Re: poltergeists in my car, HALP!

The fuel injectors were clogged. I cleaned them, and it fired right up.

poltergeists in my car, HALP!

Okay, I blew my head gasket and after replacing it I could not get the car to run very well. I went buy the factory repair manual and set the timing to 10 degrees while in diagnostic mode and when i pulled the jumper it went to 17-18. now that was out of the way I tried a spare ignitor and checked t...

Re: Rough edges around combustion chambers

There are pics of the head gasket and the tool I used to clean the edge of the combustion Chambers. http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y207/mazdaxxman/Mobile%20Uploads/received_3315911175256643_zps9qpjfi8q.jpeg These picks are all so amazing when you are disassembling a dashboard. http://i6.photobucke...

Re: Rough edges around combustion chambers

I used an o-ring pick to run around the edge, it did not have a sharp edge but it knocked off the burrs. Thank you everyone for the advice.

Rough edges around combustion chambers

I have noticed that the edges around the combustion Chambers are rough. my question is, are there any advantages to smoothing out the rough spots. I believe I heard it one point that rough edges like that can create hot spots within the chamber. I have the head off due to a blown head gasket. I have...

Re: Dirty dirty curse words. Water pump, and tvis woes.

I pulled the vacuum hose and tested the vsv valve. It wasn't holding pressure at all and I hooked the diaphragm directly to a vacuum source and it worked properly. I also tested the vsv plug for power and made sure it was getting voltage at the proper times.

Dirty dirty curse words. Water pump, and tvis woes.

Yesterday I installed a new timing belt and water pump. When I put it back together the pulley was hitting the timing belt cover, I guess the company sent me the wrong pump (shorter nose). Resting at the bottom of the timing belt cover was a bolt and that perfectly explains why only one edge of the ...

Tvis cleaning/function

I have a stock 1985 Corolla gt-s and below 4500 rpm the engine is not reving like it used to before being in storage. I know the tvis opens the butterflies @ 4200 +/-.
The link for tvis in faq isn't working, so does any one have any advice on cleaning, repair, and testing?

Re: 1985 gt-s poor acceleration

I went and checked the belt, and there was too much deflection. When the symptoms started I was just below red line, so it very likely jumped timing. One question, what are the sensors on the front left of the block? Mine is gunked up so bad I just spotted them. Other than the water pump and tension...

Re: 1985 gt-s poor acceleration

AFAIK both those sensors have carbon ribbon potentiometers with a copper or brass wiper. They probably got a bit of moisture inside from sitting outside so long. I never tried this, but if you can open them up a spray with Electroclean (contact cleaner) might help. EDIT : Just pulled a TPS apart an...

The cap and rotor are new. I took the tps apart and there was a good amount of debris on the ribbon. The spring wasn't working well either. The same thing happened with the maf when I took it apart.

Also the Maf tested @ 200 ohm closed, 600 open. The specs call for 20-3000 ohm. My only question is why was this thing running at all?

So, I parked my car for the winter in 2009, in the spring it seemed to be running fine. I was having a spirited drive in May of the next year and it was running fine and all of a sudden it was bogging down from idle to around 4500rpm. I parked the car and kind of forgot about it for the 8 years. I d...

Re: 1985 GT-S Resurrected from the dead

The starter solenoid on the AE86 gets 12V directly from the keyswitch. The wiring diagram for the 1985 does not show a clutch switch, but if you see one under the dash there should also be a "starter relay" somewhere. This relay only allows 12V from the keyswitch to reach the starter sole...
