If it ran good before the tuneup then you may have crossed a plug wire, or bad gap or wrong gap on sparkplugs, check the firing order fisrt, hope this helps.

Doing a tuneup on a 1991 toyota celica. replaced plugs, wires, rotor and distrubutor cap. just bought car and it was running rough - plugs were carbon fouled, continuity of wires was poor, so tuneup was...


Coughs and backfires is definitely a timing problem. Without a timing light..you can get the timing pretty close...Loosen the distributor bolt and move the distributor a bit one way and tighten the bolt slightly and try to restart the car. Note, if it starts or gets better..in other words by moving it the way you did, did it try to start easier or did the coughing and backfiring get worse. If not continue ever so slightly in the direction you moved it, till the car starts and and is running. If it gets worse moving it in the direction you started with, move the distributor the other way and do the same as listed above.

This is not the absolute 'Right Fix' so to speak, but will definitely get the car to a point where you should get it running.

fuel pump sounds to be problem, though I'd replace air cleaner first to rule it out cheaper than pump (pump may have internal filters that are blocked)

I have 1994 toyota celica it cranks but wont run. if i hold the gas to the florr it starts but runs really rough like only on one cylinder. what the hell is wrong with it?


First thing you want to check is your spark plugs. If they look bad replace them and while you're doing the plugs you might as well get to the spark plug wires also.

I changed the cap, rotor, plugs, and plug wires on my 1991 Chevy S-10, thanks to you I have the firing order right. Everything I changed appeared to be original equipment. But now it won't start at all....


is the battery dead if you threw the belt and drove on the battery it could kill it check for a short in the alternator it may have blown a fuse or fusible link in the positive wire

Rough Idle on 1984 Toyota Celica Supra


You said you replaced the plugs - did you use the toyota platinum plugs? I found out the hard way that even the platinum plugs from bosch or any other kind of platinum plug just doesn't work right. Yes, they are more expensive from toyota, but they can make a difference in the way the engine runs.

Could be the TPI Sensor or it might be a touch out of timing.
