    Hello! I have a1995 Tercel (5efe) that was blowing white smoke, assumed it was the head gasket, but after tearing it down one of the valves had a hole in it because they have worn their seats so far. I am not super knowledgeable about cars, but I assume that when I reassemble it, the problem...

    Engine just started knocking badly on this car and I am having trouble finding a replacement that will ship to Canada. Would it be worthwhile to have someone rebuild it? or is there another engine I can swap in that would be easier to source? Love this car and want to see her back on the road.

    I just got a 1991 Tercel DX sedan in auction with 190k, in great running and driving condition... With one exception. The AC doesn't blow cold. No history of it ever being recharged was found. The problem is it is not retrofitted to run R-134a refrigerant, just the since-banned R-12 refrigerant...

    I have a '96 2-door Tercel. I managed to get new brake shoes into the rear drums since the old ones were down to the metal on one side. I finally got them adjusted right. the braking is strong and the parking brake works fine... but now I have a constant groaning sound coming from the back ( one...

    Hey all, glad to be apart of the community. Just bought a '98 Toyota Tercel 2dr manual. The car does have its flaws, but I love it with all my being. Can't wait to see what the little guy has in store for me.

    I have a 95 Tercel with the factory 13" steel wheels, and I'm wanting to put 15" wheels on it. What width wheel and offset along with tire size should I look into in order to get a flush fitment with the fender with out have to pull and roll them. Thanks, Justin

    I’m restoring a 1982 Tercel and need a source for original parts, at least a close to original as possible. Just to start, I’m looking for a driver’s seatbelt assembly that isn’t torn or broken, four of those rectangular plastic pieces that hold the door locks in place, matching locks for the...

    so i just got this 1990 tercel coupe auto and it's slow but none the less i want to swap it with the 4E-FTE but dont know what tranny is good to go with it. ive been looking through forums and saw that the 5 speed is the best bet but has weak gear ratio so the acceleration is with that gear...

    So I recently picked up a 93 tercel dx. I paid 650 for it and thought I got a steal because I'm from up north and this thing has absolutely zero rust. About a week after buying it I hear a terrible scraping and can feel something binding. I got it back to my shop and although I didnt remove the...

    I know there are several older engine swap options for tercels and I've seen the threads about them. My question is would anything newer fit under the hood? I know you can get new corollas in a 6 speed manual, could that engine and transmission fit? I've got a 91 Tercel that I just rebuilt the...

    I have an odd question about center consol options for a 91 Tercel that wasn't optioned with one. Do you think it would be possible to make a Del Sol center consol fit in a 1991 tercel? The only reason I want to put a Honda part in my toyota is because my tercel didn't come optioned with a...

    What’s up y’all. Newbie to the Tercel game here. I recently picked up a 1994 Tercel l30 coupe, and have decided I want to modify the car. I’m originally a Honda guy and don’t know shit about these cars. All I know is I can fit a Starlet GT 5efte or 4e whichever it is into it. I’d like to know...

    Hello everyone, I have an unusual question to ask. I am wondering if it is at all possible to add any sort of negative camber to the rear of a '98 Tercel, and if so, how to do it. I am wanting to do a "stance" look on the car (could very possibly be a dumb idea) and I am not sure how to go about...

    Me and a buddy co own a 1989 Tercel hatchback with the greatest spray-paint paint job in the world (to me at least). The previous owner happened to drive it without oil on many occasions so the engine is completely thrashed. Me and my buddy are hoping to swap a new engine into it and make it...

    I have a sick 1989 tercel hatchback with a engine that is completely blown. I was wondering what the best engine/ transmission swap options would be. I was hoping to get something quicker and more modern than stock but also something that is still not unreasonable for price and difficulty to...
