1984 Toyota Supra Celica 2.8L
A fixer-upper with potential
Keeps blowing the engine fuse.
Had severe oil leaks.
Has started overheating.
Has a broken computer (controls timing, engine performance).
I bought this car about a month ago, very cheap. It had obviously not been kept up. Definitely a project of a car.
The hatchback had lots of rusted out spots. A trip to the junkyard showed this to be a common problem with this model.
The computer that controls the engine and timing is not working. I found one other matching computer,used, at the junkyard and it was broken too. I'm hoping that when I get a working computer this will solve some of my other problems.
The car keeps blowing engine fuses. I don't know why this is happening yet. A nice feature though is that each time the fuse breaks, the headlights come up and when I put in a new fuse they go back down. It makes a great indicator.
The car stalls once in a while at red lights. However, it starts right back up.
The car began overheating when I tried to drive it out of the county. Unlike other cars, though, it didn't stay overheated. This got me home.
This car was abused and needs a lot of work. However, I think it has great potential. Even with a broken computer it has pick-up!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
