My car startso but won't run for longer than 2 minutes. It's a 5 speed manual.

Asked by Nov 19, 2015 at 11:19 PM about the 1994 Toyota Celica GT Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I've had my car for a couple months now. Here
recently it stopped running. Replaced the fuel
pump, filter, and air sensor.
It starts up fine most of the time, but won't stay
running very long. If I keep my foot on the gas it
stays running longer than it would if I just let it idle.
No check engine light.
Not sure what else could be causing it to just die,
it's not sputtering like it's out of gas it just shuts
off. If I drive it and leave it in 3rd gear on the turn
when I press the gas again I do think get a
response from the car. The rpm gage doesn't move
the car doesn't idle up, nothing. I then push in the
clutch to downshift and the car dies.
I'd appreciate anything that could help me at this
point. Love my car and I want to get it running

You may have leaking injectors or may need a good cleaning, check the pressure at rail when the car is cold and then hot..
