MR-2 Specialist

MR2s are very close to our hearts at Drift Limits Performance, having carried over our staff from ‘Pacific Works’ who have been the South East’s leading specialist for over 10 years. If we can’t fix it no-one can!

If you are looking for a reliable specialist to service and maintain your Toyota MR2 then look no further. We are happy to work on all versions from the early Mk1’s through to the most current.

Upon your first visit at Drift Limits Performance, we always recommend a health check of your vehicle before any works are carried out. This will be a visual check, no tools involved bar our diagnostic test. With this we can give you an accurate list of any issues with your vehicle, this way we can help you prioritise cost vs urgency, ensuring your money is spent in the right places. This would usually cost £60 but we offer this at half price for MR2 owners.

Mk1 Common Faults

The MK1 MR2 is actually one of the more reliable generations of the three. We recommend you check for the following faults

Distributor O-ring + Timing – £72
Over time it is common for the Distributor O-ring to fail causing a leak. Once replaced the timing will need to be set. It is possible for the second oil seal within the distributor to fail, if so it will need to be dissembled, replaced and reassembled which will increase the price. Please get in touch for a quote.

Rocker Cover Gasket – £110
As like the Distributor O-ring the rubber rocker cover gasket can deteriorate and break down over time producing prominent oil leaks around the head of the engine.

Mk2 Common Faults

“Pipes from hell” – £250
This is an issue found through Rev1 to Rev4 where two copper coolant pipes that are hard mounted to the chassis above the fuel tank. Over time vibrations and stress/flex can cause the pipes to crack. This can be  identified by air in the coolant system, low coolant, puddles under your car and a running or bubbling sound around the stereo area. Toyota revised this on the revision 5 but only on one side.

Distributor O-ring + Timing – £72
Over time it is common for the Distributor O-ring to fail causing a leak. Once replaced the timing will need to be set. It is possible for the second oil seal within the distributor to fail, if so it will need to be dissembled, replaced and reassembled which will increase the price. Please get in touch for a quote.

Rocker Cover Gasket – See below
As like the Distributor O-ring the rubber rocker cover gasket can deteriorate and break down over time producing prominent oil leaks around the head of the engine. Pricing varies depending on year and specification:

Turbo – Rev 1 & 2 – £140
Turbo – Rev 3, 4 & 5 – £145
N/A – Rev 1 & 2 – £200

This can cause multiple issues such as windows not going up and down, a grinding noise, the windows falling into the door (in extreme cases).
