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...

Congrats to the missus- not many would put up with that. Are valve springs supporting the table top?

Re: 4a head swap

Is the spring-loaded pivot for the arm free? I've had a bunch of 'em rust up and become stiff over the years. Sprayed some PB Blaster on the pivot, worked it back and forth by hand 'till it freed up, and all's well. As for the 4a head, I think the combustion chamber volume might be a little greater ...

Re: Inquiry from the blue: "Want to sell your Tercel?"

Never followed anybody home- none of my "driveway finds" had valid tags when I spotted them.

Re: Inquiry from the blue: "Want to sell your Tercel?"

Knocking on doors (or leaving notes on windshields) is exactly how I managed to buy 4 of my current 5 Tercels. I call 'em driveway finds.
