I Have a 1997 Toyota Celica w/2.2 engine.I am experiencing problems with it cranking but not sustaining idle or running. The code pulls up as anopen/short circuit in the igniter system. Prev. Repair reccomedations had me change the idle/air cont. Valve, the dist. Cap/rotor and plug wires and the igniter ohms out good versus a new one. Is it more likely the distributor, the ign, coil or the TPS breaking down or something else altogether?

Rasmataz, The EGR as well as the VSV have been changed already. The PCV is fairly new. The MAF, TPS, Ign. Coil and Igniter tested good as of Tuesday 7/12/11. The code that continually comes up as I said is calling a short or open circuit in the Igniter. Any other clues?
