My 1991 Toyota Corolla won't start

I have a 1991 Toyota Corolla DX 4AF-E engine, approx 88,000 miles which has been sitting for a couple of years. I have put in a new distributor, new ignitor, new plugs/wires/cap/rotor. I am not getting any spark (screwdriver in the boot and put across a ground, no spark when starting). I checked the error code and I got error code 12 distributor rpm (NE) signal may be lost during cranking. I checked the primary and secondary power on the coil and they are within specs. Also I assume the fuel pump is bad as I am not hearing any noise when the key is turned, but there is power (12v) at the white/blue wire going to the pump. No fuel is being pushed through, and am assuming there should be some fuel going even without starting? The EFI relay seems to be working; I have also jumped the Fp B+ to see if the pump would work.

SOURCE: 93 corolla 1.8 No start Blown ignition fuse

I had a prolem like this one time a while back. what i did was got the wiring diagram and checked everything that was running through that 30 amp fuse. on the one i was working on it ended up being an injector wire pinched under the valve cover and it didnt short out till the car was driven til it warmed up and expanded after the valve cover gasket was changed. hope this helps!

SOURCE: I have a 1991 Toyota Corolla. I have put new spark

you need to determine if you have spark or not. if not, is the cam turning? does it sound normal whan turning over? take the oil filler cap off, and see if cam turns while someone is cranking engine. if not, the timing belt is broken. if you do have spark, then the engine isnt getting fuel. you may need a shop to get further into it.

SOURCE: 93 toyota celica gt. engine turns over but wont spark

My experience with Bosch ignition system (found on european cars) is the spark control is sent by the ignition module. The ignition module has to receive an input usually from a crankshaft sensor. This is usually near the crankshaft pulley on many cars. I am currently working on a 04 Toyota RAV4 and it has exactly that. If your sensor wiring gets loose or a bad wire then the computer won't signal for spark. This may not be your problem but it sounds like it probably is.
(By the way on my Alfa Romeo it is a sensor around the bell housing that senses the teeth on the flywheel) Good luck!

SOURCE: I have a 94 Toyota Corolla 1.8. Engine wont start.

Check HALL sensor , it's probably inside the distributor , another name for it is a camshaft position sensor.

SOURCE: car wont start, not getting spark

crankshaft sensor, or computer on toyotas then it was usually the distributor or the computer, but the crankshaft sensor might be bad too thats what helps to get you spark.

Rear seal links and I only have 88,000 miles. why


Only have 88K??! That is a good amount of miles to have on a car. I know it is a Toyota but things do start to go and things start to leak after a while on all cars. Your car is 10 years old- Its not new anymore. Things will start to leak over time and this is not unheard of. it is pretty much normal. Fix the leak and do regular matinance and you will get another 10 years and anothe 88k miles out of it.

castrol 10-40 is good if you are over 150000 miles use the high milage oil
or the mobile drive clean 5000 is a little more reasonably priced and it will give you more protection cus most people dont change their oil at every 3000 miles exactly

1991 Toyota Corolla loud and sluggish


You need to do a compression test on the engine cylinders. It appears one of the cylinders is not firing and dragging the rest of the engine down in power. The compression test will show if one of the cylinders has a problem.
