cold start

  1. Pre-88 Toyota Pickup/Hilux
    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...
  2. Celica Forum
    I bought a 1989 Celica Coupe the other day, it has some problems but I bought it at a very good price. never driven a car quite like this, most newer cars I've driven don't have the stability or the power or the efficiency. I love it to death, it chews up the dirt roads where I live which is a...
  3. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    Hi everyone, I just signed up here hoping you can help me figure out what’s wrong with my car so I will get right to the point. My 2013 Corolla ce manual transmission had been running great until recently when it started acting up. When it’s cold (sub-zero Celsius) my car idles high (between 1k...
  4. Tercel, Paseo, Starlet, and Sera Forum
    Hello, I've got an '84 Tercel with the 3A engine(not 3AC) that has recently been rebuilt. The engine was running beforehand, but #1 piston ring was either stuck or broken, so it would smoke like crazy until completely warmed up. I mistakenly left the carb sitting while rebuilding the engine...
  5. Corolla 6th Generation (1988-1992)
    I just picked up a 1990 sedan, it's in decent shape but it requires some gas pedal fiddling to get started when it's cold, and runs somewhat poorly until it warms up. Seeing as 'cold' right now where I am is 85 degrees, and winter is around 12 degrees, I am a little worried. Any ideas on...
  6. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Hi everyone, Just finished a timing belt job on a 98 Camry 5S-FE (4-cylinder) with auto trans. Whenever I start the car it makes an audible rattle/clanking noise for 1-2 seconds and immediately goes away. It only happens on cold starts and doesn't come back while running. On top of that, if...

  8. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    Hey guys, I have a Corolla E12 1,4 VVT-i. When I start the engine in cold, the engine revs up to about 2500 RPM. After 1-2 seconds comes down to 1200. Is it normal? I made a video:
  9. T-100 Forum
    All, I have a 1995 T100, 2.7 I4 (3RZ-FE), with a 5-speed manual behind it. Recently, after having the valve cover gasket replaced, a new issue arose in that the truck will not start when cold (greater than 2 hours without running). I can, however, spray a small amount of starting fluid into...
  10. Corolla 7th Generation (1993-1997)
    Possibly coincidental to colder weather, possibly because of it.. I do not have a tach, so by "normal" or "high" I mean by ear, to my recollection from before the problem, it's either "normal" or "high". Can't give RPMs here. On a cold start, the engine will idle normally (for cold) for a...
  11. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    I have a 4 cylinder 2002 Camry. I just had the front left caliper, front brakes, and brake pads replaced with Toyota brand parts. My car now makes a grinding, creaky noise when I turn left and only with a cold start. After it has driven awhile and warmed up it quits. It's does it on regular...
  12. 89-95 Toyota Pickup/Hilux
    Hello. I have been searching the forums for a few days and could use a bit of help. My 1991 pickup doesn't start when it's cold. After a night around 15 degrees the starter engages but the engine never catches. If the tempature raises I can start it later in the day. I have started it by leaving...
  13. Highlander 1st Generation (2001-2007)
    Hey fellas, Just picked up an '03 Highlander as a winter vehicle. I have a 2004 Subaru STi for the summer days. I was driving a 2000 Silverado Z71 in the winter, which I loved, but wasn't fond of the fill up costs. I do a lot of travel for part time studies from Sept-April so wanted...
  14. Corolla 7th Generation (1993-1997)
    Hi, I have a 1993 corolla le with 186000 miles on it. It's been a great car but it hates the cold weather. It shakes and sputters and the tach is up above 3,000 rpms for the first 15 minutes of every drive unless i warm it up for 20 minutes before driving and it goes through a ton of gas and...
  15. Corolla Older Generations (1969-1987)
    SUP GUYS Just bought a nice 1986 AE82 FWD 'Rolla. She runs good, no rust, etc etc. My question is... How do you start the dang thing? Now.. before you say turn the key.. I mean does anybody have the original manual instructions for starting her? Such as.. - Priming the engine - Holding...
