The Celica's 22R engine is carbureted so if you stop too fast the fuel can rush to the front of the intake manifold and starve the rear cylinders. In extreme cases the engine will run rough or stall. You might want to check the carburetor adjustments to make sure that they aren't contributing to this. You might also want to moderate your decelerations; it is really easy to slow down fast enough to stop the engine (I've done it at 65 MPH to avoid a ticket!). The 22R engine also has a spark advance system that is controlled by a combination of vacuum from the carburetor and a centrifugal counterweight system inside the distributor. You might want to check these in case they aren't adjusting properly to the engine's deceleration.

    If this problem exists at high speeds (like 60MPH to 75MPH) the U-joints in the drive shaft could be to blame, but the 81 Celica also has a "center balance bearing" in the middle of the drive shaft (essentially a center mount to the car's floor), and it only has a u-joint behind it - not in front of it. If any of the engine or transmission mounts are damaged it can wear out the center bearing prematurely. Sadly, the Celica also had eight mounting specs for this part so if you just want to replace the drive shaft it may take a lot of work to find one that fits, HOWEVER Toyota's factory repair manual does include detailed instructions on how to rebuild all of these parts if you can ground your car for a few days.

Hi. I will be glad to provide assistance to you, with the hope that I will get a FixYa rating from you for my advice.

My experience leads me to tell you to check the rear driveshaft u-joint. The way that you describe this would be a worn or seized u-joint situation. Get it checked; I'll bet that that is your issue.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance.

Your brake caliper and/or brake hose is hanging up not allowing fluid pressure to release. Most likely your brake rotor is already warped from excessive heat also. Replace caliper(loaded or unloaded) and hose ,bleed brake system and you're good to go.

Hi,
Have you ever replaced the shocks / struts? Are you sure your tire does'nt have a bump spot or out of round? I usually will swap the tires front to back to see if the vibration or bumping moves, good way to tell if the tire is bad. I've gotten some pretty poor tires before, some do have factory flaws that will cause that. Shocks will cause that also. Sway bar pins / joints that are worn can cause that also.

Check 5 things Balance, (including road force that checks the integrity of your rims).
Tires if they are cup, they vibrate the vehicle at high speed.
Wheel bearings for movement. Tied rod ends for looseness,
If you brake and rotors pulsate, those rotors will create vibration at high speed.

Without feeling the vibration, it is hard to speculate, but, my experience here is this: you may have a bad rear wheel bearing. It is covered for 5 years/60,000 miles by Toyota

Front end vibration


on both my Camrys, i had this problem. You could really notice it when you were driving down the road going 40-60 mph and punch the gas - car would vibrate, let off the gas - vibration stops, punch the gas - car vibrates...... On both, it was the CV joints. It is much easier to just replace the drive axles (with the new cv joints and boots already installed). For my last replacement, i think thy were only around $65 each.
