Re: AE86 issues please help!

Front end accident... slide into a curb with the brakes locked up? If you cant adjust the tie rods enough to get the alignment straight, something is bent. Probably something along the lines of a bent tension rod or partially crushed mount. Easiest way to check is get the car up on safe jackstands ...

Re: AE86 Blue Top issues.

I've had the first issue before. Believe it's just a fuse in the driver's side kick panel fusebox. The third one sounds like a misfire once you're at the tail pipe. Could be as simple as a spark plug gap too far out of spec or a stuck injector. You can disconnect the plug wires one by one and see i...

Re: AE86 Temperature / Gas / Oil Gauge not working

Temp & Oil are just one wire signals. Temp comes from the upper waterneck single terminal sensor. Oil comes from the the oil sender by the exhaust manifold. Those two wires go through the main big black connector that sits on the top the firewall near the chassis identification stamp and vin pl...

Re: AE86 Rough Start up

This is a tricky one :? And because the problem only exists for a second or so when starting, not easy to diagnose. I'm leaning towards a fuel supply problem but it could also be an electrical supply problem. It's almost as if the car first starts on two cylinders and then all four kick in and away...

Re: AE86 Rough Start up

With the diagnostic port shorted you should get a steady flashing of the engine management light (EML) on the dashboard, it should not be on solid. Jondee will chime in I'm sure but l think this could be a TPS problem where the idle switch is not engaged in the TPS, effectively the ecu looks at the...

OK... we need to figure a way to get the fuel pump to run for a couple of seconds before you try and start the engine. If shorting the FP test plug didn't work ( and it should have) there is another way. You need to take the airfilter off your AFM (Air Flow Meter) and while the key is ON, push the ...

Re: AE86 Rough Start up

It sounds like it is over fuelling but I'm not sure that there is an error code for that when the engine is first started as the O2 sensor is not reporting. Have you checked for stored error codes? Maybe try disconnecting the cold start injector to see if there is a difference? I can check if there...

Cranking speed sounds about normal to me. If you were to turn the engine off straight after it started to run clean and smooth, and then start it again, would it still struggle and shake, or would it start up like normal ?

Re: AE86 Rough Start up

Cold start injector does not affect how fast the engine cranks. But if it is not working it will affect how long the engine has to crank at normal speed before it catches. If you have a timing light you could check the ignition timing while the engine is warmed up and idling. You should have around...

Re: 20V Black top Fuel Injectors question

Might be cheaper to buy some of these and you will get the o-rings with the injectors. You will need to save the nose insulators from your existing injectors (rubber rings) that seal the tip of the injector to the inlet manifold. Refurbished items from China but don't let that put you off, they wil...

Re: 20V Black top Fuel Injectors question

Might be worth checking if there is a business near you that can clean and flow test your injectors. Injectors don't usually crap out all at once, but they can get clogged up with dirt or old fuel if they have sat for a while. And if you are running a stock blacktop with a factory ECU, you don't wa...
