Problems staying running

I have a 2005 Toyota Corolla and it had a problem starting the other day like it was out of gas. I have checked to make sure i have fuel pressure, and checked the relay both are fine. Every now and then it will start but either dies immidiately or will run for a minute or two before dying, When it is running I can Floor it and it only goes to 1900 rpms. What else could be the problem?

    We tried to read the codes and the computer would only come back with an error. I did a little more research and called a dealer they said they had had a problem with the computers going bad and causing a no start. Because of that they had extended warranty to 8 yrs. 80,000 miles. Tow truck just picked it up to go get fixed all free of charge. My car was a 2005 Toyota Corrolla with the 4 cyl. 1.8L w/ 38,000 miles. Thanks for your help

    I am having this exact same problem! How do I find out more about the extended warranty? Do I just call the dealer and what do I say? Is it good for all states... I live in California. Any info is appreciated... thank you!

    Question for you: Is the Check Engine light on? And, if it is, have you had the vehicle hooked up to a scan tool to extract the DTC codes? If I had the codes, I could really help you out. To answer your question, with the info that you have given me so far, I am leaning towards a throttle control motor issue. If you car is less than 3 years old, and less than 36,000 miles, it is still under warranty. Please advise about the check engine light and the codes, if you have them. Thanks.

I have a 2005 Corolla and it seems to be stumbling on acceleration. It also runs roughly at times. appeox 70K miles. Any thoughts? My first thought was fuel filter, or injectors.

The check engine light is on but the computer comes up with an error. We called Toyota and they have been having problems with the computer so they extended warranty to 8 yr. 80,000 miles thanks for all your help

My 1993 corrolla won't start with out stepping on the gas and it won't stay running unless you stay on the gas, but the check engine light isn't on.


check to make sure the cold start injector is operating. Then look for intake air leaks and vacuum leaks.

Toyota corolla 2005 start fine but no accelerate, it stays in 1000rpm I step in the pedal and dont accelerate what it could be?


Take the battery loose and this resets the computer. Check the massflow intake for any leaks or damage as this will confuse the computer...this is very important and I hope this fixes the problem.

Corolla kicks/jolts when shifting gears.


I am trying to understand your problem. Check engine mounts. Have a driver in the car, hood open. Start car, foot on brakes, shift from park to reverse and back again. Shift through all gears, look for unusual engine movements around engine mounts area. Left foot on brakes, press gas in drive and reverse;watch for excessive engine movements. Be careful as you perform these steps. You may also want to check drive axles. Keep me updated.

What are the causes of check engine light? Can check engine light affect the auto transmission system?


Have you had your air filter changed or checked recently? If you've had it done somewhere other than the dealership that could be your issue. There is a sensor that connects to the enclosure around the air filter. If it is not correctly reattached after service it will cause the check engine light to come on.
Even if you do discover the issue and correct it, the check engine light will persist for server times you turn the engine on and off but usually by the 3-4th day it will turn off on its own. If you think it's mote serious, take it back in for service.
I can't tell you how many times I've taken my Highlander in for service at a non- Toyota dealer (bc I travel for work) and the check engine light comes on bc they check the air filter and neglect to reattach the sensor. Hope this helps.
