    1991 Celica GT4
  1. Thanks for the info mate. Should be much cheaper to run than my GT4 then? Phew.
  2. Hi, Does anyone know the actual insurance group for a MR2 Mk1 DOHC? Cheers
  3. Thanks. Halfords were pretty rubbish to be honest. Fensport seem spot on, just don't sell a replacement thermostat. Managed to find a parts dealer in Harrogate called Andrew Page, spot on prices and parts. :D
  4. Thanks for all of the info guys. Great source of info is this forum. Cheers
  5. Thanks for the info. I have just spoken to the technical team at Motorworld and they reckon that you can't just take 15" alloys off and repace them with new 15's cos apparently the break calipers on the GT4 are too big and hence the after market wheels will not fit. They recommended going for a 17" but these too may have complications. They reckon the arches may need some work to fit 17's. Can anyone hep some more on this issue as it appears that a 1991 J plate Celica GT4 is an absolute pain to buy new wheels for. I have also found some 215 / 15 / 50 Goodyear F1 GS - D2 tyres for £62.42 - is this a good price and are the tyres good? I could stick with the stock 15's and just get them refurbished.
  6. I was thinking of sticking with 15's but I think the 17's will look nicer. Thanks for the information. Just need somewhere to get some decent 17's from.
  7. Hi, I have a 1991 Celica GT4 which currently has 15" alloys. The tyre size is 215 - 50, which seem to be very very expensive to replace. For roughly the same money as four new tyres I can almost get a set of 17" alloys complete with tyres. However, can someone please advise me on whether or not 17" alloys will fit smoothly on my celica. (i.e. I don't want to have to alter the suspension etc) Also, does anyone know of any good places to buy a reasonably cheap set of 17" alloys (any make)? Thanks

  9. Are there any web sites or businesses that you guys can recommend for getting car parts from, specifically for my 1991 Celica GT4? I am looking for a thermostat etc to fix the car heating, but don't fancy paying Toyota prices for the part.
  10. Thanks for the link, they seem pretty good, but not sure that the shipping cost added to the seat would be any cheaper than having them retrimmed. Will browse around some more. Cheers
  11. yep, i did mean thermostat! Thanks for the advice, will have a look into it.
  12. I cleaned the connector and the temperature dial moves more freely now, but still no more heat. Think I need to replace the thermometer. Is this an easy job and where can I get the parts from. (i.e. does it have to be a toyota part?)
  13. Thanks for that. I think leather seats would look great in a GT4 as well. Thanks. will keep my eyes peeled.
  14. I'll give that a go, hope it solves the problem. Thanks
  15. Hi all, As some of you may have noticed I am relatively new to this site and it is good to see an active toyota forum. However, you may also notice that I have posted quite a few topics requiring help from you specialist guys out there. I am beginning to think that the cheap GT4 that I found was cheap for a reason. I now require some help with the heating in the car. I know that the air con does not work, I think it just needs topping up, hopefully it will not require much more than that. But, should the air con not working effect the heat given out by the normal fans? Basically, I can have the fans set to level 3 or 4, with the heating cranked up top and I still don't get much heat out of the car. If I open the center fans and set the heating to face level I get a blast of what can be described as luke warm air. Eventually it gets to a reasonable temperature in the car, but from experience, the heating in my old Toyota Carina II was unbearable on level 3, max heat after about 15 minutes. The other week I drove from Southampton to Leeds with the fans on 3 and the heat on max and no matter what directional fan setting I used I still didn't need to turn the heat or fans down. Is this caused by the air con? Have I got a faulty themometer somewhere? How do I track this down and what do you guys reckon this is? Cheers
