#22 of 77 Any Suggestions
May 24, 2008 (7:14 am)
I own a 1990 Toyota Celica, which i love to bits!! No real big work done on it as of yet but was planning on starting to spend some money on it very soon. Only problem being I recently had a collision and people have been telling me once it is fixed I should try to get rid of it.
The crash not being my fault (someone ran a red light and hit me) has resulted in the car having damage to the front left passenger side of the car and thats all i know as of yet. I was hit at about 80kms/hr.
Anyone have any thoughts as to what I should do with it once it is fixed and or if once it is fixed it will be the same as before the collision?
Any thoughts would be much appreacited

#26 of 77 1994 toyota celica engine starting problems?
Aug 03, 2008 (8:19 pm)
What could be causing my car not to start? Currently my starter,battery, alternator, ignition connections grounds are good so what could be the problem could it be a certain relay fuse or which one? They have been checked and also my timing belt was checked but it has been difficult trying to determine what is the problem. It seems electrical but I am so confused and I do not want to loose my celica they I have been keeping up with the maintenance promptly. Could someone possibly give me advise on how to go about resolving my celicas starting problem or maybe a part or what can fix my starting problem?

My 1996 Celica did the same a couple of years ago. Would start sometime and would go totally dead on me. The dealer asked me to change the battery, which I did. Worked for a week (probably the new battery did the trick)... then stopped again. Once I got stranded in a rest area on the highway; the car wouldn't start. Well, I had to try a non-technical method... (normally not recommended). No, I did not push it. Fortunately, I was parked on a slope, so I shifted into neutral and let the car pick up some momentum, (in reverse, of course). With the ignition on, I engaged the reverse gear. The car started up. I reached home. Had a restless night, with multiple nightmares... First thing in the morning, went to Advance Auto, got a new STARTER, and replaced it myself (hour and half). The car starts like new till this day, not-withstanding its age (and miles:194,000).

With my 1994 Celica going dead I have been having restless nights with nightmares.Not withstanding its age( and miles 145,540). And I have always taken care of preventive care of my Celica. It is very heartwrenching . After your informative response because you could relate with my situation it seems that I may the same problem that you had with your 1996 Celica. I have not wasted anytime and I spoke to a 23 yr Toyota experience Master Tech Mechanic and he told me about the headlight test to do. I made sure the connections to the battery and the engine grounds are good. I made sure the battery is fully charged. I turned the headlights on and try to start the car. The lights stayed brite except when I attempted to start the car the lights dimmed way down. That mechanic told me about the contacts in the starter are known to go bad. Also my Toyota advisor told me about the need for a new starter(mind you my current starter is over 8 years old) So I have to think positive about it. Well today Wed. 10:00am A toytota recommeded tow truck company will be taking the celica to the toyota dealer for repair. I will keep you informed of my situation.
I greatly appreciate your helpful inforrmation which helped me sleep well last night.

The car runs and starts great, however after it warms up it wont start for 15-20 minutes. After it starts again it runs great again.

Well after my 1994 starting issue problem it happened to be the ECU (computer)so I had it replaced and it starts and runs good. I was told it may have been the distrubutor. I do not know much but I had to get it diagnosed at the toyota and they replaced the ECU (computer).
I would suggest maybe get a diagnose at Advance discount store since it starts or the dealer.
