How to change a distributor on a 1990 toyota tercel and maybe timing chain

I doubt you machine has a timing chain, it will be a belt. To replace a timing chain means just about a full engine tear down. To replace the distributor. Place the engine at TDC and mark the position of the distributor rotor, also line a fixed mark on the old distributor with a position on the engine. Do not turn the engine at all. Remove the old distributor and install the new one aligning the body marks and ensuring that the rotor is pointing in exactly the same position. Once all the wires are back and the cap is replaced it should hardly be necessary to re-time the engine.

I have a 1988 toyota tercel and stays acelerated all the time

Replace throttle cable. I had the same problem and when I inspected the cable I found frayed pieces of cable at the carburetor, but if you are not handy and cannot get under the dash easily then I would suggest you have a tech do it for you.

The release cable is broken and need to get under the hood. How do I release the latch with out the cable. 97' Toyota Tercel.

Take the cable that is broken and hold it with pliers. use another pair of pliers to pull the inner cable. If you can't get to the inner one go back on the main cable a little ways and cut into the out part and strip away like you would a wire.

If that does not work, you will have to remove the grill and try to get up in there. It is not fun.

Hope this helps

Replaced negative battery cable with new, what size gage of cable shall i need. cable burned up day after installation. could there a be ground problem. Notice that fuse is located next to battery, is this...

Make sure all battery connections are properly clean. Clean the spot where the ground cable attaches to the body. If its pitted and burn. Find another solid body ground. You can use a 1 gauge ground wire or proper battery ground cable from auto store. After installation, have someone cranks car and you feel wire for excess temperature. There might be a starter problem. Be careful not to burn yourself.

Fuel problem

first i would cover the basics. change the fuel filter, next change the spark plugs, careful this car takes special spark plugs. probably have to get from toyota. next clean the throttle body, pull air nozzle off and open the butterfly so you can spray throttle body cleaner in their and clean with toothbrush. also dont be alarmed after cleaning the throttle body and changing the fuel filter it will be hard starting, hold the gas pedal half way.

Broken camry

Had a similar problem on a 1992 tercel. Hard to find but when checking sparkplugs accidentally found that one of the spark plug cables was internally damaged. Thus the full electrical energy was not being delivered to the spark plug. Upon replacing the distributor cap with all the sparkplug cables, the engine picked up idle speed and run smooth again.
