Question about 1994 Toyota Tercel

1 Answer

Idles too low

My '94 Tercel idles too low when stopped, but when it's driving it's fine. I replaced the spark plugs thinking that it may have been missing in one cylinder but it's only gotten worse. I had to adjust the throttle cable to get it to stop stalling. Maybe it's a clogged fuel injector? Any suggestions?

A clogged fuel injector would make the engine shake, and your power would be compromised.
Whe you changed the plugs, did you put Toyota plugs in, or a different brand? More often than not, using any other plug than plugs bought at a Toy dealer can make the engine run worse. The engines are designed with a specific plug. Also, replace the wires if they are older than 5 years.

check your spark plugs and make sure their all connected tightly, could also be a fuel pump, fuel filter, dirty air filter, look if the igniter is well grounded, that could also be the cause

Pull the plugs. Sounds like you have a bad plug or a bad plug wire. Even an engine that misses will run well at high speeds but if it's missing at idle you might have a little oil on one of the plugs. I had a 91 tercel, ran great but leaked a lot of oil which would in turn foul the spark plugs. I'm sure you either have a bad wire or plug. Wouldn't mess with the idle, not sure what state you're in but it could impact emissions testing. Best of luck m'friend!

94 toyota tercel with no spark


Does it got a distribiter or does is it have a coil pack.I'm thinking an distribiter with 4 spark plug tirminals,I would look into the Ignition Control Module if it has one.I looked at a parts listing for the car and it shows it has one but looked at a Typical Ignition System Schematic and it doesn't show the igniton control module in there.But i would think it is needed to control the spark.I would look into it and see if there is one,if there is i would test it that would be my guess of what's causing no spark.I got a pic of the ignition control module and theTypical Ignition System Schematic for you.

Hope it helps

Car stalls while driving at high speeds


i would start by checking the spark plugs and leads. if that ok i would think there is a problem with the dispack that the spark plug leads fit to, if its cracked or any rust i would replace.

Still missing


hi there i seems that you have replace alot of components after driving for a few days to let the ecm relearn with the new components . is it still missing at low speed ? seems you may have a spark plug thats not offering up its full potential please isolate what plug is the weak one by removing one spark plug wire from plug at a time to listen to the engine and see what plug is causing miss ok good luck you could replace all but this is an extra expense take a look
