      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Toyota Corolla - interference engine?

Recommended Posts

I have an old beater car that is probably due for a timing belt, I would rather just take my chances and drive it until the belt snaps as long as it isn’t an interference engine. Can anyone tell me if it is or not? ’93 Toyota Corolla with the 1.8 liter engine. Thanks a lot, I appreciate the help.

If I recall correctly, Toyota doesn't have any interference engines in there late model vehicles. This would include the 1.6, 1.8, 2.0, 2.2, 3.0, and 3.4 litres (thats all I can think of). I'm not sure about the 4.7 v-8.

The only problem we see when these belts break is that a lot of the time it damages the timing covers. Other than that the recomended service is every 60,000 miles under severe conditions. I would check with the dealer on replacing the belt. The usually offer the belt replacement for the 4 cylinders at around $200. At least thats the info I get in the fliers they send to me.

Not to rob this thread or anything, but Airjer, what is the going rate for a 3.4 liter V-6 Timing belt replacement? I have 103,000 on my 1997 Tacoma 4x4, and have been pondering getting it done.

I believe you can plug the 2.4 in there as well. I'm pretty sure that's what's in my Camry and RAV.

I don't even know if they have a belt or a chain blush.gif

I do believe that the 2.4 liter and for sure the 2.7 liter have a timing chain.

In that kneck of the woods I would expect $300 to $600 dollars. Depending on weather you replace the water pump, drive belts, and do a coolant flush at the same time.

Junkie- I have had two corollas one with well over 200,000 and my current one approaching that benchmark very rapidly. Never have replaced a timing belt. Just fix stuff when it is about to break. I have been real lucky, neither car ever left me stranded.

Warning highjack in progress: My '91 (current) corolla when it gets really hot (like 95 degree day, and on the freeway for longer trips[over 40 miles]) if I pull over and make a stop, shut the car off, I return a few minutes later and find that the car is dead to the world. Turn the key and the car won't turn over. Now if I wait a few hours try it again, it starts and runs like a champ. Is there an overload some where? I can never get it to happen while I am at home near testing equipment. Any ideas? Airjer?

Let me guess The lights, radio, windshiels wipers, And every other electrical device works properly, it just won't crank over (turn the key and dont hear the engine turning over).

If this is the case the problem is more than likely the starter sufferring from heat soak. Either the windings in the starter or the solenoid are opening when hot so that the current cannot pass through.

If nothing works, the car is completely dead, I would start with battery conections and then work my way to the major vehicle grounds. Remeber when electrical parts get hot there resistance is greater than if they are cold (Except for thermisters of course grin.gif)!

Hope this helps

That's what I was thinking. Got 60k on the RAV and 30k on the Camry. Still got a little while to think about it.

Thanks Airjer

First assumption was correct airjer- What the heck is "heat soak"?! Stroke? Would a new starter remedy the problem? That is what I was thinking was the problem. But with a car that old I might just plan my stops to not include one after a long hot spell (engine temp). wink.gif

Heat soak is a real common problem on old fords. Basically when you stop moving all that engine heat gets trapped in the engine compartment. The starter gets as hot as it ever will.

Do you hear a click at all when you turn the key. If you do this is a good sign. The click means that the solenoid is still working and the problem may be the contact plate plunger thingy grin.gif (Thats so wrong on so many levels but I cant think of the name right now). If your handy it wouldn't hurt to remove the starter and remove the solenoid cover. You will see a round copper plate. On the back side, when removed you will see the contact areas. try cleaning them up and see what happens.

Thanks for all the info, I went 130k before I changed the original timing belt and I'll be going until this one snaps. Feel free to highjack away on this thread I got the info I was looking for.

air- I hear a click but it sounds like it is coming from inside of the cab, unless I am hearing it through the firewall. I guess the starter is on the back side of the motor....It only does it a few times a summer. I only use the car to commute back and forth to work, so I only stop to get gas, and it is usually on a cold engine. (I guarrentee I will be searching for this thread next summer) grin.gif

Thanks

Sounds like that solenoid plate plunger thingy. Its either worn out or severly arc burned. Than can be replace relatively cheaply. Good luck next summer!!

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

       Anyone have any good news or been up there lately waz up  over the Fourth of July did OK nothing to brag about a few walleyes  or any other lakes around the area not looking for hotspots or nothing trying to catch a few panties
    • jj56342
      OK thank you thinking about going up first week in September

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.
