Question about 1982 Toyota Toyota Cressida

Open Question

I have a toyota ractis, year 2007 and with a 13 petrol engine ( japan import). I have an intermitint fault. Sometimes when i am parking or in a steady position and i have to turn the steering at its maximum to the left or to the right position, at a point the steering will become very hard to rotate/locked. In otherwords it seems that at that particular moment the power steering is not working. When i turn the ignition key off and starts the engine again (RESET), evrything is ok and the power steering resumes its function as normal. Last time that i had this fault i noticed that before the fault occurred the lights on the dashboard start to flicker and the sound on my radio stopped for one second. During this fault no alarms before or after were seen on the dashboard. I suspect that i have a fault in the dc motor for power steering or in its control electronics. Can i have any help or other suggestions for what is causing this type of fault and how can i make any testing especially because its an intermitint fault? Thanks

SOURCE: Toyota RAV 4 1.8 A - engine doesn't start after battery exchange

may sound like a dumb question but you didnt by chance hook up the battery or jumpstart the car with polarity reversed by accident at some point during this process? i would check all the underhood main fuses and interior fuses as well, what is the condition of the battery post clamps? if they are badly corroded be sure to clean them very well and wash them with a baking soda and water solution im thinking one of the cables or smaller wires that hook up at the battery is broken or possibly some freak accident happend and the computers need to be flashed at a dealer. either way i wish you luck please rate -jeff

SOURCE: automatic engine immobilizer wo'nt reset

The immobilizer does not "lock" the ignition, it does not energize the fuel injection relay. What you have is a "locked" steering column. Put the key in the ignition, and pull/turn the steering wheel HARD left or right, whilst turning the key to on or start. Do BOTH at the same time.The action of you pulling on the steering wheel will unlock the steering column.

SOURCE: 1999 Toyota Camary, steering wheel locked

It happened to me. It is a common problem in older Camrys and Hondas. The cars are so reliable that the key gets worn down after all these years. Get a the dealership to order a new key in. The can use the cars ID number. The old key can't disengage the steering wheel locking mechanism in order to start the car.

SOURCE: Radio goes out when start engine. Loses all settings.

Your radio might be shorting out. I would make sure the ground wire hasn't come off.

Your carb may need cleaning. I had the same problem with my Astra. If not then there is too much air getting into the engine.

What motors will fit a 1997 Toyota Camry? Is there another year that I can interchange with. I am having trouble finding a motor for this year and so i was wondering what other year would work.. Thanks...


There are actually two choices as far as I remember, a 2.2 L petrol, and a 3.0L V6 petrol, but I might be even considering the 2.2 Turbo Diesel that has been mounted in some of the 1997-2001 models.Everything depends on the type of the body you have as there were two. One oval (USA, Canada, Europe) and square-box type (Japan).
