Re: Introduction

Thanks for the reply, it has gotten into the red once after climbing my paved driveway which is very steep and about 1/4 mile long. So I have done a pressure test of the system and done the diagnostics for checking the gasket besides visually inspecting it. Since it had gotten that hot, it made me t...

Re: Introduction

So I am scratching my head, long story short I replaced the t-stat with a duralast gold, Replaced the water pump, added a dual core radiator from my spare, swapped out temp sending units and did a vinegar flush through the system. When it’s hot the surface temp of the engine reads 200-210 between cy...

Re: Introduction

I have a thermostat(Murray-Israeli made) and have not replaced it yet. I was planning on doing that tomorrow afternoon when i get home. I have no reason to believe the head gasket has been compromised since the oil looks good and i dont recall seeing any steam coming from the exhaust. Also, the heat...

Re: '88 Tercel automatic won't start....not even a click

Took apart some of my spare starters and found two contacts that appeared new, swapped them into a motor with good teeth and cleaned everything up, it has started about 10 times in a row, I think that solved the issue. Thanks for the knowledge.

Re: '88 Tercel automatic won't start....not even a click

I should have edited the above post instead of make this new one, but it is a click from the starter which I assume is the solenoid...and it’s an 85 4wd 6speed if it makes any difference

Re: '88 Tercel automatic won't start....not even a click

Petros sorry for the confusion but I am not the original poster...I figured my question was relevant to this topic so I chimed in hoping for answers. I have a loud pronounced click as if the starter is engaging then grounding out or something. I jumped it, still have the same click as before when I ...

Re: '88 Tercel automatic won't start....not even a click

I think you are right Petros, if I wiggle the key cylinder around it will connect as I turn it. I will get some free time this Friday to take the plastic off inside to diagnose and hopefully repair. I will repost with the update.

Re: '88 Tercel automatic won't start....not even a click

Hey guys, i have a similar problem with my starter, it gives a click and no rotation of the engine. I thought it was the teeth on the flywheel or starter initially so i removed and inspected the teeth, there is noticeable wear but everything seemed to be fine, so i tried 2 other starters that i had ...

Hey guys, I am new to the forum. I just bought an 85 4wheel drive tercel that has an 84 transmission in it. From my research on this site, most of us are familiar with the gearing differences so currently My wagon is only operable with front wheel drive. I have taken the drive shaft out to save myse...
