Re: Headlight always on, charging issues tercel 86

Yes, let's hope that you will find a source for that. Do you have an original car manual? That explains which fuses you need for headlights. It sounds like a wiring error. Please tell if you lack manual. I can scan some fuse information to you on Euro Tercels if needed.

Re: Dies after high speed and/or prolonged run time.

I have an idea. Could you make a fuel tank from soda bottle and see if it runs flawlessly? You just take an empty Pepsi/Coke bottle, fill it with petrol and put both fuel lines from fuel pump to bottle and see how motor runs. If it runs now flawlessly, your fuel lines + fuel tank need further inspec...

1984 brochures are interesting for sure! Especially the ski package stickers are great if someone wants to add them into Tercel.

Re: FOUND my Favorite Tercel SR5 - Update on stolen vehicle

I am glad to hear that. Immobiliser is a good idea. And how about removable steering wheel?

Here is what one needs to do if you have an old car in the street:

It definitely makes your car harder to steal.

Re: Turbo 4age tercel

You are really updating this engine technically if you are doing coil on plug ignition instead of distributor and doing full proper engine wiring harness. And yes, it makes sense to do winter drivers first. My Tercels are similarly used during summertime so no need to get them running for wintertime...

Re: 2022 Michigan Meet & Greet video

I can believe that this meeting acts as annual “kick-in-the-pants” for sure. And I admit that group pressure is a great way to set goals for yourself. That is why I post also here the proceeding and a goal for each project. Then I can compare afterwards how my projects proceed compared to my origina...

Re: Another Movie Sighting...

Great way to look for movie Tercel 4wds is to see ones at IMCDB with search criteria AL25: https://www.imcdb.org/vehicles.php?make=Toyota&model=AL25&page=1 There are at least 5 pages of movie AL25:s. Keep your eyes open for interesting Tercel 4wd's. This one is especially interesting for me ...

Re: Turbo 4age tercel

Yes, good job! It seems that you need still distributor and water lines to radiator and then you might be already really close to start that engine for the first time.

Re: 2022 Michigan Meet & Greet video

It is great that so many Tercel 4wd did gather for a meeting. I have never seen before that many Tercel 4wds in one place. Let's hope that your next year meeting will be also a success.

Seems that you had a lot of fun there.

Hi InSaneTercel87, I am the another active Finnish member. I can give you tips for parts if you need some advice. Lets hope that you will get your car going well and fixed.

Re: 1987 Tercel 4wd project

The answer is that a lot of detail checking is involved in vehicle inspection. The Finnish vehicle inspection is different depending on age, emission class, fuel type etc. Basic rule is: the older car, the easier inspection. For example, after 2002 built cars can't have OBD faults and emission teste...
