Question about 1983 Toyota Cressida

1 Answer

I recently purchased this car 1983 Toyota Cressida. Once getting onto the freeway could barely get up to 45 then 55 then hit 65 and it drop as if no gas pressure. Petal was to the floor. Top the gas gauge on dash was registering that i just put in 6.668 gallons. It seems to be sputtering alot. Finally when trying to get home ended up on surface streets cause couldn't get up to 30-45 would end up going real slooooooooooooow. Trying to see if there is an thought of what to check or what it may be. Sincerely, Soul P.S. Thanking you in advance for the posts that have been or that will be answered.

I recently bought a 2008 Toyota Yaris I love the mileage but on the Freeway at 65-80 mph I get a lot of steering wander. I see there have been issues like the in the Yaris but how do you correct it?

why are you doing 65-80 in probably a 55 zone? slow down. if it is a small car which it probably is, it is not designed for highway speeds especially those

If it uses a carb, the primary jet may smaller so replace this with another jet size 90. I was able to solve the same problem with my car.

No fuel to start it.

Take a gas line off and try to whirl the car over.  If you are getting gas shooting out, then your fuel pump is working.  However, just because you are getting gas out, doesn't mean that it is sufficient pressure.

Fuel filter location for 1983 Cressida

Hello George. Just saw this post and thought I'd answer even though you probably already solved it. I had an 83 with manual tranny--loved that car. I replace the filter twice. It is right under the driver's side floorboard tucked up tight next to the outer frame rail as it inclines up toward the firewall. Hard to work on. David
