2000 Toyota Celica Starting Issues

Asked by May 15, 2018 at 10:30 PM about the 2000 Toyota Celica GT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Alright I just bought a 2000 Toyota Celica GT. Has
185,000 miles. I'm having some issues. When the
car is warm the engine wants to crank before
starting for 3-4 seconds. It always eventually
starts. When it's cold, such as after sitting all night,
it fires right up. It also has a problem with
acceleration, not sure if this is related or not. When
accelerating rapidly it bogs the engine for a second
or two. If I ease into the throttle it's fine, but makes
it difficult to rev match.
