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?

    • Time to let her go
      By flyboyagain
      Letting my '02 Celica go. She's needing a lot of work  - disc brakes and pipes and eventually a new clutch - and I'm not longer need a car for getting to work. Any ideas what I should be asking, price-wise? Not looking for a lot but don't particularly want to give the car away.

    • Partially Working Sunroof
      By CelestiaPaw
      Hey guys! New member here so I'm unsure if I'm even posting in the right section lol. 
      Ok so a little history: I own a 2000 Celica ZR which I bought about 6 months ago. It has 190k's on the clock and it broke down on my very first day of owning it. Power steering hose broke off and shot oil in all directions, essentially almost turning my car into a fireball. Obviously, I was absolutely furious. I got the Dealership to tow the car and fix it, completely at their cost of course, which they did, and it's been running great ever since.
      Now to the issue with the sunroof. It used to work fine, but now only one side of the sunroof lifts up just by pressing the button (The driver's side).  This means that if I use my hand to lift up the other side, it will still go back and forth along the tracks, but it won't lift unless I do use my hand. 
      Question is what's broken? It's essentially just the lifting on the passengers side it has an issue with, everything else is in perfect condition... I can probably try to take a picture of the mechanism if you guys need it, but I can only take the picture from just opening the sunroof and sticking my camera as close as possible to where the issue lies, as I don't have a lot of time to take the roof apart.
      Please help!
    • 1992 Celica, door card removal SOLVED
      By johnhe
      Door latch not returning into pocket, have removed plastic pops and various screws, card is still held in area of "door open" light, above door pocket on trailing edge of door.
      Trying to avoid breaking door card, any tips regarding other fastenings appreciated.
      Solution;    There is a screw, behind the inner plastic light unit, that is not visible on removing the red lens (also screws behind latch surround cover.)
      I suspected attempted theft  with implement down window, this was not the case. The (dry) lock was catching and holding the latch open. This may be resolved by removing the top lock screw and applying release /lubricant into the lock without removing door card.
    • 77 Corona Steering Gear
      By RT115
      Years ago I removed the power steering pump from my 1977 Corona HT (RT115).  It was just too much assist, no feel for the road at all.  However, the non-assisted power steering gear is just getting to be too much to live with.  I'd like to change it to a manual (non-power) steering gear but I am just not finding one.  Plenty of rebuilt Power Steering gears around for my car just no manuals.  Does anyone know if the Celica or some other vehicle used the same steering gear?  I do find non-power steering gears for Celica's just not Corona's
