Good Garage To Rebuild A 4Age Blacktop (Carina Gt)


Recommended Posts

The two members you need to get in touch with is Gunat and Kim. Gunat used to be the resident expert on these engines and got it rebuilt once and might be able to point you in the right direction with regards to a good mechanic for it. He bought the kit from Toyota Lanka.

Read this post, lots of useful info.

Great! Thanks. It's done about 210K. Local mechanic said it was under compression and sludge had built up blocking the VVT valve. So I guess it's time to do a overhaul. Need a 2nd opinion from a mechanic that knows this engine.

Is this a 16V or 20V version ? You might get away with just replacing the piston rings and get about another 100K out of that engine. If it's the 20V version best go with a specialist like you say. As Gunat suggests in his post you probably should get your internals like bearings checked out as well while you have it open.
