My1994 toyota tercel stalls when warm


Could be bad electrical part failing as it gets hot. Coils, ignition modules, crank/cam sensors all can do this. Quite common. Check if you have spark to plugs when it fails. If not, start testing parts. Problem is, they will cool and then test ok so this can be hard to find. Start with ignition module which parts stores often test for free. Run test several times to heat the unit up.

How to prime carburetor on 1988 Toyota tercel 1bbl


Normally, you wouldn't need to do this to get the engine started. If you have a mechanical fuel pump ion the engine, just cranking the engine over should cause the pump to push gas into the carburetor. And if an electric pump, it should come on with the key in on.

But to prime, pour a small amount of gas down the throat of the carb, and crank. As the engine fires and runs, the pump should begin working and pushing fuel into the carb.

1994 tercel overheated now wont start


I answered this with a lengthy explanation.. about blowing your head gasket do not run a car when it over heats it will cost you a engine.. wait until it cools down to add water and most likely you need a new thermostat or you already have a blown head gasket .. this is much cheaper then an engine do not drive car when HOT.

1989 Toyota Tercel 5 speed stick trouble starting


sounds like your clutch safety switch, the switch that keeps the vehicle from starting unless clutch pedal is depressed, is not working.. the correct thing to do would be to buy a new one.. on the other hand cutting the wires and wiring them together will work just fine.. but keep in mind the vehicle will then start in gear with out pushing in the clutch pedal so use extra precaution when starting if you decide to take this route.. hope i could help
