  1. Electrical Help!

    Normally Aspirated
    Well, then, lets read out the fault codes. A properly functioning ECU will store a fault code associated with the CEL.
  2. '91 5SFE no-start situation [complex issue, no mods]

    Normally Aspirated
    The usual way to check for jumped timing is to take off the timing cover and look at the marks on the gears. Never heard of this method before.
  3. Gen4 swap no crank/start

    3SGTE Turbo
    The ECU is not the problem. It is not involved in cranking. Is your car originally a manual or automatic? If it is manual, then maybe you are not getting the start signal to the starter relay. I can't tell you any more, because I have no idea what wiring you have changed in the swap. If it...
  4. '91 5SFE no-start situation [complex issue, no mods]

    Normally Aspirated
    That is correct. They can leak, but they can also dry out. They have both a working life and a shelf life.
  5. Electrical Help!

    Normally Aspirated
    So, if you let it idle, it never corrects itself? I would try a different ECU. Even though it does not seem likely, the ECU does have unlimited modes of failure.
  6. '91 5SFE no-start situation [complex issue, no mods]

    Normally Aspirated
    Not everything has to be connected. Your current problem could be unrelated to the previous one. The belt could also have skipped twice. That is not improbable if the tensioning is wrong to begin with.
  7. iso: CV Axle for right rear (passenger side) 1992 MR2 Turbo

    General MK1 - FAQ
    Wrong section. Try posting in the MK2 section.
  8. N/A starting issue

    MKII, 90-99 NA & Turbo
    One cause of excess cranking for a cold engine is a leaky check valve at the fuel pump. Then you will have to reprime the fuel system each time.
  9. T-top 92 mr2 lock problem

    General MR2 Discussion
    Spray some WD40 into the lock cylinder. That is the easiest way to free up a frozen lock.
  10. MR2

    General MR2 Discussion
    These cars have a rear engine and hence a rear weight bias. That means the car will turn in very quickly, and it may take more time to straighten it out again. The quick steering response of the chassis can trick you into committing to a line that you cannot follow all the way through. I...
  11. Dome lights not working when door is open???

    MKII, 90-99 NA & Turbo
    I will guess that one of the contacts inside the dome light assembly has broken. That would happen all the time with the MK1 dome lights. The contacts were riveted, and eventually the rivets would crack. I would just drill the rivet out and replace with a #2 screw.
  12. tires for rain (not autoX, but commuting)

    Daily Care & General Maintenance
    205/50-16 will put the speedo dead on. That is what I use. Speedos are calibrated to read about 2% high with OE tires. I agree that this could be very dangerous. I commented further on the other board.
  13. Car runs like ass when cold for around 10 minutes

    MKI, 84-89 NA & SC
    Do you still have the AFM fault? Then keep looking. Either there is a wiring fault, or all of the AFMs are defective.
  14. Car won't start

    General MR2 Discussion
    It would help if you told us which car you have. Did you check power feed to the ignition and ECU? For example, there will be fuses. Are there any fault codes? Read them out. That might tell you directly what is broken.
  15. Intercooler or charge cooler?! Help me

    MKII, 90-99 NA & Turbo
    Unless you are using an ice canister, the only benefit of an air to water intercooler is access to the forced air stream at the front of the car. It will be impossible to match that with any rear mounted air to air unit without a very ostentatious air scoop. People have done that: Mounted...
  16. Mr2 repair manual

    MKII, 90-99 NA & Turbo
    Pretty much. The big changes were between 85-86 and 87-89. You would also want to go to the MK1 section, which covers the 85-89 cars specifically
  17. Intermittent Engine Vibration & Loss of Power

    3SGTE Turbo
    There is really no way to diagnose high voltage ignition problems except replacement of key components with new. This includes plugs, wires, cap, and rotor. This is because microscopic cracks in the insulation can limit the ignition voltage, and you need full voltage to achieve spark when you...
  18. Car runs like ass when cold for around 10 minutes

    MKI, 84-89 NA & SC
    Fix the AFM. You are severely overthinking this problem. Don't worry about what it feels like or what you imagine until you deal with the known problem. No engine will run correctly without proper air measurement.
  19. MR2 NA SW20 temperature issues

    General MR2 Discussion
    Sounds like bad thermostat.
  20. Need help with 88SC AC

    MKI, 84-89 NA & SC
    I suppose that it could, since the AC amplifier is the brain. However, I would work the mechanical causes first. Sorry, I am not an AC specialist. I am just a repository for random information.
