Hi, check your valve lash your lifters are not hydrolic, on 7AFE motor valve lash should be done cold and set at 0.15-0.25mm for intake and 0.25-0.35 for exhuast.  On the 5SFE motor set cold also is 0.19-0.29mm intake and 0.28-0.38 for exhaust.

My 94 celica st coup five speed very low torque on take off and up small hills. And is an average of 25 mpg right?


Your mpg is what it is. Sometimes better, sometimes worse. As for the low power, replace the EGR(exhaust gas recirculation) valve and you'll have the power expected form the engine.

Rattling noise when at low revs


the rattling noise most likely will be detonation. That is spontanious combustion before the spark occurs. causes vary but wrong octaine rating is one reason ,spark timing another.if you have an efi car it could be at the timing sensor. or a distributor car the saprk advance is wrong. Some efi engines can't adjust to hot weather to well so the fuel setting go out. however be aware that you have to have this checked out as it can still occur at higher revs it is just that you can't hear it. End result will be holes melted in the top of the pistons

On idel ok when reving up very top end rattle have been told the block is a 204e and head is a 205e could that be the problem


Yes!
If you build an engine like this, you must use the composite head gasket from the 204 engine or you will have a heavy top end rattle!

Great question. B204 and B234 engines have negative deck heights. (the piston sticks out of the block a bit, so you need a thicker head gasket.

Hi i have a 2004 vwlt 2.5tdi when the engine gets warm theres a tapping/rattle from top of head i seem to be worse as you let of the throttle,no smoke or lost of power any suggestion cheers jeff


MOTOR IS NOT GETTING ENOUGH OIL TO THE TOP END TO LUBRICATE VALVES AND LIFTERS. POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS; OIL PUMP NEEDS REPLACED, ENGINE NEEDS FLUSHED, OIL AND FILTER CHANGE. BAD RESULT MOTOR WILL EVENTUALLY BLOW UP IF NOT ATTENDED TO SOON.

On my 1994 L200 3000 mitsubishi there is a tappet which has stuck and is rattling,can you help.


Mits are well know for top end noisedue to hydrolic tappets. Note we are talking about a tapping or clicking sound here not a knock. You can try using an engine flush product if the noise is bad and then changing your oil. Follow manufactures instructions on the engine flush product. I have also used Marvel Mystery Oil (available at Walmart and most auto parts houses) with some success on this. Generally if the oil is not changed regularily eventually the tapping noise starts happening. FYI: hydrolic tappet can and do fail but generally the noise is associated with not maintaing oil changes

2001 Grand caravan engine rattles when revved it is not very noticable on tickover but rattles with the revs, it is a more of a rattle than a knock, Thought it may have been the tappits so I drained the...


when you flushed with kerosene and diesel you mixed the same two things together,,,, I don't ever do this because it loosen up debris and gunk and deposit and puts them where you don't want it...if you are concerned then change your oil more often....the one time i did do it I added kerosene to the oil that was still in the engine and ran it for less than 2mins...its scary...the problem is most likely the lifters (tapits) it is far better to let them go than flush your engine like you did.....let em go or put new ones in....hope this helps

Location of thermostat on 1993 toyota celica st


there is another thermostat in the car, the one that controls the air conditioning.
i am presuming you are talking about the engine thermostat right? so here it is .

trace the hose that came from the top portion of your radiator. at the end of the hose is an aluminum manifold where the temperature sending units are located. if you remove this manifold, you can see your thermostat laying on top. it is supposed to control the flow of water from the engine to your radiator. replace it and in putting it back, i suggest you have a sealant ready for the right function. a water resistant and temperature resistant sealant that could be use in water manifolds in the engine.

good luck and tnx 4 using fixya,
