    1986 MR2 and 2002 Celica
  1. I have Yokahama's on my Celica and MR2 and I really like them. Good quality and they weren't too expensive in my opinion. :)
  2. I just found this site and joined up. My name is Teal and I have two toyotas. I have an 2002 Celica and a problem child 1986 Toyota MR2. I am from Eastern Tennessee and hope to learn more about Toyotas and in general cars from this site. Thanks! Teal
  3. This is my first post here and I am at my wits end. I have a 1986 N/A MR2. Has 96.600 original miles on it. I bought the car from someone who replaced the head gasket on it and then let it sit for awhile. When I got it, the car would not start. Now, only 50 miles after returning from the service center the car will barely go up a hill with my foot on the floor. Someone said that this car is fuel injected and therefore the injectors need to be cleaned. I just put a bottle of "gum-out" in the fuel tank tonight per directions and let it run, however it doesn't seem to help, if anything it seems worse. Currently I can get the car to 40 mph with the peddle to the floor the entire time. Up a small hill it drops down to 10 and barely creeps up. At this point I would like to take a gun and shoot it to put it out of its misery. Here is a list of what has been repaired in the last two weeks. I paid 1,400 for the repairs and I am pretty sure I got robbed. Anyways here is the list of what has been fixed, I would welcome some advice on what is wrong with this car or at least a bullet!
