Hi, I have a 1988 toyota celica gt 2.0 manual trans with 125,000 miles on it
I have had my car for a few months and everything was pretty good untill recently I was driving down the street and the car sputtered and died out I pulled off to the side of the road tried to start it and it reved up to about 1500 and then died. It did have a problem before starting up when on a slight hill but nothing like now.
I have it parked and tried to start it today it idled good for about 20 minutes then I attempted to rev it up a little hitting about 3000 and let off as I let off it died.I tried starting it again and it reved to about 1500 died down to about 1000 then died out then wouldnt start for a minuite then when I tried again after a few minutes it started shortley and died. I replaced the rotor distributor cap pluggs and wires a few weeks ago and I ran some fuel injector cleaner thrue it. This was all after it did the sputter on the hill when I tried to start it a while back. It seemed to help for a while but now its doint the sameand wgot worse I thought it might be a fuel problem so I bought a new fuel filter but when they went to replace it they said it looked new. A friend told me to try a throttle possitioning sensor but I wanted to see if you had any other ideas.
please let me know if you any idea what it could be thank you.
have the same problem?
