles, although the fuel is flowing from the nozzles it is not firing. What could the problem be? It is giving me code P0089 which has to do with the fuel pressure regulator. What has that got to do with the nozzles firing? (Quantum)

My Toyota Hiace 2kd engine (2005) does not brake properly. When you step on the brakes at times it loses the grip! The other day the inner brake pad on the passenger side dropped, forcing me to stop the van with the handbrake. I have replaced the pads but it`s still not good!. Since the incident the handbrake light is showing, even when the handbrake is removed and the vehicle is moving. How do I get the handbrake light off?

I have a 95 Toyota Hiace Van with 1RZ engine (carb). Recently my mechanic changed the exhaust valves. The engine starts perfectly when it is cold and I can drive the van. As soon as the engine temperature reaches normal (temp gauge needle in the middle) the engine loses it`s ability to move. My mechanic has changed the distributor, adjusted timing, changed spark plugs and wires (original Toyota) and still no difference. I need help asap please? Thanks in advance. (1rz)
