Question about 2000 Toyota Celica

94 Celica GT, Fuel Problem?

The engine will start then stop in a few seconds. Then will not start for hours the start again and stop. I can get it to run by spraying starter fluid in the intake and it runs, so electrical is good. Timing light works on all plugs. Fuel pressure at the cold start injector, good. Cold start injector operates with 24vdc, good. I get no voltage at the connector of the cold start injector. What tells the injector to open? What is the next step to locate the problem? I am sure it is fuel because of the starter fluid test.

This is most likely going to be a control module (ECM), a relay wouldn't have this effect. Check to see if this model has a control module for the injection system, if not the problem may lie in the main ECM. If the car has these features, check the fuel kill switch (in case of crash switch), if this switch is malfunctioning it could cause the fuel pump to turn off after the initial start, and the security system, some have a fuel kill along with an electrical kill.

There are two things it can be the fuel pump or the injector so you need to check both of them.

The computer is what outputs that. So you want to check the wire at the computer and see what your getting. Has the motor been pressure washed or have any changes been done recently?
Thanks,

    You can test the relays as well, as I would. Though I would highly recommend if you don't have one that you pick up a factory service manual. I have one for my 85 mr2. It will tell you everything down to the nuts and bolts. You can purchase one off of ebay for quite cheap. If you need any further assistance locating a manual let me know.
    Thanks,

    I was informed that you requested a refund. I got no further input from you so I could not assist you any further? What was not satisfactory? Did you get the problem fixed?
    Thanks,

Could be a fuel issue, Start by changing the fuel filter, if that doesnt work you might want to drop the gas tank and check the strainer on the fuel pump and make sure the tank is clean.

You can try this.
Turn on the key and listen for the fuel pump to prime.
It will sound like a gentle hum. when it stops, turn the key off. wait a few seconds and do it again. Do this three or four times, but don't try to start it. after the third or fourth time you turn it off, try to start it. It may not be priming the fuel injectors fast enough.

Won't keep running


Hi

It sounds to me as though you have a case of excessive fuel pressure, which could be due to a faulty fuel pressure regulator or a blocked fuel return line.

I don't know whether or not there is a Schraeder valve on the fuel rail of your car (it looks like a tyre valve) but if there is then it may be worth connecting a fuel pressure gauge to it and observing the fuel pressure build up.

You could also disconnect the fuel return line from the fuel rail, push another length of rubber pipe onto the rail, hold the end in a suitable glass container, and then have someone start the engine whilst you gauge the fuel flow from the pipe. It should be a good steady flow, and, if the engine doesn't cut out with the return line disconnected then you know there is a blockage in the return line and you can make arrangements to blow it through.

Very best regards

Geordie
