have you done anything to your car lately ie. new header or gaskets? or did you recently get new wires before they went bad the first time?

I am going crazy. I don't know what was wrong with my car. I changed the fuel filter,spark plugs, and starter. The starter went bad after the many failed attemps at starting it. After I installed new spark plug wires the car started right up.

The problem I have now is when I am in gear; the idel would be inconsistant and would want to stall. The only way I kept it runing was to keep my foot on the gas pedel. After four day of it not running, I have given up on this problem and continue to drive with the bad idel. I am still confused how all four spark plug wires went bad at the same time. Again now my car will not start. Earlier I was driving the car for 20 minutes with the A/C on and I noticed the temperature gauge a little above normal, but not to the point where it was over heating. So i turned off the A/c with the engine still runing and it stayed at this temperature. ( I did not want to turn off the car because there is something wrong with the plug that leads to the starter. Inorder for me to start the car agian i would need to hold the plug in while someone else turns the ignition key. ) After i turned the car off it did not start up again..


ok i think i cleared up what he said

now my question:

1) does the starter turn the engine over after?
2) what year is your celica? do you have the obd 1 system?
3) is your timing off?
4) any cel lights?
5) is your battery dead?
