Yeah I think it might be just a coincidence, so I think I might need a new starter as well because it too about 15 tries before it would start to turn over.

I'll get Toyota to do a leak down and pressure test tomorrow.

So I take it we're back to thinking its the rings are the problem?

If the turbo has been ruled out, and the amount of oil we are talking, then yes, I think it is the rings.

Well the turbo creates boost how well its working remains to be seen, is there any guides on how to get at that intercooler so I can see if there is any oil in it? Its pretty far down there and it looks like I'd have to take off the front fascia to get a good look at it.

The intercooler is going to be so mucked up on the inside that you're going to have to clean the hell out of it and put it back together and drive it a bit before you can tell.

If every time you throttle it hard you get white smoke. That's a good indicator that it could be the rings. But it's also not exact as it could be a few things.

I've got no problem with cleaning it, if anything I'd welcome it because I'm getting shit mileage right now and anything that helps is worth it.

Just tell me how to get at the thing

Ihatehacks

He wrote up a thread a long time ago about the entire process.

I'm an n/a. So I can't just go out and have a look see. But if you can track down the thread. He explains it quite well.

He said it was a huge mess and not real easy to do. Cleaning it should help you alot.

Aside from that you should use your tsrm. If you don't have one let me know and I'll send you a link.

You mean this thing? Does it show how to get at the intercooler or how to clean it?

I tried searching his name and nothing about the intercooler came up, and I tried searching intercooler but there are hundreds of threads. What should I search for to find it?

Jeez it was so long ago.

I'll look and see if i can remember which 1 it is.

The tsrm should show you what you need to know.
