blacktop wrote:I have a 2001 NZE 121R (FU Singapore). I've had the car for 14 years with no major AC issues other than replace the evaporator probably 7 years ago.

Took it for an engine wash (was getting it valued nuh) - next thing AC acting up.
Right now I have it on the coldest setting and the lowest speed. One minute it is working. Next minute it is not. Does not matter the time of day. If I fiddle with the settings (especially the temperature) though it will stop working.

I drove to town from Trincity for 4 days at 8 in the morning - it worked every day. The 5th day, it worked up to Aranguez. As soon as I started to accelerate out of the traffic that was it. It stopped. If I turn it off, give it a 10 minutes I can switch it on and it will work again. Drove from Sando to Trincity at night it was like the north pole in the car. Made the same drive last night - and it worked for 15 minutes and konk out

Gassed, checked for leaks etc. - worked for 1 day
Went to electrician - said it's the relay. Replaced the relay - it worked for a grand total of about 5km before it stopped working
Went back to electrician - oh, it's not the relay (I put back my ORIGINAL 13 year old relay), the clutch not kicking in on the compressor so default response - replace compressor
When the engine is cold, and I turn on the AC the fan starts
And when it is working you are hearing the compressor coming on and off.

Any ideas other than the default, easiest answer 'replace compressor'?

Replace the compressor/ repair.

Can it be the coil in the compressor?

Saving replacing the compressor as last resort. The clutch engaging ... wondering if it is still electrical maybe some switch/thermostat? Will see if I can get it serviced ...

Hi all, I am new to cars, currently when i'm driving and it rains, the water from the front left Tyre flashes between the door and causes a build up of dust and grit. i looked at the right side and saw that there is a protective thingy that the left side does not have, can someone tell me what it is called and where i might be able to get a replacement, the car is a NZE 124 Fielder wagon.
Thanks in advance

Does anyone know of a direct bolt up front brake replacement(bigger rotor and caliper) for a local 121? Does the celica bolt directly? Was even looking at the runx option but haven't seen any of these in my searches in the used parts yards.

See if the ZZE (1.6 and 1.8) JDM and Singapore brakes are bigger.
They come with 11 inch rotors in the US.

I had bought cross drilled slotted rotors from Power Seller; Dual Star. Six years ago and it still holding out. Can't remember the brand, it was some Power something.

There are a few online sites, summit racing, carid, andys auto sport and the popular ebay with the rotors but you have to communicate with them because they don't put up all the specs.

Some of the corolla/altis models in the US are 5 lug rotors. Thats from 2002 and newer.

Hey tuners, I'm thinking about purchasing a NZE soon. What things should I look out for? What are some of the common issues with these cars? When buying a used car I always like to have put aside $ or at least know how much an engine and transmission is gonna cost me if imo the worst were to happen. Any pros and cons to consider? Thanks in advance for any feedbacks?

they are pretty durable cars. the main issues they have are with the transmission if it was abused and the ac compressor. the compressor is pricey even used it goes for like $2000. the japanese version has the 1nz engine which is pretty cheap to replace. ive seen a head and block for like $2500 for the most. the singapore nze have the 1zz or the 3zz engine im not to sure but its a bit more expensive to replace that one
