    I love watching super 8 film of me in my dad's Toyota pickup truck, or rolling around in my mom's Yellow Tercel on the way to preschool. I have many great memories of Toyotas, like the time we ran out of gas on the way to Disneyland back in 1983 in my grandparents Corolla Wagon. A decade...

    Looking at a 1993 Tercel DX 4-DR Hello all, I live in the Rocky Mountains and have stumbled upon a Green 1993 Toyota Tercel DX 4 Door for $350. I would like to use this as a Point A to B vehicle and possibly a "Winter Rat" if it handles well. I looked under it, in it, around it, and drove...

    Hi, im Justin. I own a 95 tercel that I recently swapped from 4 speed c140 to a 5 speed c150 or c151. I thought I had a c150 until I saw on Wikipedia that the 95 to 99 tercels used the c151. any way to tell for sure. the trans came out of a 97 tercel 2D. My big problem though is that my cv axles...

    Sorry, no pictures yet, but I got a nearly pristine 1990 Tercel coupe with a 3-speed auto trans and it happens to be one af the very first with fuel injection. Love the car, tons of fun, just has developed one issue: The horn doesn't work. After diagnosing it thoroughly, the issue appears to be...

    hello, i have a 96 paseo i recently pulled the motor and had it completely rebuilt when i put everything together (new clutch, cv axles the works) all of a sudden the (5-spd) transmission is making like a soft grinding noise that gets loud and drags very hard on acceleration (it NEVER made...

    [definitely NOT cross-posted in 1st & 2nd Generation (1983–1986 & 1987-1991) - though there is a related post there ] Hello everyone, My old Subaru is in dire straits (head gasket, nursed it along for a year), but I learned a lot trying to save it, including how much I wanted a simpler engine...

    I have a 1991 Toyota Tercel. 1.5L motor. 3-Speed Automatic. Just over 200,000km. Last summer the car would randomly stall when I tried to accelerate after coming to a complete stop. During winter it didn't stall once but now that the outside temperature has risen slightly it has doing it again...

    Hey, 1st post... I'm an Audi performance technician, and am for the most-part not much of a Japanese enthusiast. Regardless, the Toyota Tercel is a very interesting vehicle to me. Light weight, well engineered, cheap as hell, easy swap options, and robust motors. Just picked up a 1992 Toyota...

    My 1995 Tercel has 246K miles on it and a manual 4-speed transmission. I had the clutch replaced and flywheel resurfaced at 160K miles. Other than weak compression in one cylinder, a bent tie rod, and oil leaking out all over, it's doing fine. Well, it was doing fine. Last week, for a few days...

    Greetings all, and thanks for reading. My gf has a 1996 Tercel (w/4-speed manual transmission) with about 160K miles on it. The last transmission service was to install a new clutch, probably around 120K miles. During an oil change 3 months ago, the dealer noted a minor leak of transmission...

    Forgive me if I'm duplicating a thread, I didn't see one in my initial, nowhere near thorough, search. When my Tercel starts up it squeals, then keeps with the high pitched noise when it runs. I'm assuming it's the idler pulley. it's coming from the belt area, and it looks like the belts could...

    Car is rough, engine swap is complete, wiring harness and ecu have been sorted, good candidate to swap into a better car, or just fix a few things on this and have a good sleeper. Was a jdm ebay engine, probably has about 50k on it now, friend of mine did the swap, i got the car in a trade and...
