Quote from: "iPap"There is info from Toyota stating the date that the change happened was 21July 2005, when the piston and rings were changed. Production stopped in October 2005. This change was to reduce the rick of higherbol consumption. I have been given this info by two people with connections to Toyota.

The change occured from chassis number jtdfr320100074980 until the end of production, last car built being jtdfr320100076411.

Hope this helps!

Clubs reference section says differently,   l viewtopic.php?p=60046#p60046 l   seems a bit odd to change things for a couple of months production.

Hi,

Obviously definite pattern emerging , great but it would help if we had more members details.

Come on Guys/ Girls...this is in everyone's interest¬

I wrote a nice ingratiating  letter to Mr T's Customer Relations last week, no reply as yet.

Incidentally, where is the engine number on the block and can I view it in situ?

B

The engine number is on the end block just above where the gearbox meets it just below and around the corner from the exhaust manifold.

According to the service book - (Originally) Delivered Aug 2002 engine no 1ZZ10315**

Will have a look at the engine when it's light as it had a replacement short block fitted by Toyota in 2008 - Might have been a reconditioned block though I guess

Heard nothing further to my letter to Mr T.

 Ideally would have been more helpful to have more returns from members, do we have enough information to suggest as a crude rule of thumb
that engine numbers prior to IZZ12613++  are pre facelift or is this too simplistic?

Bear in mind the ideal  requirement is for an easy reference and the ability to purchase a secondhand engine with a WEE bit more confidence than previously!

To be fair, if nobody else replied, surely we're better versed now than prior to the exercise?

I'm quite happy with the results showing the engine numbers run in a sequence,which gives enough info to catch out some dubious traders so well worth doing.

Bingo,

Mr T Customer Services just sent me the production year, Vin details and engine numbers on spread sheet starts 2000 to 2006.  
I've only scanned it but can't see a separation on Pre/Post Facelift engine numbers so members will again have to take an educated guess from  when face lift starts.

Would mods confirm that they are happy with this being published, assuming no issues, would one of the whizz kids send me their addy and I will forward as an attachment as I haven't a clue about putting on the system.
