PostSubject: Do I want to buy a working TVSV???   Mon Jun 17, 2013 11:43 am

Hello,

I would like to buy a working TVSV for my 86 corolla front-wheel drive.

My car starts up fine, drives fine for a few minutes, but then begins to bog down on acceleration.  If I keep driving, it seems to get better, but invariably between 5 and 20 minutes of driving, the car bogs down horribly.

At this point, the TVSV just SOUNDS like it might be my problem, as the symptoms are certainly temperature dependent, but I don't actually know what the TVSV does, or what the symptoms of its failure might be.  I just hope that throwing a working part at it will fix the problem.

Any advice or a lead on a cheap working part will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
RG

Honestly it sounds like a carb issue. You may want to go over all emissions controls systems as spec'd in the service manual.

thanks for your reply luciphear!

Well, I originally was afraid I'd need to rebuild the carb, but I had started to look elsewhere from the carb since the fuel level is in the middle of the little window on the side of the carb, and since the car only has 51k original miles.

Should I be considering rebuilding the entire carb?  I would really like to avoid that.  I am a student, and I've done quite a bit of mechanical work (only one carb, for a 22r), but I'm trying to stay focussed on school right now.

I guess the next step is to buy or find a repair manual.  Is there not a download available?

i believe there is a tercel manual that will work. they use the same 2bbl carb. i got my rebuilt carb from carb-x.com and was able to pass smog.
