Question about 1996 Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

My 1996 Toyota Corolla acts like it is not getting enough fuel. It stalled out and I had to pull over. I managed to get it started and made it home. Is this the fuel filter? fuel pump? Is there an easy way to check? Thanks, Single Mom in Tulsa

First thing to do especially since your not sure is to replace the fuel filter. Should be done every 25K - 30K also check the air filter you could have a plastic bag stuck in there or lots of wet leaves.

After that it's best to get engine diags done by a professional.

Car started but after 5 seconds stopped. Cannot start it again. It turns over but acts like there is no gas flow. It may be the fuel pump?? Any suggestions. Where is the fuel pump located?? Thanks Jim

this sounds like the fuel pump may have quit, the pump is electric and located inside the gas tank, there may be an access plate under the rear seat cushion, most have this plate, if this year doesn't the fuel tank must be pulled.

here is the part number for the original factory style pump

DENSO Part # 9510001
OE Manufacturer $128.00

I replaced a fuel pump in my 1996 Toyota Corolla And am now having problems getting it started and keeping it running. Could you offer any assistance

you may have a bad crank sensor or even a bad speed idle control sensor first though youll have to make sure that you have enough fuel in the fuel rail if not you may have an air pocket and you need to bleed the rail you do this by taking the end cap off that looks like a tire valve cap push the button stem until you get all fuel you may have to crank the engine a few times to achieve this.if you get all fuel then you should be ok.

I have a 2002 toyota corolla that likes to stall - taken the car to a mechanic twice in the last 6 months - they can't seem to find the problem - any suggestions or ideas?

when it stalls does it start right back up or do you have to wait awhile. if it stalls and wont start check for spark at the spark plugs and for fuel pressure. a common problem is the ignition module. it could even be a dirty throttle body if it is stalling at the stop sign then starts right back up. Check your air filter and the throttle body. If the throttle body has a bunch of carbon build up your car wont get enough air at idle. same will happen if you have a super dirty air filter. If the ignition module is bad the symtoms are usually that it wont start for a while till it cools down then will restart.

My 2001 toyota corolla stalls out when cold

It is registering engine too lean due to either too much air entering the engine via an intake leak or by an inaccurate reading from the MAF.

Often on these cars, particularly if they have used Toyota brand air filters, the MAF collects fuzz over time from the air filter.
As this 'fuzz' collects on the MAF element, it acts as an insulator and skews the airflow reading for the ecm; it sees less air than is actually going through, so when it checks your mixture on the way out of the engine it realizes that there is more air than it thought was going in.

Pull your MAF out of the air hose (two philips screws) and clean it with non-chlorinated brake cleaner or "MAF cleaner" available at your local parts store. Look in there with a flashlight, you will see a little coiled wire covered in little bits of fuzz before you start.

Do NOT touch the element, just use the cleaner to blast it clean. Let it air dry completely before reinstalling.

Clear the code and call it a day!
