Re: Rack and Pinion internal play?

I finally got around to adjusting the pinion gear in the rack today. I was only able to turn it by hand but I did almost one full rotation. The loud clunk is not noticeable anymore either. So, if you have that clunk and your rack isn't leaking any yet, I would highly suggest anyone with the problem ...

Blown power rack seals.

Is there a temp fix for this issue? Quite embarrassing leaving a ton of power steering fluid everywhere I drive. Stop leak was of no help. Thought of just removing the power steering pump belt thinking less fluid would leak out until I am able to buy a new rack. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Mysterious problem with cooling system

Is the temp gauge an interchangeable piece within the cluster? I've got a good one if it is.

Re: Fuel filter level?

If it's not fitting in, maybe the lobe on the cam is at the highest point? Maybe you can rotate the engine a bit and try sticking it back in there.

Re: Head liner sag is such a drag

I've tried using a few brands of spray adhesive a few times (including 3M, which is supposed to be the good stuff) on another Tercel's headliner that was sagging. It worked fine for 2 or 3 months and then it would always sag again. I ended up drilling small holes in the headliner board and pushing ...

Re: 1989 2wd Tercel muffler replacement problem

If it is off by a considerable amount, they normally sell adapter reducers, If that is the correct name, at auto part stores. Looks something like this.

Re: Is it worth $100

I wouldn't of thought twice or even asked the wife about it. Haha. If it is the starter solenoid that went out, I have an extra one you can have for free.

Re: Front wheel wobble on wagon

Crazy that it is the sway bar in your case. I have the same exact clunk. I replaced everything with new rubber components and it still hasn't fixed the problem for me. I took a pry bar to everything on sunday and could not replicate the noise. The only thing I've got is a blow out trans mount. Coul...

Re: '85 Tercel SR5, new member new owner

The same happened to a friends ford focus years ago. I can't quite remember the procedure followed, but I remember we had went to an autozone and they sell a repair kit for such instances. It's just a tool that retread the spark plug hole and I think it comes with an extra piece to twist back into t...
