Question about 1993 Toyota Tercel

1 Answer

My car is also shaking & sputtering, sometimes dies,

But only when it's in gear.  Found the problem- it's a little box on the driver's side by the windshield that has something to do with the sensor hoses, but I can't find out what it's called!  None of the guys at the auto parts store can find it either.  What is it so I can get it fixed?  :)

If the little box has two vacuum hoses connected and one wire plug then its your A/C idle up VSV. Before you replace it remove the wire plug and put 12Volts to one and Ground to the other you should hear the valve move inside. Also when there is no power to it you shouldn't be able to blow through the vacuum lines. When its powered you should be able to blow air through it.

2000 CHEVY TRACKER **** AND SPUTTER IN LOWER GEARS. WHITE SMOKE FROM EXHAUST, BAD SMELL UNDER LOAD.


bad shift solenoid in transmission ,and white smoke is because you need head gasket,it is broken and you are mixing fuel with coolant,that will cause bad cat converter soon,and your engine will die soon due oil and water mix ,will kill your crank shaft and cam shaft bearing,(check your oil see if it look like milk shake,that is very bad)

DOING A TUNE UP WILL TELL YOU IF YOU HAVE MINOR ENGINE PROBLEMS OR MAJOR ENGINE PROBLEMS. IF YOU BOUGHT CAR THAT A LEMON YOU CAN TAKE BACK IT. AFTER SO MANY DAYS.

Blown Fuses - Dead 1998 Ford Escort


Try changing the fuel filter first we always change them when servicing the fuel pump anyway,its easy and cheap,if that doesnt solve the problem you will have to perform an amperage draw test on the fuel pump to insure your not replacing a good pump. Check the fuel pump relay and inertia switch and wiring also.Although possible its unlikley the fuel pump would blow a fuse consistantly without displaying any driveability problems.There may also be another component running off the fuel pump fuse have your mechanic pull a wiring diagram to find out. Good hunting keep me informed
