Question about 1996 Toyota Celica
While driving along at any speed , it just looses power and literally stalls. It could take some swinging over before it starts. The engine management light only comes on sometimes. It doesnt seem to be a fuel problem. It happened again yesterday and i thought it seemed to be misfiring while i was turning over. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Cheers. G.C
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.
