Question about 2006 Toyota Corolla

2 Answers

No fuel flow

I have 2006 toyota carrola. My 17 yr old son was driving and was at a friend's house the car was low on gas and he put some gas from a gas can in it. He then drove car a 1/4 mile down the road and it just quit. It turns over fine. It is acting like it is not getting gas. I took the air hose off and poured a few drops of gas directly in the fuel injection port and the car started and ran as long as fuel was in the injection port. once that was gone the car would suppter out again and would not start. I think it's the fuel filter, or could it be the fuel pump?

Its likely the filter, but you can check the pump easily by removing the back seat (the lower part) and the pump cover should be there on the floor. Now listening carefully have someone turn the key to the on position and you should have about ten seconds to hear to pump running...just put your ear on the cover and it should be more than loud enough to hear it remember you have limited time to check before the computer shuts the pump for the filter....replace it....its relatively cheap and very easy to remove and install. the likely problem was particles of dirt or rust or etc... in the can. But it could also be entirely coincidental.... I hope my advice helps.

Fill it up with fresh gas!
Old gas won't fire so you'll have to add something with a high octaine like fuel injector cleaner to get it up to firing range.
I hope it was old gas and not an oil gas mix!
Try it!
Good Luck!

1989 Chevy Blazer 2 yr old fuel pump new in line fuel filter runs then dies when putting in gear then starts back up?

If you are saying,the truck is at idle,then you select drive and the engine slows/almost dies then picks up engine speed back to correct speed,then you most likely have a slow/defective/gummy IAC ( idle air control ).A replacement may be necessary but I would clean it first.It is found on the side of the fuel injection housing.After removal and cleaning or replacement it may have to learn a new position for correct air flow and that may take a minute or two with you sitting stopped with the truck in drive.

Will a massive air flow sensor cause my truck to jerk while driving it an seems like it want take the gas

It's Mass air flow sensor, and it could. I had a 20 yr old car that ran very poorly extreemly rough, would only run with foot on the pedel. Turned out to be exactly the Mass Air flow sensor. But I had to take it to a specialist to find the problem.

Car wont start

If the engine cranks the starter is doing its job.
You would need to check for fuel pressure at the injectors.
Its possible the pump was clogged up or overheated when you were driving it low on fuel. The gasoline keeps the pump cool and lubed.
The only fuel filter for your model is inside the gas tank.

My 2001 4Runner stopped running immediately after refueling and after my son letting it get real low in gas. My son stated thet the car had exhibited this behavior earlier during the day, but he was able...

When you say you put the fuel in the "carb"and it started but won't stay running: where did you put it ? Your 2001 4 runner would be fuel injected so i think you might have put it in the throttle body, but i haven't had much luck getting a fuel injected car to start that way. Do you have a check engine light on and/or have you had someone put an obdII code reader on it? If no codes are present and you are certain that it is fuel then I would first check fuses and relay's for those related components, make sure your fuel pressure is what it should be(35-55 psi) for start/ idle and finally most late model security systems (pass-key,coded key) disable fuel injection system, just make sure you are using the master key for the vehicle. Hope this helps !

86 toyota cachked fuses mry stalled while driving

try cleaning out the carb, replacing fluids, and then put a fuel filter on it, because all the 1980-1988 toyotas didnt have fuel filters on them. Just go buy one cheap from your local hardware store, and install it on your fuel line.
This same thing happened to my 1987 toyota 22r pickup truck.
