Question about 1994 Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

Accelleration onto highway

1994 Toyota Corolla- 205,000 miles. Runs great but when accelerating onto highway the acceleration doesn't kick in. its great for intown driving, but when trying to accelerate quickly to higher speeds, or up hills the power just isn't kicking it like it used to. Like the engine isn't getting enough power or something. The gear seems to be fine- and I had the clutch replaced at 100,000. Could this be a fuel system issue? or am I looking at a tranny issue?

1994 toyota corolla 1.8 automatic runs good on idle but stumbles when accelerating


The Toyota of your year is equipt with a map sensor,it is located on the firewall with a vacuum line leading directly to the intake manifold, This sensor measure engine load and adjust fuel accordingly.This is definetly the problem,make sure the vacuum hose did not come out,Look at the underhood emission sticker for it,it Toyota has a different name for it it might be called boost sensor or pressure sensor.

I have a 1989 Toyota Corolla, 5 speed manual;


I would look at the fuel delivery system. Change the fuel filter if it hasn't been done lately. Also get the fuel pressure checked. I don't have the specs but it could be that your fuel pump is getting worn and occasionally has trouble pumping enough fuel to the carb. It's also possible that your carb may need to be overhauled. They do wear and get build up in the pasages over time. Also check to see if your warm air valve in the air cleaner is working. It is possible that your carb is icing up in the cold weather and it is more likely to happen at highway speed.
If you need to get the carb overhauled take it to a shop that specializes in this type of work. You will be glad you did when you get it back.
Hope this helps.

Pushed acceleration on freeway to 50-70 miles does not run smooth and shakes.


Could be any number of things, lets eliminate the transmission. Put the car in park and throttle the engine, is it snappy then? Or does it slowly rev up? If it still runs funny or isn't snappy, the tranny is not the problem. So it could be, weak fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator, or a ditributor problem. Could be a sensor to, but I've had 4 corollas and have never had a MAF sensor or others go out yet. I have had problems with the items I listed.

TOYOTA COROLLA KICKS AT 10 MILES PER HOUR WHEN ACCELERATING


Hi. the car is kicking due to the 1st to 2nd gear upshift in the transmission. Corollas are famous for this kind of behavior when it comes to the transmission. Some of them kick when upshifting, some of them downshifting, And some of them make a humming sound when they do so. It doesn't mean the trans will fail. Just make sure you do the usual fluid checks, and as long as it still look purple, you'll be fine.
