I just bought a 1996 tercel and the check engine light came on and stayed on. My friend is studying to be an ASE mechanic and he hooked his Solus Pro, which is a sophisticated car computer, and he came up with the same code, O2 sensor. After running a complete test he reset the codes to 0. I haven't had the check engine light come on since. My friend said that if it does come on again we will run a deeper scan and a road test. It has been two weeks so far.
the last time i checked it was what connected the pistons together and made it run
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.
The 1993 Toyota coolant temperature sensor can be found on the front of the engine. The coolant temperature sensor will be a few inches above the thermostat housing.
It is located on the engine block on the opposite side of the exhaust manifold to the right of the starter unit.
did you replaced spark plug also distributor cap and rotor???
For the 1993 Toyota Tercel, the O2 sensor has three different wire colors. These colors are: black, blue, and white.

The timing setting for a 1988 Toyota Tercel is the "3E" hole lines at the top. This setting is for a Tercel EZ 1500 engine.
in the engine
The last year the awsome Toyota Tercel was in production was 1999......(sad face) It was replaced by the ugly Echo....blech!!
That involves removing the axles the tranny. I just replaced the clutch and tranny on my 95 tercel and it's not fun.
Get it used from a junk yard, or any other Toyota engine with an identical 8th digit in VIN.
Go have Your Fuel Pump REPLACED
The starter on a 1991 Toyota Tercel is located in the front of the engine. It will be located on the left side.
its on the downpipe its 2 nuts you have to unscrew
there is no dipstick! it is a sealed unit and has to be put on a lift to have it checked!
Yes , the 1.5 liter engine in a 1991 Toyota Tercel IS AN INTERFERENCE ENGINE so if the timing belt breaks while the engine is running it can cause engine damage
Facing the front of the car, on the front of the engine, slightly towards the driver's side, behind and below the exhaust manifold. Mine had a green wrapped wire leading to it.
The check engine light on a Toyota Tercel can come on for a variety of reasons. It can be come on whenever there is a problem with the engine that needs attention. To reset it, disconnect the battery for a few minutes then re-connect it.
It was sadly discontinued in 1999 and replaced by the stupid Toyota Echo.
