Customer Question
My celica starts up...

My celica starts up but doesn’t want to stay idle.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Celica?

I mean no battery connection is good. I’d a 96 1.8L

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Celica yourself? What have you tried so far?

No a retired mechanic is doing it. But we have ruled out almost every thing. A meter said I may need a igniter or a crank shaft sensor
