New with Questions!!

Post by that4wdwagon on Tue Aug 19, 2014 9:06 pm

I need some help with something guys. First, let me start out with the story, a friend of mine told me his grandparents has a 1982 Cressida for sale with some issues, but I don't know the complete story behind the issues yet, I'll try to find out more tomorrow. He told me that his grandparents replaced the fuel filter and fuel lines on the Cressy, he didn't say why he replaced these parts. He then drove to the store which was only a few miles down the road and on the way back, the car broke down a couple hundred feet from his house. He said that the car started smoking real bad and then it bogged down and died and it wouldn't start back up. He said it acted like it was flooded. When he looked under the car some hose or line had busted(I'm not sure but I'm guessing it was a fuel line). But anyway, when it busted the fluid that came out ran down on some kind of computer looking thing or something like that. The grandfather is an older guy and forgot some things and was kind of unclear on a lot of details. Can anyone help me or does anyone have any kind of ideas on what it could be?

what?!?!? seriously great first post. look at the damn thing if you can't tell what is leaking we sure can't. As for the computer, I find that hard to believe that 82 more than likely has a 5me engine and possibly carbureted, if it is a later 82 model it may have the 5mge which had an external fuel pump on the passenger side toward the rear. At any rate there is not to much to these older Cressida. You really should do an introduction, the moderators will get on you.

Look man, if you would've read my post then you will see that I can't tell what is leaking because the car won't start back up. I wasn't the one driving it when it started leaking and the car has now been sitting for a year or two, so I can't tell you what was leaking, and the man is elderly and doesn't know very much about vehicles. So I can't get much information from him... I was just looking for some tips because I have no clue what I'm looking for on a Cressida because I've never owned one before(which is why I came here, y'all are the experts right?). If you didn't like the information I provided then there are much better ways to go about telling me without being flat out rude.

Now, back to the topic, it's fuel injected, and I am now thinking that whatever kind of fluid leaked(whether it be gas or coolant), leaked on the injectors and possibly shorted them out possibly? I don't even know if thats possible or not because I've never heard of it happening. The only other possible cause I can think of that would cause these problems is a faulty fuel pressure regulator. Any actual help would be appreciated and thanks in advance!

Dillon-
I am really not trying to be a Dick but, we'all aren't magicians here you really need to help us help you. I understand you are getting a pig in a paper poke but you are going to have to find out some more info, there is a reason no one else has even bothered to reply to your post in 11 days it has been here. If you are going to buy it, then buy it. people here will help you. We just to know what is leaking and where? Several things could cause it to stop running, obviously any of the fuel lines, the coolant hell hose is another common problem which runs from the throttle body down under the intake on the 5mge(which you haven't told us if it is) it will cause a meltdown, the transmission lines could have rotted out. If you are worried about buying a piece of shit my advice is do your basic used car inspection, does it turn over? either with the starter or a 19mm on crank. Is the oil on the dipstick and is it milky or black? does the transmission have fluid in it, is red, brown or black and burnt smelling? check the radiator and the overflow bottle do the have coolant , if so is it milky? and for god sake does it have gas, I know it sounds stupid but its not running, don't over look it, tap on the tank does it sound hollow and empty, or solid and full. I am sorry if I sound brass but again we need info, and you don't that pose this same question over at jzxp and see the response you get. http://jzxproject.com/bbs/index.php?act=idx  Believe you, me we will help you out. And for the sake of god, GO POST AN INTRODUCTION!!!!!!
