Hi all from the Isle of Man,
I bought myself a Convertible Celica ST183, Year: 1993 on Saturday.
It is a Jap import and has 111000km on the clock.
I dont know much about its History as there are no Service manuals etc.
So far I have found a few problems but Im sure they are all fixable:
1/ The window at the back is ripped
so far its been siliconed over
2/ The Rear brake lights were not working - fixed by changing the fuse.
3/ The Horn isnt working - I reckon its also the fuse but haven't checked yet.
4/ I have a rattling exhaust - looks like someone has used wire instead of rubber grommets to secure the exhaust :S
5/ 4ws - I have a red light
Its strange - when I start the car and turn the wheel, the front/rear move in opposite directions. I drive forward a few meters and the red light comes on - now the wheels are turning in the same direction.
Its a 4 day weekend over here this weekend so Its going to get a good wash/polish and a service.
Should hopefully iron out all problems.
Im not sure about the timing belt but was glad to read its a non-interference engine
So I am looking forward to a good time with the car
