1985 Cressida 5M GE will not start. Died this past winter on a very cold day, and haven't been able to get it going since. Different backyard mechanics, and a few real mechainic have tried to figure...

The first thing to do is get the compression checked. I don't know how many miles you have on it but the car is 26 years old and there is bound to be a certain amount of wear. Excessive wear in the engine would also cause it to not start or be hard to start especially in cold weather. The closest figures I have are for an 83 5M-E engine which was in your model that year. The number is 156 lbs for compression. Compare this with what you get and you may find your problem.

If the mechanic thinks your compression is acceptable then you should investigate the timing for sure. An engine needs gas and spark at the proper time to work, so if you are getting the first 2 the problem has to be the third. It's quite possible that a worn timing belt could have jumped a tooth or two on a very cold day. Hope this helps.

My 1987 Toyota Cressida jerks when stopped at lights and accelerates slowly.

sounds like your ignition timing is REALLY REALLY late, should be 10 degrees BTDC. also check the air filter as this could cause poor acceleration. those 5M-GE/7M-GE engines also want premium gas (91 pump octane or better) they run horribly on lower grade gasolines.

Will a broken timing belt on an 83 toyota celica

The Toyota Celica Supra has the 5M-GE engine which is NON-interference motor. The worst a broken belt will do is leave you stranded.

I need to know how to install a distributor in a 1986 toyota cressida with a 5m-ge motor the engine is special order item and i do not have enough money to get one . Can you explain to me how to do this?...

Turn your engine to number one compression stroke. The best way is to plug the spark plug hole with your finger, and then touch the key a little bit at a time, until it blows your finger out.The piston will be at the top, and valves will be closed. Then center your timing mark on the crank so it's on 0 on the guide. (it should be almost there, but you'll have to wiggle it a bit). Then, with the cap off your distributor, push it in so the rotor is going to be hitting in the same place as #1 on your distibutor cap. Install your cap and it should start. If not, move the distibutor slightly until it does. Adjust timing, and you're done.
