1991 Toyota LiteAce GXL from Philippines - Comments

4th Mar 2011, 19:02

I'm an owner of a 95 GXL.. To add to most of the comments for overheating or slightly going past the 1/2 mark of the temp gauge.. I changed the distributor cap due to a worn out tip.. I noticed that the temp was just slightly below the 1/2 mark.. Also have your engine decarbonized. You would notice that your idle would be constant and stable, quicker response, water drips in your tailpipes. Decarbonization would clean your fuel lines, carb, intake manifold, and the best of all is your combustion chamber.

I already changed my radiator with a 3 rows, and I put a fan in front of the radiator so that every time I will use the air con, the fan will turn on.

I have a LiteAce 92 model.

My tip is overhaul your radiator, put an auxiliary fan in front of it, put coolant, use distilled water such as Wilkins or absolute, change your muffler into freeflow, and change your aircleaner with thin one.

Enjoy riding! :-)

Sir, just want to ask if you have idea what diesel engine can replace the 5k engine, that fits in the LiteAce engine bay?

If you add power steering in your LiteAce, it will add additional load to your engine, causing it to deteriorate earlier. It will also cause the engine to overheat, especially in heavy traffic.

Hi, I am in Zambia, Central Africa. My LiteAce requires a complete suspension, steering rack replacement and gear box, or anyone to supply me secondhand the above items from your abandoned LiteAce. Mine is a 5k manual, with the battery behind the driver's seat.

Any suggestions are welcome.

Thanks, M.DAVIES (my email is mwenyadavies@yahoo.com)

We have the same problem... Did you solve the problem already? What did you do with it?

The normal consumption of a 5k engine is 10 to 12 km per liter.

I'm buying a LiteAce GXL '93 with power windows, but not the power steering. I'm so happy to have come across this forum, as I already have some tools to fix this overheating problem in case it appears on my ride, after reading all the comments... Thanks very much for the info.

35 Km/Lt, LiteAce 91 model.

35km/l as the gas mileage of your LiteAce? Is that in gasoline or diesel? Tell us what you've done to your car. AMAZING. I only get 7-8km on highways, and 5km running with the A/C on city roads for every liter.
