1990 Toyota Celica accelerating problems

Hi!
My Celica is not accelerating smoothly. I've had the spark plugs changed, but that didn't help.
Could it be the carburetor or fuel injection system?
I'm going on a road trip in 3 days and don't want any trouble.
Cheers,
Jean

    I have same problem with my Toy. I was told the EGR valve is bad. Removed the valve, it was loaded with build-up(carbon??). Tried carb cleaner, was not a fix, need to replace?

I had this same problem. I replaced the spark plugs and that worked for awhile, but then the problem came back. I ended up replacing the distributor and rotor as well as the spark plug wires and that fixed it. Supposedly old spark plug wires don't work as well and you don't get enough spark.

One side note, I still have trouble accelerating with the AC on.

When my car had this problem it was frayed cable. The frayed wires can catch on the inside of the cable jacket or at the end of the cable. That would be my suggestion.

Hi,
Have you ever replaced the shocks / struts? Are you sure your tire does'nt have a bump spot or out of round? I usually will swap the tires front to back to see if the vibration or bumping moves, good way to tell if the tire is bad. I've gotten some pretty poor tires before, some do have factory flaws that will cause that. Shocks will cause that also. Sway bar pins / joints that are worn can cause that also.

Toyota celica 1990 5sfe auto


The 5sfe is notorious for distributor problems. You'll get correct resistance readings on the primary and secondary coils, but your spark looks weak. Should see a bright blue spark with an audible POP when sparking. On some 5sfe engines, the coils are located in an all-in-one pacakage inside the distributor. You'll know if you have this one if the only large spark plug type wires connected to the distributor cap count 4 and go to the 4 cylinders. There will not be a center wire coming from a coil. This is the distributor that has issues. I am on my third one now. Same symptoms every time. I know exactly what to change when it happens, and it fixes it every time. Luckily, It's only about $95 if you do your searching well enough. Good luck
