Question about 1990 Toyota Corolla

Toyota Corolla 1990, fuel injection.

When driving my car today it lost acceleration and I could no longer drive it. We took it home and found there was no spark coming from the dizzy. Any ideas on what could be the problem?

    Hi, my Toyota corolla 1990 does not run more than 5 mph, it just got a new Catalytic Converter, and instead of running faster it almost does not moves. I was told that it could be the gas filter, or the fuel injection, I do not know if it will be worth fixing it or not it has over 300, 000 miles. I am a single mom and at this moment I can't afford to put too much money into it, if it's something simple I will, what do you think? I do need my car so I could look for a job and move around. Thank You for your help! Patty

If there's really no spark from the distributor, perhaps there is water in it? WD40 used to be the favourite treatment for these things, didn't it?

Vehicle dies when coasting after acceleration, or when coming to a stop.

The first thing to try is to get a can of throttle body cleaner from Autozone or Walmart and clean the throttle valve and the idle speed control valve, they get get gummed up and that causes the annoying stall.

I would change the transmission filter and fluid first. It could be that your filter is old and stopping the transmission from working properly.

If a transmission fluid and filter change does not solve the problem, then it's time for a transmission rebuild or replacement. This can often happen if the car was driven improperly, such as sudden stops and starts, jamming the clutch into gear (in manuals), down shifting while the car is in another gear or from old age.

Ran out of gas 90 toyota corolla fuel injection

Sounds like air in the fuel line. Try turning the key ON and pumping the gas pedal (it may take 10-15 times) and then try to start the car. You need to force gas through the fuel lines to dispel the air it was pumping when the car ran out of gas. If it doesn't work the first time, let it rest and repeat by pumping the gas. Best of luck!
