I had the same happen to my 94 Corolla, it cut off while driving. Change out your distributor and adjust idle before tightening down.

Ran out of gas in my 1994 jeep cherokee, put in 2gals and can't get it to start now. Cycled the engine several times and attempted to start again and still nothing. Not sure where to go from here


did you run out of gas or did the pump fail ?? have you bled it off on the fuel rail ,look on the fuel feed to the injectors and there is a tyre valve looking thing ,take the dust cap off and then push it in with a something whilst someone cranks engine and see if you have fuel coming through

My automatic car acts like it is going to stall


Definitely sounds like a fuel problem. I'd change fuel filter and check fuel pump. If pump is running it could still be partially clogged. Try a fuel rail pressure test with a knowledgeable mechanic.

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.

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!

Air cndition 2005 corolla


Hi. In order to find the leak, technicians use a device to find freon gas leaks throughout the system, I really don't know the price of the device, but it really works. And depending on where they find the leak ( hose, elbows, screws, assemblies, pump, etc.) they repair. It could range from $200-$800 or more on repairs. If you can find the device and buy it, it's really worth it, and you can do it yoourself because it's not difficult at all. Just make sure when you replace everything, Put one can of R134a gas with lube, so you can lubricate the parts, and the rest with normal R134a.
