Question about 1986 Toyota Corolla 2 Door

1 Answer

86 corolla has no power on acceleration

Was driving home and engine lost power and cut off, would turn over but not start back.Later, still would not turn over, so i changed out plugs,plug wires,cap,roter,button, car still would not turn over.Started turning the distributer and got the car to turn over and idle but has little power when given gas. Also when car is put into drive it wants to cut off and has. Have been told my carb is bad but im really wondering if i dont have a timing belt issue.or maybe both. car has 235k miles and right now money is an issue so i have to make sure i get it right. will be thankful for any help or suggestions. thank you

I'd be tempted to pull cover off & check belt too, or a quick compression test, to see what it tells me.

Lost acceleration, steering and engine cut off. Oil light came on. What could be wrong?


Oil light came on? Yikes! That's about the worst thing that can happen to the engine. Don't try to run the engine or you will completely ruin it. Can you check the oil level or have someone else check it? Did something happen that would have caused the oil to leak out of the engine (like going over a curb and bottoming out)? Did you have someone or a shop change the oil? Maybe the oil drain plug wasn't properly replaced.
Get the proper type and quantity of oil into the engine before you try anything else. Good luck and I hope it's not too late.

1995 Chev Silverado 2500 5.7 ... was running fine, then began missing while idling. A few minutes later, would not shift into overdrive for lack of rpm's and accelerated slowly. Was towing a trailer. ...


I stopped to assist a gas powered Winnebago stuck on the highway a while back. The engine would run but not produce much power or rpm's.

The problem turned out to be a plugged muffler which seriously reduced the air flow to the intake system and as a result the power and ability of the engine to rpm's or power.

As modern day vehicle engines are computer controlled there could be systems that are not functioning properly...which should log a code and activate a warning light on your dash board. ODBII diagnostics is always the first step to take when trying to isolate a fault.

84 uses a carburetor I believe. I had this problem with an 86 corolla with a 4ac carb'd engine. Somebody noted that it may be my floats in the carb, could have filled with fuel just enough so that they dont fill the bowl with an adequate amount of fuel to sustain around a corner or hard braking.

Its probably most definitely fuel related.
