Re: rear tire skipping under hard braking

So last night I jacked up the front of my car and turned the front wheels by hand and one side had noticeable drag and this was caused by the brake piston not returning correctly. The OP might want to try the same test before doing all the other stuff stated above ! will do, thank you. CloudStrife ...

Re: rear tire skipping under hard braking

When you say right hand side, are you referring to the passenger side?

I am currently running the factory brake proportion valve. Is there one that bolts in nicely?

Re: rear tire skipping under hard braking

If you suspect a side to side brake imbalance always check the non-working side, the side that it veers away from. Just to make sure I got this correct in my head. If i car turns to the left under braking, then I need to check the passenger side? Yes, I can lock the brakes in straight line hard bra...

Re: rear tire skipping under hard braking

Straight line braking only causes the steering wheel to turn to the left slightly. No wheels lock under braking in a straight line. Front wheels are at -3.5 camber and rear is around 0. I will try messing with rear strut settings. If I remember correctly, they were set to pretty stiff already but no...

rear tire skipping under hard braking

Hey Guys, I am having a problem with my AE86 GTS at the track when I do some very hard braking. The inside rear wheel will skip across the pavement when I start braking before a turn. I have also noticed that when I brake in general (even during cruising) that my steering wheel slightly turns to the...

Re: Ignition timing problem

Try not to get focused on the direction. Your not going to hurt anything if it doesnt run. Just turn it until it runs. You can use your ear to determine where the engine wants to be. Dont rely on the dimple under the oil cap. You need to take the cam cover off and verify the marks on the cam gears a...

Re: I think I broke my AE86

If the car is not overheating, compression test is good, and it is still smoking. Then there is something else wrong. It could be many things (worn out piston rings, old valve seals, etc). I can speculate all day about it but I would perform a compression test first before moving further. If it look...

Re: I think I broke my AE86

First do a compression test to verify that it is the head gasket before you start taking things apart... For a bad head gasket you will see the PSI on the cylinders be something like the following Cy1: 170psi Cy2: 140psi Cy3: 80psi Cy4: 140psi On a good head gasket it would look like this: Cy1: 170p...

If you are "sure" that the inner tie rod pivots for LH/RH are equal distance, [not clamped in AW-11 factory location] then you will have to adjust the elevation at each pivot point to get ends of the tie rods traveling thru the same arc. Can you elaborate on this? I am confused on "p...

The plugs could be fowled out. My friend had a 20v that would not start with correct timing. I took out the plugs and wire brushed them down. Then the motor started. In general, if the distributor is clocked almost completely to one side in order to get the engine to run. Then you are off a tooth. I...

Re: Bump steer after aw11 manual rack conversion

When shopping for a AE86 manual rack online, what information should you provide? Didnt manual racks sometimes come on 87 GTS/SR5 Models and thats it? When I use that info on RockAuto, I see FX16 FWD racks that are manual.. Does anyone know if those are compatable?

Keep following Jondee's recommendations. Only thing I have to add is the following: 1. Make sure your red/black vacuum switching valves are not reversed. Might be possible since you took things apart. 2. If the ecu does not throw a code when you unplug the ISCV, then you could potentially run with n...

Re: Car won’t idle

Does the engine have an Air flow meter? Verify that it is grounded. I believe it has a square brown connector by the exhaust manifold/under the brake booster. If that is not plugged in, your car will start up but then die.

On the rod there is a stop that controls the opening of the itbs throttle valves. That is what I adjusted for the idle.
