Air, spark, fuel,and timing are things you should check. Youve changed the plugs and fuel filter. Try air filter next if you havent already, distributor cap+rotor, and ALL plug wires. This will be the cheapest place to start before looking into a certified mechanic. Also check the timing if you have a timing light. Gap the plugs to manufactures specifications.

Were the spark plug gaps set properly with feeler gauges if they were put in straight from packet they need to be set to correct gap which could cause miss firing or it is possible the leads were not put back on in correct order and probably a good idea to reset the timing if you do not have a timing light pop into mechanic its a 5min job an honest mechanic at worst would charge you $10 .00 to do timing this would make a huge difference when starting of a morning hope this helps thanks glenn

Toyota hilux pick up D4D has a hard start in the morning but ok after the first start, kindly advise


Have a compression test done to determine the engine condition. With the hard start and oil usage it points to a worn rings and a lower compression pressure than is required.

My 1991 toyota celica shakes all the time when its on. what could be the problem?


It could be worn motor mounts, and/or worn transmission mounts. Does the engine run smooth with no misses? If so, have someone start the car, foot on brake, and rev the engine up and down whil you watch the engine/transaxle. If the engine jumps when it is goosed, or vibrates a lot, it is worn mounts.
Good luck.

Rough Idle on 1984 Toyota Celica Supra


You said you replaced the plugs - did you use the toyota platinum plugs? I found out the hard way that even the platinum plugs from bosch or any other kind of platinum plug just doesn't work right. Yes, they are more expensive from toyota, but they can make a difference in the way the engine runs.
