Nope. And don't have a clue why it would do it. Sounds kinda like it could be a problem with your fuel.

hey, mine 04 celica did that too, it was the Vacumm Switching Purge Valve (the one in engine bay, not next to the gas tank). They don't have it sell at any auto parts, they only have the one down by the gas tank. The toyota dealer will order it from japan. costs about $100
