Engine problem please help
I have a 2002 toyota celica gt. I have lost a lot of power... it started out it would be a bit then kick in for the power. Now I have poor acceleration and when I hit the gas my my engine boggs and the rpms vary slowly rise. My engine boggs even in when not in gear. Any ideas?

I would try seafoam. I did it to my car a few months ago and I felt the difference; it was running better. Below is the "how to" video link on YouTube

I would also check the Air Filter.
Let me know if it helps.

remove and clean your throttle body and put a new gasket on, there is probably some build up over the years. i'd also put some fuel injector cleaner through it or possible put in new injectors depending on haw much money you want to spend.

you could also be due for a tune up
