    I know someone that had an 80s Toy truck pulled off the road for a frame repair gone bad. Make sure you do an excellent job or bring it to someone who knows what they're doing. Just a tip...

    I...

    Wow, looks all original. Have you considered slapping collector tags on it for cheap insurance?

    I just called the local dealer here and there was no discount on a case. Maybe some dealers are more willing to do a case discount.

    Wow, insurance rates must be killer out in Ontario, same with power bills. I read elsewhere the other day that someone in Ontario is paying $650 a month for power, that's just nuts. Even with my...

    Dang, I didn't know about case lots. I have 3 22RE's so buying a case would be helpful to me. That's 3 years of oil changes given my current driving habits. I'll have to ask my dealer next time,...

    I looked into Hagerty for my collector Celica. They wouldn't give insurance to me because my daily driver is the same age (I have multiple Celicas.) They said if I had a newer vehicle to insure it...

    The A/C amplifier is the A/C controller - it cycles the compressor on and off and has idle cut, etc. The ECU doesn't control it so they added a separate control box. On my 80s Celicas, it's bolted to...

    That depends if it's an interference engine or not. If it is non-interference it would probably crank a lot faster than normal due to valves not being closed on the compression stroke.

    If your engine turns over but does not fire, you need to check the basics... do you have fuel and spark?

    I don't do BookFace or whatever they call it now. I heard it sucks arse anyway for any sort of meaningful conversations.

    If I do ever get around to selling parts it will be on a forum.

    I...

    Oh, no problem. I figured it was sitting in your driveway or something. ;)

    Yep, sounds like a bad ignition switch. The only other thing it could possibly be is the starter relay, or something's...

    I forgot about replying to this thread. On my 22re I didn't have an actual gasket around the thermostat housing, it was a rubber o-ring that went around the thermostat. Unless the 4AGE is different?...

    Remember, just because there's voltage doesn't meant current (amperage) can pass through it. Damaged or corroded wires will let voltage through (at hundredths of an amp, like when you use a...

    Hmm. Next step I'd take is to bypass the ignition switch and apply power to the solenoid directly and see if it cranks. You'd probably have to make a new wire with an eyelet/spade depending on what...

    You moved the battery to the trunk?

    Something to keep in mind... when you lengthen the wires to high-current drain devices like the starter you generally have to increase the thickness of the wire...

    If it will crank using the key with a charger/booster attached but won't without, I'd be checking battery cables and grounds. I had this problem with my Cadillac Coupe DeVille a really long time ago,...

    I had this problem with my 22re in my Celica many years ago.

    I figured out then burping through the radiator fill works best when the front of the car is on ramps, so the radiator fill neck is...

    I can't upload them. It keeps saying invalid file, and it doesn't tell me what's valid. I've tried uploading pdf, png, and jpg.

    I missed that part and looked at the Celica ESM/electrical service manual, and there's no tach input. It is wired to the speed sensor in the instrument cluster which makes sense. On a manual,...

    Yeah, I suspected the cam. It already has a one-way valve (actually, when I got the car it didn't work, found out previous owner put that valve in backwards to the actuator.) I was thinking an actual...

    I don't think you'll be able to use the Celica cruise control computer, even if it plugs in, mostly because it'll be tuned to the power of the engine. I did some minor work to my 22RE in my Celica...
