I have no idea what the problem might be, except that celica has a shit owner. I would give the celica to someone else and see if that does not fix things.

Tell him that either he can't drive too well, as far as shifting-he may not be used to it yet OR clean the Mass Air Flow Sensor-sounds crazy, but if it's losing power, that could be the culprit. Is his check engine light on?? If that doesn't work, he may need to take it to the shop to have it looked at (transmission or otherwise) thumbsup

If he doesn't have an after market air Intake, then have him replace his PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) valve. Costs a few bucks at Autozone.

I'd tend to agree with the mis-shift and lack of tuneup combined. Usually jerky car motions are a mis-shift problem. Get the tune-up before anything though and tell your friend to be nice to his car.
