my new car I got is a 2000 celica Gt-s 6 spd 1.8L. 4 cylinder engine 2zzge and it starts but then after about 5 or 10 mins it sputtered then shuts off. Can't start it again for another 20/30 mins. Check engine light ain't on and i replaced the ecm......? The idle also goes up and down sometimes when it does run as if some is revving the car but no one is. Please help me. O.o I'm not getting rid of it. I'm determined to fix it and continue to keep my dream car. I just want to know how to fix my dream car so i can drive it without trouble.

or limp mode, because the O2 sensor is stuffed. Do a top to tail check on the sensors, plugs, etc. Buy a $15 OBDI/II car scanner like an ELM 327 and have a look at what codes the computer has come up with, look up Google an voila, you're an expert.

 

Hate to tell you, but a 2000 model car ain't ever gonna be a dream car. Moving parts and friction will never let a car mend itself, expensive intervention is the norm.

Indeed, ELM 327 is a must (I got one as well). Wouldn't the CEL be showing if it was running limp mode?
