The A Series Engines
Manufacturer Toyota

The A Series engines are a family of straight-4 internal combustion engines with displacement from 1.3 L to 1.8 L produced by Toyota Motor Corporation. The series has cast iron engine blocks and aluminum cylinder heads. The series began in the late 1970s with the 1A, an SOHC engine with a displacement of 1.5 L. Toyota joint venture partner Tianjin FAW Xiali still produces 1.3 L 8A and recently restarted production of the 5A. In between, many interesting variations were produced, including one of the first 5-valve engines (the 4A) and the 170 hp (127 kW) supercharged 4A-GZE.

The 1987-1998 4A-FE is different from the 4A-GE in terms of performance and power. Although both have the same displacement and are DOHC, they were optimized for different uses. The first obvious difference are the valves, the engine's intake and exhaust valves were placed 22.3° apart (compared to 50° in the G-Engines). The second is that it employed a 'slave cam system', one camshaft's sprocket rotated the other camshaft's sprocket (Both camshaft's sprockets on the G-Engine are rotated by the timing belt). The plus side of this design that it improved fuel efficiency and made the engine very torquey, on the down side it compromises power, about 20% less power compared to the 4A-GE. Power rating varies during certain generations that had the engine. Download high resolution version (1159x939, 154 KB)Toyota 4A-FE from a 1992 North American Corolla, October 2003. ...

Toyota designed this engine with fuel economy in mind. The 4A-FE is basically the same as the 4A-F (introduced in the previous generation of Corollas), the most apparent difference was the fuel delivery system. The 4A-F used a carburetor, while the 4A-FE used electronic fuel injection system (notice the 'E'). Also, the 4A-FE had extra power. The engine was succeeded by the 3ZZ-FE, a 1.6-liter engine with VVT-i technology. Bendix-Technico (Stromberg) 1-barrel downdraft carburetor model BXUV-3, with nomenclature The carburetor, carburettor, or carburetter (see spelling differences), also called carb (in North America) or carbie (chiefly in Australia) for short, is a device that blends air and fuel for an internal combustion engine. ...

Although not as powerful as the 4A-GE, both engines are renowned for the power they produce from such a low displacement (relative to other engines). Toyota engineers have skillfully optimized the power and torque from its relatively low-displacement engines.


The engine was used in the Toyota Corolla Sedan from 1988 to 1998 and in the 5th Generation Celica ST models from 1989-1993 both in North America and Europe , as well as the Camry from '87 to '91.

4A-G (16-valve)

The next major modification was the high-performance 4A-G, with the fuel injected version, the 4A-GE, being the most powerful. Production of the various models of this version lasted for three generations, from 1983 through 1992 for most versions, though the 5-valve 4A-GE lasted through 1998. Most 4A-Gs were 4-valve DOHC engines with wide (50°) valve spacing for performance.

The first-generation 4A-GE replaced the 2T-G in most applications. It was extremely light and strong for an all-iron engine block, and production lasted through 1990. The second-generation added piston-cooling oil sprays and higher compression ratios. The third-generation appeared in late 1991 with the 20 valve 4A-GE, which was itself updated in 1996 before being retired in 1998.

Power output for the 4-valve version varied widely, from 112 hp (84 kW) at 6600 rpm to 138 hp (103 kW) at 7200 rpm. Again, torque was closer, varying from 97 ft·lbf (131 N·m) at 4800 rpm to 110 ft·lbf (149 N·m) at 4800 rpm.


Special versions included the Japan-spec 4A-GEU, California-spec 4A-GEC, and even a Finnish-spec 4A-GE, as well as the transverse-mounted 4A-GEL. The engine was used in the company's flagship car, the Toyota Corolla, in the 1980s. The Toyota Corolla is a compact car produced by the Japanese automaker Toyota, which has acquired significant popularity throughout the world since the nameplate was first introduced in 1966. ...

The 4A-GE was one of the earliest inline-4 engines to have both DOHC 16 valves and electronic fuel injection (EFI). Toyota designed this engine with performance in mind; its twin camshafts are 50 degrees apart to allow decent power, but this sacrifices torque. This engine is very popular with racers and tuners because of its ease of modification, simple design, and lightness.

The engine was first introduced in the 1983 Sprinter Trueno AE86 and the Corolla Levin AE86 sports version. The AE86 marked the end of the 4A-GE as a rear wheel drive (RWD or FR) mounted engine, alongside the RWD AE86/AE85 coupes a front wheel drive (FWD or FF) corolla (the AE82) was produced and future corolla/sprinter's were all based around the FF layout. The engine was retired from North American Corollas in 1991, although it continued to be available in the Geo Prizm GSi (sold through Chevrolet dealerships) from 1990-1992.

Clarification: In the US market, the 4A-GE engine was first used in the 1985 model year Corolla GT-S only, which is identified as an "AE88" in the VIN but uses the AE86 chassis code on the firewall as the AE88 is a "sub" version of the AE86. The 4A-GE engines for the 1985 model year are referred to as "Blue top" as opposed to the later "Red top" engines, because the paint color on the valve covers is different, to show the different engine revision, using different port sizes, different airflow metering, and other minor differences on the engine.


An AE86 chassis code may be a base model Corolla, or an SR-5, with a 4A-C engine. Only the AE88 version carried the 4A-GE engine and GT-S designations in the US. In other markets, other designations were used. Much confusion exists, even among dealers, as to which models contained what equipment, especially since Toyota split the Corolla line into both RWD and FWD versions, and the GT-S designation was only well known as a Celica version at that time.


Toyota models that have had this engine:

  • Toyota MR2 AW11 - Mid-engine RWD
  • Corolla AE88 GT-S - RWD (often referred to as generic AE86 chassis group)
  • Corolla AE82 FX-16 - FWD
  • Corolla AE92 GT-S - FWD
  • SE Sedan (North America): (RWD from 1983-87 and FWD from 1988-91)
  • Some Celicas

4A-GZE

The 4A-GZE (produced in various forms from 1986 through 1995) was the supercharged version. Based on the same block and head, the 4A-GZE was equipped with a roots-type supercharger and therefore the compression ratio, valve timing and ports were modified. It was used in the supercharged AW11 Toyota MR2, rated at 165 hp (124 kW) and 140 ft·lbf (190 N·m).

A special 4A-GE was produced from 1991 through 1998 to replace the 16 valve 4A-GE. It was a naturally-aspirated engine with an additional intake valve for each cylinder, making it one of the first production 5-valve engines in history. These generation engines also featured quad throttle bodies. The engine can be recognized by its silver or black top. This was the last of the 4A family to be produced. Toyota VVT was used for 160–165 hp (123–127 kW) at 7800 rpm and 120 ft·lbf (162 N·m) at 5600 rpm, quite impressive for a naturally-aspirated 1.6 L engine. Note that although VVT was present in the silver top and the black top 4A-GE, VVT-i was not available.
