Re: Hybrid Fielders and Axio specific

One has to be very careful as to using devices that would take large amounts of current from the LV battery. The reason is that sensitive electronics monitor battery voltage, current going in and out and resistance and in some instances, temperature of the LV Battery. The DC to DC Converter supplies...

The second radiator, the smaller, is below. It has smaller hoses. The Inverter coolant pump (see photo) is in front, under the Inverter. It pulls coolant from the bottom of the reservoir, sends it to the right side of the radiator. Coming out from the left side, the coolant goes into the Inverter on...

Re: Hybrid Fielders and Axio specific

SO YOUR HYBRID HAS TWO RADIATORS ! Yes folks. 2 separate crossflow radiators in one frame. The upper, which is the larger radiator with larger hoses cools the engine. If you follow the radiator hose on the right side of the car, you will see it goes to the electric Aisin water pump. The photo shows ...

Hello all SAGABOYS who lower cars. Please note that the Toyota Hybrid cars are not your cup of tea. They are poor candidates for Low Riders. If you want to cut out 2 coils of spring, put on 20" rims and series 5 tyres, then your High Voltage cable will not survive all the semantics you perform ...

Re: Can a gearbox get flood water if water didn't reach air filter?

What kamikaze says have some weight. Usually a gearbox will have a vent. From cold, when the gearbox heats up with use, the air inside will expand. If there is no vent, then the internal pressure will cause it to leak .....somewhere. Possibly through a seal etc. When a pressure cooker is removed fro...

Re: Hybrid Fielders and Axio specific

Unlike cars powered only by an ICE, the hybrids cannot rely on a brake booster to amplify the force of your leg pressing the brake pedal. The vacuum from the ICE inlet manifold operates on the diaphragm of the booster, which pushes the piston of the master cylinder to give tremendous hydraulic press...

Re: Toyota Aqua / Prius question

A quick idea of gas consumption.
Friend of mine had a 1500cc Tiida which his wife drove from Iere Village in Princes Town to Rio Claro every day.
......You know the horrible terrain and traffic.
The gas cost per week was TT$100.
She has an Aqua now.
The gas cost is now TT$40.
End of story.
