Re: Larry's tercel gets a 20v Black Top

those look like 15" miata wheels. should be very nice when you get them mounted. i have similar wheels (except dull rather than shiny) on my ae95 with 195/60r15 on them and i really like them.

Re: slightly high/low idle once warm

i forgot to mention that i have a similar thread going over at the ae95 forum. one of the guys there is a pro mechanic who has access to the TIS (toyota information system) which is basically an online version of the FSMs. he said that my FP results are in line with what is in the TIS, and mentioned...

Re: Tercel 4WD vs Civic 4WD :: A side view comparison.

bryan, is your civic wagon 2 or 4wd? i think they're neat but the one 80's civic i worked on had a weird carb/FI hybrid fuel delivery system that i thought was a weird "halfway to FI but not quite there" innovation. i can't remember what it was called, single port injection or something like that. d...

Re: Front end noise when stopping or starting to go forward

Re: slightly high/low idle once warm

i tested something today to rule out vacuum leaks. i let the engine warm up and start to idle high and then inserted a wire between the terminals used to check engine codes, set timing, set idle, etc. when i did that, it idled normally. i could step on the throttle and the revs would come back down ...

Re: 1983 Toyota Tercel SR5 (Eugene)

with the exception of the white crap on the rear passenger side, the exterior looks great. the interior isn't very good but it's better than what i'd expect for that price.

Re: slightly high/low idle once warm

Does it have OBD1? If it does, and if OBD1 has engine data, you can check O2 sensor fuel trims to inspect for a leak. it is obd1 but i don't know what you mean about engine data or checking o2 sensor fuel trims. what are those things and how do you check them? although i should say i've been very t...

Re: Starting Issues Getting Worse...And Charcoal Canister Removal Questions!!

This may be a stupid question, but in terms of removing the charcoal canister, did you go from above or from underneath? I'm trying to figure out the best way to get it out because it seems too big to go either way. Also, does anyone have any experience with replacing the charcoal canister rather t...

the vw westfalia we bought years ago had a rusty gas tank. it had been sitting in the forest near the ocean for a few years though.
