Question about 1985 Toyota MR2
I have a 1985 toyota mr2, i got it from a friend and two weeks after owning it i started to hear a clicking noise as if it was the valves, everything told me it was the valves, i opened the engine up, valves were fine seals were good. closed it up and car was running the same....clicking and bad power loss. the next day i started it to take it to a tech and it shut off, it wont crank, or anything, all the electrical system i checked and cleaned changed plugs wires, not the distributor, wondering if it could just be a bad distributor or something more serious.
Could be the timing belt? If it breaks it wont be an easy fix and it wont be cheap to have someone do it for you either. The good thing is that it CAN be fixed, unlike those Honda motors. The power loss issue makes me think that it is a timing belt issue. Hope this helps a bit...Good Luck!
