Pull the fuel tank and flush it out with clean fuel also flush the fuel system (replace fuel filter) and install fresh fuel, the injectors will likely be ok, the fuel pump is another question, make sure it is providing pressure.

SOURCE: car wont start when it rains or damp

I also have a 96 camery, and have had problems when it was damp, it would not run well. It did start, but did not run well. You mentioned that you had changed the distributer. If you have not changed the rotor too, that is more than likely your problem. The extreme high voltage that todays cars have makes it easy for the ignition spark to jump a couple of inches. If there is a rust line, a crack with moisture or what ever, the electricity will follow the path of least resistance. If you have any WD-40, spray it around on the rotor, distributer cap, and top of the coil. It should start, as this displaces the water. If you can watch it in the dark, you may see fire jumping around the coil, or distributor cap. I hope this solves your mistry!

SOURCE: 1993 toyota mr2 non turbo

The parking brake is adjusted by a small cable located underneath the plastic shield panels on the underside of the car. The bolts will often snap when removing them. If the parking brake is not working well it may be time to replace the cables as they are prone to stretching and freezing. You can get them through rock auto "www.rockauto.com" or at a toyota dealer. Have someone with a lift change them. It should cost no more than $250 to have it done at a garage. There is also a possibility that the calipers are malfunctioning and not adjusting properly, but this is also... best verified and addressed by a garage.

SOURCE: a/c cooling fan for my 88 mr2 non turbo wont turn

Sounds like the condensor fan relay is "sticking" - you are sure this is the condensor fan, and not the radiator cooling fan? As electric radiator cooling fans often run after the car is turned off - this is normal - If you are sure it is the condensor fan and it is on with the AC off - Id bet it was the relay responsible (versus the AC control unit) - Locate and remove the relay - if you have a comparable one you can substitue (Make 100% sure it uses the same plug and wiring schematic) and try that - if it now works properly you can try to locate one at your parts store....Hope that helps some....DD

SOURCE: HELLO I AM HAVING A WATER PROBLEM ON MY 1993

Sorry to tell you that your problem is YOU have a Head gasket blowen OR a Cracked head, either way you have to remove the head and take it away for Crack testing and surface grind (max 4 thou) no more.
If all ok when done replace with new VRS and refill with coolant (but turn on the heater to hot before filling to remove all AIR

SOURCE: the 1991 mr2 intermittently will not start. you

Sounds like you have a bad one-way check valve in the fuel pump. It is not serviced seperatly. A replacement fuel pump might be your answer.

How do I add transmission oil (std. tranny) on MR2 1991


Turbo (E153) and Non-Turbo (S54) transmissions have the fill bolt on tranny facing the firewall to the cabin. Youll have to jack the rear of the car up.

Drain bolt is near the the driver side axle input.

It is advised to remove filler bolt before drain bolt in case drain gets stripped etc.

Use a longer hose with funnel from the top to fill

I have a toyota mr2 turbo 1992 and have a problem with the check engine light me and my dad did a diagnostic test and found out it was the oxygen sensor, we changed the sensor but the light stayed on.


Have you tried to disconnect the battery for a while, since you changed the Oxygen sensor? The light won't just go out by itself, even though you most likely fixed it. If you clear the code, and it comes back, then you need to dig deeper!

Hi I have just now noticed the MR2.Former Jeep owner but now have fallen for the MR2's 1991-1993 models.Cant drive a stick anymore so what concerns do the automatic transmissions have ? Any differences...


Hello, and welcome to FixYa. Please allow me to assist you.

The MR2 auto transaxles are very reliable units. Just change the ATF with the correct fluid every 30,000 miles. If it has high mileage, 90 + K miles, and is a dirty colour, I'd recommend a transmission flush. This will remove all of the dirty fluid from the system.

The MR2 non-turbo was a fun car, and had very few comon failures.

Try to stay away from the turbo cars, the turbos are know to fail, and the parts and labour to replace the turbo is very expensive.

The MR2s are rather quirky when it comes to servicing the cooling system, you have to bleed the air out. The necessary procedure is in the owner's manual, or online.

Other than those items, the MR2 is a very decent and reliable car. A little noisy, with the engine right behind you, but, that is part of the fun.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance.
