Asked by Jun 09, 2012 at 02:45 PM about the 1987 Toyota Celica GT Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My son has a 1987 Celica Gt that when you let off the gas and the rpm drop down, the engine keeps dying. We recently changed the Distributor Cap, Rotor, Plugs and plug wires because that is what the mechanic was recommending. Still same issue, ideas?

Clean the throttle body, look for vacuum leaks, maybe a bad throttle position sensor, check fuel pressure.
