Hi everyone, for my 18th birthday on October I bought a 1995 Celica second hand. It's a manual with 218,400km. The car is in good condition and everything works fine, apart from a suspected loose engine/transmission mount I mentioned in my other post. (This will be fixed on friday) Are there any veteran Celica owners that can tell me a little about what it's like to own a st204 Celica? I've already discovered first hand that they're quite good on fuel but how about oil? Is there anything in particular I need to look out for? I've taken a good look a the engine, and I can see almost everything in there is stock except for the radiator which has been replaced. If anyone knows about anything that would need to be checked or replaced in this 20 year old car, I would love to know about it.

The timing belt certainly isn't new but there isn't any excessive wear or squeaking

The 5s-fe can be known to burn oil at high kms so keep an eye on the oil levels, but this is pretty much what happens to every engine eventually.

 

If general maintenance is carried out regularly these engines are pretty bulletproof.
