We were all clueless at one time.

I'd say buy the manuals, if you can.

The onlines are good, but you may be away from
a computer when something breaks ? :-)

Is there a groups of lady AT or Celica owners ?
There is a growing number of you here, even if You
do not post as often.

not much in the way of woman racers, that I can find...

Yes, what a great day to join.....Valentines Day haha...I didnt pay attention to that. Anyways, I work graveyard shift so I have plenty of time to print out the manual. Thanks for the link to the scanned copy. I'm just printing my little heart out right now haha. Funny thing is I'm getting paid while I do it!
I think I'm gunna have to go Rambo stlye and get my damn car back. It's supposed to snow here the next couple of days, perfect time to let it loose in the snow. It drives, just drains the battery fast. Are there other females in this particular group. You guys are really nice tho. I think if I hadnt found this site, I probably would feel really crappy about my purchase and just sold it off. I'm sure ya'll will be hearing alot from me! Hav a great day :smokes:

Not anymore.

PPIR was bought out and shut down to eliminate the competition for a proposed new track closer to Denver.

Regarding the alternator, I bought a cheap lifetime guaranteed replacement from Checker Auto Parts and I replace it about every year and a half when it dies. It's such a simple job that I don't mind replacing it often, and Checker has always been happy to hand over a new one.

That would be great to be able to call someone that lived around me .....thanks!! Buying an alternator w/ a lifetime guaratee is a great idea. I just really wanted to get the car goin so I could drive the dang thing!! And yes it is still kidnapped!! It was supposed to be done friday but then they said there was still an issue with the wire and needed to find a diagram??

Once again I say..... :shoots: Damn mechanics

I'm in Aurora. But get this all.....So I went to pick up my car, had to pay the ransom. I wont say how much cuz I'll probably be shot. Anyways, I had to drag 2 of my kids on a 2 and a half hour bus ride (Presidents Day, no school) to get the car. So I'm driving along...I dont take the highway just in case something happens. Well lo and behold the car starts overheating!!!. I pull over to a gas station and open the hood and the engine coolant is straight boiling!!!! :cry: I remembered the address from a Toyota mechanic and I happened to be 4 blocks away. So I let it cool and took it there. They checked it out and said I needed a new cooling fan. They did some bypass so that I could still drive it just the heater wouldnt work as good. So unfair :(

If the speedometer doesn't work, theres probably a loose wire behind the dash that should be connected. pretty easy if you know how to remove the dash without damaging anything. I know i had the sme problem with my old GT with the tach, but i never took the time to fix it.

i just replaced my alternator thinking it was broken when it wasnt... is your ABS light on? if so, its just a fuse down by your feet...

take it to an autozone or pep boys or something like that, they should be able to run free battery/alternator tests

i have an extra working alternator sitting right here if you cant find one dirt cheap

There were issues with the alternator which was expressed to me when I bought the car which is now fixed tho it cost me an arm!! But yes my ABS light is on....does that just need a fuse change? Thanks!
