1991 toyota corolla gts, acceleration hesitaion

My 1991 corolla gts runs great when warm, and when i first start it; but while it warms up it hesitates tremendously when i accelerate. the hesitation is more severe the more i press in the gas. the problem only occurs between cold and normal operating temp. i've changed the spark plugs and the old ones weren't fouled in any way. BTW it is a 1.6L twin cam 16 valve fuel injected engine.

    I have the same problem. In the morning/evening when i'm driving to/from school my car jerks back and fourth almost like i'm pressing on the gas and releasing. But when the car warms up it goes away, this started happening about 3 weeks ago. Also my ac is only cold while i'm driving when i stop at a traffic light it gets hot, is this normal for '91 corollas?

    I had the same problem last winter. It went away in the summer and never came back this winter. I had considered changing the throttle position sensor or the coolant temp sensor??? but never got around to it. The car runs great now.

    My 1991 Toyota Corolla hesitates while stopped and it's getting worse. I just replaced the fuel pump and fuel bracket 2 months ago.

My 1991 Toyota Corolla drives fine and then suddenly it starts to hesitate.


mine did the same thing and it was oxygen sensor
since engine light came on there should be an error code
on computer.Get a diagnostic checker or take to a garage and have them hook uo to the diag connector. I bought a diagnostic checker few years ago and it has come in very handy
sure hope this helps!!

Acceleration problem


possibly camshaft position sensor in the distributor, or weak fuel fump starts acting up when warm, or throttle position sensor. heat has a effect on sensors and electrical components in some weird and hard to find ways.

Back firing is usually an indication of a timing issue

The timing chain is most likely worn & jumped a couple
of teeth or the distributor was installed wrong,if you recently
