Where is the freeze plug located at on a 1989 cressida

The freezer plug is located on the left side of the motor under the exhaust manifold towards the back.I think its visible if you take off the metal heat shield that's on the manifold or maybe from the bottom if you lift the car.If its not leaking from there than it could be coming from the back of the motor. There are hoses, a EGR cooling plate and metal water lines on the motor.

Could be the switch or wiring. The resistor can be checked with an ohm meter but they are substantial and not prone to turning up faulty when new.

I have a toyota cressida gli 6 1989 ,has spark and fuel,motor swings but just wont start

Where had you checked spark first? Is the distributor turning? This can be checked by removing the distributor cap and making sure the shaft is turning as the engine cranks. Have you checked that there is spark at the plugs? The ignition coil could be weak and still produce some spark but not enough to start the engine. Be cautious of all rotating belts and pulleys around the engine while working under the hood.

Oil-leak on spark plugs

Oil leaking on the spark plugs is caused by a defective valve cover gasket, remove and replace the valve cover gaskets.

Oil is getting inside distributor cap, have new distributor on it . Its a 1989 Toyota Cressida

check you PCV system you are getting to much crankcase pressure and this is causing the oil in the distributor, if the PCV system is working then suspect to much blow-by from piston rings.

The 7MGE has 2 separate valve covers/gaskets with 8 screws holding each cover that will loosen over time.
Find the phillips screws holding on the covers and retighten snugly by hand do not overtighten!
Pull plug boots/wires by the boot not the wire and use paper towels or rags on a long screwdriver etc to absorb the oil from the wells.
Carefully clean plug boots with spray brake cleaner (avoid spraying anything but the boot) and let dry.
Apply 100% silicone grease to inner boot before reinstalling to allow future removal without damage.
If your engine is particularly dirty you may need to remove the covers first and clean all mating surfaces then reinstall.
