I have an 1987 toyota supra just did the breaks on and went to test them and moved the car and could stop but i got out of the car and there some red milky looking fluid on the ground that wasnt there...


Old brake fluid can be a dark brownish red color due to contaminates like rust in the system. But the fluid you speak of could be automatic trans fluid. Is your car an automatic? The power steering system in this car also takes automatic trans fluid. Check the fluid levels in the reservoirs. You may have either a auto trans leak or a power steering leak.

1987 Toyota Supra with brake light issues. All light work, but the brake lights don't get brighter. Does it have something to do with that little yellow box in the rear driver side pannel?


Brake light fuse , or burnt out bulb , or switch on brake pedal.
The bulbs have 2 filiments in them , 1 for running lights and 1 for brake lights.

My 87 Supra Turbo Clutch Pedal is sitting about 2 inches off of the floor board. The clutch itself appears to be working, I just hate that it's on the floor. I've put the clutch under heavy load while in...


I believe you have a hydraulic clutch. You may be low on fluid in the master cylinder for the clutch. If it is low, it takes regular DOT3 brake fluid. After you fill it, you might have to drive it a day or two for it to recover.

Engine compatible


Yes. However it is a very expensive swap $5000 to $8000 to do it right. You will need the 1J or 2J engine, transmission, wiring harness, ecu, and alot of other pieces to do the swap. The engine brackets will need to be modified and you will have to upgrade your brakes. This kind of swap requires a good knowledge of the Toyota Supra and the engines. I do not recommend this swap for a beginner. A cheaper way is to take a 7M-GTE and upgrade the internals and turbo.
