HiAce blowing smoke

Answered by CarsGuide 4 Sep 2015

Normally, I would be thinking it’s the turbo, but the fact the performance hasn’t been affected would suggest it’s not. Check the injectors, it could be that they’re worn and in need of replacement.

Hiace intermittent problems

Answered by CarsGuide 1 Mar 2013

It's most likely to be an engine sensor, or a wiring connection associated with one, that's the problem. Unfortunately, intermittent problems are hard to detect, because they rarely occur when the mechanic is there to witness it.

Toyota Hiace gearbox bearing

Answered by CarsGuide 27 Oct 2011

If it's got a bearing problem in the gearbox then you should assume it will get worse and eventually fail. If it is a bearing and the bearing disintegrates while you're driving it do some major damage and could end up costing you more. You probably should do it as soon as you can.

The best course of action is to fit a new clutch. It might not have had a new clutch fitted in its life so far and if so it's probably on its way out and will need replacing soon anyway.

Caddy stacks up

Answered by CarsGuide 18 Jan 2008

IT DEPENDS on the size of van you need to accommodate your ``things''. If you can get away with a small van, go for a VW Caddy, which is based on the Golf and drives like one. You can buy the Caddy with a diesel engine, which will cut your running bills, and you will find it a most comfortable van to travel in. If the Caddy is too small for your needs go for a larger European van, such as a VW Transporter, Mercedes-Benz Vito or Renault Traffic. All are good to drive, comfortable and, with diesel engines, economical to run.
