Replaced coils/spark plugs now car dies within seconds of starting. Help!

Asked by Oct 27, 2015 at 03:26 PM about the 2001 Toyota Celica GT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I had two bad coils so I went ahead and
replaced them all along with new spark
plugs.   Now when I fire it up,  it sounds
great for 2-3 seconds than dies.  If I try to
rev it up,  it dies quicker.   I don't know
where to go from here, to fix it.

Just a wild guess but have you checked to make sure no vacuum lines or wires were disconnected when the coils and plugs were replaced?

check fuel pressure ,spark, if you have that whcih you should after new plugs then call a mechanic in.

If the car ran before changing the parts, then something you (the repairman) have done is the problem. Retrace your repair steps to see if something is unplugged or installed incorrectly.
