Question about 1990 Toyota Celica
My 1990 toyota celica gts started to lose power, it would spit and sputter. When I take off its slow and if I go up a hill I lose power and speed. It runs fine once it gets to about 30-40 miles an hour. Going down a hill it runs fine. Back in Sept I had to have the timing belt replaces and since then I have had nothing but trouble. Before the power lose it was running hot, I had to replace a few hoses. Doesn't seem to run hot now but seems to be low on water somehow. The car now wont run no more than about 10-15 miles an hour if that. It takes forever to go in reverse, till yesterday (12-19) there was no problem with reverse. This problem started at the first of the week and had gotten worse (12-14/15)
This happened to me and yes it was caused by a timing belt i replaced it and guess what? My car took forever to pick up speed but once i hit 30mi than it was fine. So i found that one valve was bended so i had to rebuild the heads now its fine one way to find out if you have a faulty valve is by unpluging one of the spark plugs wires you are probably running on 3 cylinders thats why it has no power until it reaches some speed then its fine but when you stop and try to go again it does the same thing i recomed 4 you to go check the heads i bet thats what is wrong with your car. Youll end up paying arround 500 bucks! ! Parts and labor but its a. 1990 celica worth it? Yes its the best car i have ever owned!! And if it happens again i will fix it i love my celica! !
