I have an '02a 2002 Toyota Celica GT with a newly rebuilt engine (ran out of oil and threw rods) but problems still persist. I was told by the mechanic to allow myself a 500 mile break in time of not accelerating over 55mph, to give the engine time to "learn to work together again" with all of the new parts.

Here's the problem(s): -It takes about 20 minutes after cranking it up for it to be ready to drive; if I put it in gear before it smoothes out it'll immediately stall out. Why? I've put 900 miles on it since the rebuild. Is this normal?

  • It takes about 20 minutes after cranking it up for it to be ready to drive

  • if I put it in gear before it smoothes out it'll immediately stall out. Why? I've put 900 miles on it since the rebuild. Is this normal?

  • a couple weeks ago it started shaking EXTREMELY bad if stopped while in gear

  • it would also have absolutely no power at take off (barely gets across the road from a dead stop) but seconds later feels like it gets a burst of speed that causes the engine to rev loudly and RPMs to rise to about 5000.

-A couple weeks ago it started shaking EXTREMELY bad if stopped while in gear, it would also have absolutely no power at take off (barely gets across the road from a dead stop) but seconds later feels like it gets a burst of speed that causes the engine to rev loudly and RPMs to rise to about 5000. My mechanic changed out 2 coils and replaced PVC valve and attached hose. Problem still occurs, although the shaking/revving seems slightly less so?

All fluids are good, we've started going by process of elimination to find the problem but it's getting very expensive. Anybody have ANY idea what could be going on?

newly rebuilt engine, long warm-up & severe shaking
