Worn Shift Bushings Will Cause Manual Transmission to Pop Out of Gear

Rattling noise from timing belt tensioner at higher mileages
The timing belt tensioners may make a rattling noise at a higher mileages. This is due to the adjustment being at its limit. Our technicians tell us that range of the adjuster may be lengthened by elongating the slot where the spring attaches by 2-3 mm to remedy this problem.
Updated Expansion Valve to Correct Leaks and Poor Performance

The AC Expansion Valve may develop a very slow leak or allow too much refrigerant flow which reduces cooling. Our technicians tell us that Toyota makes an updated expansion valve to resolve these problems if and when they occur.

1992 Toyota Paseo Reviews

Great car - fantastic reliability We have had this car for 6 years and it is now on 230,000 kms Only changed battery & tyres plus oil Doesnt leak creak or over heat fantastic
Bought my 92 Paseo with 52,000 miles on it. Never leaks oil. 37 mpg in town and 45 mpg on highway. Has 172000 now, still sounds like a new car. Have only replaced a headlight switch, battery, tires, oil, and starter in the last 120,000 miles. Liked it so much I bought a 96 Paseo just in case something ever happened to the 92.
My Toyota Paseo has 270,00 miles in it,just put 2nd timing belt in it. I am having trouble locating complete strut assembly direct bolt on. Anyone out there who can steer me to right path?
