Re: Oil Options?

something I do that you may want to try: my current trans has almost 400k miles on it, syncros are worn and tired, and make it difficult to shift on really cold winter mornings, but work okay after the gear oil warms up after some driving. there is sludge and metal partials that can build up on the ...

Re: Fails emissions test - CO too high

reset your spark timing to 5 deg BTDC, and than retest. I think that should do it. afterwards make sure to set it back to 10 deg, or you risk damaging the exhaust valves. you might also replace your spark plugs if they have not already been replaced recently. put the correct heat range in per the FS...

Re: HELP! Weird Front End Noise

sounds like you got a worn cv axle. they behave that way when they have any play, the larger the angle on it, the worst it gets. lifting it usually make the angle worse, and the clunking worse. do this test if you can: turn to the right and accelerate hard, and than tot he left, and accelerate. if t...

Re: My lovely Toyota Tercel with spare engines and a 83 spare tranny also.

what do you think it needs to make it into a good daily driver? can it be driven on the hwy now? to bring it up to Seattle? if not, what does it need?

I really want the engine, I need one for my daily driver while I rebuild the 4ac I have in it now.

Re: 4WD fuel pickup line?

the FWD model the tank is under the rear seat, completely different shaped tank. the pickup from many totoytas should fit, they are all very similar. I wonder if the same year carberated corolla fuel pick up will fit, the tank is very similar in location and size and shape as the tercel4wd. I have o...

Re: brakes

the vacuum is bleeding off when it is not supposed to be. I do not know why it would do that. holds vac, than will not hold vac.

funky check valve. partly torn diaphame that acts like a flapper valve, held close it works, gets displaced it will not make a seal?

Re: brakes

the brakes are fairly wimpy as it is, without the power assist, it will not be easy to stop safely. the behavior you describe is not exactly clear, when you have power boost, and when you don't. is the car running, not? at idle, on the road, what? an intermittant power brakes, on and off, will not b...

Re: brakes

sounds like the vac check valve is sticky. I have had that before, especially noticeable when it is cold, first few stops are like no power booster, after it warms up it starts to work again. I was going to just replace the valve, but I was having trouble getting it out, so I sprayed carb cleaner do...

Re: euro tercel parts for sale on ebay

it would cost some $700 to get it to the USA. Not really worth it. It appears to have a lot of "road rash" and other damage. funny, when I went to Greece for 24 days, we drove all over the Peloponnese area of Greece, and a number of islands, I did not see one Tercel4wd. lots of other unusual cars, o...
