1994 Toyota Celica Repair Question
Distributor problem??????? HELP!
Was the fuel pressure checked?
When it did not start, what was missing, ignition sparks or fuel?
Seems somebody is not checking the correct place or item.

HAVE YOU NARROWED IT DOWN TO
REMOVE PLUG WIRE AND SEE IF YOU HAVE SPARK.....BELOW IN MY LINK IS AN EZ WAY
FUEL TEST---SHOOT A 2-3 SECOND BURST OF "STARTER FLUID" INTO THE THROTTLE BODY....ATTEMPT TO START
DOES IT TRY/ SPIT/ SPUTTER/ NUTHIN' ?????
DO THE TESTS SEPARATELY WHEN YOU KNOW IT'S GONNA ACT UP (YOU KNOW HOW THAT'S GONNA GO!)
THIS MAY NARROW DOWN WHAT TO CHECK NEXT
OK...guess i left out some stuff...i THINK the fuel pressure was checked, but i'm not sure. Will ask tomorrow. Also, a new igniter and computer was put in, but that didn't take care of the problem either. I can't believe Toyota can't solve this one..we are ALL frustrated! I know there HAS to be an answer to this...why does it start the first time once, then take 15 tries the next time, then start on the first time later on....ARGGGH!!!!!
That is why you need to check what is missing when it could not start. It could be a relay that is working intermittently.

OK, guys, today we made the observation that the Celica starts beautifully when the weather is cold (cool like it was this morning, but when we have our "warmer" days in Texas,(like later this week) it starts acting up. Still considering putting back the old distributor back in because we're not sure it was ever really the problem. This is nuts. Still checking out other suggestions that you mentioned last time.
I have a 1998 Jeep TJ...chili pepper red, but I have also owned a 1990 Wrangler and a 1997....attached is a picture from Go Topless Day in Galveston this past May...
