Check your air filter and filter box. It sounds like somehow water is getting into the air filter. This is not good in any circumstance. If there is any water getting to the air filter and into the engine, you need to find the where the water is coming from and seal it off. Engine + Water = Damage in most cases.

So, check your air intake. Specially around the parts that join together. Such as the main air duct tube and plenum, then air filter box, ect..

It definitely sounds like water getting into the intake somehow, and I'd check that absolutely first. Your airbox should be dry as a bone, even after driving through a monsoon. LoL. Check into that first bud.

My 90 celica takes about 5 minutes to start,


gosh i really wish we can both get assistance on this one , mine is a 2003 and does the same thing. when i took it to the shop they said it could be my catalistic (somethng like that) converter, once i fixed that , now they are saying the problem are the emissions, ( i think emissions are the hoses that are probably not well connected.

Sounds like you need to have your fuel pump serviced.

My engine sputters and jerks only when it is raining and defrost


Yes I just changed my ignition coil and spark plugs where the ignition coil was bad #3 and all my problems stopped. It rained today for the final test and no sputtering or stalling whatsoever.

ENGINE STALLS WHEN FIRST STARTED


Sounds like a vapor lock. If it's possible, try re-routing the fuel line to the injectors. That should help
