Question about 1993 Toyota Celica
I drove the car to school and it worked fine, but when I tried to start it in the afternoon, the engine turned but wouldn't fire. We replaced the distributer cap, checked the vacuum hoses, and we think the fuel filter is fine. Right after we replaced the distributer cap, we got it to start and drive down the street only for it to die and be towed home where we noticed the fuel pump relay was missing (and cost $100). Not sure if that is the problem though. We don't know what else it could be. Any ideas?
the posting date are a little bit old but anyway, there is no two prong relay if i may inform you.
minimum terminal of a 12v relay are 3. regular 12 v relay has 4 prong. 2 for contact and two for power of the coil.
anyway i just toldl you this because you might miss the relay because you are looking for a two prong relay.
back to your problem of not starting.
car wont start if you dont have fuel and spark.
you can check if you have fuel in the carburetor
then check if you have spark.
then we'll start from there..
tnx 4 using fixya,

If your battery is more than three years check liquid level . measure its voltage to maintain over 12.5 volts. If not replace it.

If the fuel pump is missing, it needs to be there because that part is important. Also check some leaks even small leak can cause the problem.

SOURCE: 93 celica won't start
On my 89 gt it would die going down the highway at 75, it ended up being the throttle position switch. As for not starting I'd look into the ignition. Mine went out and Ive bypassed a push-to-start button through the firewall because I don't even want to deal with the steering coloumn.
