Definitely not a good situation for a lot of people. I myself lost power for a little over an hour (but I got other thoughts about that situation, & we'll save those for another time & place).


Yeah if you can't get from one side of the city to the other in 20min it's either because you hit ALL the red lights or a crash causing traffic to back-up. LOL.


If you're in the area again, hit me up. I'll try my best to show you around.
Of course that offer extends to anyone.


I stumbled into downtown without knowing it. only give-away were the parking meters. lol The duck-fat fries from Block 16 was probably my absolute favorite thing I found in Omaha. lol

I'm looking for another job as it is because management & company ownership here is probably the worst I've ever worked for thus far, so I doubt i'll be up there again, but in the weird off-chance that I do get deported back up there in the mean time, I'll holler. I know the next project they're sending us off to in about April is to Chicago.

The best part I've found of owning a Celica is a nice cold morning sunroof & windows open & the heat on high. * feels good man *
It's that perfect temperature mix.

There's a magical spot with my windows where the air comes in and swirls around behind my head but doesn't buffet my ear, and on a cool night I can put the heat on the floor on high with low blower and cruise around some country roads. Yeah. smile.gif

I got a PDF of testing for the ignition coil if you end up needing it to check the new coils are in spec. I'll put up a link when I'm.bsvk home.

kindasad.gif was it at least better? Probably the pickup coil in the dist but should check first, there's specs to check that in the PDF. But you gotta check it when it's actually failing or failed. The hardest thing to fix is something that's not all the way broken yet. Sorry my guess was wrong, I feel kind of bad about it. Or the new parts are usual **** quality. For sure need to check coil resistance on the new part tho.

So here's what happened on the trip home...

After Jordan (Thank You sir!) took me to the O'Reilly's warehouse in Naperville & then all the way back to Ottawa, installed the ignition coil & ignition control module. Started up good & revved fine, sounded like a car.

Started the trip home & 6-7 min down the interstate (about 1/2 way to Peru) it started acting up again! WTF! I was going about 77mph. Awhile down the road there was some construction so I slowed down to about 67 mph. The issue is barely noticeable at that speed, so I continued at that speed until Davenport were the issue starts to show itself again. If it gets bad enough the CEL will flash while it's happening but won't stay on.

So I drive to the big I-80 truck stop to fill up with gas. I idle at the pump for a minute & it hickups but it catches itself, continue to idle for not even maybe another minutes & it dies. So I Thought to myself, put some premium (along with a can of fuel system cleaner) in there what can it hurt. I let it cool off for about a hour. Get back on the interstate & I can still feel the surging/ bucking/ whatever the issue is. Its still doing it so I pull of the interstate at Grinnell, IA.

I let it cool down a few minutes. Well I got some brake clean maybe it's a vacuum leak, start car spray around vacuum hoses & stuff, nothing. Turn car off & I let the car sit maybe a total of 45min-1 hour. Well Imma just going to send it the rest of the way home. I get back on the interstate thinking to myself just go 65mph like you were before & the issue was barely noticeable/ non-existent. So I go about 65mph all the way to Council Bluffs, about 15min from home & no issues! Maybe the premium fuel & fuel system cleaner worked! INTERESTING! Well since I'm 15min from home, let's do a test. I tip into the throttle, not full throttle but maybe 3/4 & started doing it again! Let off to coast, tip into the throttle same damn thing. NOW it's doing it again! Flashing CEL when it gets bad. Go home pull into the garage idles decent. Turn car off.

I currently have to stop typing & get to work, I probably forgot a detail & will have to add more.

My pride is wounded that I guessed wrong and it cost you money. If you need to check hot parts resistance you can hear the oven to about 210, put parts in,btien it off, and let them heat soak for about 15 minutes then check hot resistance. It's possible it's not an ignition issue, but usually when a fuel pump fails it just stays bad. I'm glad you made it home safely though. Feel free to text me any questions if you want.

Should have just drove to your shop and took a week off work to fix it, lol.

Just from various searches it might be...
- Engine coolant temperature sensor
- Upstream and/ or downstream O2 sensors
- ECU

Haven't checked anything yet, possibly this weekend.

No I mean my work is in a bad place. I wouldn't like walk around at night a lot where I work and certainly would not trust a hotel nearby to not give me scabies and bed bugs.

Damn. That sucks Devin. I'm sorry your drive was so ****ty.

Have we considered a clogged up fuel filter? Maybe it takes time to pull the gunk up from the bottom of the filter before it starts to effect driveability....

Sorry also for missing the meet in general. Didn't want to be spreading pink eye with my kids that can't keep their hands to themselves.

I did purchase one but didn't install it because they kinda a cunt to do. Its for a '99 Camry which is a little bigger in dimensions (bigger is better right? lol), see if it fits good enough or not at all.

There's always another MidWest Meet to make it to.

Aye forgot to tell you, you're part of the Takata airbag recall. Check your VIN to be sure.

Tell the dealer "ever since" when it stalls driving home after the airbag.
