What the heck..... it runs
By Jeff Popp on
1994 Toyota Tercel DX 4dr Sedan
I bought mine used at 60K and found it
quickly going through oil. It started
out needing a quart about every 1500
miles and eventually degraded to every
400. On the recommend on my mechanic
(he thinks it has a cracked ring) I
switched to 20-50w oil
returned to 800 miles.
It is NOT comfortable, NOT roomy (I'm
6-3) and NOT fun to drive. It is a
pig on hills and you can forget about
trying to pass anyone on a two-lane
road. But it has always gotten me
where I need to go and may continue to
putt on for who knows how long.
It now has 134K miles and I am giving
it away to our church.
It always feels great to get out of it.
How about a little engine power?
More head and leg room would be nice.
