Question about 1996 Toyota Tercel
I figure that you have got a whole lot of issues to solve. In the first place make a record of the maintenance to be done on your dear car with a systematic approach. There is a time frame as well as the running mileage maintenace that keeps your car fully fit for all occassions. Now since you thought of changing all the filters in one go-- as I see overdue- there is no point now to point the finger at anyone. But it could have happened earlier with the owner to have plugged in a filter maybe with a cross thread. But now sice they had tried to put in the filter- I hope the Toyota OE- it might have gone in cross and resulted in damaging the thread on the engine block. Now we get serious , if the block has a cross thread we need to rethread first trying if possible without removing the engine. hence you need the assistance of a machine shop for thread cutting/ shaping. Sometimes it may not work well and you will need to take the engine block out to do a good job. but you can also mend with using good metal paste but it may not be good for the next owner. Since you have clocked so much it will be good to also change your transmission oil, check your brakes fuel pumps and suspension. You can do more miles provided you are happy with the performance. Good day
