I have an 88 Toyota corolla. It was running very rough. Acted like it was loading up, but when you put it in gear and pressed on the gas it would hardly run. It was running for about an hour to warm up. I shut it off to check oil and then it would not start. Car turns over fine but will not fire. It acts like it wants to start but it doesn't. I put a little starting fluid down the carb and it still would not fire. Any help?
1. Could also be bad ignition timing or a loose Distributor. 2. Check for fuel pressure to the carb (take off fuel line after fuel filter to engine) .... work back from there if no pressure (could be a simple blocked fuel filter.

There is currently a recall going on for this problem. You can likely get your money back on the prior repairs as well. See this link http://www.toyota.com/recall/corolla-matrix.html. On the left-hand side, you can click to take you to put in your VIN and see if your vehicle is included. My 2007 vehicle IS included, and I just had the check engine light come on and have been experiencing rough shifting for about 6 months. When the light came on yesterday, it was extremely rough jerky shifting. The light went off today. Took it to Autozone and got same code P2716. Toyota has assigned me a case number, but I won't get a call back until Monday or by close of biz on Tuesday. This problem can cause your car to not start, or to shut down while driving. YIKES! The person I talked to at Toyota acted a little too nonchalant about the whole deal. Telling me to just wait for the call that I will get. She said most dealers would not have the part needed to fix this. According to what I have read. That is the reason why Toyota is not sending out the notification letters to the affected parties until mid-September. Check out all the info and good luck. I am a little bit p.o'd about this right now. - Natalie

Try this: Remove the two (primary & secondary) vacuum diaphram covers & inspect the vacuum diaphrams. If there is any evidence of distortion at the diaphrams, expect to get the condition that you are describing.
