I removed the shift selector cover to renew the oil seals. I noted prior to removing that the vertical lever (top lever) pointed toward the bottom lever. When I re-installed the assembly, it now appears that the top lever is pointing away from the bottom one? Looking into the box there are three horizontal "rails", each having a slot to accommodate the shift lever selector arm. The top two rails line up two slots, whereby the bottom rail is offset to the right. Should the top lever be engaged into the offset slot on assembly? (by depressing same on assembly), this would then position the top lever to where I thought it should be? It all married up on first attempt, however on testing the column shift it appeared jammed?

Ed Tolkien, Devon

Toyota Hiace

The door for my fuel cap won't clip in to place and stay shut. I bought it as it is so I'm not sure how the mechanism is supposed to work, It looks like the metal clip is supposed to hook behind the nut which is on the right hand wall of the fuel cap cavity. At the moment the clip is just bouncing back off the nut so the door swings open. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to fix it? Thanks, Ed.

My vehicle engine over heats when at a speed of 90km/h and above. Always water levels are low. Radiator cup is ok,radiator fine,gasket fine.c-head ok,fan ok, and water pump fine. what could be the problem?

Answers

the booster and brake master are ok. You should bleed your brakes using the nipples on your front wheel. kalipi laibu from Zimbabwe

it can be also cause by the weak furn. most of the furns are ran by a thick liquid in the furn. Once that liquid is very weak it will not blow out the heat and cool the radiator. You need to lock the furn so that the furn run the same speed as the engine Ble from Zimbabwe

Hi we have a hiace custom campervan 1996 and the leisure battery is not charging at all when we drive. The stereo, which should work from both the engine battery and the leisure battery is flicking on and off, as is the 12v socket in the van. We have checked the connections to the leisure battery and those coming from the engine battery, and they do not appear loose or earthed against anything. We didn't think it could be a fuse because the stereo is coming on and off, and thought if it was a fuse it wouldn't work at all? Any advice gratefully received Thanks

Hi My Hi-ace is leaking radiator fluid on the passenger side. A lot of fluid comes out once I stop somewhere. If I fill the coolant tank up it will last me about 2 days not even driving very far. It seems to come from a smaller radiator. I can't quite get in there to check any pipes. Any tips on what to do would be much appreciated.
