1986 Tercel 4wd. Car will keep running for a bit after I turn it off


If it chugs or sounds like a diesel, the idle speed could be too high, or you could have an excessive amount of carbon build up in the engine.

Thinking about buying a 1986 Toyota Tersel


I have known the tercel to go easily 250K. If the price is right it is a no brainer. Usually the rust wins before engine failure. Those late model 80's Tercels consistently got over 35mpg.

Please leave me good feedback if you think this helped.

1986 toyota tercel won't idle after the engine warms up.


vacuum leaks in these old cars are frequent you need the vacuum lines replaced they become porous and are extensive, also the timing must be tweaked to 10 degrees instead of the recomended 5 degrees as long as the car does not ping going up hills this is a essential modification to OEM recommendations I own a 1985 4wd station wagon replace the O2 sensor 35 bucks rockauto.com

Call a local Wrecking yard and ask them what the interchange is. I know there are some ratio differences between the years. And you have to match the front and rear tooth for tooth.

1984 Toyota tercel wagon


Although this isn"t a proper fix, and may affect emissions, I ran accross this problem on a friend's 87 2wd wagon.

There is a dashpot that controls a lever the Idle set screw is on, I am guessing it is a decel valve that closes butterfly when coasting in gear. I never looked at a manual to figure out what controls the vacuum valve that is on the passenger side of the engine compartment, but if you disconect the vacuum line and plug it that lever will not back off and idle will remain where you set it with the adjustment screw.

Make sure the engine is warmed up and not on a fast idle cam before adjusting idle.

The car is a 5 speed, I not sure if automatic cars are the same.

The car idles fine now and still run's great and gets 37+ MPG with 240000 miles!

If you want to fix it properly you would have to diagnose why that dashpot is being actuated at idle
