If it has been sitting for quite some time the fuel will go stale or condensed with water (water will sit on the bottom of wherever the fuel is....
1. Drain Fuel Bowl on Carburettor
2. Replace fuel filter
3. Drain off about 5 liters out of hte bottom of the tank.

REconnect all lines of system you have dissasembled and crank to see if it will start.... if no good within 1 minute of cranking... you may need to completely drain fuel tank and refill with fresh fuel.

To Prevent this from happening in the future you need to store with a full tank and blank off any vents to prevent air from entering the fuel system.... remove when coming out of storage and start!

Suggest that you read the entries posted under cars/t594234-toyota_lacks_power at this fixya website. 87-90 Toyota Tercels have significant carburetor problems.

My Toyota tercell, 1997 has started to shake pretty bad while idling, it stops some when the AC kicks in but shortly after starts to shake again. Runs fine while driving.


Sounds like you may have a bad motor mount. While driving and under a torque situation you wont notice it as much,but at idle you will as it has extra room to move.

1984 Toyota tercel wagon


Although this isn"t a proper fix, and may affect emissions, I ran accross this problem on a friend's 87 2wd wagon.

There is a dashpot that controls a lever the Idle set screw is on, I am guessing it is a decel valve that closes butterfly when coasting in gear. I never looked at a manual to figure out what controls the vacuum valve that is on the passenger side of the engine compartment, but if you disconect the vacuum line and plug it that lever will not back off and idle will remain where you set it with the adjustment screw.

Make sure the engine is warmed up and not on a fast idle cam before adjusting idle.

The car is a 5 speed, I not sure if automatic cars are the same.

The car idles fine now and still run's great and gets 37+ MPG with 240000 miles!

If you want to fix it properly you would have to diagnose why that dashpot is being actuated at idle

1993 TOYOTA TERCEL 1500cc Valve Seals Replaced now smokes much worse


You either have had the wrong valve seals installed, they are physically missing, or the valves are incorrect (too loose in the guides/stem too thin). The rocker arm seals will not contribute to your issue. If it did not have the oil smoke before you took the head off, the issue is with whatever the machine shop did. Valve seals have to fit TIGHT, or oil will go down the valve stem into the intake.
Take the head back to the machine shop & tell them to fix it. For free.
