For Starters, ’89 Toyota Has Urgent Need For New One


15, 1996 | By Tom and Ray Magliozzi, King Syndicate

Question: I have a Toyota Celica Sport Two months ago I drove about 10 to a shopping mall. When I to my car, it wouldn’t start. The was dead. I got a jump and whipped to Goodyear, where the mechanic the problem was with the year-old I had a new one put in.

Tom: Sounds as if Goodyear was a special on batteries that Ginny.

Ray: I think your starter. It’s not for starters to fail intermittently and be by extreme heat. That would explain why all the accessories to function, even though the car start. My guess is that is an open circuit in the starter

Tom: To test it, ask someone to you where the starter is located (it like a can of stewed tomatoes the label peeled off). the next time it won’t have an assistant turn the key to the position while you give the a soft whack with a handle or a baseball bat. often enough to get the open to close and get the car started.

Ray: Or, if you want to play games and car parts with baseball (although I should add that of our customers find this cathartic), I would just the starter.

Mismatch bearings

I bought a 1990 Chevrolet 4X4 truck in December 1989. In 1995 the engine lost its oil and was badly damaged. The motor had 56,000 miles on it, but because of the and age of the truck, GM chose not to cover the

When a mechanic started to the motor, he found that the bearings did not match — as a set or as halves. This had to be a manufacturing made at the time the truck was When I told GM about they still would not responsibility for it — even it was a manufacturing error. I cannot GM would not stand behind that was put together wrong on the line. I work for a parts that is certified by GM. I know the rules we have to follow, so why GM practice what it preaches?

This motor now burns a of oil every 200 miles and fouls the plug to one of the cylinders. This is a result of the problem with the bearings. I feel GM should the cost of damages. I would to know your thoughts on the Len

Ray: We agree with you 100 Len. Someone on the assembly screwed up. And if you’ve got proof, you to pursue it.

Tom: General probably pooh-poohs everyone who for a new engine.

Ray: So, unfortunately, leaves you to prove that mismanufactured this engine. You a lawyer, a deposition from mechanic about what he in there, and pictures of the mismatched (or the bearings themselves).

Tom: And you present all that stuff to they’ll know your are serious. Good luck,

ABCs of cruise control

I recently bought a ’95 Probe. Cars certainly come a long way since I bought one 13 years ago. new to cruise control, but it didn’t very long to be sold on it. I have a couple of questions.

several people have me that the car will get better economy while using control. Really? If so, why?

if I know I’m going to be off control for a period of time example, when I’m through a town), does it if I turn off the cruise control on the dashboard? Is there any difference having it actually off and just not at the moment? Rob

Ray: You probably do get better with cruise control if driving on long stretches of flat roads. That’s cruise control keeps you at a speed.

Tom: It takes gas to speed up than it does to an even speed. And when of us drive, we inadvertently slow speed up, slow down,

But I wouldn’t use the cruise control to save gas. The benefit is marginal. The real reason to use control is so you don’t get cramps in right leg.

Ray: And you turn off the cruise control on the dashboard when you’re not to be using it for a while. The »set» is on the steering wheel or stalk of cars, which is great it’s very convenient. But also easy to engage it That’s why there is a harder to switch on the dashboard. So, yes, it off for safety when you’re not on the to prevent accidental engagement.
