1990 Toyota Tercel


This is a 1990 Toyota Tercel EZ with a 1.5L Engine. It has a 1 Barrel carburetor, 4 speed manual transmission, cold air, heater works great too, tint windows, and it has 72,536 original miles. It looks really good and runs better than it looks. We are the second owner. It’s has been in NM since it was new so there are no rust issues.

We bought the car with 53,000 miles on it. Shortly after we bought it, we replaced the Struts, shocks and CV axles. About a year later we installed a new fuel pump and we had a timing belt kit installed. This kit included the timing belt, tensioner, bearings and gaskets.

We still have the receipts that the 1st owner gave us along with receipts from the work we have done. The parts we installed have warranties with some of them being lifetime warranties. If the warranty info is not on or with the receipt, it is online at the site of purchase.

We performed our own maintenance. This included, oil changes every 3,500 miles, tune ups less than every10,000 miles and brake pads & shoes when needed. The last tune up included a new distributor cap and spark plug wires. That was in the fall of 2015.Most of this Toyota Tercels’ miles have been highway miles. Because, we do our own maintenance we have extra spark plugs, oil filters and an air filter. These parts will go with the car along with a few items given to us by the original owner. That is if the winning bidder wants them.

A couple of things we feel we should mention follow. We hit a deer and put a dent in the center of the hood. The hood would not close. We had limited tools with us.So, we used a pair of vise grips to straighten the hood out. We were able to fix it so that it would close. Next, the car will need one of the front tires replaced before too long (estimated at within the next 10K miles). If you look at the pictures they show all four (4) tires. We took the pictures from the angle that best showed the thread. The pictures of the tires are in this order. Picture 16 - Driver side front - Picture taken from rear of tire- Almost new tire. Picture 17 - Passenger side front tire - This is the worst tire that we mentioned earlier in this paragraph. Picture 18 - Driver side rear Picture 19 Passenger side rear. As you can see these two (2) tires are similar in thread. The thread is pretty good just not new. As you can see in pictures 18 & 19 the color of the rear bumper looks entirely different. This was due to the flash on the camera. It would flash on some pictures and not on others, we could not figure out why. As you look at the other pictures shading was affected by this. We do what we can. And, on top of it John took these pictures. Ronda is usually the photographer. Hopefully she will be able to in the future. Hey he thinks he did pretty good on this one. We hope you do too.
