Re: 1987 Corolla FX 16

I ended up putting the outlet over the side of the car as I poured more distilled water in (with thermostat removed) and did that until it ran clear.

I figured I'll wait until spring and see how it looks, and if needed use something a bit more drastic than the normal $6 flush I did.

On that note we're thinking of calling her Coffee or Espresso or Beans or something because of this that came out after the first flush:

Re: HELP - Siblings Tercel busted transmission

PRetty sure you can use any FWD manual transmission from an 80 Tercel all the way up to 86 Tercel (and then 87/88 MT FWD wagons) I'm 99% sure the transmission from a 1st gen (80-82) is plug and play. Interestingly enough there's no 5 speeds but there's a few 4 speeds: gen 2 4 speeds: https://www.car...

Re: Estimated value?

Wow, if I didn't just find a FX16 plus if it wasn't a carb car I'd be all over it.

Eventually I'll make a proper thread for this but here's some teasers we dealt with on the cooling system: This is what came out when I drained the radiator the first time: rust water.jpg Took a hose through the radiator, block, heater core: hose through radiator.jpg round 2.jpg round 3.jpg round 4....

Happy 15th Birthday to the "current" Tercel4WD.com

As I was doing some back end work the other day I noticed something: t4wd 15th.png Near as I can tell this is when the forums were first updated with phpbb. There's earlier forum posts dating back to April 1st 2004, and references to a yahoo board before that which has been lost to time. For all int...

Re: 1987 Corolla FX 16

Ha, the wife does not like manual transmissions but it would make the whole thing easier for sure.

I went out and bought 10 feet of both sized vacuum hoses and am going to tackle that this week and just replace every vacuum line.

Re: New forum section feedback

Good plan! I haven't done it yet, but will soon.

Will probably make it a general "other cars" or something instead of "other toyotas"

Re: 1987 Corolla FX 16

was that an option on the nova labelled corolla. or something an owner created from a GTS twin cam? Never seen that before in the Nova trim. Yeah all the parts specific to the FX16 so far also listed a Nova in the same year range. So it would have been the Nova version of the FX16. Guess it was rar...

New forum section feedback

Hey Guys, now that I have a FX16 with a 4A-GE and knowing others have experience with the same engine, I figured I'd start up an "Other Toyotas" section to keep things from being lost in off topic.

How does this look?
