4AGE 20V Blacktop Engine/ Service Manual

For those who lucky enough to convert the 4AGE 20V into their beloved Toyota machine for example those Toyota Corolla AE100, AE101, AE111 or older models like the legendary AE86 or even older model like those KE series and unfortunately those halfcut engines do not come with a complete 4AGE 20V engine manual.

Normally we do not really need this since I believe all of you out there have enough knowledge on how to maintain the engine but when comes to the time to look for parts number then this engine manual is great for us to keep or have for.

Here I would like to share with you all the 4AGE 20V Blacktop engine/service manual. Feel free to download it with 0 cost and if you face any difficulties to download it, do drop me a mail or write down your email address in the comment area and I will send a copy to you.

How To Jump Start A Car

Recently I came across that some people out there using a wrong method to jump start a dead battery. Here I would like to teach you step by step everything you need to know to jump start a car with a dead battery. I will also show you photos of the correct jumper cable setup, how to jump start a car battery, and give you dead battery troubleshooting tips and battery & alternator buying tips. Print this page & keep it in your trunk with the jumper cables if possible.

The 3 biggest causes of dead car batteries are leaving your lights on, not maintaining your battery properly with the correct water levels (for older maintenance batteries), and breakdown of the diode bridge or voltage regulator in your alternator. Of course some people get a bad starter, but the odds of that are low compared to the other causes dead car batteries.

63mm Throttle body for MIVEC 4G92

First off heres the side by side view (ok its not a good photo). But you can see the size difference, and the missing half of the center rod, all good for more flow.

The stepper motors were swapped over so the ECU would still know where it was(and so i knew it was a working one). Though i think it winds if fully open everytime its starts, then puts it where it wants it.

In preperation i removed the hoses to the throttle and looped them together, so no water heats the throttle body. I had also removed the little flap inside which is heat controlled.
