Question about 1996 Toyota Tercel

1996 toyota tercel bucks at 60 Automatic

I have no problems when i drive for the first 10 to 15 min after that over a period of probably 10 min the car decreases in speed and power. As the car heats up it starts to buck at 70-75 mph and decreases as i drive till the point i cant drive over 60 mph without it bucking. Dramatic decrease in acceleration and trouble shifting after it heats up. It will go over 60 mph but i really have to push it but it will only get up to 70 mph max. When the car is hot and if i push it too hard i lose all power until my speed drops back under 65. I took it to a transmission,exhaust,pepboys, and my own usual mechanic not one of them could figure out the problem please if you know anything about this problem let me know.

This sounds like you are having a torque converter clutch system stuck off switch problem which is what makes this happen while you are driving. get someone to run a diagnostic scan on your car and pull up the codes and work on them one at a time. just narrow it down.

I would really have that exhaust checked again, as well as have mechanic put fuel pressure gauge on & drive it up to that speed and see what happens fuel pressure wise. With exhaust, it's not only cat converter that could be causing reduced flow.

My 1996 tercel is stuck in park


HI LOZANO. I AM ALMOST 100% SURE YOUR PROBLEM IS A DEFECTIVE BRAKE LAMP SWITCH. GET SOMEONE TO STAND BEHIND THE CAR WHILE U DEPRESS THE BRAKE. IF NO BRAKE LAMPS PRESENT THAT IS YOUR PROBLEM. ANY LOCAL PART STORE SHOULD HAVE IT FOR 15-30 BUCKS. ITS LOCATED UNDERNEATH THE BRAKE PEDAL

Probably water in the electrics, was it pressure washed or steam cleaned?. Check all electrical junctions, sockets and unions for signs of dampness - including spark plugs. Anything obviously wet, dry the best you can with a cloth and treat everything else with a hair dryer. As the engine gets warm it will tend to dry most everything out anyway.

That car may run forever with check egine light on, but you can visit most any auto parts store to get code read for free.
Often the light refers to oxygen sensor.. Maybe just need plugs or wires etc. Go to Auto Zone ask to check code for free.

Question: my 1997 toyota tercels a/c is not blowing air , but the fan is turning and I can feel the air lightly coming through. What is the solution or troubleshooting situations.


try recharging the a/c system at a garage that does it. It take around 30 mins and normally solves most problems like this. and cost around £30-40 so $50 -60
if still not solve clean the airway in the bulk head and pipe in the dash or the changeing the pollen filter could also help
try these and let me know

Replacing transaxle (automatic) 1996 tercel SE


Hold the engine up with a support cradle, and pull the trans out from the bottom. This is how we do it here. Fast and easy. Pulling the engine is a waste of time.

No spark


This happened to me on my toyota tercel, and I found that the distibutor cap's seal was split, and the cap itself had a small crack in it. I fixed the problem for less than $20 by getting a new cap from advance auto parts.
