Question about 1988 Toyota Cressida

1 Answer

I have 1991 Toyota Cressida and the battery keeps getting low unless I'm driving or have revved up the engine several times. Basically it seems like the battery will not hold the charge very long or the alternator is not charging the battery well enough. Anyway to tell which one or could it be another?

1991 Cressida How do i know if my alternator is bad?

if the alternator is not charging , there will be a red battery light on the dash
reasons for engine stopping are
broken timing belt/chain, cam/crank position sensor failure
immobilizer activation
ignition control module failure
run the fault codes as some engine lights only light up for urgent problems that require you to stop the engine

1990 cressida over revving. where is idle screw on carby?

It sounds like it may need more than just an adjustment, the mixture screw is on the side down reasonably low close to the base plate, there are lots of different carbs used but the idle screw is usually right by the linkage point.

Does a 1991 toyota cressida have a timing belt or a timing chain? If it is a timing belt, how often does it need to be changed? If it is a timing chain does it need to be replaced at all?

On 1997 & prior models, the timing BELT interval for vehicles operated under conditions of excessive idling & or low speed driving for long distances, replace at 60,000 mile intervals.

1991 cressida, i have to pump on the gas many times before it starts, its killing my battery , i think its the gas sensor but i am not sure.

Hello, welcome to FixYa. Please let us assist you.

We would tend to rule out the 'gas sensor', as most of the sensors do not come into pay until the engine is wamed up.

What you probably have is a bad 'fuel pump check valve'. This device is designed to keep fuel in the fuel lines, at the engin If it leaks off, your fuel is draining out of the fuel lines. The extended cranking that you have is the time that it takes to get the fuel pumped back to the engine.

Replacing the fuel pump will rectify this condition. The check-valve is built into the pump, it cannot be replaced seperatly.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for advice.

How to display 1991 toyota cressida error codes..

since the cressida is obd1 you will need to find the diagnosis plug in the engine bay and short out two terminals and look at the cluster and count the amount of times the check engine light blinks and pay close attention to the pauses. i was able to see what the codes meant because my school has the alldata program..
