I will ship outside the US if...

    Hi my name is Ryan and I am new to this forum. I recently started to have an issue with my Tercel, it pops out of 5th gear when accelerating.

    Hi guys, I recently bought a Tercel 1999 with 353 000kms on it and I can hear a little whine while accelerating in 1,2,3 gear. Is it the transmission of the engine sucking hair that make this sound? (Kinda similar to a Cold air intake). By the way, what is the transmission oil that goes with the...
