    My car ran fine prior to having to pull the intake manifold to repair a coolant leak at the bottom of the manifold. In the process accidentally broke the vacuum valve located underneath the intake manifold. Part was discontinued so I replaced it with one that looks similar to it from a 78...
  2. Celica Forum
    Hello all, I've been working on my 79 Celica for some time now and have been stuck with the same issue for awhile. The car will idle just fine for about 20 seconds before it stalls out. I've replaced the fuel pump, the fuel pump relay and the fuel filter and swapped in a brand new weber 32/36...

    Hi all. I have a 79 Celica with a 20R and electric fuel pump. I just got my new weber 32/36 installed but I’m gonna need to get a fuel pressure regulator. The car already has a return line I believe. However, since the weber can’t exceed 3psi on the fuel pressure, it looks like I won’t be able...

    After struggling with the stock carb I finally decided to go ahead and pick up a weber. Unfortunately, the instructions the carb came with aren’t exactly thorough. I’ve got the 32/36 with a water choke on a 1979 Toyota Celica with a 20R and an electric fuel pump. Any one got any experience...

    I've recently rebuilt the carburetor on my 1979 Celica and installed a new fuel pump, fuel filter, and strainer. It's a 20R. I've finally got it to start up consistently and idle at the correct speed. However, it only idles for about a minute or two before it finally sputters out. I'm not sure...

    I have a 1979 Celica ST with a stock Aisan carb. I just rebuilt my carburetor a few weeks ago and had to get my fuel lines repaired. Now the car is able to fire up and idles for about a minute or so before it dies out. The mechanic told me that my carburetor was flooding. Anyone know how I can...

    I’ve been trying to get my celica to get fuel to the carb. I replaced the fuel pump relay, the fuel filter, and the fuel pump itself. The pump is getting power, but when I try to start the car there’s still no fuel sending to the carb. I’m stuck here, any help is appreciated. It’s a 20R with an...
  8. Celica Forum
    I recently purchased 1979 Celica and it seems like fuel is not sending from the tank to the carb. When I pour fuel directly into the carb the engine turns over. I tested the wiring of the fuel pump with a volt meter and unless I’m mistaken, the pump appears to have power. Hopefully someone here...

    Got a beauty of a 20r runs great when it's above 40 degrees. Under 40 it chugalugs on start, putters for a big, then falls out SUPER hard with dramatic shaking and low idle. Once warmed up, runs fine again. Takes about 30 minutes. Been reading/asking around and have seen/heard suggestions of...

    Hey guys and gals newb to the forums! I run a 1984 Celica at my local short track in the mini stock 4cyl division. Long story short, had a lot of hesitation & tons of overheating (especially later in the season) on the track late last year. Parked the car for the winter & a few sponsorships...

This issue began suddenly with no warning signs. Im fairly mechanically inclined. It has no ecu so all it needs to...
  15. Pre-88 Toyota Pickup/Hilux
    Hey there everyone I'm a new user. I recently received a 1978 pick up from my uncle, from what I've been told they were driving down the freeway, white smoke went everywhere, then they stopped it and towed it home. Now from what I gather I'm assuming it's a blown head gasket, but as I start to...

    Replaced my 20r with a new LKQ long block. Came with new timing chain which rattles. The 20r has double timing chain. Timing chain tensioner on the drivers side maybe the culprit. Mechanic says 3 year unlimited mileage warrantee from LKQ and is adamant about my concerns with the noise. My...
