Having problems with your 1987 Toyota Celica ?

1987 Toyota Celica won't start.

\015 I have a 1987 Toyota Celica. The transmission had stop working a while ago, but I would still crank it frequently, up until a year ago. The other day I tried to crank the car but it keeps turning over but will not start. What could be the problem, how can I get it to start, without taking it to a mechanic, because like I said the transmission is not working, and until I am ready to get that fixed I don't want to have to tow it anywhere.(Note: I did notice that the gauge on the dash board said empty so I put in about one gallon of gas, but it didn't move so apparently something is wrong with the fuel gauge. Could this be the reason it won't crank. If so, how do i get the fuel gauge to work.)\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 14-09-2020

Answers :

Make sure its gettin spark, fuel, and air.. in any piston drivin engine there are four strokes...intake(air and fuel are sucked into the compression chamber) compression(where the intake stroke has hit bottom dead center and started back up, compressing the air and fuel) powerstroke(at the top of the compression stroke the spark ignites the compressed air/fuel and slams the piston down hence "power stroke" and last but not least Exaust(once the powerstroke has hit bottom dead center "bdc" it then begins its return to the top pushing out the exaust gasses) and then the cycle repeats itself..
