Re: 1983 SR5 Wagon - $2500 Montana

yes, it should bolt up and work. but the shift lever may be in a different place on the floor (if I recall it is slightly further forward about an inch or two). it might still work with the current hole in the trans tunnel, but you may have to clearance it. Many of the internal parts of the FWD tran...

Re: looking for a T4wd manual transmission in Canmore, Alberta, Canada

that usually means the main shaft bearings are sloppy and allows enough play in the main shaft that it pops out of gear. sometimes the shift detent is gummed up and not functioning, so if you do an AFT flush it could improve it: to flush, put in 50/50 mix of ATF and gear oil in the trans; drive it s...

Re: 1983 tercel wagon sr5 for sale in Beaumont, CA - needs clutch

Nice looking Tercel4wd. how many miles is on the car? how much do you want for it?

can the car be driven at all, or is the clutch so far gone it will not move at all and need a tow?

Re: My baby

Re: Water pump bypass leaking

when you get your replacements, I would advise putting some non-hardening gasket sealer on the o-rings before you install the by-pass tube. I have had the new o-rings get torn when I installed them, putting the sealer on it lubricates and protects the o-rings as you slide them into the fittings.

Re: charging a deep cycle trailer battery off the towing vehicle?

We has several small travel trailers that had deep cycle batteries. They are usually slow to charge, but fully charged it should be showing 13.2 volts. either it was never fully charged, or has some minor internal breakdown that will not allow it to charge all the way. it will show less voltage than...

Re: 2003 accent, no crank & weird electrical stuff

check your main ground from the battery, and also the condition of connection where the battery cable meets the clamp. also check the main power cable meets the starter for corrsion (you may have to remove it to clean it), and also check both ends of the ground strap from the engine to the frame. so...

Re: Possessed cooling fan

Never heard of that before, on the Tercel the fan should be off when the ignition is off. Possible corrosion in the relay box or fuse panel, it might cause an unreliable contact that allows it run. also, check you do not have damage to the wire bundle or wire insulation, grounding of the wire might ...

Re: 87? t4 in victoria, bc - $2500

looks decent in the pics. sometimes when minor collision causes need for new front end parts you can only find earlier versions of the front end clip. if it is not all rust, that is a decent price around here.

Re: For Sale: "The Burrito" 1986 SR5 4wd Manual White Rascal $2200 o.b.o.

sounds like a great price, really clean car. those issues you say it needs are not pressing, really they are routine normal maintenace and worth doing on any car you get used anyway. if the time belt fails it will not harm this engine (unlike most modern engines), but best not to push your luck. not...
