Sounds like the cables for the motor are stretched or worn out. I had a 1990 Camry with the same problem. If you can hear the motor running, it is not the motor; the cables are a known failure point. Try contacting Weikle's Toyota Parts in Red Lion, PA, they are great for advice on these cars.


do you still own the 85 supras?
