Question about 1992 Toyota Paseo
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!
> 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-
