Question about 1993 Toyota Tercel

1 Answer

Hello, I have a 1993 Tercel. The engine starts only if I press all the way down the accelerator when turning the key. This occurs only when I had last stopped the car within the last 20-30 minutes. Otherwise, I have no problem. What can it be? Thank you

    It is a sensor that moves with the throttle,and has at least 3 to 4 wires going to it,and it is in line with the throttle axle,most likely on the opposite side of where the throttle cable attaches to the throttle.Some are exspensive

1993 toyota tercel,idles up and down at a fast constant rate.but runs well otherwise,no engine light on,checked all vaccuum,egr,throttle bod


If it tends to cut off when no gas given but sometimes idles up very fast & then slows back down, probably the idle air control valve. If so, will have to be replaced to fix.

The first thing that you should check is the tension. If it checks out OK you may need to inspect the pulley of the bearing but it is likely just a tension issue.

Why does my 1993 toyota tercel make a knocking noise when i accelerate?


If it is coming from the engine, you probably have a rod knocking. Make sure you have the correct amounst of oil in your engine. Low oil will cause this noise. If it comes from the wheels, you need to pinpoint the location.It could me breaks knocking, tie rods, or your hubs or wheel bearings. Where is the knock coming from?

Ignition key cylinder


You have to have the ignition lock exposed, take the covers off above and below the lock body that holds the cylinder.
Insert the key fully into the keyway, and turn it to ACC. On the ignition lock body, press on the "stop pin", that pokes out of the lack body, above where the cylinder is housed. Press on the "stop-pin", and extract the cylinder. If the key can not be turn ed to ACC, the cylinder will not come out.
Thanks for choosing FixYa. Please let me know if this solves your problem.
