      Hey Mendel. The prius chat app for Android is not working for me today and I cannot find it in the Google play app store. Have you heard anything about this?

      Hi Mendel. Sorry, I didn't see an option for Private Message. I'm refurbishing a 2004 Gen 2 Prius. I'm in Vancouver and trying to find a reasonably priced 12V battery (on a very tight budget). You had mentioned something about Canadian Tire having a Motomaster that might work and you considered buying it. Did you ever get a new battery? Any recommendations? Thanks.

        Have not replaced yet, but still likely to go with CT option.

      Hi Mendel Leisk, Private message is not working for me. I saw your advice that toyota 1F7 Classic Silver Metallic is a match for the silver part of the alloys and Hubcaps. Do you know the paint code for the black part of the hubcaps?

        Like the song, black is black? Though there ARE colour-match blacks. I’ve picked up universal black touch up pens in past. One complication might be mat vs satin vs gloss though.

      This turns my prius into a generator for my house.

      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?

        2015 for sure. Revision happened some time through 2014, just from what I’ve “gleaned”.

      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.
