Re: 1981 Tercel Part Desperately Needed

Kamren- Don't know if the kit will fit your car- website SAYS it'll fit '79-'88 non-Japan Tercels. Is oil actually getting INSIDE your distributor? Nice looking car BTW- I had an '82 4 door I bought with a blown engine some 30 plus years ago. Rebuilt a junkyard engine, installed it, and re-sold the ...

Re: 1981 Tercel Part Desperately Needed

I think the OP's problem is he's getting oil INSIDE the dizzy. If so, my brother had the same problem with his '96 Camry. He got a repair kit from KBOX engineering, and I installed it. Problem solved. KBOX lists a kit for '79-'82 Tercels for $35.

Hope this helps.

Re: Scrapping '88 SR5

Grey tweed door panels went into my '87T4 (sex change) car. I do still have the brown door panels that came out- sorry. As for the radio surround, the only black one I've got has been slightly modded to fit the A/M sony radio the PO installed (upper radio opening is approx. 1/8" wider than stock.) I...

Scrapping '88 SR5

Well people- it's happening again- time to send my totaled "88 SR5 down the road. Car was the "meat" in an automotive sandwich (hit hard enough to buckle the roof- so all the stuff in the front (headlights, etc.) is toast.) I'll be keeping some of the mechanical bits (tranny, etc.) as I currently ha...

Re: Parked for Months, Now Can't Find 5th/Reverse

Just remove the plug and then try to shift the gears. If you can get 5th/reverse then you know something is stuck inside the plug. prob some sort of spring-loaded ball. Free it up and you should be good to go. Good Luck!

Re: Parked for Months, Now Can't Find 5th/Reverse

Sounds like a stuck reverse restrict pin. Easily accessible from underneath the car on the left side of the tranny extension housing just forward of the rear driveshaft. Just un-screw it and free it up. You don't have to worry about loosing tranny fluid, it screws into a "well" behind where the gear...

Re: help, please! issues with my new (to me) FWD ‘88 EZ

Well put Jarf- I like to tell customers that come into our shop "do you take your own eggs to a restaurant and ask them to cook 'em for you? And then bitch about it if they don't taste good?" Like you said, don't buy your own parts unless you're gonna install then (unless of course the shop can't ge...

Re: Situation...steering link ball joint stuck

Don't smack on the nut (or tie rod end) hit the steering knuckle. You'll probably have to hit it pretty hard to shock it loose. Good Luck!
