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?

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 (9:41 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.

Ask for a interval wiper switch from an 01-07 Corolla.Or you coud ask for same from an ECHO. Note there are interval wipers and variable interval wipers. The whole thing is built in to the wiper switch. Three philips screws and the lower plastic housing aound the steeringcolumn comes off revealing the turn signal and wiper switches/arms. All built into one. The interval wiper switch/arm will plug right into where the non interval switch was. Plug and play! Also believe the switch from a Matrix will work.
Oh almost forgot. You want a wiper switch for a car without fog lights!

Yep, what kneisl1 said... HERE'S my old post from earlier in the year with pics (scroll down for pics).
I wanted variable spd intermittent wipers and the Echo came with just single-spd intermittent as an option. I have the Matrix switch on mine, and I'd wager that almost any Toyota wiper switch from those years will probably work. The extra knob for the rear window wiper doesn't effect anything.

Does anyone know where I can find a bra for my 2004 Canadian model Echo Hatchback? How about a bug deflector?
