Question about 1983 Toyota Corolla Tercel
My car starts and warms ok but wont Idle. Once it warms up and the choke pulls off the idle gets iratic and it dies. I took the carb off and installed a kit in it , but it still does the same thing. Any ideas? Oh and I also put in new plugs, wires, distributor cap, and changed the oil and filter.

Have you pulled out the spark plugs to see if there are any tell tale signs on them.They are a good indicator of many problems that occur and can save a lot of time isolating the problem.They should all be the same colour.Is the air box and lid properly secured with no leaks or splits in the intake tube.Have you put injector cleaner in the fuel tank to clear up any possible dirty injectors.Therse a few things your problem could be including engine vacuum leak which you can find by lightly spraying carburettor cleaner around suspect places such as inlet manifold and around injector seals.

SOURCE: 1988 toyota p/u 22r carb,
Sounds like you have a bad carb. While the choke is on and active it sucks enough gas into the engine to keep it running. To test this problem run the vehicle until it is up to operating temp. Give it the gas and see if it does the miss and sputter thing. Then using a can of either of other flamable carb cleaner spray some into the air cleaner nozzle while the engine is acting up. If it smooths out for a few seconds the the carb is not gertting enough fuel at high rpm. rebuild the carburator paying attention to the fuel ports in case one or more are plugged up. Also look at the fuel level float and see it it is set at the proper height. It has been a while since working on a 22r carb, but I am not sure if thereis a fuel bowl window that you can look at to see the fuel level with a flashlight. it should be at or slightly above the dot on the glass window in the carb. If low it is a fuel problem. Also while working on it check the pressure on the fuel line at the carb. Your service manual should have a recommended pressure for the carb. Regards, rcampsr

Early Toyota fuel injection use a cold start injector, it only works when the engine is cold. It is located in the intake manifold. for the mean time you can turn up your idle by turning a flat head screw in your intake manifold counter clock wise . It could be a coolant temp switch for the injector that has gone bad also.

well you could try to get a vacuum gauge and see if your car reads what it supposed to and if you buy one it could tell you what it could be.
