  1. Cranks but doesn't Start (No codes)

    Yaris/Scion iA, Vitz and Echo Forum
    Update - I am finally up and running. Changed out the pump and at first it didn't work - which was obviously discouraging. I ended up putting some starting fluid in the throttle body and cranking it w/ my foot all the way on the gas for a few seconds. Then I tried normal starting it. Then back...
  2. Cranks but doesn't Start (No codes)

    Yaris/Scion iA, Vitz and Echo Forum
    I was able to get my neighbour to come lend a hand - the electrical set up was done correctly, I just needed someone to crank the engine. Once the engine was being cranked - power was getting to the fuel pump. I also tested a few plugs for spark (#1 & #3 | starting from the passenger side moving...
  3. Cranks but doesn't Start (No codes)

    Yaris/Scion iA, Vitz and Echo Forum
    I was able to rent a fuel pressure gauge and put that on the valve not to far from the fire wall - it returned 0 psi pressure. This leads me to believe that the problem is fuel related. I am now trying to test to see if the pump is getting power. I checked all the fuses and none are broken. I...
  4. Cranks but doesn't Start (No codes)

    Yaris/Scion iA, Vitz and Echo Forum
    I am not getting any codes. I haven’t touched any of the sensors. I have never changed them since I have owned it. I did do an oil change and I did change the power steering fluid last weekend. Plan on getting a fuel pressure test kit and see what that says.
  5. Cranks but doesn't Start (No codes)

    Yaris/Scion iA, Vitz and Echo Forum
    I got some starter fluid and putting it into the throttle body - then tried to start. No dice! This leads me to believe that it is spark/compression related. I took out the plugs and none were gummed up but they did all smell like fuel - but given that I haven't driven it at all I would...

  7. Cranks but doesn't Start (No codes)

    Yaris/Scion iA, Vitz and Echo Forum
    Thanks for the ideas. My check engine light is on only when I put it into the 'on' position. (i.e normal behaviour) I will check the plugs - but I did those maybe 3 yrs ago and given how little I drive - I doubt that they are fouled. I also had my friend try to start it as I touched the...
  8. Cranks but doesn't Start (No codes)

    Yaris/Scion iA, Vitz and Echo Forum
    Morning everyone - I am having quite the month with the car. Right now I am struggling trying to diagnose this problem. Basically the car cranks but doesn't start. This leads me to believe that it is not the starter or the starter relay. I have checked the battery and we are good there. I have...
  9. Fuel Door Release Pin Stuck

    Yaris/Scion iA, Vitz and Echo Forum
    Here is an update for this thread - I was able to get my hands on a heat gun. I pulled the release into the car and used the heat gun on it. This moved the pin out enough for me to grab it with a pair of pliers and pull it out the rest of the way. So I am officially back to square one - being...
  10. Questions - Looking to buy Yaris

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toyota_Yaris If my memory servers me correctly it should be listed on the firewall or the sticker on the inside of the hood.
  11. Questions - Looking to buy Yaris

    Yaris/Scion iA, Vitz and Echo Forum
    I know that at one point Toyota started using a Mazda engine in the Yaris. If your plan is to keep the car for a long time - I would double check to see who manufacturers the engine and transmission. I know that the Mazada engine is decent but it isn't as good as the Toyota engine.
  12. Fuel Door Release Pin Stuck

    Yaris/Scion iA, Vitz and Echo Forum
    I don’t know if bending will work because of how little the pin is exposed. I will try to figure out how to upload a video to help
  13. Fuel Door Release Pin Stuck

    Yaris/Scion iA, Vitz and Echo Forum
    Do you get your car sprayed for rust? I would try to check the lever first - unscrew it from the floor board and oil it up. The cable runs through the inside of the car and is covered - so I doubt it would be the cable. Are you driving a sedan or hatch? Is it an Echo or Yaris? My 04 hatch...
  14. Fuel Door Release Pin Stuck

    Yaris/Scion iA, Vitz and Echo Forum
    Morning everyone - recently my fuel door release pin (on my 04 RS Hatch) is getting stuck in the 'open' position. Basically, after I open the fuel door from the inside of the car, the pin becomes retracts towards the rear bumper and the fuel door releases without any trouble. The problem is when...
  15. 04 Echo Power Steering Flush

    Yaris/Scion iA, Vitz and Echo Forum
    Thanks for the help. Please excuse my ignorance - I have never done this before. The steering rack sits on top of that front cross member that allows you to jack the car up correct? How do I distinguish between the return and line and and the pressure tube? When I look underneath it seems...
  16. 04 Echo Power Steering Flush

    Yaris/Scion iA, Vitz and Echo Forum
    I know that this sounds like a silly question but how did you catch the old fluid? I assume you drained it from the return line at the reservoir correct?
  17. Starting trouble

    Yaris/Scion iA, Vitz and Echo Forum
    I solved this one sometime ago - it was the fuel relay that needed replacing.
  18. 04 Echo Power Steering Flush

    Yaris/Scion iA, Vitz and Echo Forum
    Morning everyone - I have an 04 Echo that I bought with roughly 171,000 KMs on it. Nine years of ownership later I have roughly 235,000 KMs on it and I have yet to flush the power steering. I have done the research on how to do a system flush. My problem is that I can't trace the input and...
  19. Starting trouble

    Yaris/Scion iA, Vitz and Echo Forum
    Thanks for the idea - will give it a shot. Would need to double check my file for how old the battery is. But when I do try to crank it - I get the same pitch and speed as normal. Was planning on putting in some fuel injector cleaner and am researching how to replace the fuel filter. The latter...
  20. Starting trouble

    Yaris/Scion iA, Vitz and Echo Forum
    Evening everyone - hoping someone can lend a hand. Basically, my car is having trouble starting. It cranks (has compression), it has gas and air and it isn't the battery b/c I hear the starter working. I thought it was the plugs so I bought some new ones and swapped them out. Same problem...
