    I was originally trying to fix a problem where my oil pressure gauge wasn’t working but found this one wire next to the cooling fan (yellow with black stripe) and have no idea where it goes. ( this is in a 1988 mr2 with a 4age)

    The parts drawing shows the bolts attaching the bell housing to the 1986 4AGE engine block. But when we tried re-attaching the two together we found that our bolts were too short. So I went to Toyota and still not much clarification. The bolt descriptions give me the lengths but not the exact...

    Hey everyone! I recently acquired an 88 AW11 MR2 in a trade for my old Subaru GC8. It is a T bar automatic with 125k original miles,and with very little rust which is a great find for someone like me in the north east. In the last few months of ownership, I have fallen in love with this car and...

    This vacuum pipe assembly is for my 1987 N/A AW11. I will be testing this for leaks but it would be nice to get a NEW unit. Have a corrosion problem in search of a solution. Either I need a source for a replacement or a method to refurbish this vacuum pipe assembly. Any suggestions out there...

    I recently had my engine rebuilt. The timing belt was replaced. The old timing belt roller has a long needle-like pin sticking forward from the bolt center. What is this for ? Does it absolutely have to be replaced with the exact same style ? I have seen other 4 AGE engine timing belt youtube...

    So I'm at the final stage of my engine overhaul which is to take the intake off to swap my harness and also change the gaskets. Now when I took off the intake there was one of the TVIS butterfly valves/discs lightly lodged in the intake tube for cylinder 1 (closest to the timing side). There are...

    This problem has been plaguing my car since the day I bought it. little back story, I purchased my car (1985 MR2 mk1A) after it had sat for nearly 26 years, the day I bought the car I was the first to roll it out of the garage since it had been last parked in the fall of 1994, and at that moment...

    Hey guys, I pulled my 3 rib 4age to replace the seals and clean it up. While I had it out I came across a 7 rib with better compression and decided to use it. I now have the 7 rib resealed and in the car and everything connected as it should be. I have gone through the BGB to try and trouble...

    Ok so just did a compression test on my 86 mr2 and all 4 cylinders are low on compression, while 3 of the cylinders are above the minimum 128psi one cylinder is below and they aren't with 14psi of eachother as the Haynes manual recommends. Adding oil while doing the compression test adds some...

    I am wrapping up a super budget build on a 7 rib 4age. I was wondering if anyone has ever tried to use the automatic trans cooler as a w2a intercooler. If you run air through the coolant side and water through the oil side, then use the a/c condenser as a HE. I'm not around the car and had an...

    helping a buddy with his swap, the engine depot didnt include the afm and pigtail is missing as well. Is anyone has one that’d be sweet!

    sup bro’s. My buddy has an aw11 and I talked him into doing a silvertop swap. He had his mechanic do the install (put engine in car, basically just the heavy lifting as I have my own projects at my house). Says his mechanic doesn’t know how to do the wiring so it’s coming to me to finish it...

    So I’m stuck and I can’t find any threads I’m probably just not looking hard enough, but I’m wondering if I should just pull my 4age out and build it up better or swap it out for something that will make a lot more power. And I’m not wanting to put a Honda engine in it, I want to keep it Toyota...

    So I recently acquired a 1986 Toyota MR2 AW11 with a 4AGE engine. It's in very good condition buy with a car that's 34 years old, I still need to replace some exterior and interior parts. I was wondering if you guys had any trusted websites where I could buy original or replica parts. I need...
  16. General MK1 - FAQ
    So recently I bought myself a 1986 Toyota MR2 AW11 and it was in pretty good condition. While I was going through the car's every feature, button, lever, etc. I came across an unmarked lever in front of the fuel door lever. I pulled on it and it made a sound that I couldn't locate. I looked...

    Hello, Ive got a problem with a USDM 85 AW11. The car doesnt seem to idle when cold. it hunts when hot. it was like this after timing belt replacement, I confirmed the timing was correct. I can keep the car running by blipping the throttle when cold. but it then chokes at around 500-600rpm. when...

    This is actually for an ae86, but I figured I could ask here as well since the AW11 shares the same motor. I'm curious about how far I could push a n/a 4age on pump gas within the restrictions of Oregon's emissions laws (220ppm Hydrocarbon & 1.0% Carbon Monoxide). I'd like to maintain some...

    Hi guys, I'm considering doing a MK1.5 build, and wondering what I might be able to get if I sell my current engine, which is a 20V blacktop, that I had rebuilt by a shop. It only has 40,000kms on it since the rebuild, summer driven only, stored in heated garage in the winters. Can anyone guess...
