Question about 1996 Toyota Corolla

Corolla 96 motot starts to cut and/surge in and out

My 96 original motor. It drives great with the exception of when accelerating, at 3500 RPM the motot starts to cut and/surge in and out. If I back off of the accelerator to abou 3200 rpm the motor performs as always. Now it can do it all the time and not at 3500 rpm like in the beginning. any idea where to start and look.
I have tried the following and still no solution: There is no MAF on this years model.

changed spark plug wires
changed spark plugs
changed rotor
changed rotor cap
tried 2 different whole distributors
cleaned the fuel injectors
by passed the egr valves
even unplugged the car starter before these test in case it was a problem
Gas filter has been changed

Firstly remove the inlet fuel line at the filter and and blow down line with a compressor ,removing fuel cap first,if this doesnt work then it could be fuel pump pressure of air flow meter ,but iam often wrong with this sort of thing and it turns out to be the radio,all joking aside try blowing out fuelline doesnt work??then take it to dealer for computer check

1992 chevy 3500 wont shift unless under hard acceleration


there is a transmission sensor on the top of your motor by the intake. it senses the accelerator or motor rpm's and tells the ****** to shift. its about 30.00 and easy to change. get it at any auto parts store.

Car starts and idols fine but once you get it to 4000 rpm it cuts out and then every time you hit the gas it will accelerate then cut out. it doesn't die out until you do this for a long time.


Ya know First i never drive a car at 4ooo RPMS cant remember when but anyway.
Check the Intake Air tube the goes into the air cleaner and throttle body for cracks and cuts and being loose. Fuel Pressure have it checked while you are driving to make sure your noy loosing fuel pressure at the high Rs. Ignition System Factory Plugs and wires no fancy discount suppose to increase horsepower stuff

Engine Cuts out at 3500 RPM


Sounds like you need to replace the MAF sensor its the unit on toyota vehicles that calulates how much Air intake is going into the throttle body and then sends a signal to the ECU of your car which adjusts your Fuel injector compensation. When your MAF Sensor is malfunctioning it will throw the fuel curves out of wack and cause your car to what mechanics call "lean out" or "running rich" its basically your getting too little or too much fuel at higher RPM's and the motor is choking from too much fuel and not enough air. Hope this helps let me know if it doesnt so i can continue to troubleshoot for you via internet
