Question about 1996 Toyota Celica

1 Answer

1996 celica gt4

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.

it sounds like you have overheating problem. check the radiator fan speed and direction it turns, also check your thermostat it might be taking too long to open. incorrect timing can also cause overheating.

My 06 KIA Rio while driving about 30 mph lost 1/2 the power and check engine light started flashing along with what sounds like a misfiring. Sounds close to stalling when I pulled car over and stopped.


Not surprising when a 4 cylinder engine looses a cylinder or two.
You would need to have someone scan the computer for trouble codes and proceed from there. The codes should tell you which cylinders lost power.

It could have overheated. run out of gas. stayed locked in high gear and stalled as it stopped. You did'nt say if it would restart? You did'nt say what engine? It can have a 2.4 liter 4 cyclinder a 3.0 liter V6, A 3.3 liter V6, or a 3.8 liter V6. It can have a 4 or 5 speed automatic transmission and the 4 cyclinder can have a manual transmission as well. It can be air condidtioned and problems with it can stall the motor. the battery can be low or dead and thiers not enough power to run the brake lights and the fuel pump both so the engine shuts down. It might restart if you turn off everthing and certainly the defroster and anything that uses electrical power.

Have you checked your fuel filter or fuel pump as these can cause your engine to to shut off, but there usually is some sort of warning, but not always.

1988 Bronco 2 stalling out.


have te ignition module and stator been replaced? that is the common cause of this, and yes the engine being out of time can cause this stall out, when you time the engine remember you must remove the timing shorting bar at the distributor connector to the TFI ignition module or the timing will be severely retarded

Had a problem with my daughters Kia Rio, it would tend to loose power and would not accelerate easily, tried everything and it turned out to be the feed cables for the fuel injection which run at the rear of the engine along the baulkhead, which were streched ..Had to rewire .

some cars have this problem when the intake manifold is loose or drawing air or the roteror cap may be defect, to check your manifold ,with a cold running moter spray a bit of starter spray (with eather) along the intake manifold , if it's leaking the moter will increase in rpm.
