You may have a bad alternator. Car died while driving, either gas or fire. if you know about MAFS your should know how to check starter function by jumping solenoid to large post of battery. Check for 12V at the large post on starter. Then try to jump the two connections. If car cranks, I would check ignition circuit for faults.

The problem may be the gas that sat in the carburator. Gas goes bad faster in smaller quantities. Have a look inside to see if you have "gummed" up passages, or jets. Don't forget to change the fuel filter.
Good luck. (I have an 89, and it's a great truck, 300k miles on it.)

CAR STARTS THEN DIES OUT, WHEN IT IS RUNNING WHEN YOU GIVE IT GAS QUITS RUNNING. CHANGED FUEL FILTER AND AIR FILTER HAVE A HALF A TANK OF GAS


you could have a bad MAF sensor...try unplugging it and driving it around and see what happens. also make sure airfilter is clean. check fuel pressure if above does not work! the fuel cut valve may be the culprit. if it is the maf sensor, you can go to any auto parts store and buy a can of maf sensor spray to clean it. just follow directions on can. do not hit center of maf sensor with the straw on spray can, for these buggers cost over 100.00 new. unless you get one from e-bay or a junk yard. good-day! and check all vacuum lines good.

  • The MAF (Mass Air Flow) Sensor is dirty or faulty. Note: The use of "oiled" air filters may cause the MAF to become dirty if the filter is over-oiled. There is also an issue with some vehicles where the MAF sensors leak the silicone potting material used to protect the circuitry.
  • There could be a vacuum leak downstream of the MAF sensor. you cleaned that but it could be fouling out you could also have this happening
    • Inspect all vacuum and PCV hoses, replace if necessary
    • Check for a dirty fuel filter and proper fuel pressure

What does a major tune up for a 2004 chevy impala consist of? What should be done and needs to be done?


New spark plugs, oil and oil filter, transmission flush and fill, fuel filter, air filter, coolant flush and fill, clean throttle body plate and bore, clean the MAF sensor, replace any loose or cracked vacuum lines, PCV valve, new air filter, new battery.

99% of the time all you should ever need for a tune up is new spark plugs, and a clean air filter and throttle body. But since your inquiry indicated "major" I gave it more critical thought.

The knock sensor NEVER causes a drivability problem. DO NOT change it. Instead, clean the MAF, Mass Air Flow sesnor that's on the air intake tube near air cleaner. It is coated with varnish. Spray with carb cleaner several times and gently, gently brush the wires. Theya re glass coated. Be careful.

Then disconnect battery for 2 hours and then reconnect and drive for 0 miles for computer to relearn engine contrils.

How do I clean the MAF on my 2000 toyota corolla?


You first remove the wiring connector, and then remove the 2 screws that holds the MAF in place. Remove the MAF, and, with a flashlight, look down into the bottom of the sensor. You will see 2 small silver wires, and a little bulb. The MAF part is the 2 wires. The intake air temperature sensor is the samll 'bulb'. Look to see if the 2 wires are fuxxy, or otherwise dirty. If so: using a can of commonly obtained "brake cleaner" (find this product at any auto parts store), spray the interior of the MAF until the 2 silver wires are clean. Please do NOT use compressed air to clean the MAF, the air pressure can and will brake the wires, and that will render the MAF inoperative. After it is cleaned, let it air-dry, and then replace it and reconnect it. Drive the vehicle for a few miles for the computer to see the new values.

try to have your intake manifold and air filter cleaned. Also, try to replace the fuel filter. these are usually the culprits for the problem that you are experiencing.

1994 toyota corolla has a runs rough at idle and lacked power, would stall sometimes at stop. Also has low idle,try timming and new plugs, and checked distriburtor cap and fuel filter and fuel regulator


I have a similar problem with one of my Toyota Corollas. It's a 95 model with the 1.8L engine (7A-FE, automatic). But unlike yours, it has plenty of power while running. Here's what it does. Occasionally the engine misses. Sometimes it will die. This is most likely to happen when you start the car and put it in reverse and start rolling without giving the engine time to adjust. I've been told by some customers that it will die sometimes when coming to a stop. But this has never happened when I drive it. I don't think it's a fuel issue because the car runs just fine when it's running.

Here's what I've tried so far:

  1. Replaced spark plugs and wires.
  2. Used gasoline additive fuel injector cleaner.
  3. Checked air filter.
  4. Checked vacuum hoses for leaks.
  5. Replaced PCV valve and hoses.
  6. Cleaned the air intake and throttle body with carburetor cleaner.
So far there is no change in the problem.

What I plan to do next:
  1. Check the throttle position sensor.
  2. Check the MAF sensor.
  3. Adjust the idle via the set screw.

After that I have no idea what to do next if the problem persists. The check engine light is not on so I don't think there are any error codes. Will let you know.
