    Hello, me and my friend have been trying to get his car to start for a while now. One day we where driving to get his ac charged in his car and it randomly just lost power and shut off. We diagnosed it and found out that the distributor wires that comes off the harness (picture listed below)...

    Hi, I recently purchased an 1984 Cressida in great shape. 90K miles, works well. Only issues: replaced the alternator, the antenna won't retract, and the AC doesn't work. It's an r-12. Holding out on the 134 replacement. haven't decided if I want to or not. Either way! The only other thing on...

    So I recently bought an mx83 and I'm fairly new to cars and what not (being only 15) but I was wondering if s14 springs fit on stock mx83 struts? I have heard of them fitting on the rear but I'm mainly wondering about the front. Thanks for the help!

    I am having a problem with getting the car to fire. I set the crank to 0 both cams to the mark on E & the distributor shaft to the dot on the gear. I am getting fuel to my rails. I had the 15 amp fuse blown under the hood that I replaced, but still nothing. I bought the car taken apart and it...

    Just making this post for curiosity reasons, due to the the fact tat me cressy seems kind of under powered at the low end. The fact that it's an auto, always seemed like the problem to me, but it's so low that I can't even do a brake stand in low gear, which should be possible with an lsd and...

    Hi guys and girls, I’ve got a 83 mx62 Cressida. My issue is: the headlights were working fine, then one night I flicked the high beams off and the lights went off all together. Then the high beams stayed on. When I got home I discovered that the low beams would only work in a certain position...

    Just picked up an 82 cressy that needed a heater core. Pulled the dash, replaced the heater core, and now the car starts and runs for a few seconds and dies. Saw another post on this forum that lead me towards an afm/circuit open relay issue and I feel like I've hit a dead end. Fuel pump doesn't...

    Well It's that time folks. I began importing for the sole intention of owning and driving my dream cars. I started with a S13 Silvia, then the Cresta and now I think it's FJ80 time. I spent quite of bit of time following the 25 year bubble prior and post and I am certain this is one of, if not...

    Hi everyone, I have a GX81 cressida with 1G-FE engine. First I had a temperature issue with the car and thanks to the advise from bgrieger I manage to contain that problem. Now I have been scratching my head over & over to this ridiculous issue with my engine having a hard time to start up...

    Hey all, new to the forum (so I apologise if I've missed a post that remedies my problem hahah). I've got an MX62 Cressida and I've just about finished replacing most of the front and rear bushings (as when I got the car they were in terrible condition haha). I've done a bit of research on how...

    We dragged this car out of the woods. It was being stripped for LeMons 24 and the kid lost interest and walked away from it. This car has the 5 speed manual and the LSD. I have gotten the 5m Ge that was in it to run, and even drive, but two odd things happen with the fuel pump. One is that it...

    Hi all I've recently picked up my first Cressida (1989 mx83 glx) the car had been sitting for two years but was still in pretty good condition, engine sounded healthy no noticeable leaks it was worth the money. So i bought it and on the drive home I found out it doesn't seem to have third gear...

    hey guys just was looking at some old cressida's and im not entirly sure what goes wrong with them. I would like to know some common issues and things I should watch out for when looking for one.

    Is there a forum for selling the whole car here? CA state will give me $1,500 to junk but I don't think this rare car should be crush. Car run good and I put lots of new parts into it over the years. Transmission however, starting to make whizzing sound and it seem like main pump. It still run...

    Hi everyone, I'm not really too big into forums, but I figured this would be a good place to dump all of my progress pictures and info about my current build. I originally became interested in Cressida's when I saw one of my good friends 1JZ swap, then later LS swap his MX73. That being said...

    5MGE Timing 86 Cressida, I pulled the head to clean the intake/exhaust runners and valve seals. Also deleted the remaining emission equipment while there *the EGR system*. I set the crank and cam timing and slapped the distributor in and it all went to hell for me. I've been trying to follow...
