1990 Toyota Celica

90 celica gt automatic 2.2 engine


idles up to 2000 then back down to about 1500 then back again



i have 2 videos i made of it


so far i.............

cleaned the egr valve(was sticking and full of carbon)

plugs have some carbon on them so i took them out and clened them too.....
they are bosch platinum plugs



a little history about it i bought the car with some rusted fuel lines in the winter i let it sit until this summer,fixed the fuel lines,it didn't have an air filter so i got one.....the idle was this way ever since i bought it........


check engine light was on i tested it flashed a code for the map sensor.....bought one used put it in now i get NO TROUBLE CODES

and it still idles funny......put it in drive or reverse it runs fine.......

Clean out the throttle body and the IACV and check the TPS

Right now I took off the intake manifold, fuel rail, iac motor, and throttle body

the manifold is being boiled out at a local shop for only $20

when I get everything put back together and cleaned I will post the results.
