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-

How do i take tbe front seats out 1994 tercel


You will need to move the seat all the way back to get to the front 2 bolts that hold the seat track to the floor, and then move it all the way to the front to get to the back 2 bolts. They will probably have some plastic snap on covers over the bolt heads than will need removed first.

I have a 1994 Toyota Paseo that if it sets over night its like the fuel bleeds back. I have put a fuel pump and a fuel pressure regulator on it and it still takes 3 or 4 cranks to get it started. But one...


WHEN YOU PARK IT FOR THE LAST TIME OF THE DAY TRY PINCHING OFF THE RETURN LINE ( AT A RUBBER SECTION OF LINE ) AND LET IT SIT OVER NIGHT. IN THE MORNING UNPINCH THE LINE AND TRY TO START IT. SEE IF THAT DOES IT. THE ONLY THING LEFT IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU MAY HAVE A CHECK VALVE THAT ISNT HOLDING. IF THAT DOESNT DO IT THEN IT IS A DIFFERENT SYSTEM THAT IS CAUSING YOUR HARD START ISSUE.
