I'm told there isn't even a Haynes Manual on MR-2s.  Toyota is tight with sharing the info, and keeps it all on computer or microfische at the dealers.  However, there are some good detail breakdowns on the web if you search "MR-2 diagrams" and the like.

When i`m starting my mr2 sc 88 it`s like if it missing fire or gas. And it`s always when it`s cold. It`s poppopoping than finaly the gas arrive and it`s o.k.

have you checked the engine coolant temp sensor to make sure it is working right? the sensor controls fuel to the injectors until closed loop has been reached then the o2 sensor takes over fuel control.

Which shield? Do you have a pic? If its the "Diaper" that hangs off the rear bumper, you should be ok. I took mine off when I first bought the car, has no effect whatsoever. If its a heat shield that's around the exhaust, it also has no effect, maybe a slight performance decrease due to higher engine bay temps.

Two things... check your oxygen sensor - or just replace it. Have you ever had the check engine light come on while the cruise is on at highway speed? jumper the error check terminals and see if you have any check engine codes showing. Also, see if someone removed the catalytic converter - or get a new one.

That is a very hard part to source. Have you tried the forum? it is the best place to look. I have an 85 mr2 with black interior. Definitely a lot harder with 88 and 89 as there were alot fewer made those years.

Can not find starter in my 1988 Toyota MR2

Look under the vehicle, between the engine & the transmission. You can't see it from on top.
