Customer Question
I have a 2003...

I have a 2003 celica gt...the check engine light went on and know it keeps boging out

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

Stays on

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

Changed plugs and coil

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

When i gradually step on the gas its okay but when i gun it it bogs out and the more i step on the gas pedal the more it sounds like drowning

Have you got a code reader or have someone that can do this for you? Auto Zone will do this for free. The reason the light is on because there is a trouble code stored in the Ecu which will give us a direction to find the issue. When you have the code send it to me and we can proceed.
