Hi Gents,

I came across this brilliant site today while pulling my hair out over a diesel Toyota Estima problem,I am 57yrs young ;)and I live in Dumfriesshire and work as an electronics Engineer, I also restore a few vintage cars and look after a few wedding cars mainly RR and Daimler etc, on the odd occasion I get asked to look at jobs other mechanics either wont do or shy away from :Smiley,I was servicing a 1994 Bentley Turbo R for a guy today and stuck it on the back of my truck ( 28yr old Cargo) and took it back to the chap, on arriving at his house he asked me to drive it round the back and into a courtyard which I did, he then said are you going back to your workshop with an empty truck because I have a challenge for you Huh?., he then pointed to the Toyota that was sitting at the end of the yard, he told me it had been standing there since last winter, he said one morning he started it up when the temp was -17 degrees, he said he had travelled about 1/4 ml and it started knocking Shocked, he called the AA who diagnosed oil pump failure and the knocking was the big end bearings Cry. he had it towed back to his house then 1 month later he asked another mechanic for his opinion, he said he also thought it was a big end bearing and the engine was knacker ed and even though the car only had 12,000mls on it he said it should be scrapped Shocked, it had lain there ever since, I like a challenge NOT ha ha, but though ooh well I am doing nowt this afternoon and put it on the truck and brought it to my workshop, to cut a very long story short, and after reading the excellent posts on here about teabag filters and vacuum pumps and Harmonic crankshaft balancers and also the auxiliary drive shaft doughnut's all causing this fault I feel far more confident I will crack it, the daft thing is that all these so called mechanics that diagnosed a big end bearing knew that this noise sometimes went quiet especially if you are brave enough to rev it up and the let the revs drop down to tickover the noise would disappear for a while then slowly come back, also there are no oil lights showing Wink.

Welcome beardy nice too see another member north of the land. Hopefully it will turn out to be one of the easier fixes for you. There are some members here braking estimas so you could look to them for parts ebay seem to have a flowing amount of spares to be had. surprisingly enough Toyota can still supply parts too. Keep us up dated with your progress any problems you cant find the answer too just ask. more likely someone has covered it.
