Great video, that motivates me even more to bring this car back to life! Can’t wait to finally drive one of these...

Glad it's worked out to be a salvageable unit with a bit of machine work, bearings, and gaskets. Too bad someone gooped the silicone mess all over it though - that oil screen was awfully sketchy.. and I mean, that's my non-professional opinion.. I imagine as a professional you cry a little each time you run into that sort of work. lol

Looking forward to seeing more work on the Celica!

I thought about it, but then I would have 2 non-legal cars. I’m also not interested in making the Yaris less reliable, it’s not like I have disposable income.

When it comes to finding cars with poor workmanship issues, they are easy to come by. Many “mechanics” think they know what they’re doing in professional roles, it’s almost garanteed to be worse when it’s “some guy” at “some shop”.

I may be wrong, or maybe I’m just tired of fixing other people’s mistakes...

Seems to be the truth. I've had mechanics mis-diagnose several issues on several cars. When I was living in a town house and couldn't really work on my own car I'd take it to shops. It took me quite a while to find one where they were honest, let alone knew what they were talking about.

I took my yaris to a shop to have them check the water pump a few years ago and they told me the whirring sound I was hearing was a squeaky clutch pedal. lol
