    corolla gti
  1. hi all, just looking for some helping advice, local mechanics were not able to help so i thought i'd turn to the experts. i developed a fault with my corolla gti (ae92, h reg 1.6 gti), i was driving along and the car cut out. i restarted and it worked fine for the rest of the day. the next day i started it and the rev counter was all over the place, the moment you put your foot on the accelerator it revs up and then cuts out. the mechanic checked it out and said the ht leads could be the cause. they've been replaced but no luck, there is a spark and fuel is fine. currently it starts for about 3 seconds then the revs shoot upto 9000rpm and it cuts out. it restarts everytime but then just cuts out. i'm sorry but my knowledge of cars is very basic so i don't know what else to say, thats the best i can describe it, any advice or help will be much appreciated. thanks

    Help Needed

    hi guys, having a bit of a weird problem can anyone offer any advise. i have a '91 gti, up until two days ago everything was fine, i was sitting in traffic, behind a police car, and my car started to rev itself! it revved upto about 3000rpm and kept dropping between 2-3000 rpm. when i got moving again, the car drove like normal, but everytime its in neutral or very low speed( even when in gear) the car revs itself. when its being driven it fine. i have no idea what it is? can u help? thanks in advance
  6. thanks, i'll try that. only problem is the key doesn't move, tried all day yesterday tryin to get it to the acc position. i'll try anyway, and let you know how it goers. thanks

    Will They Fit?

    hi, just asking a question for my brother. will 19'' alloys fit on a celica gt-4 (st185) or will they rub and cause problems, if so like what? hes thinking of getting a st205 soon and wanted to know if he can take the wheels onto that aswell.(i.e when he sells the st185-will the same wheels fit the st205 gt4?) thanks guys p.s has anyone got any pics of a celica on 19s (either st185 ot st205)?
  10. hi, how are these coming along? and how much they going for? i'd be intrested in a set.
  11. sorry guys but i gotta agree with yagga, i bought my h-91 gti, with full toyota history, 67,000 miles, one owner excellent cond for £750! i had two corollas before that, one white with 96,000 a few years back now, and that was for £900, thats the most i paid! if you lots are willing to pay 1800 for one i'll sell you mine!!!(only jokin i love mine too much!)
  12. sorry mate, i'm logged on under my brothers name, its a small box next 2 the power steering fluid u need 2 look 4
  13. the best way i find 2 see if the car has abs is 2 drive it really fast and then slam on the brakes, if it locks then u aint got abs and if it locks and unlocks etc then u have abs, there is another way 2 find out, pop the hood and next 2 the power steering fluid should be a small bow which should have about 4 or 5 cabels coming out of it, this would be the abs model, if u have a gap like mine then u aint got abs, also if it is abs then u should have a light on the dash when u r about 2 start the car i recommend u try the my way 1st,trust me it is fun, do it in an open space where u aint gona cause any danger, if ur still not sure, i'll test the car, if not then pop the hood, hope i've been help mate
