  1. Happy Birthday x3man!

  2. Hey guys! As you may know I have Corolla e9 liftback 2e engine. I have several questions about the topic: What else do I need exclude the stripped engine? (wires, engine control?) Does it straight fit in the engine bay or I have to make some changes to the mounting? Does my 2e gearbox 5 gears manual can fit this engine? Does my 2e drive shafts fit this engine? If someone done this before me please tell me more about the whole swap and what fits from the 2e so I can decide do I realy can afford to do the swap. I've found 4A-FE stripped engine, no engine control no wires, only engine for around 110 pounds which is around half of my month payment of my daily job :D Yeah I live in Bulgaria where this car is rare and everyone who is selling parts for it, gives high prices (even second hand). Thanks in advance guys and sorry if this question is already asked! :)
  3. So, 45mm pipe from the Catalyst to the muffler and it'll be ok? I mean if it's as you say I have to gain power, because right now it's 63mm pipe there :>
  4. I totally forgot to put the engine code It's 2E (1,295 cc, 12 valve, carb,). And I don't know why but mine is 63mm.. Maybe the owner before me made some "Bulgarization" on the car.. (That's what we call people who use altered parts from other brand car.)
  5. Hi there guys! I'm planning to change my exhaust pipe that is after the catalyst and before the muffler because it's very rusty. So I've managed to measure the pipe diameter which is 63mm. My question is: Can I remove my catalyst and just put there a 63mm stainless pipe and put sport muffler length 420mm, connection 63mm. Is there going to be any power loss or something bad for the engine or it's good to do thingy :> Thanks in advance. :) P.S. I'll update my topic about the vacuum piping with the exact vacuum piping scheme as soon as I have some time, which I've managed to sort out, and the engine is running smooth, fuel consumption is now lower and it regain some power!
  6. Okey.. So I've followed the lines and everything goes well until I get to the FILTER which I have highlighted on the attached image.. There are some pipes that are bypassed.. And I can't see which pipe goes where on the diagram.. Right now I'm drawing myself a diagram which I can use but this pipe cluster is a life mystery :D I'll continue my work when I have time because I'm on twelve hours shifts and I can't be with my car :(
  7. Hey guys :) Today I've started checking the vacuum hoses (GREAT WEATHER) but there are two diagrams that I have for the 2E engine and ofc the complicated one was for mine piping.. The problem now is that there is a cluster of pipes which I can't follow on the diagram and I'm 100% sure that some hoses are mixed up and others are not connected.. So I'll attach the diagram here and it'll be great if you can help me resolve it somehow.. If you have a simple diagram where the cluster is shown closely I'll be very grateful.. And again the engine is 2E carb from 1987.. Thanks in advance!
  8. Check where did you connect the head unit.. Usually the producer provides three kind of 12V supply for the head unit.. One of them is with the key turned to contact, which is supply without memory for the head unit. The second one is with the key turned to contact but with memory supply for the head unit. And the third one is with constant supply for the head unit without relying on anything.. If you connected the head unit to any other 12V supply which is not provided for the head unit you could get such problems as blown fuses burned supply installation or lack of supply power for all the consumers.. Don't underestimate the head unit consume power.. Check if you accident disconnected something wile connecting your head unit.. Good luck and best regards ;)
  9. When you have swapped the plate bulbs, did both not worked on the problem socket? It could be bad ground.. If you have voltmeter check for 12V in the problem sockets.. I'll try to find scheme for the installation.. Good luck ;)
  10. When I've changed my head unit I got a problem similar to yours but my clock didn't work. So I've checked the fuses under the hood and actually I didn't found a blown one.. After a second check I realized that one of them was blown but it was hard to notice.. So I suggest you to look closely all of the fuses under the hood. On the cap or under, which protects the fuses is a scheme of "which fuse is for what". Check them again.. The plate lights are on the same fuse so I guess there was an short circuit caused wile changing the head unit and maybe the bulbs got blown.. Try to swap the plate light bulbs this will tell you where the problem is :) Be careful I've blown myself couple of plate light bulbs while changing them.. Give us feedback after that :)
  11. I'm so excited right now, but I'm at work and I can't do anything on the car I hope tomorrow will be sunny day so I can do something :P So here are some pictures of my CoYota, I don't really have a lot of pictures but I'm planning to do some bodywork and stuff when I save some money and I'll make more pictures.
  12. Hey guys! I've made deep research about my problem and I found out that the translation for distributor cap degrees is actually ignition timing So I found some topics in the forum and realize that the problem with fuel consumption can be from the vacuum system or if I have to quote: So I've search trough toyodiy and I found vacuum piping scheme The pipes which are connected to the Distributor vacuum advancer, are not connected at all.. So I'm going to check all my vacuum connections and fix if something is wrong connected or not connected and I'll keep you guys in touch B) So, have a nice day guys! Best regards, Philip.
  13. Hi there guys! I got this problem with my rolla and I'm sorry if there is already topic about it but I search it trough the forum but I couldn't find it.. :( So I got Corolla e9 Liftback 1987 1.3 12v carb. It's an awesome car, but the previous owner put LPG system because it's cheaper in Bulgaria to drive on LPG than Petrol. When the car is cold it keeps very low RPM and when its hot the RPM is HIGH I guess 1500 when idle (I don't have RPM meter in the dash :( ) This phenomenon is on LPG and Petrol which leads to bigger fuel consumption. I decided to drive the car only on Petrol so I have returned the airways to their original state (they have putted a sponge in the way so It could get little air for the LPG and there were an vacuum pipe disconnected which is over the air filter cover which when it's connected on LPG the car lose power.) The RPM didn't change it's state and the car keeps it's high consumption which is around 15-16/100km. Now when it's winter in cold state, the car is halting and smells like petrol from the exhaust even when it get's it work temperature. I guess it has rich fuel mixture (gets more fuel than air). I have readed that when the car gets louder from the valves they need some alignment. And something about degrees of the distributor cap. I have planned to change the spark plugs, align the valves, and correct do distributor cap degrees. (I'm not going to align the valves and the distributor cap degrees by myslef) Can you tell me which are the best brand spark plugs, and the distributor cap degrees which is the best for my car? My goal is to make my fuel consumption low as possible. I have visited a lot workshops that denied checking my carb, because it is too complicated for them.. So I guess this is the cheapest method that I can afford at the moment. My other idea is to find and replace my carb with the fuel injection system from 2e-e engine but I don't have the money for that right now.. So any help or suggestions are welcomed and I'm sorry if there is something you can't understand but there are some strange terms that I can't translate from my language. Best Regards, Philip.
  14. Thank you for your fast answer, KP! Love your topic about THE GTI, I had great 5 hours reading it yesterday. Keep up the good work!
  15. Hi there guys! I have a Corolla e9 liftback (1987) and I want to know: can I replace my bonnet, headlights and grille with the e9 hatchback ones and if I can, is there any fit issues in the whole operation. :) Best regards!
