  1. Once they start to burn oil can't it be fixed? What's the reason for it?
  2. not sure of the policy on posting links up here but, this is where i started and a copy of my first post, the link should save me answering a lot of questions, http://www.celica-club.co.uk/forum/index.php?/topic/124948-info-wanted-on-94-99-st/ please let me know id il re-write if need be hi im thinking of maybe buying a 1.8st as not much higher group than my current car (would love a faster one but yet to look into insurance for a 2.0 but looks unlikely) im interested in the coupe 94-99 bodyshape as allways liked it (not sure what gen you guys call it) looking around for honest information on faults and repair guides Ect like what can be done at home by a capable mechanic without specialist tools, can timeing belts be changed / and water pumps or head gaskets be re-fitted and so-on or will that require the expencive tools to re time before starting a engine with new belts , and common faults that may acure. things that may get worn out more than a other car? do ecu's fail immobilizers? sensors? can they take the high mileage if so is fsh a must or maybe just receipts?? at what milage should belts and pumps be changed? or to they tend to last what damage can be done if a belt snaps? will it bend valves or can i get away with replacing the belts as with some cars? are electrics good? reliable? can emmitions? cats? lambda play up? service infirmation prices for if they cannot be done at home, (not that im looking to buy one needing any work! just if i do and the unexpected did happen id just like a idea what to expect and therefore try avoid it
  3. hi thinking of buying a celica dont want pop up lights i think its the 94 99 shape i`m looking for, propbably will have to settle for a 1.8 but may go 2.0, the gt 4 turbo is out of the question i`d say insurance wise i think. what to look out for? whats the best engine as i had a quick look at the parkers spec guide and why is the 1.8 gt the same spec as the 2.0? http://www.parkers.co.uk/cars/specs/Summary.aspx?model=899
