Sounds like a great plan, good lck Andy
Well back from the Toyota dealer and this is the conclusion:-
It seems that +/- 3 is the limit of acceptability and according to the service manager it doesn't want touching, so it won't be.
He said they still get a good few in for work done and mine's a decent one, which is nice to know.
I'll have to have a ride in another one to compare so for now its ok.
Hope this helps anyone watching.
Good news that you dont need to replace anything.
So the conclusion is, from cold they rattle a bit until warm lol
Pretty much I'd say Joe, however for £48 its worth the Toyo test just to know where the injectors are at healthwise.
Or buy Techstream and a cable from ebay for £20 and test whenever you want to.
The Merc ones are tested in near enough the exact same way, anything more that +- 10 and they need changing
What is it that goes "out of spec" with injectors which necessitates them being changed?
Yeah i have it sitting here, i just need time to have a play with it.
I have a spare set of injectors for the 1KZT-E motor, I must get them checked out properly one day .
I must find time to finish the body panel welding on the '95', its looking rather sorry for itself at the moment, though the motor and transmission are fine (I've got the RAV-4 back in the garage again, this time for a "Dashboard out" job ).
They get dirty and clog up leaving you with a bad spray pattern poor atomization and a weakened bang , simply put your running on 3.5 cylinders instead of 4 assuming only 1 injector is effected , that's how i look at it anyway .
Spot on Shayne, mine was doing exactly that until it got sorted. Scoffed the fuel too!!
