white smoke means coolant/antifreeze entering the combustion chamber.if this is still hapening it will take a lot of money to fix, and I'll tell you why:

1-blown head gasket2-warped cylinder head3-cracked cylinder head4-cracked engine block(water jackets/passages/ect)

out of all of this possible problems the head gasket will be your cheapest problem. at an auto shop don't be surprise if they ask you for $500+.

here is a simple test that you coul do and find out where the leak is

start by removing 1 sparkplug and have someone crank your engine.you don't have to let the engine run just crank it a few times. start with the center plug. stand clear if you crank the engine and see the white smoke or water condensation come out of the spark plug hole you have found the leak.

this test is mainly for you to use with a v/w type engine so you don't have to spend money fixing both sides if only one has the leak. .

good luck.

In my Toyota tercel model 1998 is located in right part of the engine, next to the windshield. Right beside the brake fluid canister. I hope that helps.

I asked the above question, but got the answer to "where is the oil filter" not what I wanted the fuel filter would be somewhere on the fuel line close to the tank usually

The 1987 Toyota oil filter is located on the back side of the engine, near the bottom. You will need to crawl underneath the car to see the oil filter

Follow the intake air plenum from the air filter. It connects to the carburetor. The carburetor is mounted on the intake manifold.

on top of the engine under a large round cap placed on top of carbie.

A 1996 Toyota Tercel will hesitate on acceleration at cruising speed if the fuel filter or injectors are clogged. This prevents the engine from receiving enough full and will hesitate.

By not changing it, because it does not exist.

6.5 qts if you are also changing the filter.

No, it should be on the front of the block under the exhaust manifold. Spin it off using a filter wrench, fill it half full of oil, lubricate the seal on the top of the filter with clean oil & spin it back on. Once you have it hand tight, tighten it 1/8th of a turn more with the filter wrench.

It is located under the hood on the drivers side firewall between the power brake booster and the carbon canister.

On the firewall above the air intake hose and the purge canister. You can't miss it.

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

front of the engine,when your facing the car .look down to your left,long handle pliers or oil-cap wrench will do! make sure to wipe after filter is off and check alloil filter rings.

User Avatar

It is very simple since it's only two clip that you have to loose and after put the new filter in place in the bracket on the firewall on the left side (driver side). I believe that the filter held by two clips is for the carbureted engine, while on the fuel injected '91 tercel, the fuel lines are bolted on top and bottom and the filter is bolted to the firewall in an inconvinient location.

Changing the oil filter on the 2008 RAV4 only requires changing the filter element. The filter element is located in the reusable oil filter housing located near the front of the motor below. If you have your owners manual the location is referenced in the book.

5 Quarts........a little more if you are changing the filter as well.

User Avatar

6.5 qts when changing the filter at the same time. Drain it warm.

User Avatar

Go buy one and you will then know what it looks like. Follow the fuel line from the fuel tank to the engine and you will find it.

User Avatar

If you're changing the filter also, It takes 5 quarts.
