Hi, I own a 97 Paseo convertible. I'm looking to sell, but before I do I want to understand what is wrong with it. When I drive in stop and go traffic and stop too many times in a row the car stalls out. The engine shuts off completely. When this happens I turn the car off the rest of the way and when I turn it back on the engine is good to go again until the next time the traffic gets thick. As long as there is no traffic the car can drive long distances with no issues. Considering I live in the SF bay area, I rarely have no traffic. I took it to a shop, but all the other mechanics I've talked to disagree with the conclusion. Hoping to find some ideas here before I spend a lot of money at a shop again. I'll be selling it and not sure if I should get it fixed before or after selling. Of course letting the buyer know of the issues if so.
I have a white 1991 Celica GT Convertible 2.2 automatic. Runs great, but has been in a garage for almost two years. Under 200k miles. Past history unknown - bought her from a less-than-straightforward lot. She's a classic next year, and I desperately want to keep her, but it doesn't appear my finances will ever let me finish restoring her. Newer canvas power roof, but plastic window shot. New front pads, brake lines, master cylinder, front tires, radiator. Original full-sized spare and jack Trunk hinge, automatic antenna, motor mounts need replaced. Oil leak from an undiscovered location. Key tip broken inside ignition - still works, but can't open trunk or doors with key. Key code still available at Toyota dealer. Interior in very good shape - replaced one knob on dashboard, center console lid hinge broken. Exterior in good shape, very little rust Hit a big truck. Core support & hood replaced, but missing some front trim at pop-up lights (still work) and black "Celica" trim on hood. Last I checked, these are still available at a Toyota dealer.
