  1. 1. Check there are no leaks, particularly between idle control valve and throttle body 2. Check the idle control valve is not stuck 3. Check the cable stop hasnt been adjusted so its staying partially open 4. Play with the adjuster screw if its there
  2. hi ams,  have u seen my post 'end of the road',  would you be interested in this or could you give me an idea what I should advertise I for



  3. The problem is with using the AC is that once you start using it, you constantly have to use it to demist the windows. If you stop and let it dry out over a few weeks it clears up. Also cleaning the windows from the inside dramatically reduces how much they mist up
  4. check for water under the spare wheel and also remove the rear seat base and check there is no water under ther
  5. Red or Orange Gen1 Celica

    my ta22 when I stripped all the paint off - had about 20 layers of paint - from memory - it was black - primer - matt black - primer - blue - red - yellow - and a few more primers in between - I used a fair few gallons of starchem to get it all of. I painted it thunder grey - but when it gets painted again I think I will go to the original yellow. Wont take as long to strip it back this time... anyway I would go with the original colour, although it does look nice in red
  6. Selling a car... Test drives?

    i hate selling cars - used to sell a lot years ago - lots of day dreamers and time wasters who will spend half an hour going over the car and test driving it before offering you half the money. last car I sold i was a lot more resistant to test drives and would point out all the faults and be clear that the price was firm - this flushed out a lot of people from turning up and a fair few on test drives - did end up practically giving the car away in the end because my attitude put off a lot of people. Any one who wanted a test drive I took there driving licence from them first - probably wouldn't do much but at least stops them doing a runner if something bad does happen.
  7. Hey ams, hope you're well mate! Sorry to be a pest but do you happen to have a price for a fuel filler pipe for a 2003 plate? Cheers!

  8. No MoT for 40 Year Old Cars

    The argument is usually that they are owned by enthusiasts who keep up with maintenance but in my experience - this can often mean bodged jobs A few years back we had a mk1 mini come in for an mot- the bodywork and interior had been restored but underneath it was completely rotten so much so the tester ticked the dangerous to be on the road box on the bottom of the failure sheet
  9. Celica return?

    Id imagine they will wait until the celica name has a significant cult following so that when it is released it has some impact. I reckon the supra name is at that point now so reckon they will release the talked about BMW/Toyota as a supra, celica is probably another 5-10 years away
  10. Which Gearbox Should I Choose?

    if you have paid for a repair id fit that one
  11. GA61 investment?

    You can still get them for 5-7k when they come from sellers - the problem is a lot of dealers have been picking them up for 4-5k over the last few years and then whacking them for sale at 20k - but they sit for sale for ages
  12. GA61 investment?

    if its in your budget send him a message
  13. GA61 investment?

    Do it - I bought my gen4 as a guy down my street had a brand new one when I was 4 and I dreamed about it ever since the price only seems to go up , 10 years ago - they could be picked up for £100 as they were not desirable - and there were regularly 3 for sale on ebay at any 1 time - same as the gen4s - i bought a gen4 just for the heater matrix and exhaust to go into my other one member Surjit was selling his, but has sold a few of his other cars recently so maybe holding onto it now http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1986-Toyota-Celica-Supra-4-0-V8-MA61-1UZ-Retro-/112503914841?hash=item1a31c18159:g:uLcAAOSw-K9ZD4rA
  14. GA61 investment?

    with a classic car its very rarely an investment, unless you find a bargain, you may break even on it but a lot of the time it will require ongoing maintenance, I also dont believe in just parking them up if you import one and sell it on straight away, then you could turn a profit - but it can be hit and miss as you are buying blind
  15. Snapped Stud :(

    why not measure one on your car
