Question about 1983 Toyota Corolla Tercel

1 Answer

Carburetor on 1983 Tercel runs too rich. Stalls runs rough

Daughter has an 1983 Toyota Tercel with carburetion problems. Bought it for her for $250 a year ago with 83000 miles, one owner. My mechanic says compression is fine but these carburetors are notorious for malfunction and replacements can come up with same problem very quickly. Car stalls and won't start at times or runs rough apparently due to overly rich mixture. Is it worth it

Replaced coil packs and plugs in my 1995 tercel but It still runs a little rough what else can I do


Hi Reuben:
Try checking the air filter. If it's plugged up it could cause grief.
How were the plugs? Fouled or black could indicate running rich which would make it rough. Make sure the PCV valve is not gummed up.

My engine stalls and has a rough idle


In 1991 Tercel DLC is probably under the hood. Try to locate little gray (or black) box that has diagnostic written in the cover. Might be located near battery in 91 tercel.
