Re: 20v blown head gasket?

Can't say if you have a BHG or not... looks like smoke coming out ? But, you don't have a legitimate overflow tank/coolant reservoir/expansion tank or whatever you want to call it. So you top up your radiator when it is cold, go for a drive to get the engine up to temperature, and the coolant expan...

In fact I can still see the water. Here’s a video /// https://youtu.be/pOg4rYrPsNY /// the ...

Rear toe mishaps!

So today strangely noticed I have toe in on the left and toe out on the right almost like the diff is tilted horizontally. Can this be the 4 link? They’re stock bars so I don’t see why it would do this however it does have some homemade rubber bushings for the 4 link. Made out of tractor tires or so...

Re: My differential exploded...

No problem man, I get you. I have a bunch of cars friends from PR, it's pretty amazing what people do with just ingenuity and dedication!

Re: My differential exploded...

Why did your diff break like that in the first place? This is not a common occurrence.. They still sell third members, a new one just sold on Egay about 1 or 2 weeks ago. I think someone is still making them or they are NOS. I've seen them pop up every once in awhile. Cloudstrife, I live in the Dom...

Re: My differential exploded...

Upon further inspection it has a smaller pinion gear. My old one has 14 teeth and the new one has 12 teeth. Also the ring gear looks a bit beefier. I will post pics up tomorrow for comparison and maybe a Toyota guru can identify what 3rd member/axle I got from the junkyard. I will be cleaning my old...

Re: My differential exploded...

Thanks Dave, I managed to find this 1.8 Corolla one at the junk. Same 10 bolt pattern just that mine has one bolt hole that’s elongated and this one I found doesn’t. Otherwise looks exactly the same. That shouldn’t be a problem right? Just use a smaller bolt.

It’s drum brakes and I’m not sure if it’s stock or something. Someone told me something about Celica Supra diff. But it has drum brakes. Here are some pics for reference.

Re: idle hunting, 20v shenanigans

Okay guys I got a new afm and new tps just in case. My buddy had spares off his running engine. I put them on and it won’t idle it’ll start up then die after a second. If I disconnect the afm It idle perfect. I’m not sure what’s going on.

Re: idle hunting, 20v shenanigans

i started messing around with the afm wheel settings and i actually getting it to idle with the afm hooked up, since i have it disconnected now. i will mess around with it more when i get home. might be that someone fucked with the settings to compensate for something else.

Re: idle hunting, 20v shenanigans

OK SO, I disconnected the big hose from the iscv and the engine speeds up I plug the port on the throttle body where the hose goes and engine sputters and dies. This is normal operation correct? I’m getting a new maf tomorrow or the day after. I suspect that is my problem.

Little update. Today I took apart the itbs, I removed the vacuum bird nest underneath them and the Iscv as well. I cleaned up iscv but I noticed it was blocked off. Why would they do this?

Re: idle hunting, 20v shenanigans

This morning I was fiddling with tps and afm while I was warming up and if I disconnect the afm connector it idles better but it doesn’t accelerate for ****, with it connected it pulls good.

Re: Jumper cable mishap burrrnnnnn

Yes I have stock plenum and stock afm. I had set the tps as best I could with an identification card which is .30 as a feeler. Set it so as soon as I touch the throttle it reads infinite. The idle cycles high and low and sometimes it stays up high for a bit then starts the high low again. I sprayed ...

Re: Jumper cable mishap burrrnnnnn

Oh wait, it cranks, but it doesn't catch, right? So maybe EFI fuse?? You have spark, your starter is engaging, so you must not be getting fuel or air. Just for my interest..

Dude, don't just randomly try ****. You were on the right path when you were going down the line investigating spark. There is a measurement in the FSM. You should have one anyway. Coil/igniters are pricey, you want to make absolutely sure it's still good. That's very strange you are getting spark,...

Re: Jumper cable mishap burrrnnnnn

Copied this from somewhere else... First you need to test the coil. Test the primary side of the coil by taking the plug off the coil and checking the resistance between the two pins with your multimeter. You should get between 0.36 and 0.55 Ohms.To test the secondary side, take off the high tensio...
