Granvia servicing.

Postby peterb110 » 04 May 2017, 07:15

Hi
Can anyone recommend a garage that is interested in and has the expertise and knowledge to carry out routine servicing and occasional repairs to my 2000 3.4 V6 Granvia?
Somewhere near post code CW8 / mid Cheshire.
Thanks
Peter

Hi Peter,

Any garage having experience with Toyota should be able to help you as your engine was available
with Land Cruiser officially distributed by Toyota dealers.
Any others aspects like exhaust, suspension are the same or similar to Toyota Hiace powervan.
Some bushes have different sizes, but that's all. Mainly the same design.

regards,
Stef
Grand Hiace V6 2001

Hi Stef

Thanks for that. I didn't know the 3.4 was used in the Land Cruiser in the UK market, very useful info!

Thanks Peter

I forgot to mention our gearbox was used in the Lexus GS in the UK market. Unfortunately either Land Cruiser 3.4 (I know only one LC 3.4 5vz-fe sold officially by Toyota main dealer) and Lexus GS were not very popular cars.
I found much easier to buy all parts which I needed to service my Grand Hiace, including sparks, sparks wiring, a gearbox filter, from online shops based in Germany what reduce the costs as well.
Last time I bought 20 liters of good quality Valvoline oil for the price of 7l the same oil here in UK including delivery from Germany.
For oil and air filters I go to Eurocarparts.
