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.
Improperly Adjusted Valves May Cause Emissions Failure/Rough Idle

A rough idle and even an emissions inspection failure for high HC and CO can be caused by improperly adjusted valves. Also, exhaust valves may become to tight which can lead to valve failures. Our technicians tell us that regular valve adjustment inspections are a must.

1995 Toyota Paseo Reviews

Bought this car for my daughter with 17,000 miles on it from a dealer. I never had any problems with the car other than a new water pump at around 200,000 miles. It now has 256,000 miles and the engine is starting to rev up and down when idling. It has been a super, super, little car with gas milage at approximately 32 MPG. The big question is, why did the big car makers ignore this fuel...
Bought my 1995 Paseo new in 1996. It now has over 300,000 miles on it. No major repairs - I changed oil every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. My daughter now drives it and is just now needing master cylinder repairs. Great car!
