This could be multiple things. Could be plugs, ignition (DLI), injectors, computer, oxygen sensors, cold start sensors, etc. Complicated...worth your money to get it professionally diagnosed or you could end up replacing non-returnable parts that weren't even the problem. If you have an OBD II scanner, start there...though a simple OBD scan is unlikely to solve the mystery.

Blowing blue smoke on stand still when I rev it and engine management light is on mr2 roadsters


Blue smoke indicates the engine is burning oil. as to how the oil is getting into the combustion chamber is the question. It could be as simple you need an Oil change. it could be as bad as the engine is worn past the mechanical ability to contain the oil in its proper ares. (Engine rebuild/ replacement required) First how long has it been since the last oil and filter change? Oil breaks down over time and becomes thin and diluted sometimes with unburnt fuel. Thin oil can get into the combustion chamber. Also you need to look at the miles on the motor. High miles means lots of wear. even lower miles could mean excessive wear depending on its history. Compression test ,dry and wet would be my first check if oil change is not needed. low dry test and a high wet test would indicate worn rings and require rebuild/ replacement. is it only at first start up? or is it all the time? lots of factors involved to give a proper diagnosis.

2003 toyota mr2 exhaust valve


It could also be broken piston rings...but if your not burning or using oil, highly likely. The way to check wether it is piston rings or an exhaust valve is to put some oil(about 2 tablespons) into the effected cyclinder space by removing sparkplug and adding. **you must remove all sparkplug leads at this time to prevent it from "firing". If you then attatch a compression guage to the cyclinder, turn the engine over with the starter motor,noting the reading. If it is "broken rings" the compression will improve dramatically with engine turnover. If it stays the same the culprit is a burnt exhaust valve(s). This should ONLY be done by a competent person. Hope this helps

My mr2 91 whendriving for like 10-15 mins it starts to stick


What is sticking? Gas pedal? If this is so its a common issue with all older 2nd gen MR2's. Once the engine warms up it start to stick and will stay at a higher idle. Not that hard to replace just time consuming. Or it can be the Idle control valve. It is located under the throttle body. you can see the hole that gets air to it if you look inside after taking off the intake piping. Unplug it. Take it off and clean it well with a carb cleaner and put it back on. it will work fine. good luck

Toyota mr2 roadster 2001 engine light on code po141 oxygen sens


bank 1 will be whichever side cylinder 1 of your engine is and bank 2 will be the opposite side. It's named bank 1 and bank 2 so that no matter how the engine is laid out, bank 1 is always on the same side as cylinder 1. I cannot say whether the right hand or the left hand one will be bank 1 as I do not know where your cylinder 1 is. The garage should know

MR2 after 2 mins of starting the smt light comes on.


it sounds like the clutch actuator is worn out.
The clutch actuator has 2 parts:
1. the clutch master cylinder
2. the clutch slave cylinder.

Try to replace the slave cylinder first, and if it is still not solving the problem, then try to replace the clutch master cylinder

Good Luck
