Asked by Jan 23, 2016 at 07:47 PM about the 1995 Toyota Celica GT Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Ive got a 95 toyota celica. I recently blew the
radiator on her. He hoses froze. So we replaced the
radiator, hoses, and thermostat. Now shes still
over heating. Also i took her on the freeway
lastnight she was very rough on the acceleration. It
was like she would back off the pick right back up
almost emediatly. Kinda like a fast roller coaster
going up a steep hill...can some one help me?

check the oil. if its milky color then you blew a headgasket. you did the radiator hoses and thermostat id probably do the waterpump and another thermostat. the poor acceleration could be a clogged fuel filter or misfire in the plugs. when did you last preform a tune up? (plugs,wires, cap and rotar, oil change, air and fuel filter)
