What gearbox has it got? The 5-speed or the 6-speed? If it's a 5-speed then chances are that it'll share the same transmission and speed sensor as the 4A-GE Silvertop. There are two GT Apex Levins at Pick-A-Part in Mangere, Auckland. There's also one at Pick-A-Part Takanini, Auckland, but someone ripped the gearbox out the other day. Whereabouts in NZ are you from? And what model Toyota is it?Thanks! Im hoping it is the vehicle speed sensor lol. I only bought the car today lol got it real cheap though so i dont mind. If it is the speed sensor would you know where i can get one??
No problem :thumbsup:. Yeah I'd try the speed sensor first. Typically if these go bad then you'll lose about 500-700rpm from your rev range, meaning you'll redline earlier than you should. I was thinking about it last night, and although there are two GT Apex Levins with 4A-GE 20v engines at Pick-A-Part Mangere, only one of them in a 5-speed. The other is an auto. The 5-speed one is right down the back, to the very far right of the Toyota section. So if you walk in, head to the Toyota section, but go as far as you can to the end on the right (as if you were walking towards the road you went down to get into Pick-A-Part. It's maroon in colour and you can't miss it. It's been there for at least a month, so you might want to get down there this weekend as they tend to remove the car from the yard after a month of sitting there. Good luck!Im in Auckland, Te Atatu lol. its the 5 speed, ae111 levin. Oh nuts i was out by Mangere yesterday, picked up the levin in South Auckland. I might need to take a trip out there again.
Thanks for the pic made my job heaps easier.
My speedo 'seems' to be working fine but it could still be the speed sensor?
Haha, you're not being a nuisance . I'm not sure which grey plugs you're talking about as I don't have a 4A-GE yet unfortunately, but here's another pic that may help:Sory for being a nuisance lol. Will have another look. by chance could it be one of those big grey plugs that goes in to it? Like the plugs for the radiator fans
