Well, if it does come down to making a road trip to Minneapolis, I wouldn't mind working on your car and showing you a few tips 'n' tricks. I wouldn't drive the car that far with what the rear brakes looked like though, lol.
Okay, great! I think it is working properly now. ... I prolly should have the timing belt changed as well as its been at least 30,000 miles since it has been, and probably a lot more than that. Expensive tho. ....
This is a 93 car, so Im thinking that timing belt might be REAL easy to check. I remember 83 Corolla where it was sitting on side of engine covered by platic housing. Not even an hour to change in friends backyard. If U know someone they might at least be able to check for free.
On an unrelated note, 98 Camry pedal STICKS sometimes. Toyota dealer told me it was throttle body and cleaned for about $60. Didnt do crap (damned theives) thouh as pedal still sticks like crazy. Its a real hassle as when I switch from D to Neutral and back to Drive the pedal will sometimes stick and I have to press pedal REAL HARD sometimes to give gas. Sometimes when I brake and then hit gas to start up again, it sticks. Sometimes it doesnt stick at all, but over the course of a ride it wil happen a few times. Its pretty persistent and annoying. Its an everyday occurence that happens often on every ride. Any ideas??? Most noticable after braking and after switching back to drive from neutral coast.
Im in NY metro area (Brooklyn/Queens/Long Island) and GOOD, honest mechanic is hard to find
