  1. Looking for help on idle problem

    Pre-88 Toyota Pickup/Hilux
    Hi! I'm seeing something strange with how my truck idles at some times. It pretty much sounds like it's going to die, then catches itself and bumps back up to normal speed, then starts to die again, etc... Oddly enough, this only happens in between a cold start and the truck being fully warm...
  2. Wire size of wires that connect to the battery

    Pre-88 Toyota Pickup/Hilux
    Does anyone know what size these are? They connect to the positive battery terminal via ring terminals. I'm guessing it's 10AWG, but I'd like to confirm before I get the wrong size.
  3. Glue in windshield for an 82?

    Pre-88 Toyota Pickup/Hilux
    It's solid, shiny, and black, which is urethane, correct?
  4. Glue in windshield for an 82?

    Pre-88 Toyota Pickup/Hilux
    Hi, I have an 82 with what looks to be a glue in windshield that needs to be replaced. Can I use a gasketed windshield if I find one at the j-yard, or do I have to use a windshield designed for a glue-in installation?
  5. Need advice on purchasing '84 Toyota 2.4L Diesel

    Pre-88 Toyota Pickup/Hilux
    Not to mention that a 22r w/ a tall rear end can get almost as good mileage. The diesel's of that era are up t 30 combined, the gassers are up to 26 combined.
  6. Are those round things fusible links?

    Pre-88 Toyota Pickup/Hilux
    They're connected to the positive battery terminal. Here's a link to a picture of them. https://www.box.com/s/21ea122bf4c281cc9c6e If they are fusible links, can I replace them with MAXI fuses?
  7. 93' V6 Camry failed CA Smog Test

    Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Make sure the car is fully warmed up before hand, and you can also lean out the AFM cog a notch or two if it comes down to it.
  8. 5 panel mirror?

    Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    They're a pain at night, although they tend to be halfway between the daylight/nightime glare of most mirrors, but that's the only drawback IMO. The mirror itself blocks out anything a sun visor does, you just have to shift your seating position for the fifteen or so minutes the sun is setting...
  9. Egr delete or delete kit

    Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    EGR delete will reduce mileage by a small amount, and increase power by a small amount.
  10. Missing Camry rear left wheel Stud. Is it dangerous to drive now?

    Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    You'll probably would have been fine driving for a while, just not like speed racer. I went for a year with a broken lug stud on each of my front wheels, but I drive like a granny too.
  11. 99 camry 5s-fe: modding for MPG

    Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    You're cat shouldn't be plugged unless you've been running obscenely rich for some reason. The belly pan is a good idea if your commute is highway, but I wouldn't bother with anything else you mentioned. The biggest thing is going to be slowing down. At 55mph you should get ~40mpg with a good...
  12. Questions about 3VZ HG replacement

    Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Talk about a pain in the ass. The bolts on the exhaust pipe flange (where it meets the manifold) broke my breaker bar. It looks like I can get a propane torch on everything except for the bolts on the rear bank exhaust flange. What's the best way to get those out? I'm guessing that a breaker +...
  13. Questions about 3VZ HG replacement

    Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Stuff like that is exactly why I'm asking about it before doing anything. I figure I can just do the same thing I do when re-using a t-belt. Clean and mark all the points where the belt/gears come into contact with white-out, then rub it off after reassembly. Is there something about the...
  14. Questions about 3VZ HG replacement

    Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    I did not know that. Are the manifolds just too much weight for the exhaust pipe to handle, or do they get in the way of something? I just realized I'll need to special order a replacement radiator from autozone anyway, so it'll definitely be a two (non-sequential) day event.
  15. Questions about 3VZ HG replacement

    Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    I'm trying to do this in a day, so I'm wondering what I need to do and what I can reasonably skip. Based on the shop manual it looks like I can pull the t-belt, all the upper intake (plenum/plug wires and so on) /fuel related stuff, exhaust manifolds, and then pull the heads as as two whole...
