Toyota celica shuts off, wont start

Im driving down the road and realize im not accelerating. i look up and the battery light is on, like the car was off. so i pull over and find that my oil filter has come off. replaced that and still wont start. i took a computer to it and it gave me a few errors like crankshaft position sensor and camshaft position sensor. i know how to replace them but im wondering if it could be anything else.

    well it doesn't turn over, it just clicks, but yeah, there was still a little bit of oil in it.

I hope it's your timing belt/ chain, and not a blown motor. They don't go far with no oil. The fact that it turns over is a good thing. Was there any oil left in it?

If it doesn't turn over for sure you have a blown motor. As the other guy said, engines don't go far without oil. pistons will get sized up in cilinders causing the crank to do not move so the flywheel, that'a why it is not cranking it all. try to grab a braker bar with a 17 mm socket and try to manually turn the crank (make sure the transmission is in neutral position) if it still doesn't move then u know u need another engine. good luck.

Radio quit playing now car wont start cannot shift into nutrial

The first thing to check is the battery, if the battery is dead try jump starting it with another car or use another battery, if it then starts you should have the alternator tested, most autoparts stores do this at no charge, it may be that the alternator is not keeping the battery charged.

Sorry about your celica, I do realize these cars are **** but none the less they are fixable. Disconnect the battery and wait 30 sec. Reconnect then turn the ignition to the on position allow the alarm 2 hrs to reconfigure itself and then start the engine. Sequence is now complete.

Battery wont charge

hi check the charging rate at your battery terminals under load [lights on heater on wipers etc] if drops below 13v with these on its to low if you have checked the output of the alternator at the alternator it should read not under 14v and not over 14.5v i think you will find the regulator is in the alternator or on the outside of it but if your readings at the battery are correct test your battery with a voltdrop test or if the batterys flat take the tops off get someone to keep the key in start position and see if the cells are bubbling it only takes one is so replace the battery yates210456
