Question about 1987 Toyota Celica

1 Answer

Heater won't get hot

I have a '87 Toyota Celica GT-S w/ 3S-GE engine and the automatic climate controls. The coolent level is good and the engine temp remains good while running. The system won't move the heater control valve under the hood so I remove the control wire and set it manually. Still nothing out of the vents but cold air. I have also checked the fuse and it's good.

The heat does does not work in my 98 Tahoe at all its blows cold all the time I have done changed the there and put new coolent in it still have no heat so I by pasted the heat valve and ran it right in...


If you are getting hot water/coolant to the heater core and still no hot air coming out the vents, then it's a issue with the climate control or blend door. After running your engine and it reaching normal operating temp, locate your heater hoses that goes to the heater core. Carefully touch them to make sure both hoses are hot to the touch, if they are, you are getting hot water/coolant to and from the heater core. So, then it will have to be a issue with the climate control in the dash or either the blend door in the air box. It's a common problem for the climate control to go out on these models, hope this helps.

Dodge shadow poor heat


Possible causes include low coolent level ( I know it sounds wrong, but if the coolent level is low hot coolent won't circulate to the heater core)

The thermostat may be stuck open, if it is the engine won't reach proper operating temp. Only solution is to replace, but it is easy to do and thermostats are inexpensive.

Heater core may be plugged, this is more likely if stopleak has ever been used to stop a radiator leak. Solution would be backflushing the heater core.

The valve that controls the flow of coolent to the heater core could be stuck or defective or the vacuum switch that controls the valve might be defective.

On a 2000 toyota celica gt, the engine will overheat when driving only, what can cause this?


Have you checked the engine temperature when the gauge shows fully high if it is true message and not lying and the problem is the temperature gauge? Since this happened stop the car open the bonnet touch the radiator hoses and even with off running engine touch the vents of the radiator to all surface and see it the temperature is everywhere the same.

first check radiator level if it is full and the heater is working good make sure temp gauge is functioning c orrectly it is most likely the coolant temp sensor but if this is a high milage vehicle and you have owned long time and never changed i would also replace thermostat and check plug to temp sensor forr good conections and good wires

My 2002 Toyota Celica fogs up and collects moisture on the windshield during or after a rain. Visibility is a major problem. Need help, this is truly unsafe.


Can be that your heater core or hose inside car is sometimes releasing alittle heat at the clamps. So long the inside of the floor is not wet or damp or car is not over heating. I would not worry about the heater to much inside unless this does not work...
Change the automatic climate control up or down to cooler or warmer i usually run it at least upto 10 or 20 degrees different than the outside anytime i drive mainly during rain or snow.. So if outside it is warmer means you need to be cooler and cooler means get warmer. Also If you don"t run that on a regular basis a quick Ac on and defroster front and back works well and generally fast.I really think that is all of your problem just get comfortable with your automatic climate setting. once in a while it may happen again only because of rapid temp. changing from outside air to inside air in your car..Rain X works really well for a couple weeks between apps.and saves wiperblades during raining times. Always drive safely and good luck 11_21_2011_5_34_27_pm.jpg

For 83-86 Camry, 87 corolla, 84-87 pickups and 4-runner: Code 12 = knock sensor or circuit (distributor or circuit on Cressida, Supra, and Celica 3S-GE)

87-90 Camry, all other models 88-90: Code 12 = Rpm signal/no NE or G signal to ECU within several seconds after engine is cranked.

All models from 1991 on: Code 12 = Rpm signal No "Ne" signal to the ECM within several seconds after the engine is cranked. No "G" signal to the ECM two times in Succession when engine speed is between 500 rpm and 4000 rpm.

I have a 1987 toyota celica gt and the heater won't come on, the blower works but no heat, fuses are good but no heat


This problem is specific to the Gen4 Celica (86-89). Intermittent or no heat heat is caused by cracked solder joints in the Heater Control Panel. You need to remove the panel and re-solder the solder joints. When electrical continuity is broken, the panel defaults to the cold setting. If you go over a bump and it touches again, you may get hot. Hence, intermittent or no heat. We have the complete DIY fix posted at www.st162.net and it's free. Pic below shows the heater control points to re-solder.

1988 Toyota Celica GT4 Computer box


There is no problem with your computer box, it says 3S-GT on it, thats the way toyota did them back then. same with the 3S-FE (says 3S-F on the comp. box) and 3S-GE (3S-G on comp. box.) i dont recommend removin the cat. you will get defected (or waht is equivelant to a defect where you are) due to smog and stuff like that. Turbo timer is wired to the igntion system, no problems there. and as for gauges: get a pro to install them, but there should be zero trouble.
