I assume you are referring to the Check Engine light on the dashboard. The ECU (engine management computer) will have logged a fault. A Haynes manual or similar may tell you how to read the error codes that are stored in the ECU. When you have read the codes, it will tell you which engine components are suspect and need checking. As the fuel consumption has gone up noticeably since the light came on, it suggests that the error code will relate to a fuel system fault. For information when the ECU detects that an engine sensor is giving unexpected readings, it overrides (or ignores) the input from that sensor and replaces it with a safe "get you home" value. In doing so, this may lead to more fuel being supplied to the engine than would be the case if the engine sensor was working properly. If you aren't able to read the engine codes yourself, you might prefer to take the car to a garage and they will be able to interrogate the ECU for you.

Cold starting problems from a carbureted engine? Bet if you get your choke adjusted right, it will solve it. If you can screech the tires, this Tercel may be worth saving!
Just get a mechanic friend or pay someone to fix the choke. Doesn't take a long time if you know how. If you've never adjusted or worked on one, it's not so fun. Hard to explain too. The choke plate or flap should be almost closed completely when starting. Soon as engine is cranked or running, the plate should open a small amount more, but still nearly closed. Then as engine warms, the plate should gradually open until it is completely open after about 5-10 minutes. The choke cuts off the air supply to the engine. A cold engine needs a richer gas mixture to run good, and most importantly to start easy.

Check engine light suddenly came on. Car has been running well. What coul dbe the problem. This is a 99 V70 Volvo wagon with 160,000 miles on it. I bought it 2 months ago and trustworthy mechanics told me...


The information below was complied by me, it explains what causes the check engine light to come on and the process of finding the cause.

When the Check Engine light (or Service Engine Soon) is turned on, the systems computer control unit (called the PCM) has sensed a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system. When this happens you will seldom feel the car engine run any different. There are about 200 possible system faults (the gas cap is just one of them) that turn the Check Engine light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen/Oriley and Autozone parts stores (USA only) do this testing for free.

I put in another engine on my Toyota Tercel but it wouldn't started if I put gas in the carb it turn and run for a little while then turn of help I believe it the fuel pump.


Your right, it's the fuel pump. It's not pumping gas into your carb. Hope this helps, James Booth. Also, check the fuel pump fuse before you go into all that work and money to see if its no good. PLEASE RATE THIS!! :))

My 99 Suburban is intermittently starting.....


Unfortunately the fuel pump can still be bad. The pump has a check valve on it that wears out. The pump will continue to run but, struggles to supply enough fuel to start the engine. You can buy a fuel pressure test gauge from Auto Zone or that type of auto parts store and check the pressure. You can purchase a fuel pump from them too.

Toyota Tercel E3?


'91-'94 Tercels have the Single overhead cam 3EE Motor.
'95-'99 Tercels have the dual overhead cam 5E-FE Motor. A much improved engine in my humble opinion.
