1993 Toyota Paseo Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 1993 Toyota Paseo based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
A loss of power on the freeway may due to an internally leaking fuel pulsation dampener. This commonly occurs on higher mileage vehicles.
Usually by 150,000 miles the AC system will need some attention, especially in climates where it is used often. Our technicians tell us that it is best to service the AC system every 2-3 years. This keeps the moisture in the system at a minimum which extends the life of the components.
The Throttle Position Sensor can get out of adjustment due to wear in the throttle body or due to carbon build up. This will cause the idle timing to advance more than 30 degrees which will cause very high HC and NOx emissions. Conversely, the Throttle Position Sensors can wear out and not properly advance the timing which causes a lack of power and poor fuel economy.
The engine mount on the driver side of the car can wear out on cars with high mileage. This will put extra stress on the other mounts and the faulty mount will need to be replaced.
A squeak or groan noise may be noted from the front or rear suspension. Spraying a light lubricant on the suspension bushings 1-2 times per year may help eliminate the problem.
