Pickup died while driving it


You need to put a fuel pressure tester in the fuel rail and then determine weather or not you need the fuel pump replaced,if this is not the case then the throttle position sensor is likely the culprit.

Ran out of gas 90 toyota corolla fuel injection


Sounds like air in the fuel line. Try turning the key ON and pumping the gas pedal (it may take 10-15 times) and then try to start the car. You need to force gas through the fuel lines to dispel the air it was pumping when the car ran out of gas. If it doesn't work the first time, let it rest and repeat by pumping the gas. Best of luck!

Corolla shuts off during left hand turns and hard stops


Wow. These are tough to find unless you are willing to roll the car up on it's right side and then check the power to the system. ..
Look for loose connections going through things that might move or the wires connected to the starter (sometimes the power wire is connected to the battery line at the starter solenoid).
Could also be at the ignition switch.
