How to replace the fuel pump in 92 Paseo?

It's pretty easy to do.

Take out the back seat by pulling sharply on the bottom of it at the corners. You'll find a little black cover. Remove the cover and there you'll find the top of the pump. Remove it carefully because there is a sensor unit on it that provides information to your fuel gauge.

Remove the wires and fuel hoses then replace them onto your new pump and put it all back together.

It's an easy quick job. Keep a fire extinguisher nearby of course and keep all ignition sources well away from the area.

How to change Toyota Paseo transmission fluid?

Assuming it is a manual transmission: Remove the lower drain plug on the transaxle body and allow all existing fluid to drain completely. Replace the drain plug and remove the fill valve, located higher on the transaxle body. You'll need a pump assembly and vinyl hose to pump the transmission fluid into the transaxle. Any good auto parts store sells these plastic pumps at nominal prices. The pump assembly screws onto the top of the transmission fluid bottle. Pump the new oil through the vinyl hose into the transaxle until it begins to come back out of the fill hole. Then screw the fill plug back in. It a very easy process once you've found the drain and fill plugs and get yourself situated underneath the transaxle.

Where are the coolant temperature sensor and the air intake sensor on an '89 Toyota Camry LE?

From my little knowledge, the coolant temp sensors is on the bottom of radiator. I have a 95 Camry and recently replaced the radiator and thermostat and my car still overheats. My next project is a temp sensor. This sensor tells the radiator fan when to come on. Generally at about half temp the sensor tells the fan to come on. If this doesnt fix it, look into a fan clutch relay or your water pump could need replacing.

, Keep up the good work FAQFARM!

AnswerThe coolant thermo sensor is located on the outlet to the upper radiator hose. It has green connector and facing up. Air thermo sensor is inside airflow meter housing.

Additional:

Remove the 2 wire connector lead. If the fans start up immediately, the temp fan switch is faulty.

If you measure the sensor, using a multimeter on ohms, it will read around 0.5 ohms. Put the sensor into boiling water and measure the sensor again. It will only have risen to around 2.5 to 3.0 ohms. This confirms that it is unserviceable.

How do you replace the antenna on the 1992 Toyota Paseo?

1. Remove radio 2. Unplug antenna cord (usually on the left of the radio as you are facing the radio) from the back of the radio. 3. Thread antenna cord by gradually pulling it through to where a hole is located down and in front of the driver's side car door(this is where the antenna cord comes down from windshield/window column). 4. Tie about four feet of a strong line or string to the end of the antenna cord plug (this will help when threading in the new antenna cord). 5. Unscrew the two screws holding the antenna assembly near the roof on the windshield/window column. 6. Carefully pull the antenna assembly up from the windshield/window column at the same angle as the column. Do this until the end of the antenna cord, with the string attached to the plug, is visible. 7. Untie the string or cord from the old plug and tie it on to the plug of the new antenna cord. 8. Carefully pull the attached string or cord from the hole located down and in front of the driver's side car door. At the same time make sure the cord is being fed through the hole where the antenna assembly fits. Keep pulling on the new cord until its plug appears at the hole located down and in front of the driver's side car door. Pull the new cord out through the hole eliminating all of the slack in the new cord. 9. Repeat steps 1 through 5, but in reverse order. Added: Excellent advice was given above. I was able to replace the antenna on my '92 Paseo. One word of advice: You may have trouble pulling up the antenna assembly up from the windshield/window column. This is because there are two clips located underneath the steering wheel assembly that are holding the antenna cable in place. I found this by accident when I was following the antenna cable starting from the end ( that plugs into radio) along underneath the steering column.

Check Engine Light

Check engine light came on 1991 Toyota passeo?

There is a small black box under the hood located by the driver side strut tower. The black box (diagnostic box) is only about one inch by 2 inches. If you open the cover to the box you will see a few rows of electrical connectors and on the underside of the "diagnostic box" cover there should be a sticker with a letter and possibly a number that identifys all of those electrical connectors in the box. Take a paper clip and bend it into a "U" shape. Take the paper clip and connect the electrical connector "T1" to "E1" (look at the sticker under the cover). Its possible they may be labeled slightly different, like "Te" or "Te1" or "E". Get a pen and paper and sit in the driver seat of the car. Turn the ignition key to "run" (thats where the dash lights up and the buzzer for ignition and door being open are beeping. DO NOT START ENGINE at this time. You should see the "Service Engine Soon" light start flashing. If not flashing you need to go reconnect the paperclip again. the number of flashes indicates which code it is and what the fault is. For example if you see "flash, flash"....flash, flash, flash" That is code 23. All of the codes will be 2 digits. You should see the same code flash 3 times before the next code is displayed (there may be only one code or lots of them). Then you need to find out what the code means (what the problem is) by either searching online, buying a repair manual for your car and look up the code or call the auto parts store and ask them. You may want to try clearing the codes as described below and if the light doesn't come back on Yipee it's fixed. If you think you have fixed the fault (made the repair) you can reset (clear out the codes) in the computer by removing EFI 15 amp fuse from fuse panel in the engine compartment for 30 seconds. Use the paperclip and jumper the connectors mentioned above, the turn the key to run (NOT START)and if the computer is cleared of all codes the "Service engine soon" light will just do a "flash,flash,flash,flash,flash,flash" with no pause in between. If you get the "flash, flash....flash, flash, flash" then you need to remove EFI 15 amp fuse for a while longer to clear the codes from the computer. Turn off the key and remove the paper clip, Start up the engine and if the light stays out, you have fixed your problem. If the light comes back on you will need to do the paper clip trick again and see what the code is this time. It maybe the same old code(s) or a new code. Good Luck!!

Thermostats

How do you replace the thermostat located on a 1992 Toyota Paseo?

It will be the lower radiator hose. You have to pull the distributer. Marked it so you do not mess up the timing. Remove two 10 MM Nuts Becareful installing the thermosat gasket if not seated right you will ruin the gasket. Time 11/2 to two hours first time. You will need to drain the radiator partially to reduce the antifreeze mess when you remove the hose from the radiator to the thermostat housing and/or the thermostat housing bolts. You don't have to pull the distributer but it is a lot easier as the thermostat housing (cover) is right there behind the distributer. Also, you need to make sure the thermostat is put in facing the right direction. Make sure to get a new gasket for the thermostat housing. ************************************************** Mine is a 94. I'll assume it is similar. I was not confident enough to remove the distributor. The mount was slotted and I know you do not want to get it misaligned. Experienced mechanics can probably tell you more. Instead, I removed the battery and the air intake ducting and the air filter assembly. The mechanic's instructions above were helpful. My battery used 10 mm sockets. The ducting was 10 mm but the base, where it bolts to the car, was 12mm. You'll need a socket extender to reach the nuts on the thermostat cover. I think mine is about 4-5 inches. A longer extender will be helpful to get the 12mm bolts out of the base of the air filter assembly. It's not nearly as tight removing all of this and you can see pretty good under the distributor to do this work I was able to get mine off without taking the hose off of the cover. You'll need to remove the plug on the sensor that's on the thermostat's cover. Pinch the connector near the wires and it should release. It's tight in there, but a good squeeze will release the connector. Replace it before you tighten the thermostat cover while you have a little play. I got mine on after I tightened the cover, but it was pretty tight. I bought the new gasket (spend the dollar--the old one was pretty warped) and it has a groove in it. Work the edge of the thermostat into that. Hold it against the cover with your fingers as you place the cover on the engine block. Have the two nuts ready to finger tighten so that the thermostat stays aligned. This was my first time. It took me about one hour and fifteen minutes. I'm a geek by trade, too ;-) I replaced this because my car was running hot. Clue: When I turned on the heater, it would cool down.

How do you adjust the idle on a 1992 Toyota Paseo?

Idle adjustment AnswerOn the top of the throttle body, (I'm not trying to insult anybody, but on your car it says '16 VALVE EFI') in big red and black letters. You will see a hole slightly above and to the right of those words. A flat head screwdriver will turn the screw that is inside. This screw allows a little more air to pass around the throttle plate, hence, increasing your idle speed. Hope that helps. I know in some states, if you idle is too high, your car won't pass the emissions test. The test won't even initialize. I recommend setting it to around 800 RPM, or slightly less. The only reason you may need to turn it up more than that, is perhaps, on a car with an automatic transaxle, since when it is in gear, the idle can drop dramatically, and when you accelerate, the engine may stop. Usually on high milage vehicles.

What tools are needed to change the rear disk brakes on a 1992 Lincoln Town Car?

Jack and tire wrench. You will need to jack up the car and remove the wheel of course. Jackstands are a good idea too. I just did it for a 94 Towncar. The calipers can be removed by inserting a suitably sized Torx wrench (mine was a socket that fit on my ratchet) into the two mounting bolts that face inwards - away from you. These bolts are hard to see. If you don't have a Torx wrench and you plan on doing work on cars in the future, you may as well buy a set. A screwdriver at the top of the pads will help loosen the calipers/pads, and then the top of the caliper should slide out, followed by the bottom, which has a clip that fixes it to the bracket. Then the pads can be popped out by hand or with a screwdriver. Mechanics iron wire or a cut and bent coathanger can be fashioned to support the caliper from the body frame - generally you do not want to remove the hydraulic brake line unless it is damaged or leaking - and you do not want to cause that damage by letting the caliper dangle on its brakeline. If the parking brake has worn a ridge into the drum area of the rotor, the star wheel adjuster at the top can be loosened with a screwdriver. WD-40 or equivalent used sparingly may help but keep the lubricant off the shoes and pads. If you get lubricant or grease on the rotor, you will need to degrease it. Check the rotor for wear; a caliper-type micrometer is useful, or your auto parts store/machine shop can check it for you. For some the spec is not less than 11.25mm, but check this spec for your model and year. If, after turning it, the rotor thickness will be less than that, you should get new rotors at common auto parts stores - generally not too expensive. That's it. The only unusual tool would be the Torx wrench. You may also needa tool to turn the puck in on the rear brakes.

Where is the reverse back up light switch located on a 1992 Paseo manual trans with no cruise?

You'll find it after you remove the air filter assembly on top of the trans axle housing. There are only two electrical connectors there. One is the backup light switch the other is a thick ground wire. You'll be able to tell the difference easily. The ground wire is thicker.

What causes check engine light to come on in 95 Toyota Paseo?

There is no way to know without reading the code. Use a code scanner to figure out what's wrong. They are available at auto parts stores and are quite easy to use.

Note:

The paseo uses the old type of electronics so you have to go to a shop that has a reader for all types of computers. Auto Zone and other "free" reading places will probably not be able to assist you . There is a question called you can find out the manual way to read the code. See Check engine light came on 1991 Toyota passeo?

How do you change the pcv valve on a 1993 Toyota Paseo?

First, locate the pcv valve. It is on the top of the valve cover in the center of it and has a small hose(about 4" long) going into the intake manifold. Now you will need needle nose pliers to remove the clamp from the pcv valve. Take your pliers and grab the round clamp at the two ends facing up and squeeze until the clamp opens. While holding the clamp open, gently move the pliers left and right while pushing towards the intake manifold. Once the clamp has moved off the valve, release the pliers. You should now be able to remove the rubber hose from the valve. Pull the hose off the valve. Now that the hose is removed, you should see the plastic end of the valve(right angle shape) Next, hold the valve at the base of the grommet(this is on the valve cover) pull up on it while twisting it back an forth. This part may be a little hard as some pcv grommets are tighter than others. Removed it little by little. Don't try to pull it out all in one shot or it might snap apart. I'd recommend getting your replacement pcv valve from the dealer. I've seen some aftermarket valves not work properly. Now the reinstall. Take your replacement and put a small amount of oil(very little) on the valve where it inserts into the valve cover. push straight down on the top of the valve until it is fully seated. When the valve is fully seated, you should be able to turn the top of the valve into position facing the intake manifold. Now, attach the hose to the new pcv valve and use pliers to move the clamp back into place on the hose. You will notice a ring shaped imprint in the hose where the clamp should be seated. Good Luck!!!

edit: I advise also replacing the grommet since it will eventually get so hard and brittle that when you do have to replace it it will break up and pieces will fall into the engine.

How do you change a tail light on a 93 Toyota Paseo?

No need to pay those Toyota dealer prices. Very simple; open the trunk and look inside opposite the taillight needing replacement. Pull down the carpet just behind the lens; there are inserts the shape of a quarter holding the carpet in place but, will pop out. Once exposed you will see two nuts. Take those off; then you can just swing the entire lens out to either the left if it's the left lens or right,if it's the right lens. This is definitely a #1157 bulb replacement if it's the brake light. The wire leading to the bulb is sitting in a socket which if you turn the socket, will come out. Once out, turn the bulb to get that out and replace with new bulb. Put the socket back into place and remember to turn it into position to lock. Swing the lens back into position and replace the two screws originally taken off and fit the carpet back into place.

Transmission Fluid

How do you check the automatic transmission fluid level on a 1992 Paseo. I understand it's done while the car is running but the dipstick only says hot and cold?

Your owners manual will tell you what fluid to use. Also look on the dipstick, or call a Toyota dealer. Make sure you do it right. Overfilling an A/T can do serious damage. You check the automatic transmission fluid when the engine is running and preferably warmed up. The "cold" and "hot" listed on the dipstick are to tell you where the fluid level should come to on the dip stick when the transmission fluid is: Cold: You just started the engine and the engine has not been run in the last 3 or more hours. Hot: The engine has been run for 20 minutes or more. Make sure you get the right transmission fluid (check manual or ask auto parts store employee) You need to add any additional transmission fluid to the tranny through the dip stick tube. A funnel with a flexible spout is the best to minimize spilling tranny fluid all over the engine. Overfilling the transmission will cause the seals to start leaking and also possibly ruin the internal parts of the transmission.

Where is the thermostat located on a 1992 Toyota Paseo?

The Themostat is underneath the distributor cap, (the round thing with all the spark plug wires attached to it). Look underneath the distributor cap and you should be able to see the cover to the themostat, it's a hard job. It takes a 6 millimeter by 1.0 threads, long neck attachment, with a socket 11 milimeter or a 10 milimeter socket attachment to take the nut and bolt off. You may have to move some things to make it easier to get to it just remember what you move. Good Luck!!

On a 1992 Toyota Paseo the brakes freeze up after 20 minutes of driving the calipers has been replaced what could be wrong?

The brake pads will heat up even with a little preasure on the disk. As they heat they expand. That will make them progressivly apply more preasure. I suspect you may have a bad brake line or your brake pedal may be stuck part way down. How long has it been since you have replaced your brake hoses? They may look good on the outside but be constricted on the inside. ��~ you might want to check fluid level in master cyl. expands if too full will lock brakes up has no were to go but calipers and or wheel clys.

Where is the O2 sensor located on a 1992 Toyota Paseo?

The oxygen sensor is located in the exhaust manifold before the catalytic convertor. If you look down between the radiator and the exhaust manifold a few inches before the exhaust pipe connects to the exhaust manifold you will see the Oxygen sensor. The sensor will have 2 wires coming from it and it kinda looks like a sparkplug stuck into the exhaust manifold. There is 2 nuts that hold the oxygen sensor into the exhaust manifold.
