Full Version: Under car splash shield question with pictures
6G Celicas Forums > 6th Generation Celica > Engine/Transmission/Maintenance
IllIllIll
I have had ongoing overheating issues, & I finally rebuilt my engine. I want to ensure that it stays cool & clean like the factory intended. I am looking for the under engine plastic splash shield(s) for a 1997 manual transmission Celica GT. I found a place online that sells two different styles, but I don't know which one is the proper one for my car. Can any one show me which one is right, or are they both needed? I haven't found a Celica around anywhere to look at. Can someone please either post a picture of the underside of a Celica or at least tell me which one I need.

Is this one for Auto? Or is it only for the drivers side?

Is this the manual one? Or is it just the passenger side?



If any anyone has a good source for these let me know. Also if anyone has one they are willing to part with cheap let me know.

Thanks I found the information I needed just a few minutes ago. There was a picture in the repair manual that I had overlooked a dozen times. It shows two of those splash shields. So It looks like I need to order both of those shields.

I have the front one that goes under the radiator. That's were my tools get lost at when I'm working on my car. biggrin.gif I found 2 sockets & a screw driver there last time a looked.

Does anyone know of anyplace to buy those at a reasonable price. They are looking to be about $50 each after shipping. Seams kind of expensive for two bit of plastic.

X2, this is your best bet for low cost, and all u have to do is pressure wash them after, and your good to go.

Are these OEM? I need these too. Are there part numbers for these. Maybe I can get these from a local dealer across the border.

you should probably get them back on there dude, especially with a cold air.. just think when you get muddy water splashing onto your cai ull be getting some of the dirt goin through to your injectors.

Is anyone going to correct him? Muddy water that splashes on an airfilter will not result in dirt running through your injectors. The only thing running through your injectors is gasoline, and unless you splash muddy water in your gas tank you will be ok.

Well, yes but there are other issues as well.

Air boxes are engineered so that you can't get the filter wet unless you submerge the car. Aftermarket kits vary, but in general the filter can get wet a lot easier. Depending on the type and quality of the filter material, it may let water through or it may choke the air flow.

I think If you are going through that much mud and water its gonna get in anyway seeing at those under trays don't protect much.
