04 envoy iddles up and down with the air conditioner on?
you might have a hole in your vacuume hose
Why would the temperature go up and down on a 1990 Toyota Tercel especially when stopped at red lights?
Your cooling system needs to be checked out. Your car is obviously overheating. If you leave it stopped at a light too long, chances are you will totally screw your engine. Could be a radiator, water pump, the coolant, or something more serious. Find a mechanic or a friend who knows his stuff.
Toyota Tercels do not have cabin air filters. Toyota did not put a cabin air filter in any Tercel sold in the US
on top of the engine under a large round cap placed on top of carbie.
It's inside the air cleaner housing.
first and foremost, DISCONNECT THE BATTERY!!! then , on the back of the steering wheel there should be screws (some are phillips, some are torx) remove those screws and the center of the steering wheel (horn pad) should come right out. PULL SLOWLY! the horn wire, and airbag power lead need to be disconnected from the steering wheel, then that is it. the whole assembly is the air bag. reverse steps to install. when you… Read More
How do you fix the tail lights remaining on after the car is shut down and the rear window brake light not working on a 1994 Toyota Tercel?
If it is the tail lights, it is the headlight switch. If it is the brake lights, it is probably the brake light switch. I really don't know how to replace the bulb in the 3rd light. change the brake light bulb first it may be shorted causeing the other problem
The air conditioning relay switch is located behind the passenger's kick panel, there you'll find the relay, a 10 amps fuse, and a 30 amps fuse.
I drive a 1990 Toyota Tercel and upon initial startup the oil pressure light goes on and off until the engine warms up. why?
Might want to think about trading up... LOL!!! Just messin with you. But might want to get you pressure gauge checked...
How do you line up the crank and dual cam gear marks for the timing belt on a 1995 Toyota Tercel 15?
First of all, bring your number one piston to top. Number one is the first one from the right (passenger side). There is a mark for this on the front of the belt cover. The timing mark on the crankshaft pulley should be aligned with 0. There will be two horizontal pit marks on one camshaft sprocket and one (a little bigger) on the other camshaft sprocket. These should fit together. Now the timing mark… Read More
I would suggest you try to find the manufacturer of your tachometer on the web and check out their support site and email them if needed for your particuliar vehicle. For instance below is a link to Autometer's Tech Tip web site however unless you own an Autometer Tach this may be useless to you. There are so many different ignition systems today that it would be difficult to explain each. So its best to… Read More
My 1995 Toyota Tercel starts fine and sometimes it makes a clicking noise like a bad battery but the battery is new and has been tested. When i press down on clutch hard it starts fine?
It might have a problem with the neutral safety switch, (it's what is switched on when you press the clutch) The switch is behind clutch pedal. It looks a lot like a brakelight switch. If it's bad, the part is about 40 or 50 dollars. Good Luck!!!
Can you give me some ideas why my 96 Toyota Tercel bogs down or hesitates on faster accelerations Thank you Steve?
check your plugs and wires
What would cause the fuel level alternator stop light and washer fluid warning lamps to come on and blink along with the buzzer on a 87 Mazda 323 SW but only below 2000 rpm and fine above 2000 RPM?
I found this on the web: http://www.mazdaforum.com/m_29848/tm.htm The problem may be the alternator or the regulator. Must I replace the entire alternator if the problem is the regulator? Most modern alternators have the regulator built in.
I'm not sure if this will help you or not, but it's worth a shot. In my 94 the check engine light came on. I knew the problem and fixed it but the light remained. After asking some people I disconnected the battery for a few seconds. Upon reconnecting it and starting the car, the light was off. The computer needed to reset itself, in diong so it runs it's own diagnostic to see if… Read More
The same thing happened to my 1995 Tercel. I guessed that it was the Alternator. To test if it was, I disconnected the battery while the car was on, and it instantly turned off, which confirms that indeed the alternator is dead. My mechanic also confirmed it. I bought a new one for $95, and once the mechanic changed it, the lights turned off. The same thing happened to my 1995 Tercel. I guessed that… Read More
How can you set the timing on a 1997 Toyota Tercel It won't start. It is getting fire but air is blowing out the intake. We have fuel. I think it jumped time and need to know what 2 do. Thanks?
If the timing belt has jumped you will need to replace it. A quick compression test will give you a good idea what's going on. Mark each spark plug wire so that you can get them back where they were. A piece of tape on clean wires or even a wire marker is a good idea. Next, pull all spark plugs and screw a compression gauge into one of the spark plug holes. Have an… Read More
If the check engine light was on on a 1996 Toyota Tercel and the problem was fixed what would be the problem?
Is this a trick question? My answer is "there is no problem". It Depends on the code that will detrmined what the problem was. or what ever you fix it with was the problem
Bad idea, replace both spark plugs and wires, using Toyota parts, will increase fuel milage and reliabilty..
Why won't a 1994 Toyota Tercel rear stop light turn off even though the car is turned off however when you pull up on the brake pedal the rear stop light goes off?
OK..I own a 95 Tercel and had that same problem. I found out that between the brake pedal is a piece of rubber that prevents the two metal parts from touching. If that rubber breaks or is missing then the brake lights remain on. I just used some crazy glue and glued a penny where the rubber was. That worked perfect. Now that's my one cent on that.
If two cars his head on and one is going 50 mph and the other is going 50 mph is the impact 100mph or 50 mph?
"100" The time it takes for the impact to occur is equal to that of a single car hitting a wall at 100mph (in other words the distance between the two objects decreases at the same rate), but if both cars have the same mass the energy dispersed is equal between both cars so the equation would be F=MV/2 F being the force of the crash, which is equal to the mass of the two… Read More
What is happening with a 1993 Toyota Tercel if the battery light goes on and the temperature goes to hot very quickly also the exhaust smells?
most likely the fuse relay is messed up or there is a problem internaly in the engine like to much oil or you might have a shot piston which means that basical you might need to rebuild it or just go out and get a new vechicle. If it's getting too hot ( temperature gauge goes near or into the red ) make sure you've got a radiator that's full ( CHECK IT WHEN IT'S… Read More
I work in the auto parts business and you need to take it to a mechanic so he can run a diagnostic check and tell you exactly what is making the light come on.
The OBD2, 16 pin connector almost under the dash on drivers side has been used on all makes and models since late 90's. On Board Diagnostics version #2 has the power to diagnose more aspects of your car than the previous version(OBD1). Soon there will be OBD3 that will pretty much diagnose eveything and the mechanic would have to just replace the part. These days things like vehicle top speed may have reached to how… Read More
Where are the timing marks on the camshaft timing belt gear on a 1991 Toyota tercel so the timing belt can be reinstalled correctly with engine at TDC?
getting the marks aligned correctly is important to insure the amount of power you will have.
Hello my friend. It most certainly is your Evaporator , its an A/C device located behind the glovebox altough most of the time complete dash removal is required ! It is located right next to your heater core , of course check all the line going to it before buying a new one ! Good luck.
Start with the trim around the radio and work your way down. Each piece overlaps the last one. There are screws on each side that may or may not have trim plugs over them. There are two screws holding the shifter knob on.
go to napa and buy a new 1 I think napa has the best reuilt starters.This is your best bet.
This is for a 1.5L engine: 1) Open the hood 2) Stand in front of the car 3) if you look straight down on the engine, from where your standing, it will be to your left, pointing toward the front of the car 4) get an oil filter wrench 5) unscrew the oil filter 6) prime the new oil filter by putting some oil on your finger and applying it to the bottom of the… Read More
No they are different
It is in the fuse box. Check all of the fuses with a test light.
may be security system - indicating that if radio removed from this vehicle, it will not work in another
How do you replace the oxygen sensor on a 1991 Toyota Tercel and is there a difference between an OE sensor and a universal sensor on this car thank you?
A universal sensor is one where you have to cut off the electrical connector from the old wire and solder it onto the new one. An OEM version comes with the correct connector so all you have to do is plug it in. To see how to remove the old one, click on this link http://free-auto-repair-advice.blogspot.com/search/label/O2%20sensor%20replacement
The coolant temperature sensor can be found on the front of the engine, near the thermostat. Remove the coolant temperature sensor retaining nut, to replace it.
You need a new fuse
Follow the lower radiator hose to the engine. Therm is in the housingI know the answer to this question could be confusing, so I'll elaborate. The housing is not exactly in line with the hose like on some vehicles. It's directly under the distributor.
The alternator is on the passenger side between the firewall and the motor.
The 1997 Tercel's alternator is located (if your looking from the front of the car) on the lower left side of the engine. It can be accessed from the underside of the car after removing the shield under the car.
yes, but not for long. The cylinder will get gas washed and score the cylinder walls as well as gas wash the rings. You will need an engine rebuild.
More than likely, the stop pad has fallen or broken off.
It may be a neat little thing called "vapor lock". This can be easily remedied by simply removing the gas cap and letting some air in. If this doesn't work take it to a mechanic.
I have a 2003 4 runner limited with about 70000 miles. When I push the AC button the AC comes on for a few seconds the cuts off and the light starts blinking. What is the cause of this?
most likely, the ac compressor is not functioning properly. when compressor's speed sensor is not the same with engine speed the ecu will shut off power to compressor. time for new compressor.

Get a shop manual from the parts store and it will show you what to set them at and give tips on how to replace it. GoodluckJoe
What happens when the battery is reversed and you run it like that a little bit Then the altanater goes out on you and none of the lights work except the charge light and the replaced headlights?
I'm thinking that anything that is polarity sensitive might have been damaged, including the engine control unit. The voltage regulator and alternator diodes may have been blown.
How do you change the clutch on an 1983 tercel and does anyone have a diagram of the manual transmission?
take it to the clutch guys 713-783-0006
Sounds like you are looking at the automatic transmission dipstick. These dipsticks will have 2 levels on them. If the engine/transmission is cold when you check, go by the cool indicator. If they are hot, go with hot. Your engine oil dipstick will have indicators likely labeled 'low' and 'full' Hope this helps.
Why would tail lights and dash lights not work on a 1991 Toyota Tercel when the fuse and wire connections are good?
The most common cause of taillights and â?? lights not working is a bad ground wire. The ground wire may be broken or the connection is corroded.
First hello ,1. Carefully remove the inner panel from your door, watch carefully for a pair of screws you have to take out. 2. Remove window handle ( if not power window ) it has a retaining ring which comes out using a thin and long screw driver. ( if power window carefull with the wires ). 3. With the window closed carefully locate the handle, carefully remove the what looks like a solid wire… Read More
I have a 1990 Tercel and the fuel filter is on the driver's side in the breather / air filter area. I found it best to have the new filter handy. Simply disconnect the old one with screw driver and pliers. Some gas may come out of the line, if the new filter is handy you shouldn't lose much by putting the new one on quickly. Tighten and you are ready to go. Bill
Your Toyota Tercel a 1992 model the backup light and tail lights just came on and will not go out when i turn the car off help?
Not sure as to why the back up light is stuck on. Usually that turns off with the key.. But, the brake lights is due to a little adjuster falling off on the brake pedal. Happened to me in 2 cars. If you follow the brake pedal up into the dash, you will see a little button that basically goes through a hole near the top of the pedal.. Like a push button switch. Well… Read More
