Toyota Cressida Rx80

1 post in this topic

HI Everyone

I own a 1991 Toyota Cressida RX80

Engine 22R carburated

Displacement 2376cc

I Just had my cylinder head worked , due to overheating . I just lost track of the radiator refrigerant , and i didnt put any water in it either for like 3 week. Consequently , one day the engine was running as usual and suddenly it vibrated very strongly and shut off, when i brake and reached idle speed. so I thought i had ran out of gas , but then the car started , it seemed to fade everytime in lowered the gas flux, and lowered speed, and kept shutting off. Then i felt a strange smell of somethign burning , thats when i decided to stop the cressida and step outside. to check the engine. It was very hot , and smeel was awful. At first i thought it was the automatic transmission , because i had recenlty changed and filled the transmision fluid , but it turned out to be the engine. The mechanic told me one cylinder didnt have the right compression rate , it barely reached 100 psi , the other cylinder were at 175 psi. So after taking apart the engine , one of the exhaust valves was crooked and damage, due to the high temperature , and some orings and locks had to be replaces. bbut most important change was the machining of the cylinder head valve seats.

my question is :

Will the displacement be affected or reduced (2376cc) thus the power (110HP) due to the machining of the cylinder head?

      Rare UK manual model with low mileage (123K) for its age (1996).
      Mechanically sound - a great and reliable runner, superb for eating up the miles on the motorways. Comes with 5 spoke alloys, power steering, electric windows and mirrors, CD player, ABS, front fog lamps, driver-adjustable headlamps and leather upholstery, which is showing signs of wear on the driver's side.
      Power hood is a little tatty but still goes up and down. Apart from that it's all in VGC.  Includes tonneau cover for hood when down.
      A beautiful classic convertible - get cruising this summer!

      I know I have a problem with the key fob battery at the moment but the central lock button on the centre of the dash locks but doesn't unlock the car. Is there a switch problem or is this a fob problem? at the moment the fob locks but doesn't unlock and when i use the central locking keep I've got to move the child locks on the door and even then the passenger one doesn't work with that. I assume on the passenger I need a new actuator.
      Anyone know a fix to this?

      1999 in Brilliant red. Only covered 27200 miles with full service history, mainly from main dealer. A huge file full of invoices and past MOTs. This car has always been kept garaged and used as a second car. I have owned her for a year and completed some work to bring her up to showroom condition. Everything works as it should do. Great interior with the leather in fine condition with no signs of wear and tear. Totally original. The car is up for £7295 in Auto trader and I'm offering a 5% discount for being a toyota owners club member so the price you would get this beauty for is £6931 
      i will be selling her with 12 months MOT and a full service.
      Treat yourself to the best uk example of this much cherished vehicle
