  1. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    Hello everyone , I bought my first Toyota MR2 (ZZW30) a couple of days ago ,so far no issues but I've checked the oil and it's very low under the mid point on the stick , I contacted the previous owner about the issue and he replied that he never filled the oil all the way up to avoid oil...
  2. Performance Modifications
    Hey everyone. I want to install both an oil cooler and an oil pressure gauge on my ZZW30, but I'm not sure if I want to stack sandwich plates (which seems to be an easy but sketchy solution). This is my first car and I'm still cutting my teeth so I don't want to do anything too involved that...
  3. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    gPan3 Even before my original high mileage (+150K) died from pre-cat failure, I had read so many SC posts attributing low, no, and/or oil starvation issues --- as well as pre-cat failure --- as killing 1ZZ engines; making sure this never happened to me became a very high priority. SC posts...
  4. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    I have a problem in my 2ZZ. A few weeks ago, I ran on track day. I was very careful with the downshift (for avoid over-revs). After a slightly smooth curve, and when accelerating (6,000rpm approx), the oil pressure light on my dashboard turns on. Thanks to that I was looking at the RPM's, I...
  5. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    Hi Everyone. Question. I have a 2005 Mr2 that I bought last year with 120k miles on it. I only drove about 800 miles on it this year and was wondering it I should do a oil change before putting it in storage. I bought the MR2 from a member on this site (Bruce) so had some history but...
  6. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    I have a 2ZZ on my MR2 Spyder. In normal use, the oil temperature stays at about 87°c - 98°c, but on roads and drag races goes up to 115 - 120°c. What are the maximum tolerable values? I plan to participate soon in a track day and I need to know if I will need an oil cooler or not. Oil...
  7. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    *UPDATE* 158300 km (3000km) AND I blasted up and down a twisty mountain road yesterday.... OIL IS STILL FULL. I wanted to report on the progress of Operation #FreeTheRings because there may be something interesting to say. Basically I *may* have a breakthough. TL/DR: I haven't burned any...
  8. Performance Modifications
    Hey guys. Just bought a 2002 MK3 and it uses extreme much oil. I was hoping to drive a year before changing to 2zz. But i guess i will have to do it now. I cannot pass the smog test to get the car registrated in Denmark. I bought the car in Germany. It used 4 liters of oil on the way home from...
  9. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    Hey all, So need your opinion on the best course of action here. I've had my '00 Spyder for about a year now, it has 52k miles on it and is generally in really good shape. HOWEVER as I'm sure I don't even need to write, it is an oil-thirsty little bugger (probably a couple quarts every 1000...
  10. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    There is lots of good info on here about what brands / types of fluids to use or not to use, but it is spread out over numerous threads. Having it in one spot would be nice. Be sure to include any conditions like for street/autox, dry climate, etc. or pros/cons too. engine oil manual...
