1997 Celica Idling and stalling issues

Asked by Oct 17, 2016 at 09:18 PM about the 1997 Toyota Celica GT Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello all,

I have 1997 Celica GT.  During the hurricane here I went to move my car
closer to my house and it stalled as I was backing it up and would not start
again.  I just left it till the next day and it started up perfectly.  Now the car
acts like it wants to stall at idle and seems to have a hard time receiving
gas when acceleration (randomly not all the time).  Also the car will seem to
rev up when it is neutral (1500 to 2000 rpm).  Tonight it died on me at the
store and would not start engine turns over just doesnt catch.  Called AAA
a hour later I tried starting it and it started fine  No check engine light, and
had the codes ran anyway and there is nothing there.  I have checked for
vacuum leaks and there is none.  I am being told the TPS could be the
issue but I am not getting any codes for that.  Any ideas.
