SOURCE: fuse box location 1990 toyota celica

I'm pretty positive your fuse box is actually in the engine compartment (seriously) on top of the driver's side wheel well. Toyota does that for some reason.

What best position timing mark fly wheel plate land criuser 3fe engine to re install distributor


If it rattles,timing is too far advanced.Loosen the distributor bolt,Back timing to fastest idle,and advance it just a little to where the idle is changing slower.Not much tho.Lock the distributor bolt and drive it.If still rattles,do it again till it doesn't rattle.The rattle you speak of is called engine nock,because it's firing ahead of time too much.

I have a 1990 nissan patrol. When i start the car te idle races off to 2300 RPM. The Auto choke seems to be free to move, and if i manually hold the auto choke off it stabalises at 1000 RPM


you can check for vacuum leaks use a short piece of hose like a stethoscope = no . try setting the choke.black and yellow part. loosen the screws and twist it counter clockwise, this should take it out of the high idle mode. the heater in the choke might be bad, ohm it and test for power

Can i adjust the clutch on a 1990 model toyota land criuser petrol ute


there are only two adjustment you can make on a hydraulic clutch set up and that is pedal hight and free play. To adjust pedal hight you rotate pedal stop bolt at top of pedal assembly to adjust the hight. To adjust freeplay you loosen the lock nut at the master cylinder pushrod and turn push rod in or out to the specified freeplay then you tighten everything back up

Replaced distributor in my 89 camry now it seems that the car has a high idle could the timing need to be reset


The timing most certainly needs to be reset. You may find that you are one tooth off when you try to adjust the distributor's position. If you cannot adjust the position to set the timing to the Toyota spec, pull the distributor out and adjust the shaft position 1 tooth.

What is the timing specs for a 97 toyota celica 2.2 engine


Cylinder #1 at top dead center. Mark on the camshaft gear is straight up,as referenced to engine. Note that the engine tilts to the rear so reference the flat line of the head for 12'oclock positioning of cam timing mark.Distributor rotor points to #1 cylinder. If you have crankshaft pulley off, and can see the timing mark there, it should be straight down with #1 at TDC. After reassembly, start engine and jumper E1 and TE1 in the diagnostics box. This gives a smooth steady idle. Use timing light pointed at crankshaft pulley and hooked to #1 cylinder spark plug wire to check. Loosen distributor's 2 mounting bolts enough to turn it. Adjust as necessary. If you are having trouble seeing the notch on the crank pulley, get a white paint pen to increase it's visibility. Reference the rotating pulley mark to the stationary mark on the lower timing belt cover.

I have a 1997 Mazda 626 LX 2.0 Do i have to reset


Not sure, but I think it is preset meaning there is no adjustments. If the mounting holes are not slotted, then there is no adjustment. If they are, check underhood sticker for timing specs and procedures
