Question about 1990 Toyota Celica
Have changed all spark plugs and wires,distrib.cap,rotor, with no correction. Also, found oil getting into distr.cap. Having distributor replaced but mechanic not convinced this will solve problem. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.I have the same problem with my 1990 Celica GT with 2200 cc motor. Has new plugs, wires, rotor and cap. Mechanic pulled distributer and replaced O ring but there was no oil inside and everything looked good Can't really tell which cylinder/s are misfiring. Valve cover and tube seals were replaced as there was some oil leakage. OK now. No misfire codes on the computer? though mechanic says back then it wasn't very sophisticated. He says drive it until it gets really bad or dies then maybe he can figure it out.
First, have you checked that all plugs are firing and that the firing order is correct? Those are easy things to miss. Otherwise, it sounds like the engine is out of timing, so check the timing belt and marks make sure the belt has not jumped time at all. Also, I believe your problem is the second half of the paragraph, so this is what I am basing my response on. Is the car backfiring at all? If it is then it would point further to the timing belt.
