Question about 1990 Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

Corolla shuts off during left hand turns and hard stops

The last few times i have made a left turn and gave it gas into the turn the car has died. everything completely shuts off. no radio, lights, flashers, nothing. there is no sputter or any noises, it just completely dies 
After waiting 20-30 mins the car will sometimes start back up but it is hit or miss. i et it sit and run for about 30 mins and it had no problems. i have checked the battery, alternator, spark plugs. it is getting fuel from the pump 
When i try to start the car it will act like it wants to start but it doesnt turn over.

Wow. These are tough to find unless you are willing to roll the car up on it's right side and then check the power to the system. ..
Look for loose connections going through things that might move or the wires connected to the starter (sometimes the power wire is connected to the battery line at the starter solenoid).
Could also be at the ignition switch.

    That shouldn't cause the engine to shut off, no.

Remove the starter & inspect the contacts inside the starter solenoid housing. If they are burnt and/or worn, you will get this condition. Replace the contacts and the plunger, or replace the starter. I change contacts in my shop 3-4 times a week. Quite a common failure. The clicking noise is the plunger hitting one contact, but not the other, due to wear.

Car died

The steering is powered by the crank by a v-belt, so, this only works with the engine turned on. Check all the gas supply lines (and fuel pump) and the electrical power from the distributor.
