Question Celica stalls In Neutral

Hi all and anyone that can help.

I have a 1991 Celica 5sp that seems to be having trouble maintaining RPMs in order to shift into 1st. This doesn't seem to be a problem upon initial startup, but, after driving for a while, maybe coming to a stop light or something, I can't get the engine RPMs up high enough to get the car into 1st without stalling. Once I finally do, it shifts fine, but will occassionally have a problem getting RPMs up again when I stop. It is an intermittant problem, but an annoying one (Who likes to stall???). So far, I have replaced the Fuel filter, and fuel pump.

As a side note, I found the battery dying recently, for no apparent reason, even after a charge. So I have replaced that, as well. Its so much worse when your car stalls, and then you don't have enough battery power to start it up again...

Thanks
Chzdg

The battery dieing was most likely from you stalling then restarted. that can kill it hella fast. but your alternater could be going bad if it countiues after the new one is in. now as for the stalling im not sure on i know a little more about eletrical and audio then engine. but i am learning. i would try dowing a whole system flush on ur oil, coolent, transmission, and fuel systems.

There you have it. It may not be exactly correct, but it's close.

Okay, let's go with the concept that you're not dumb. It's a stretch, but we'll try it. Tell us this Einstein. How is "dowing a whole system flush on ur oil, coolent, transmission, and fuel systems" going to cure or even affect his drivability concerns? The clock is ticking.

BTW, use of the FU smilie is proof of sub-normal intelligence. Your turn Twinkie.
