Question about 1992 Toyota Paseo

1 Answer

Think it's the headgasket

Hey guy, I've got a 1994 Toyota Tercel with a fully built Toyota Paseo 5EFE turbocharged. I came back from a night at the track and parked as normal no problems noticed at that time. In the morning I started it and warmed it up for 5 minutes as normal. When I went to pull out of my spot it was missfiring like crazy, and sounded like a subaru with an agressive exhaust! I stopped driving it, and pushed it back to my barracks, as I had duty the previous night. Thinking that it was an ignition problem I checked all wires, took apart the distributor, and cleaned the contacts. Checked the coil, and everything ignition wise seems fine. I don't have the tools to do a leak down test so I can't tell if it's the headgasket for sure. I can't do a compression test either as I'm very limited in resources. Using the screwdriver stethascope it sounds like all of the cylinders are firing correctly, and there isn't any timing issues. I did do a makeshift leak down test with a half bottle of distilled water into the radiator inlet. It was bubbling a good bit. I just wanted to see if anyone had any ideas of what else it could be. I hope it's not a cracked head! Thanks for any input!

    No ignition timing issue as far as I can tell with a timing light. I'm going to do a compression test in the morning and make sure it isn't the rings! I really hope it isn't. Thank for the ideas there freetek! Apreciate it!

 and there isn't any timing issues.
Do you mean ignition or valve timing?
I've had your symptoms with a slipped timing belt (lost teeth) on (fortunately) a non-interference engine. Hope yours is too-

You should replace the fuel filter and check for vaccum leaks. Also you should check the compression of your vehicle this might solve your problem.

1994 toyota tercel


are you loosing coolant ???? if so check from where.take one spark plug out and if it's wet thenyes your headgasket is blown
if not. take the refill cap off " probably in your radiator or expansion tank "
turb=n your car on for around an hour.
reffill coolant as needed, because you might have an air bubble in your motor causing it to overheat
