      Got my PlugOut Power Inverter kit.
      This turns my prius into a generator for my house.

      Check out PlugOutPower.com
      They have a discount going on right now that saves you $200

      Hi!2017 Prius I do have a coolant leak,dealer says is from my Exhaust Heat Recirculation System.The problem is that part is quite expensive and if I do it I just want to be sure is from there. How can I test it? I was thinking to bypass the exhaust gas heat exchanger linking those 2 water hoses with a metal pipe . I want to try this only to see if I still have the leak. What do you think about this idea?

        Maybe post a question, get a concensus. Electro.... is one member who REALLY knows his stuff, flag him and Chapman and so on. It’s got the CAT right? Around $3K.

      I hope you/family are well. I appreciate the information you provided last time I posted. I have 2010 Prius, Base 2 with 25,800 miles. It's 10 years old and need service advice: Brake fluid exchange, Coolant exchange inverter, Coolant exchange engine, Trans axle fluid exchange, HV fan cleaning. Thanks.

        Toyota USA recommends 15 yrs or 150k miles for inverter coolant. That said, 10 yrs or 100k is Toyo Canada recommendation.

        Most likely going to do brake fluid exchange, engine coolant exchange, and trans axle fluid exchange at end of month along with my oil change. Spoke with Toyota USA and said definitely sooner the better for all of them. Always appreciate the help.

      Hi Mendel - got the Noco Gen1 Mini, but the dang thing comes with eyelets. My ground bolt is nicely rusted on and the front jump point isn't budging. Alligator clips would've been ideal here. Any ideas?

      Do you recall the guy with his Prius (PIP)? He modded it to tow a small travel trailer. I searched but could not find him.

      Hi Mendel would you be able to share the wiring diagram for the Intelligent Park assist ECU for a 2011 Prius? I'm trying to get the back up camera on mine to work with my aftermarket ECU

      Hey mendel, I have a wheel question.
      I am interested in buying a wheel that is 15x6j 38offset. Would this work on the 3rd gen prius which are 15x6.5j 45 offset.

        I don't know that much about tire geometry, maybe post a question, in accessories and mod's forum?

      Can you use your Google-fu powers to see if the part numbers match up with the problem cars from the lawsuit in this thread:
      https://www.classaction.com/toyota-oil-consumption-defect/lawsuit/
      It would be from any of the following models/years:
      2007-2009 Toyota Camry
      2007-2011 Toyota Camry Hybrid
      2007-2008 Toyota Solara
      2009 Toyota Corolla
      2009 Toyota Matrix
      2006-2008 Toyota RAV4
      2007-2008 Scion Tc

      Hi Mendel.
      I'm reaching out to you re: the oil consumption thread in which I posted yesterday. In past threads, you've provided links that show the old and new part numbers for the rings and pistons in the Gen-3 Prius -- indicating that there was a change to correct the problem at some point (2015?).

      Mendel, I need your opinion on braking system.
      On my Prius V 2012 rear guiding pins are seized in caliper bracket. Is it better to remove the bracket and replace the pins only or just replaced the pins and bracket as a unit?
      I can not seem to move/rotate the pin, even with a hammer.
