Question about 1996 Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

96' Corolla 1.6 Engine running erratic when cold.

My 96 Corolla stationcar when cold runs and jumps  like a cangoroo. What might be the problem? Have tried to spray cleanser into the airintake, but that did not solve the problem.

Take the cover off when its cold before starting - give a press 1/2 way on the pedal and release. Check that the choke plate flap is now covering the carby inlet. If it is, then the auto choke is ok. If its manual choke - check that it works on and off.

If the choke does not close when cold take it to a car by repair shop for servicing.

If the choke is working ok then open the choke flap and move the accelerator linkage at the carby, in the same direction as it moves when you press the pedal - you should see/hear a jet of fuel being sprayed into the carby down beside the acccelerator flap.
If no fuel there you may have a prob with your 'pump' on the carby or maybe the fuel pump from the tank is faulty or blocked.

There may be a problem with dirt stuck in your jets -if you can't strip it your self, take the carby off and in for service.

As you need 3 things for the motor to work - fuel - spark from the coil and airflow. check these out one at a time

ps. we have Kangaroos here in Aus

96 corolla alternator not charging


If the alternator is good, while car is running, disconnect positive cable from battery. If the car stays running the alternator is good. Test the battery for load, at the Auto Parts store. If the battery is good then your problem may be the charging wire from the alternator

I have a 1990 corolla carburettor. When its at normal operating condition the car jumps and runs rough. When you accelerate the car runs well. It only plays up when at idle. But when cold it runs very...


Check for a malfunctioning EGR valve. This valve is only selected to perform when the engine is warm. It has a vacuum diaphragm which can crack and lead to vacuum leaks. This will cause rough running. The EGR valve should be vacuum checked to see if this diaphragm is leaking. This valve can also stick open due to carbon deposits. When the valve sticks open, the fuel/air mixture is leaned out and rough running ensues. This problem is practically expected on a vehicle of that age.

1984 toyota corolla 1.6 engine. How do i adjust


Carbureted models have a fast idle cam on the throttle,It is a screw that sets against a movable part,called the cam,when the engine heats up,the cam will drop upon tapping the gas pedal.Set the carb,while the engine is cold,by tapping the gas pedal,then adjust the fast idle cam screw by turning it in,with the engine running.Start out by turning the screw in a full turn before starting engine so it will run,then adjust the screw as the engine runs.

How do you do an air bleed?


With engine cool, remove rad cap, top up coolant to 1" or 2" from top in rad. Start engine & turn your heater on, (not defrost) and let it run like that until it gets up to normal operating temperature. Keep an eye on fluid level in rad, & top up as needed. Let it run, until your rad fan comes on, & off, 2 or 3 times at least. That's telling you that the thermostat has opened & hot coolant from engine has returned to rad for cooling. Every once in a while while your waiting, rev the engine slightly for a few seconds, just to assist the circulation & help bleed air out. Feel the heater now & you should feel hot air coming out. Top up rad to 1'' or 2", put cap back on, all the way, top up your return bottle to proper mark/level, and you should be good to go.

1996 Corolla Auto Transmission problem


Hi. 2005 Corolla CE. It's normal. They tend to do this when upshifting form 1st to 2nd gear. No timing chain readjustment needed.

96 Corolla. Overdrive not working properly, if not engaging after 45mph constantly. If driving on the city, is normal, but not after 45mph, when the car is trying to engage overdrive in order to save gas and preserve the trans gears. If not able to get help at the dealership, find another one and explain them the situation.
