Toyota Estima Owners Club
I have been hearing an intermittent high pitched rattle under the bonnet for a while now, when it's there is's getting worse or more persistent, I thought at first it might be an alternator issue perhaps, as the rattling seems to get worse when switching something power demanding. It speeds up with engine revs too. It sounds too metallic to be a fan belt, it isn't squealing or squeaking but rattling like a loose metallic thing? It is getting louder and people turn their heads when I drive by, even more than they did before with my bus which isn't what you'd call a quiet motor
I have a K reg 2.2 diesel turbo. 4wd drive Estima. Auto.
I found a few diesel spots on the drive.
I checked the engine oil and found a small pool of diesel on the top of the engine...probibly not enough to change the fuel economy, but it's dripping on the drive. I expect Mr. MOT man might not like the diesel leak either.

After a good chuckle about me not using the handbrake and getting into a bad habit, I thought to solve the...
Hi - I just thought I would share my experiences one year on. I've had my bus (1997 4WD CXR20G) for 9 years now and the front suspension was definitely getting worse, lumbering a bit on corners and knocking on speed bumps. Particularly bad in Cornwall on bumpy minor roads with fluttering sensation after hitting one of the many potholes. Yet it had kept passing the MOT (one year I had to wash the trace of oil off one yet it passed).
When I asked my usual garage for new ones, they were very wary of anything except top price ones from Toyota dealer. I had fitted Kayaba gas-a-just to the...
