Re: Where does the TVSV valve located in Toyota Tercel 1987 4WD 1452CC

I see you have a RHD car- master cyl in the pic kinda threw me for awhile. Anyway, TVSV has NO electrical connections- just 5 vacuum ports (at least our US spec cars do.) As Petros said, it's mounted in the housing bolted to the cly head that the upper radiator hose connects to. Pretty sure what you...

Re: Where does the TVSV valve located in Toyota Tercel 1987 4WD 1452CC

Toyota pn is 90925-02076- they're on the I-net for $120- $140. A few years back, I came up with an alternative- a "hand choke" if you will. I'd post the link, but can't- too stupid. Just do a search on "gc switch" and it'll come up.

Good Luck, and welcome aboard!

Re: Stock height with 14" rims

I'm running 195/70's on 14" Miata daisys on my '87 FWD. Slight inner fenderwell tire rub when pulling into driveway with steering at full lock. I'm with you- I hate those puny 13" wheels!

Re: Ignition problem

Had similar symptoms years ago with my '83 SR5- turned out to be the ignition coil (inside the distributor.) Replaced it with a known good one, and it's been fine ever since. Good Luck!

Re: 2001 Camry 5SFE random overheating

Had a similar problem with my brother's '96 Camry a while back- car wouldn't suck the coolant back out of the overflow tank when the engine cooled. Tried pressure- testing the cooling system, replaced radiator cap- no change. Was ready to pull the head when he realized he never had the problem 'till...

Re: Wondering about different axle ratios on Tercels

I've had numerous T-4's with both final drive ratios- far as I'm concerned, the 3.73 is by far the best setup. Car's not going to be a dragster with either ratio, and I prefer the taller gears due to the lower RPM's @ highway speeds. Only had one A/T 4WD and the thing SCREAMED on the highway. I conv...

Re: Want To Buy: Vacuum Switchs

They def. are different (at least on the Fed emissions- I see you have the Calif. emissions.) One has a green electrical plug, the other a black one. Which do you need? I've got 'em both.

Re: Camry all-trac

Back when those cars were new, I was doing Dealer Exchanges for a local Toyota dealer. Got to drive an AllTrack Camry wagon with a 4cyl manual transmission- REAL nice car. Think it had a sticker price of $13k and change. Also drove a Camry 4S with a v/6 and manual trans. Talk about a sleeper- that t...
