Question about 1986 Toyota Corolla 2 Door
I was driving my car on the freeway when it started miss firing. I was only about a mile from my house so I kept going. One of the spark plug cables had come loose a few times while I've owned this car so I thought it was that again. When I got home I checked the cable. Everything looked fine. I noticed that there wasn't any antifreeze left in my car which was odd because I had just serviced it a week or so before that and I hadn't noticed any leaking.I checked the oil and everything looked fine. What would be your guess as to what went wrong? Head Gasket, Timing belt issues? And what would you do first to try and locate the problem? Do I need to start by taking off the head? Could it be something a lot simpler? I know that because all of the antifreeze was gone it had a risk of getting too hot and doing some more serious damage. I just don't know where to start. Thank you, Ben
Look 1986 what you can get $200.00 for it.I try head gasket fix for $ 35.00 works fine for last two years.

I think you should check your timing again, check the firing order of the distributor and if they are with there corresponding spark plug. Did you mark the connector or label them before disassembling. Maybe u left the timing in exhaust instead of compression

It is best to be systematic about this. It could be either the water loss or the overheating which is the basic cause, either one could come first.
- there is a test for combustion gases in the water jacket, from a blown head gasket. This will very quickly cause overheating, and the excess pressure will blow the water out the overflow reservoir. If the car has already overheated and died, this is unfortunately quite likely
- the temperature sensor in the block may have failed. This will prevent the fans from running when the engine overheats, and you can see this. The fans are not driven by a belt. P68....
- the thermostat may have stuck closed. You will have to get it out and test it, but this is not difficult. See p328
- this model of Camry has a plastic top tank to the radiator, which eventually cracks. Look there carefully.
- it may be that a radiator hose has gone soft and closed up. Check they are allowing good coolant flow.
- it could be that in a car this age that the radiator has silted up and is not allowing coolant through. Disconnect the top and bottom radiator hoses, when cool, and run water through from a garden hose to get some idea about that.

not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can
be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it
can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or
no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition
coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.
confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.
