Question about 1998 Toyota Corolla
I changed the starter and alternator on my car but now that it cranks I can only leave it on for 2 seconds before i cut it off. It stays at 4200 rpms why is that?

loosen the bolt that is holding the adjuster of the alternator. loosen the belt by pulling it and the alternator would slide in. remove and replace the belt.
do the reverse on installation.
remember to tighten all bolts of the adjuster and alternator after tightening the belt.
tnx 4 using fixya,

Disconnect the battery.
Remove the lower plastic covers to aid in access.
Remove the battery cable lug from the starter and the signal wire.
Remove the two 14mm bolts holding the starter on and lower out the bottom.
*sometimes it helps the clearance to remove the oil filter.

Hi there:DTC 1300 - Igniter Circuit Malfunction (No.1)
A DIS (Direct Ignition System) has been adopted. The DIS improves the ignition timing accuracy, reduces high-voltage loss, and enhances the overall reliability of the ignition system by eliminating the distributor. The DIS is a 2-cylinder simultaneous ignition system which ignites 2 cylinders simultaneously with one ignition coil. In the 2-cylinder simultaneous ignition system, each of the 2 spark plugs is connected to the end of the secondary winding. High voltage generated in the secondary winding is applied directly to the 2 spark plugs. In one of the spark plugs, the spark passes from the center electrode to the ground electrode and in the other plug the discharge is in the opposite direction, i.e. from ground to center electrodes.
The ECM determines ignition timing and outputs the ignition signals (IGT) for each cylinder. Based on IGT signals, the igniter controls the primary ignition signals (IGC) for all ignition coils. At the same time, the igniter also sends an ignition confirmation signal (IGF) as a fail-safe measure to the ECM.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.
Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.
