Since I would usually say go get an OBDII scan, the no-start makes that difficult. But you might consider buying your own scanner, that can be had from Amazon for $50. But then you have to wait. If you have other transportation in the meantime, it's a good tool to have. Or you can rent one, maybe even borrow from Auto-Zone or O'Reilleys. But there are many things that will cause a no-spark condition, including the cam and crankshaft position sensor. Check fuses, look in owners manual. If you don't have your manual, you can download it at:

Your Celica has the 1.8L 1ZZ FE engine, same engine as Corolla. It has coil-on-plug system. Each spark plug has it's own coil. Check fuse #35. This is up under dash drivers side. A bit of a pain to access... click for full screen

Both, I guess. I replaced the OCV.


I had it tested, said the same both time. OCV, replaced that check engine light is on. Reading same thing.
