#85 of 117 Installing an Secret Weapon -R Intake in my 2001 Toyota Echo
May 15, 2008 (11:53 am)
I just purchase Secert Weapon-R air intake for my 2001 Toyota Echo. Before I did that I notice that the stock air filter box(the top part) has the MAF sensors & this lilttle rubber tube on the side as well.(little above the MAF sensor plug). I already installed the air intake on my car but that rubber tube I was talking about I have no idea where it should be plug at? It's not sucking air do doing anyting. The intake works great & my check engine light didn't go off what so ever. Just wanted to know if that rubber tube on my stock plays a role? I just cap the tube off with a zip-tie. Anyone who installed an air intake in a Toyota Echo before can y'all help me out with this problem. Thanks. (on the stock filter bx the MAF sensors & that rubber tube is connected on top of the air filter box)

Have the same car and the weapon-R , those hoses are part of the evaporative subsystem,had a hard time with them,cause they lighted up my engine check light when I installed them to the intake,I have being shooting emails to the manufacturer for better instructions,they don`t have them,on of the guys ask me to send a pic of the install to tell me if it was correct,I`m planning to do it this coming weekend,if I get any answer from them I`ll post it here.

Installing things like this is an excellent way to cause all kinds of problems with your ECHO. Both now and in the future.

Care to elaborate?

Installing an oiled element air filter like the K&N will lead to your mass airsensor being plugged up with oily junk causing the engine drivability issues. You already know the trouble you caused with your air pipe.

Tell you what,I inspected the mass sensor and it is as clean as a whistle,I will install the thing again after I get the hose routing right,and will post the results

How long has it been downstream of the K&N?
#92 of 117 Cruise

I installed a Rostra cruise on my '01 Echo, I love it, I also bought a used clock on ebay, plugged it right in, velcroed it into the small box, there still is enough room for a box of smokes next to it.
I need to put a power hook up for my Garmin, I was thinking maybe a small plug on the side of the instrument cover. I make my own cabin filters from filters at work. Does anyone have thoughts on better brake shoes for the rear?

The Rostra cruise on my '02 has me rethinking my whole mistrust of the aftermarket industry! It has served me faithfully for a number of years, and is very similar in operation to Toyota's own factory cruise system.
Oh, and rear brake shoes? I am at 110K and my car has never needed replacement shoes, sorry.
#94 of 117 Intermittant wipers
Dec 27, 2008 (8:41 am)
This has most likely been brought up before- but I am new to this forum... Is there any way to get int. wipers for the ECHO? I can't stand a long trip of having to constantly hitting the wipers. Man, if I had that... I'd have my cruise, clock, gps, wipers... a remote start would be nice up here in the north, but with a manual tranny, it seems too expensive.
