Question about 1987 Toyota Celica

3 Answers

I'm Confused don't know what it is...

Ok well i was doing about 140 in 4th (around 6000 rpm's) trying to get this guy's license plate number and the make and model of his car to report him for DUI and Passing in an unsafe zone, so i stopped to report him i had a wierd idle can't really explain what it sounded like but when i left i had this like grinding sound in all gears and had like no power.... getting a block from my house i put in my clutch and it stalled out... so i rolled it home now when i try and start it sometimes it tries to kick over but doesn't make it, i got it to turn over twice the first time it ran... but it had a tinging to it and sounded like ****... excuse the language, anyways the second time i had a friend who has worked on cars before in it and when it tried to kick over it made a smashing sound and he said it was my valves smashing could i just need to reset my timing or did i actually F**k something up? Please help me it's my first car and i have no idea what to do lmfao thanks for any help guys just email me the response please... ty very much

    i dunno i need to know what's wrong with it so i can start gettin it fixed... by the way i was doing 140 km/h

  • s0u1s1ay34 Jan 13, 2009

    your kidding ah ffs lmfao mmm well to answer your question there motor1258 it's a 3S-GE motor and it's got over 340,000 km or w.e it shows on the tripometer lol and i dunno if the belt has ever been replaced and it's is belt driven off the driveshaft... apperently. so even if i reset the timing chain i will have to get a new motor? cuz if i'm gonna get a rebuilt i might as well get a new motor .. right?

    I think I'd be real tempted to remove the timing belt cover & see if everything is lined up as it should be, before I went too much further.

    First of 3 questions. What engine is in it? (2) what's the current mileage/km whatever? (3) Do you know if timing belt/chain has ever been changed ?

Yeah MrScary I Think Got It As I Read It Sounded More And More Like You Might Have Taken It To Far. That Sound Is A lot Like That Of A Broken Off Piston. Pull The Head And Have A look.

You are going to have to Rebuild that Motor. Reseting your timing will do Nothing at this Point. She has gone beyond the Point of no Return!

License plate lamp replacement, how to on a 2004 pontiac sunbird


ok if its hard plastic around you license plate lamp and it feels very brittle...the chances of breaking it is bout a 80 pecent chance when trying to twist it out..but in the mean time feel up to where the bulb is and grab the bulb with a little pressure but not too much pressure...then gently as u can twist it to unlock it from its assembly or if its a puller then gently pull it but it may take a little wiggling and it should come right out

1996 ford explorer license plate fuse


I'm not to sure what one you did want license plate light or the tag light up high above your back door. I know I am reading license plate so I will say the fuse needs to be replaced. plate lamps need 2 light bulbs and the fuse box is under the steering wheel or under the hood there are 2.
in my book it said that it is a (194 trade number), I woulds change out bulbs and then fuse.
