Sounds like a timing issue. The best thing would be to pull the trouble code from the computer since the check engine light is on. If you do not have access to a code reader then start by checking the timing order and the spark plugs. If these are OK then check the distrubutor cap and rotor. Check the cap for cracks and corrosion. If everything is still good, then you may need a camshaft position sensor if the car has one. If the car is not equiped with the sensor, you may want to find a new or used distributor.

Car having prob starting, having to jump start it. Got an ignition unit but it was not that. When driving my 17yr old celica gt4 it feels like it is losing power

There are lots of issues that might relate to the engine not firing and must be checked. So start by checking on the fuel, the fuel filter, the fuel delivery.
next check on the firing , the HT coils the spark intensity. Check the coils and the timing of the spark.

I have a '03 Toyota Celica GT-S with a annoying mis-fire. Started small by replacing all spark plugs - nothing. Replaced the MAF sensor - nothing. Took it to a authorized toyota shop & checked...

Replaced the MAF sensor - nothing. Took it to a authorized toyota shop & checked compression which check out good and put the computer on. Computer read mis-fire on cylinder 1, and then multiple misfire (like it would jump around). We went ahead and replaced the fuel injector on cylnder 1 - did not solve problem as when we hook the computer up, misfire seemed tp stay at idle and seem better when running high RMP, but check engine light is on as it never went away. Went ahead and replaced the coil pack to cylinder 1 - nothing. what am i missing?

bet it is the distributor. I did the Stanza that I have and it was oil in the distributor. It would not ahve been caused by too much oil as a half of a quart is not going to do anything to the car. Remember, if you overfill the oil by over a quart there is a chance of the crank whipping it up into a foam and the air bubbles would trash your bearings as air won't lubricate the engine. Just take the distributor apart and see if it has oil in it.
