You may have mixed the plug wires around. If they are correct Check to see if exhaust is coming out of the tailpipe. I suspect a clogged cat converter. If it just started coin this since you worked on the vehicle it most likely is something you have done incorrectly. Whether it be wrong brand/type of sparkplug used to the wrong gap on the plugs.

Most toyotas have a drain plug screw in the transmission pan under the car. Remove the plug and drain old fluid into a waste oil bucket. It should be big enough to hold 3-4 lts. Clean and install the drain plug making sure the copper gasket is intact. Use a funnel and insert it in the transmission dipstick tube to refill. It should take aprox 3.5lt of fluid. If your fluid is really dirty you may want to start the vehicle and shift through the gears then repeat the process.

start by first checking your cars motor and tranny mounts sounds like the transmission is moving back and fourth as you accelerate and shift gears maybe due to a broken mount or more than one, hope that helps try there first.

The front wheels are at a angle putting pressure on the steering lock , rock the steering wheel from side to side while turning the key.

When the car started rolling it locked it up tight. Try putting the car in neutral, put the key in and push against the car in the opposite direction that it rolled while you turn the key and jerk on the steering wheel. You will need to slightly roll the car back to get it unlocked. Get a buddy to help you push the car if you can.

It sounds like the fuse is blown, either the Cig/Radio or the Dome light fuse. See here p10, 13, 122

Looks like the dark well of mysterious things behind my engine, too. A joint inlet would probably be for a heater hose line, probably the inlet line to the heater core, as the outlet from the heater core back to the engine would enter near the engine front near the water pump. Conventionally speaking, that is.

It's all conjecture until you get a good look at it. Judging from the picture, I would be underneath the engine looking up. That means blocks under the side frame or jack stands, don't trust any jack. A flashlight and a small mirror in hand, look for where coolant could pour out. Look for that hose inlet, and check the "freeze plugs"-one may have popped out- these are round castings in the engine block, open to the water jacket around the block where coolant circulates. Good luck, now that you are under the car and dirty, now I don't have to do it.

Open your glove box, remove the little shock on the right side
take your hands on both sides of the glove box and squeeze inwards to collapse the sides of the box at the same time as pulling outwards. The glove box will come out or drop down. Behind there is a small cover approx 2" x7" there is a tab, remove it bt unclipping it and pollen filter is inside. Keep in mind there are some with a tray attached to the opening cover, make sure if this is what you have, put the pollen filter under the clips in the tray as it was or you may hear noise after. Also note, if you have leaves inside they will drop inside the fan blade if your not careful. If this happens you can either vacuume them out or use compressed air in vents to try to blow out or use your fingers, of course with it turned off for safety. I always use fingers to reach in and check anyways for leaves or debris. Good luck

Get a good tuneup making sure the timing is spot on and the plugs are in good shape.

1996 Toyota... | Answered on Feb 05, 2015

Call the local Toyota dealership and make an appointment...

1996 Toyota... | Answered on Feb 05, 2015

You need to offer more information... but basically I will say this:

1. Get a professional tune-up.
2. OR, if you are pretty handy with cars and tools,
a) Replace all the spark plugs with new ones from NGK.
b) Change out the fuel filter
c) Change the air filter
d) Change the oil and oil filter

THEN, take the car to a dealer and have the timing checked...

If the muffler system is the original, there is a slight possibilty that your catalytic converter needs to be replaced, and this will increase your fuel economy also. Lastly, make sure your tires are inflated to proper tire pressure... maybe 32 psi in all tires. Low tire pressure will decrease your fuel economy greatly, make it harder to steer, and will wear out your tires quicker.

You can replace the whole assembly. It could be catered from junk yard, new Toyota parts store or car radio shops. After market antennas are also available which could be put to work after a little effort.
