Question about Toyota Celica

1 Answer

94 Celica 2.2 starts and stays at 5000rpm!

I turn my car on and it has been sitting for a couple months and it goes straight to 5000rpm and won't come back down. I don't leave it running for more then a few seconds so I don't mess up any valvetrain. What could it be? Thanks!

Check the exseleration cable from yr pedal to the throtle assembly most probably just sticky and got stuck, spray the spring on the pedal,cable(wher possible,usialy beginning and the end of it) the assembly on the throtle body that the cable gose 2 with some W40, that will most probably fix yr problem if note just open yr in take on the throtle body and clean it in side, than 100% yr problem will be solved.

SOURCE: lifter pecking

as old as the car is...I'm not surprised.   You have a sticking or worn hydraulic lifter.  You my try an engine flush followed by a oil change. Or totally ignore it.  Is your oil pressure good?

SOURCE: VSA problem. On three

If the car has not been for a routine full check up on the clocked mileage , I think it is only a possible clean up of all the wheels, the sensors that can help to eliminate this problem.
The other probable suspect can be the ABS itself acting erractic at times when there is a false sensing.Make sure all the wire lines to the sensors are good and tight.
Since the fault is turning up only at times, replacement with a suspicion is not a good solution as you might unnecessarily waste money for replacing good working spares.
So attempt the check up once again as you had done and observe the next time the fault occurs. Jack up all the wheels and check the brakes/ bearings once again.

I have a 94 toyota celica st that had airbags deployed before and had a wire fire now the wiring is fixed and now it won't start and shows a airbag light that stays on..

Apparently it wasn't fixed exactly correctly? I would take it back, and have them check it out, it all should be under warranty, hopefully?

Oil gauge on 91 Dodge Dakota suddenly running very high but plenty of oil

have a mechanic test the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge
it is more than likely that the electric sender unit has failed and is sticking internally
the tic noise could be a relay working from an intermittent power supply or bad ground

As gasoline sits idle for that length of time, it turns into shellac.
this in turn plugs up the orifices in the carb, use a good quality carb cleaner, or fuel injector cleaner as the case maybe. follow the directions carefully. You may have to do this a couple of times.
Good Luck

Sounds like you have bad gas. Gas goes bad after a couple months of sitting. I've gone through plenty of other options when trying to figure out this same problem, and it turned out to be the easiest problem of having old gas. Try running fresh gas straight into the fuel pump and see if it turns over then.
