Proud new owner of an Old.. AE92R?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Long story short I was sharing a car with my family (Mum) but was gifted a car for free! I guess for Christmas.
Im not a car guy at all but I suppose I might have been bitten buy some kind of bug. I believe its an AE92R - Thats what it says in the owners manual.
On the side of the car there's a faded SRI Limited(?) I dont know if this is a thing or not. 

Down to business though its a 23 year old car (1994- As old as me!) and makes a bit of a rattle when accelerating from 20kmph to 50.
I believe from the small amount research and poking around its the exhaust manifold- It has a 1" crack in it and the cover on top of it is loose.
I'm looking at replacing these so if anyone has done it before please let me know how it went !

CSi Limited probably, which would make it a 4AFE.

 

Post up some photos of the exhaust, it's not hard to change over if you're decent at throwing a spanner.

One tip that I read about and used is brake fluid to penetrate and make undoing air fuel sensors a lot easier. It should also work for undoing the exhaust manifold bolts.

Avoid putting brake fluid all over the place. Just use a high quality penetrating fluid.

      So i have a 04 sportivo corolla, pretty low kms 119,000 kms, it drives nice but i want some more power, have put injen cold air intake in and an exedy heavy duty clutch ( was having some issues with clutch before hand)

      does anyone have some ideas for a bit more response and power without having to turbo or supercharge it?

      Also a mechanic said i should avoid changing 1st and 2nd in 8000kms+ does this sound about right? 
      I don't really thrash this car but when i want to put my foot down i definatly want more response in the lower rev range, and more overall power.

      Thanks guys

      Hi everyone, I am trying to source foglights for a Series 2 Corolla wagon (ZZE122R), the larger plastic ones with the spotlight inserts. Please let me know if you have any for sale or are aware of where they can be found, purchased etc.
      Thanks!

      Hi,
      I’m having difficulties with my car audio in a ZR Levin 2008 model Corolla. I am hearing audio only faintly through my tweeter speakers.. all other sound has stopped. I had someone check the console and wires behind to make sure it is working/swap in another one to see if it made a difference which unfortunately it didn’t. 
      I don’t think the speakers have blown. When the audio cut out the first time, it came on the next time I started the car and then cut out again and hasn’t worked since. 
      I also can’t find anyone on the net in Sydney that offers repairs of the sought? 
      Has anyone experienced this problem before? Any ideas as to how to fix it?

      Hi all,
      I'm in the process of replacing my springs in each corner of my AE93 Corolla. I'm getting a set of new harder standard height springs from Pedders at a very good price. From past experience I've found that the rubber isolators that sit at top & bottom of each spring generally wear and need replacing at spring replacement. My old Peugeot 505 had ones that fell to bits when they were removed. My question is, where do you get them? A search on Google wasn't very helpful, no one seems to sell them. Has anyone else had this issue and if so, what was a workaround that was employed to fix this? I considered getting some thin rubber sheeting from Clark Rubber and cutting it up to suit. Prolly won't work as the seats are an odd shape. Any thoughts on this are appreciated.

      Matt.
