  3. Mike has explained above but to use an analogy , when your house walls are being skimmed, you can use heaters for it to dry out faster (but its not recommended)[emoji6] and get it done quicker. It does come with a risk of potential cracks in future. Something similar. Better to be safe than sorry, really. Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk
  4. I think it's a standard procedure wherever the sealant is involved. Same goes for resealing the diff, overnight for drying. I *think* the idea is to leave it without oil too, presumably until it's fully cured there's potential for it to mix with the oil? Probably shouldn't happen but belt & braces for warranty purposes...

    @DKG if they have had the engine out for what ever reason it is worth contacting them. Also if you have any paper service history have a good look through that as I found some of the online stuff was not as detailed as the paper copies in the case of my car. I had a personal experience of an issued that Toyota GB helped me with after a bit of back and forth chat. Essentially mine went in for the valve recall and during this they found one of my camshafts was damaged due to oil starvation. After combing thought the service history for my car I found Toyota had the engine out a few years prior. Managed to pin the problem back to them blocking the camshaft oiler with sealant debries when they resealed the engine back then. Toyota then agreed to pay for most of the repair costs of my engine. and this was from work they had done >12 months prior and before I owned the car. Although the ball was admittedly in my court at this point as they had my car in for a free recall and then had my car in bits taking up their space demanding over 2k I didn't want to give them So certainly worth contacting the dealer and Toyota GB for discussion. Nice well worded and polite conversations via phone and email may get you a good result. Would be also good to know if wasn't related to a valve problem that would have been due a recall.
  6. I’ve done lots of sumps in the past and never waited for the sealant to dry. Its clamped down tight by the bolts and the engine heats up/dries out the sealant fast. Amber Performance actually did my cossie baffled sump while I wait and I drove it straight home the same day. No waiting overnight for stuff to dry. This is the first i’ve ever heard of this if im honest.
  7. Cheers Mark. I'll contact Beadles Medway then. Trying to arrange it so that the recall is carried out around the time I'm due for a service, but I'll be planning to come back to you in January for MOT/alignment anyway. Mind you, I tried arranging it like that last year and they never bothered to get back to me.
  8. This isn't true I am afraid , we use the Toyota recall springs if we are carrying out a rebuild
  9. Almost exactly a year since I had my first recall letter, another one arrived with me yesterday. I need to contact the dealer to arrange everything, but given that no one ever bothered getting back to me last time (despite three chasers), I'm guessing that things will be even slower given the pandemic situation. Is this true? If so I would be much happier taking my car to Abbey. Only lightly modified, and as per previous posts in this thread, Beadles Medway appear to have handled several recalls already, but I'm wary given the amount of failures experienced.

    If it wasn't a recall though and the previous owner has taken it in over a year ago to be repaired for whatever reason - do I have a leg to stand on ?

    At 2500 miles after the recall I'd be taking that straight to Toyota, they've very likely botched it.

    I've made an account and found the following which is worrying and doesn't state anymore after the 'removal of engine found' : The service book states Valve Springs for the 2019 part but what is that 2016 recall ?

    When was the recall done? As Gavin says , if it was less than a year ago then the dealer / Toyota is liable ans you must contact them first before taking to a private garage. Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    As I am sure you are aware don't try and start it again until the diagnosis is complete. If it has had the valve recall done there is a 12month warranty given on the work. I confirmed this with them when I had the recall done on mine in march. So you should get in touch with the dealer that carried out the work and go from there, Other people have had success with Toyota playing ball and covering the issue. I presume you have paperwork from the previous owner? If not create a my Toyota account. With the reg and VIN you can look up the full history of work with Toyota electronically. Might be worth going straight to Toyota if possible as they may be funny if someone else works on the car on the interim. Good luck

    Thanks for the reponses guys, So its 2013 and i bought it off a previous lady owner and she provided me paperwork of it having the recall. Has no modifications ( apart from me painting calipers red ! ) I checked the oil a few ago which was bang on correct level. The dipstick is completely normal but something is stopping it from inserting fully. This is the thread i found and the sound is pretty much identical : https://www.reddit.com/r/cars/comments/8mk638/toyota_86_engine_rattle_knocking_sound/ As i mentioned it's being picked up tomorrow as i dont want to run it at all incase it destroys internally even more. I'm gutted as this is the best car i've driven and just got rid of my BM 3 series which had had countless faults with but nothing ever this severe. Cheers

    Year of car? Did it have valve spring recall done recently or not done/ not needed? What did the dipstick show- normal oil level? Is the car modified/ tuned/ boosted? Dipstick tube issues are possible and a replacement is easy. I will be worried about engine, could be rods, could be bottom end, could be excessive RTV sealant but unless we get all the info in the post, not much we can point to.

    The dipstick tube has a twist in it, and the stick won't slide in in all orientations. It might be that simple. I hope your engine isn't in big trouble. Depending on the age of the car, you should check whether you're still under the five year warranty.

    What year is the car? Did you buy it privately or from a dealer?
