  1. Lol, so got my OBD2 £5 eBay connector thing so I could see how the coolant temp was behaving Coolant how up to 90 before game kick in.. normal? I'm so excited, I think I was over cautious of the engine literally getting so hot you could feel the heat when you step out the car. And ERM, The reason for the middle fans not working was because I had the directional setting set to clear the window. My girl moved it to point at your face after she asked "have you tried this" She's never gonna live this down [emoji28] On another note, 70 miles from £30 fuel.. is that normal? Also, 0 -60 in 13.5 seconds... Faaaaaking hell it's a tad slow. Very comfy tho Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  2. Temperature gauge goes halfway and no higher. I've left it running for a while, engine gets really hot, top hose gets hot, bottom stays cool I can't confirm on the thermostat, I took out the old one and replaced with the new one in the same orientation but it may have not been working before either The outer fans work but the middle ones do not.

  3. Drained the coolant from the radiator drain thing... Front of car was already up... refilled the coolant... Temp and power on full blast and NOTHING Top hose gets hot, bottom hose stays cold, no bubbles in the radiator fill cap Whats my options peopleeeeee 😢 I'm stuck... I've gone through all radiator threads and can't find a solution. Changed thermostat, waterpump, temperature switch sensor and radiator..... KMT In the wise words of Lucie from Love Island. "I just don't know what to do 😥". advice????
  4. Attempting to clear the block as the fans don't come on themselves Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  5. Running out of ideas and money lol Car reads half way on the temp sensor gauge inside the car, and still the fans don't make an appearance When ac is on they will... Hmmmm.. I'm lost at the moment Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  6. I haven't heard the bubbling for a while however fans still don't spin.. gonna change the rad.. What's the extra 2 hoses at the bottom? Did I buy the wrong part? Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  7. Hmmm, so it seems I ordered the incorrect part . I need a "temperature switch sensor" Any advice on what brand? Lexus want £108 for the tiny little thing autodoc have loads to pick from Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  8. Yep, fans came on! Temperature Sensor ordered from ECP.. I got an Intermotor over Haas, that was a good choice right? I'm excited to get this beast cruising, may look at rims soon.. maybe some XXR's?
  9. Everything back together. I wouldn't say it went flawlessly, I accidentally pulled out the tensioner pin before putting on the belt (F***ING D**KHEAD I KNOW lol please allow me) Finally got everything on though, seems alright, was a bit of white smoke when I first turned it on but I put that down to some oil I dripped when I was changing the oil/oil filter. Took it for a test drive, seems good, still get the gurgling, when I parked up, smoke from the front where you put in the coolant... I have done some research and it looks like it could be the sensor? Fans come on temporarily when I switch on the AC so I'm gonna short the wires that connect to the temperature sensor and pray that comes on. If it does, then off to ECP for a new one. they have bank holiday sale on at the moment... whoop whoop
  10. Lol will also let you know if I fail or not [emoji23] Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  11. Don't have money for a full service, but whilst it's apart for changing the cambelt, water pump and pulleys, very I may aswell do oil and filter right Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  12. Spoke to soon, left gone back down again but the right is good Water pump turned up tho, waiting for other bits Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  13. Funny enough, since getting it back from Kwik fit, hey haven't gone down.. which is good, only god knows what they have done to stop it from deflating all the time Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  14. Ladies and gentleman... My Lexus has now passed mot with no advisories. My self advisories are the gurgle, slow puncture both fronts, cambelt and other side caliper Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  15. Delivery..... Still sticking... Drove it from my house to my dad's drive so it's off the road as it has no MOT... Illegal I know but you gotta do what you gotta do New calliper ready to go on tho [emoji57] Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
