Question about Toyota Tercel

1 Answer

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.

Hello Tony.
What you are hearing is the solenoid on the starter motor engaging but the starter not turning on.
When the solenoid is activated it makes the high amperage connection from the battery to the starter motor as well as push the drive into the ring gear.
It could be a bad solenoid or a bad spot on the armature of the starter.
I would recommend you replace the whole assembly.

Oil was changed and check engine light was not reset


This is really easy! Please follow these directions:

Turn the key ON

Look at the odometer, and verify that it displays "ODO" and the total mileage traveled. If it is on "Trip A" or "Trip B", press the black stick next to the odometer to read "ODO", and the total miles traveled.

Turn the key OFF.

Press in, and HOLD the black trip meter reset button, hold it in.
DO not release it.

Turn the key ON; do NOT start the engine

Observe the Odometer display. The total mileage traveled will disappear, and you will see 5 dashes, then 4, then 3, then 2, then 1 dash, and finally, 5 zeros. Then, the total mileage traveled will redisplay.

Release the black trip meter reset stick.

This completes the reset procedure, and the light will be back on in 5,000 miles, to remind you of you next oil change.

Hope this helps, and thanks for choosing FixYa. Happy Thnkasgiving!

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.
