"I haeve a rare model 1988 Celica Alltrac Turbo with only 109,000mi. This car has a 2.0L 16v turbo charged motor with Toyota Alltrac all wheel drive system. It is loaded with features 5spd manual, PB, PS, PW, PS, AC, ect. Cosmetically the car is in good condition. It does not havre any dents, but the ground affects body kit could use some minor TLC. This car is currently on non-op. It needs to be smogged and registered. It has been parked for a while. It starts and runs, but is currently suffering from a intermitant electrical short that causes the engine to loose power and shut down. This engine problem might be an easy fix, but the ideal buyer should have some mechanical know how to sort out tthis problem."

DON'T friggin part it out dammit.
Fix it or sell it WHOLE to someone else.

But yes, that sounds like a good deal.

lol typing error my bad...if i would have searched for an alltrak i would have never found it, cant swap a jdm in it, i have to keep it smog legal cuz i live in cali...yea im thinking about buying it but so far i have my celica, a 85 mr2 that im fixing up, a 1982 sr5 corolla that only has 60,000 on it i need to sell...and if i bought this id be the 3rd car lyin around till the mr2 is done

but again $750 and its only 40 miles away aint bad considering i have a trailer and could get it home for basically gas money... hmmmm if i buy this and fix the electrical issue, anyone wanna buy it off me? could be a fun quick prokect vconsiering im off work with pay for the next month

hah wiring causes it to lose power randomly... Yah... If you feel you can find a short...... Or you can find someone parting out I would replace the whole wiring harness acomming out of the computer... I meen people always post things like that but theres more to it if its going to cost 750 your going to put some more money into it...

yea thats what im thihnkin, get a new wiring harness/ecu from a 1st gen and that should fix it, then sell the old one or send it to tweak to fix...could do it myself but i have so much shit to do it aint funny
