#19 of 51 What do u thing?
May 24, 2008 (7:17 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

#21 of 51 1989 Toyota Celica Convertible Check Engine Light Problem
Jul 28, 2008 (10:18 pm)
I have a 1989 Toyota Celica convertible with a 3SFE engine and manual transmission. This issue began in November 2007 when my Celica check engine light first appeared while driving. I have taken my car to an independent mechanic. Computer codes read either 25 (too lean) or 26 (too rich). My mechanic, in stages, has replaced the O2 sensor, the fuel filter, the spark plugs, the EGR valve, and has made numerous rich and lean air adjustments to a screw under an aluminum covered plug in the MAFM (Mass Air Flow Module). In total, So far, I have spent $915.84 on four separate occasions between 11/22/07 and 06/26/08. The Check Engine light continues to come on while driving, at intervals of 22 miles to 305 miles. What can be done to correct this problem? Otherwise, my Celica operates and drives normally. It has 117,300 original miles, no hesitation, or other indications of any problems while driving. Thank you for your help
#22 of 51 1994 toyota celica engine starting problem
Aug 03, 2008 (7:52 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 be a certain relay fuse? 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. Please give me advise oon how to go about resolving my celicas starting problem?
#23 of 51 My clutch will start to disengage on its own?
Oct 22, 2008 (6:16 pm)
I cannot figure this out, I push the clutch in and put the car in 1st , and if I let it sit for a few seconds in gear with the clutch pressed in it will start to disengage without me letting the clutch out (this happens sometimes in 2nd and happens a lot in reverse as well).
I just put a new clutch kit in the car and it made no difference, it did this before I replaced the clutch and it does it the exact same now after. I bled the clutch as well and it made no difference (the fluid is pretty dirty but I don't think that would cause this problem).
Anyone have ANY idea what this is? Please help! Thanks!

#26 of 51 The engine stall when you start to accelerate.
Sep 27, 2009 (10:59 am)
I have a problem with the engine stalling when you accelerate aftercoming to a stop. The engine idles good, but when you press the pedal to the floor the engine dosen't response. It dosen't make any noise and as soon as you let up on the pedal , you can hear it idling again. This problem dosen't happen all the time.
Also after tring to trouble shoot this problem, I developed another problem. I was looking at the throttle body. I removed a few vacuum line to see if I could get the engine to stall and put them back. There is a vacuum line coming from the valve cover going to the intake behind the throttle body. When I removed it the engine killed. After starting it back up, there was white smoke poring out the exhaust. I removed the oil cap from the valve cover and there was stong vacuum on it. I stopped the engine and removed the vacuum line again and there was oil in the line. Are these two problems related and how can I fix them?
