Mine does kind of the same thing. all i do to fix mine is there is a pretty big rubber hose-like thing connected to the airfilter. when mine isnt connected all the way it does that but as soon as i re-connect it, it works fine.

Hi, I recommend you check for vacuum leaks. There may be a big one somewhere, like in the brake booster.

Please see my tip at . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

Low idle/no acceleration.

hello, it could that the timing belt is worn and slipped on the pulleys so I would go there first and make sure the cam timing is aligned and inspect the timing belt.

Engine cranks but won't turn over. Almost like its out of gas but isn't.

Sounds like you need to have your fuel pump serviced.

92 toyota celica whirling sound

Without hearing it, it is hard to tell. But, I would first be looking at the idler pulley bearing, they have been known to fail; and make noise. Remove the idler pulley, and spin it manually. If it feels rough, and makes any noise, it is bad.

Your diagnosis is correct. The check valve in the fuel pump is letting the gas drain out of the line from the injector rail, and cranking for a long time then starting is indicative of this. Replace the fuel pump.

1990 Toyota Celica accelerating problems

I had this same problem. I replaced the spark plugs and that worked for awhile, but then the problem came back. I ended up replacing the distributor and rotor as well as the spark plug wires and that fixed it. Supposedly old spark plug wires don't work as well and you don't get enough spark.

One side note, I still have trouble accelerating with the AC on.
