Looking at a Celica tomorrow!

Ok Sunday is the day I'm going to take a look at this Absolute Red 2000 Celica GTS. Just the basic info, it has 65000K miles, Injen CAI, TRD exhaust, TRD springs, Leather seats, tinted windows and sunroof. Other than getting it commpressioned tested and fully inspected at a toyota dealer, what can I look for at the spot?

-Where are the lift bolts located and how do you know if they're worn out or not?

Wow there is a lot of info in the tech info section. I never really looked through there. But I just found out that my computer doesn't have the program to open any of the files. So maingear that link you sent me was no good on my computer.

When I ty to click on it, an download box pops up. I click DL and save to My Documents. Then I try to open it and I don't have the special program to run it.

Not sure if you are going to be able to open up the engine to see the lift bolts. Those 2 lift bolts are located underneath the Valve. You have to crack it open to see it. Other than that, take it over 6K and see if you can hit lift.
