Zaid is right, (all credits for his post) I just want to say that I've had the same problems a couple days ago, this can help alot: http://www.popularmechanics.com/cars/how-to/a3094/how-to-find-a-vacuum-leak/ It's not very expensive to repair and not difficult at all Goodluck!

After a visit to the mechanic this turned out to be due to a cracked radiator. That caused coolant leak which led to heater not working. Will replace radiator. Check engine light that came on seems unrelated to this issue.

Assuming this problem is with the vehicle stationary and at idle (question states 800-1000 RPM), this usually happens due to one of the following reasons: A leak in the air intake tract/manifold that allows unmetered air in One could detect the presence of leaks through a smoke test. Compressed air and soapy water works as well. A faulty idle air control ...

Things may have changed, but I had this happen to my '94 Toyota Pickup. It was a bad thermostat. On that model it was built into the radiator cap. Basically, it gets stuck open and takes longer for the engine to heat up enough to operate the heater. Cold engine test: Start the engine. Time how long it takes the engine to warm up enough to produce heat ...

Yes, it is by design ... because it helps to equalize wear across the sprocket teeth and chain links. Here's why I had originally shared a link in the comments which presents the formula to calculate what's known as hunting tooth frequency. Mesh rate aside, this is governed by the the number of teeth in the sprocket and chain, a and b respectively: ...

A good indicator in the decision can be this question - which one is still being manufactured, has a large following and aftermarket part support? What this may imply is that you may have more luck finding cheaper parts for the MX5 than MR2 as well as getting more support on the forums or from local clubs.

Out of the 2, the MR2 is typically more reliable. It's classic overbuilt Toyota. However, the parts are obscenely expensive and can take days to weeks to get when you should happen to need one. Miata parts are cheap and readily available. I wouldn't make a decision based on that though. It's not like deciding between econobox A and econobox B. The MR2 ...

few things to check before you go spending too much money wheel bearings Warped disc brakes correctly balanced wheels (sounds oblivious but this used to be the issue 90% of the time when i worked in a garage) tracking (as already mentioned) bottom arm bushes after those, things start to get more expensive, its whether the cars worth spending the money ...

Jack the back of the car up, and spin the wheels by hand - comparing the two sides so you can tell what's different on the bad side. Try to shake the wheel vertically and horizontally - a worn wheel bearing will have more play in it than a good one. When spinning the wheel without load, a worn wheel bearing will make a slight rumbling sound, and might seem ...

I would like to take this time to share my thoughts in regard to the problem I've had with the 2000 Sienna. I've resently changed the drivers side motor that had the same problem. Only to have a problem a month later. My problem was not my motor but instead it was due to the Increase friction. Also the thermal fuse that is internal becomes very hot ...

Most manufacturers make localised modifications to comply with local regulations or simply expected model specifications. In the Volkswagen scene there is a big market in exporting EU parts to the US in exchange from US parts shipped back to the UK.

You want to lift up the front end and shake the tyres horizontally and vertically. If there are any play, some suspension bushings or steering components need replacing. if there are play in any direction, the hub is bad.
