Question about 1992 Toyota Tercel

1 Answer

When I turn the key I hear a single, hard clunk

I have a toyota tercel 92 with 120 000 miles on a rebuilt engine (225 000 miles total). When I turn the key, not every single time but most of the time, I hear a single, hard clunk. Could a bad starter connection be responsible?

It sounds like the starter drive gear is worn in one spot. That is why it does not make the clunking noise at everytimer you start it

Head Gasket changed >>> if installed incorrectly or wrong model ?


Head gasket is not your problem when you had the top end of the engine rebuilt it was 2 strong and blew the bottom end out so meaning the cylinder has 3 rings if they leak or on leaks you get wash out in the cylinder and it will burn the oil. the lurching is OK as long as its not a clunking

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

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.
