I have to keep pumping accelerator to keep it running. Also when going down the road the rpm's fluctuate.
Where are the sensors I need to replace?

Is the engine light on? I mean come on man, you don't even tell us what kind of Celica it is!

You need to provide more info than whats given.
My car recently gave me trouble starting while hot. Would be fine when cold, but once it was warm, id have to hold the throttle open a bit for it to idle okay, and then once it idle smooth I could let off and it would be alright. Turned out to be Coolant Temp Sensor.

If your idle is fluctuating up and down, it could be IACV related.

Sorry,I thought i had put the info in .
It's a 1994 Celica with the 1.8 five speed.
Yes engine light is on.
Yesterday I sprayed sea foam into throttle body and wiped out out . It seemed to have helped a little. It would idle fine ;but when holding accelerator steady, (engine constant ) the tach would fluctuate.
This morn it will not crank without pumping accelerator. Then it still dies. I had put a new distributor about 3 months ago. Ran fine. Also changed fuel filter; thinking that was the problem...
Thanks again..

Have you tried checking what the code is for? That likely will point you in the right direction.

I have tryed jumping TE1 to E1.....Only blinks five times then starts over.
Did not get any code.
I am sure I'm not doing something right
