I have been having problem from day 1 got the car for $150.00 With 55,000 miles but can't seem to find out the problem. It'll start fine try to rev it up it'll some times rev up no problem other times it'll act like it only half power try to put in gear and drive it'll bog out and shut off. Restart runs rev it up a little and put in gear it'll move but keeps bogging down until it shuts off. Just put a new fuel filter and fuel pump thinking that'll be the problem but it's not list of all parts that been put on over the time of hunting this problem out etc, any idea let me know.


All new parts:
Fuel pump
Fuel pump sock
Fuel filter
Plugs
Wires
Crack position sensor
Ignition control module
ECM
Alternator
MAP sensor
Throttle body gasket

Hello, I'm Danny.

It sounds like you might have a defective, clogged, or weak fuel injector in the throttle body. I've attached picture steps below on how to change the throttle body fuel injector on your Celebrity. Keep us updated. Hope this helps and thanks for using 2CarPros.

Good morning,

I answered your other post on this issue.

I still believe that you have a bad torque converter in the transmission. It is locked up internally.

Okay, you confirmed it needs a torque converter. You need to replace the torque converter before going any further.

The transmission must be removed to gain access to the converter. I attached the procedure below for you to view.
