Question about 1987 Toyota Tercel Liftback
I have a 1988 toyota tercel HTBK. Sat for 6 months. Started fine.. ran fine.. now it wont idle and stalls out
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!
