European Toyota Corolla 1998 fan and air duct

I own a 1300 4EFE engine, 1998 Toyota Corolla for the european market, no air conditioning system on board.
Actually the fan works correctly but with poor amount of air taken in.
Is there any filter to clean/substitute on the air intake ducts?
Is there anybody owning a scheme or exploited view?

Thanks in advance, Marco

    Many thanks in advance, John, in some sense you are telling me I got nothing to do.

    Considering that at low-half speed the air flow is poor, I thought there was some filtering system somewhere in the middle between the intake and the cockpit.

    But I can easily assure that the fan is working good, both at low-half speed or at full.

    So, no way out except change the car :-D

    Thanks again mate,

Hi marco fango,
I'm familiar with the models that are sold for the Japanese and the African markets...As far as I know the European and Japanese are identical, with some of the refinements left out....We have worked on the dis-assembly and reassembly of a number of these vehicles and I have never seen any filtering equipment on any of them.

What I can suggest, is that you check the operation of the recycle and fresh air control....also make sure that there's nothing blocking the ducting....The fan is very efficient when running at full speed and you should have a good breeze from it....If you have any problem with the lower speeds running the fan, you'll find a wire wound resistor inside the cowling....should be on the left hand side of the center heater unit, at the base....

Hope this is a help

All the best Johngee10

Whistling sound from auto ac ducts

The whistling could be an indication of lack of air flow which will cause the evap coil to frost. The frosting could also be an indication of low refrigerant. As a quick & dirty test, here's something to try. After the system has been off long enough for the coil to completely thaw, set the thermostat for "fan on" & open the door to the air handler (or furnace). If you have to pull hard to get it off & air rushes in thru the door opening, you probably have a return air problem.

Toyota corolla 2003 air conditioning green light blinking and cold air not blowing

You've figured out by now the blinking light means the system has a problem. You'll need to find out if the system is low on freon or if a relay or electrical part is failing. The cooling fan could also be failing to come on, which would make the high side pressure exceed the limit and shut down the system.

How can I adjust my Toyota Tercel'98 FM radio for European frequencies. It only tunes the Odd (USA) frequency channels like 89.1, 89.3, 89.5 etc

You will have to replace the radio with a European radio to pick up Euripean frequencies. You have a USA radio in your car and it will have to be replaced.

Check for collapsing (soft) coolant hose on intake side of waterpump at engine above idle rpm.
Check condition of system pressure cap.
Check operation of cooling fan/s- fan temperature sensor switch on engine may be faulty.
Check system has correct fill of coolant and no air locks exist when re-filling- bleed off any airlocks as may be necessary.
Check radiator coolant core not blocked.
