Re: 4AGE automatic

Yeah, six gears would be too many for me. It's more about being able to buy the bits needed for the conversion and having the gear lever sit in the stock location. I would be happy with four gears, and I have a T-40 and a 3.9 CW&P sitting in the garage. When the T-50 dies I am going to fit those...

Re: 4AGE automatic

That's the one. Trans is used behind the 4AC but will bolt up to a 4AGE as they are
both A-Series engines. You just need to figure out the flexplate by looking at the cars
mentioned above.

Morris Minor !!! Wouldn't have thought there would be many of those in the States :)

Re: 4AGE automatic

A42DL as found in the SR5/AE85 with the 4AC engine. This will bolt right up to the 4AGE and the only problem you will have is locating a suitable 8-bolt flexplate. The 4AC has a 6-bolt crank and the 4AGE has an 8-bolt, but I am lead to believe that the flexplate from some of the FWD 4AGE Corollas wi...

Hmmm... it seems that your AAV is operating much as expected except for the idle dropping to 500rpm sometimes. As totta crolla points out, when you add electrical load a small solenoid valve should open to allow extra air into the manifold via one of the small spigots on top of the throttlebody. Thi...

What you describe are classic symptoms of how an engine behaves if the AAV (ISCV by another name) is not working.

The remaining question is, was it oil volume? Or oil pressure? (Inside the puck) Optical sensors can be affected by anything that obstructs light getting from the emitter to the receiver. So dust, condensed moisture, carbon, insects or oil getting in the wrong place will eventually cause a problem....

Just googled to see what was inside that "puck" and it uses optical sensors.
So if you have oil getting flung around inside you probably have your answer.

If you slowly increase the engine rpm, say in 3rd gear on a level road, can you reach high rpm with little or no misfiring ? That is, does engine load affect the onset of misfiring ? If it does, it would be worth trying a set of plugs one heat range colder. A cheap set of basic NGK's would be fine.....
