Question about 2002 Toyota Celica

1 Answer

My 2002 toyota celica is slow to build up power when i start the engine, it take's 4-5 seconds before the engine runs normal and i can drive off. When i start it it feels like its about to cut out or if i try to drive off it will cut out, i don't think its the battery because i got a new one 20 months ago. This seems to happen when the engine is cool. It just feels like the car can't get power for the first few second's,And it seems to be disimproveing, Why is this?

2002 celica no heat /overheating


I doubt that the belt is the problem as you will be have problems with the charging and probably the air con. The most likely problem would be the thermostat. Thermostats have two purposes, firstly they stop water circulating when the engine is cold so that it can reach operating temperature quickly (which also gives you warm air quicker in the morning). Secondly it regulates the speed that the water circulates. If the coolant is circulating too quick then it wont stay in the radiator long enough to be cooled therefore causing the engine to overheat, the air con turns on a thermostatic fan to increase airflow so the cooling will improve that's why the temperature "returns to normal". You will find on colder days the temperature will drop "lower than normal" with the a/c on. It's worthwhile changing the thermostat as you will find that your car will actually run a bit more efficient on fuel. Also check that the fluid in the cooling system is proper engine coolant, that will help considerably with the proper cooling of the engine not to mention reduce corrosion of parts in the system which can be very expensive to replace.

2002 Toyota Celica with a strange shifting problem.


I had the same problem, replacing you thermostat should do the trick, i spent 8.99 on a new thermostat and 99 cents on a seal. For some reason engine temperature affects the transmission shifting. Good luck

2002 Toyota Celica with a strange shifting problem.


Automatic transmission are complex systems. The shifting of gears is based on a number of things like bands, speed, acceleration, deceleration, manifold back pressure, RPMs, temperature, etc.
Sometimes the electrical ground connection for the transmission can become corroded which causes poor shifting.
Since you are getting an error code, you should get a readout for it. Many auto supply store like Advance Auto will loan a meter for you to get a readout. Call up some stores to find one.
