2004 Toyota Celica Problems

Engine Won't Crank Due To Starter

If the vehicle will not crank over, the most common problem is the starter, which tend to fail at about 100,00-125,000 miles. Sometimes it is only the starter solenoid contacts, but often the complete starter (including solenoid) needs to be replaced.

Fuel Overflowing at Gas Pump and Check Engine Light

The Toyota Celica may develop an issue with the fuel tank inlet pipe causing fuel to spill onto the ground when fueling the vehicle.

The problem is a faulty 'check valve' in the filler tube, which normally prevents overfilling. The check valve is known to break off and fall into the gas tank. This can cause:

-OBD Trouble Code P0441

-Engine stalling or hesitation (Rarely)

The correction for this issue is to replace the filler pipe that leads from the gas cap to the gas tank

Excess Engine Oil Consumption

Sludge can build up in the engine because Toyota did not recommend frequent enough oil changes. Lexus will sometimes offer a discount on cleaning the engine if necessary. Owners who changed their oil every 3,000 miles did not experience these problems. This sludge build up can lead to excessive oil consumption.
