Celica 1.8 St 7A-Fe Cold Start Problem

Recommended Posts

Hi

I have just bought a '98 Celica 1.8 ST and I love it. It's just had a new Battery but the car has not been driven by the previous owner for over 6- months. It started first time and I drove home without problems.

However, ever since it seems to struggle to start. It starts on the key but within seconds the idle dies and it stalls. If I restart and press the accelerator (slightly sticking in the up position) pedal down and hold the revs it warms up and idles and drives fine?

I've changed the spark plugs, air filter and topped up the coolant with anti-freeze for winter. Is this a common fault with this engine. Shoud I take it to my local Toyota dealer and risk a massive bill for investigating?

Please help

Christian

It's on fresh fuel?

Changed the Fuel Filter?

Following a set of new spark plugs, a new air filter and an Oil change she's been running like a dream. I also filled her up with Shell V-Power unleaded petrol as recommended by many owners. Thanks for all the help.
