couple of problems in car...
1. for some reason now my car starts not as fast as it used to start... what might be the problem? i was thinkin about cleaning fuel system or changing sparks... anyone know what might be the problem?

2. ok, went to do an allignment couple of weeks ago because my car was kinda going to the right all the time...they said that the previous owner must've hit a curb or something and now front tires dont line up...basically the axle is moved to the right a bit...this probably wont be covered by extended warranty? and any ideas on how much it would cost to fix it? i know it all depends, but how much would a job like this cost usually? thanks.

For #2, if the previous owner caused the damage, and you bought it certified (if you did, that is), then it should definitely be covered by the warranty.

#1.) How long have you had the car? It has been my experience that once Toyotas begin to break in more, and get older they just start a little slower. Mine does it, and our Solara does it as well. smile

#1. Try a tune-up with the injectors cleaned and all that. Maybe an engine flush with some real good oil like redline might help with start ups.

#1. Clean youre MAF Sensor, temp probe, make sure the Air Filter is clean. Clean throttle plate, valve inside throttle plate (check install guide, I believe it's IAP valve)

Also, make sure your battery is good, and get a grounding kit.

Other than that, Celicas take a while to turn over, especially GTS,
