Hi everyone, just joined here (already had help on the tech forum though!)

My name is Paul and I am an alcoholic - sorry wrong forum!

I have just bought a 1994 Toyota Estima Enema "G" Spec 4x4 2.2TD Automatic - there is a mouthful!

Didn't pay much for her and starting to find a few issues already - such as the overheating, oil leak from the non-existant sump gasket  and the awful fuel economy!

But I will persevere and get her sorted. She is a 7 seater with gorgeous beige velour upholstery, full climate control and the Joyful Canopy roof. Not sure what other options it has above standard apart from a weird air filter/ioniser between the front seats!

Looking to give it a full service and fit remote locking first, then on the lookout for some cheap alloy wheels (what fit?) and either curtains or heavy tint the windows so I can go camping again!!!

Cheers all, Paul  Smiley
