They were all RHD and sold as Corolla GT Coupes (based on the JDM Levin). The barn red one has a sma...

Re: Engine stall. Cuts off. Vacuum switch. Help please

... my engine cuts off because one of the wire to this vacuum switch... ripped off. If your engine cuts out because that valve is not working, your idle speed must be a bit lower than stock (850-900 rpm). As said, try raising the idle speed by turning the screw down the tube on the side of the thro...

Threashold braking does as well and in most instances stops faster than ABS. Yes... in theory. When you are just braking hard into a corner, or scrubbing off speed in less than panic mode, threshold braking or cadence braking will do the job. But when you find yourself on the wrong side of the road...

Drive gear inside the gearbox is made of steel, so it will chew up the nylon driven gear if they are not meshing properly.

AFAIK the 4AC fuel pump is a low pressure mechanical pump mounted on the rear of the head and driven off the single camshaft. There is zero chance of mounting it on a 4AGE. The 4AGE fuel pump is a high pressure electric pump mounted in the fuel tank. I really think you should not post after you have...

Injectors are probably batch fired, or at best they will be fired in pairs. So you only need to test #1 and #3. They are fired by the ECU pulling the injectors to ground. Therefore you will have 12V on the injectors dropping to a value near zero on the ECU side when the ECU grounds the injector. A c...

The COR is essentially the fuel pump relay. In standard configuration it is energised when the engine is cranking, or when the flap in the AFM is open. If you have bypassed the COR it should not affect anything else. With the ignition ON you should have 12V at the coil and igniter, 12V at the ECU, a...
