About Toyota Tercel
Toyota Tercel is a subcompact vehicle manufactured by Toyota from 1978 to 1999. The first Toyota Tercel was introduced in Japan in August 1978, Europe in January 1979 and the United States in 1980 as either a two- or four-door sedan, or as a three-door hatchback. As Toyota's first front-wheel drive vehicle, Tercel had been through five generations.
The fourth generation Toyota Tercel (1990-1994) was introduced in September 1990 as either a 3-door hatchback or as a two- or four-door sedan. In North America, it offered Base coupe, DX coupe, DX sedan and LE sedan trim levels. Tercel was powered by either a 1.5 L 3E-E or a 1.5 L 5E-FE inline 4-cylinder engine and equipped with a 3-speed automatic transmission or 4-speed and 5-speed manual transmissions. In September 1994, Toyota introduced its fifth generation Tercel (L50; 1994-1999) for the 1995 model year. This generation Toyota Tercel not only carried over trim levels from previous generation but also added a new CE trim level. At the same while, it added 1.3 L inline 4-cylinder engines and a new 1.5 L 1N-T turbo inline 4-cylinder diesel engine. As for transmission, it had a new 4-speed automatic transmission.
Toyota Tercel Common Problems & Maintenance Tips
Though Toyota Tercel is only a subcompact car that needs little power, as time passes by, problems still appear on it. Everything could not beat natural law after all. In Tercel, owners put forward these common problems:
First, suspension problem. Toyota Tercel owners complained that the vehicle would tend to tilt to one side and bounce while driving as well as bottom out. At the same time, the handling in Tercel became more and more sluggish, squeaking or rattling noises kept bothering occupants. Actually, you can confirm if your coil springs, coil spring insulator, sway bar bushing or wheel bearing is failing through above signs, and the uneven front tire wear is another obvious symptom.
Second, braking system and engine failure. Braking system can be seen as one of the most important systems in a vehicle. And Toyota Tercel drivers complained that there was brake fluid and corrosion found on the ground as well as Brake Warning Light was activated on. Braking failure like this could be caused by bad hydraulic hose or brake line. As for engine failure, you might as well check your Tercel idle control valve just in case.
The key to keep your Toyota Tercel at the prime condition is to take good care of every auto part that made of it. Seat belt should get replaced after every accident no matter whether the pretensioner is activated or not. Wiper arm is the crucial auto part for well function of wiper blade. If you do not want to encounter any accidents because of not seeing what is happening and then could not response accurately, headlight bulb and fog light bulb should get maintained well.
