Have a compression test done to check valve condition as if the timing belt was bad then the timing may have altered .

Replacement of the fuel pump is very easy. Here is what you need to do:
Pull uup on the front edge of the rear seat bottom.
Lift & remove the rear seat bottom.
Locate & unbolt the inspection cover on the rear floor.
Disconnect the wire harness at the connector.
Remove the tubes going to the sending unit/fuel pump
Unbolt the 8 or 9 bolts that hoolds the unit onto the top of the tank;
Pull the entire assembly up & out.
Quite easy. Hope this helps; and, thanks for choosing FixYa.

Rule 1 ....WD40 is non-flammable. It used to be an effective starter spray for diesels. Unfortunately it now contains a fire retardant to prevent accidents....so the rev you were looking for wont arrive.
It does work well with easy-start/ether though.
I suspect you found a vacuum leak and sucked WD40 into the intake....If u think u did you'll need to clean your plugs.
A strobe lamp to check the spark would be a good idea. Also if a lil squirt (VERY LITTLE) of easy start doesnt produce at least a backfire, your spark is out.

SOURCE: 1999 Tercel. Timing belt/water pump interval change?

Hello tinaromano1: The factory specification are to replace the belt every 90,000 miles in severe service. I would recommend to replace at 90,000 no matter what the service would be. Keep in mind should the belt break there is always a chance engine damage may occur. Should you need further help just ask. Thank You for using FixYa. Roger

SOURCE: 2005 toyota corolla light comes on then goes off for a few days e

i had the same codes and the same "bucking" on my 05 Corrolla. I had my mechanic replace the solenoid (not cheap) and the light stayed on & the codes were the same. He thought my computer needed to be reflashed after the fix. I took it to Toyota where they ended up switching out the computer...free of charge.

Apparently 05 Corrollas have a "bulletin" on the faulty computers. they cause the check engine lights to light up & give those readings. It is not a recall because it is not a safety issue.

Ran out of gas. got gas, splashed a little gas in the carb? (air inductor) looks like a carb under the doghouse. now, won't start, wants to but won't keep running. 1994 dodge primetime van.


Replace fuel filter. when you ran out of fuel you picked up water in the bottom of the tank. Turn the ignition switch on and off several times to prime the injectors before trying to start. The water in the tank may have damaged the fuel pump. Do not damage the starter. If it does not start right away, riding the starter is not going to help matters. Investigate the fuel problem.

My car ran out of gas, now it will not start


If high miles, it may be a fuel pump. Fuel pumps usually go when gasoline is low and pump gets too warm. This may mimic running out of gas when there is a gallon or two of gas still left to draw but needle reads empty. Have someone put their ear to the gas tank while you turn on the ignition switch. the pump should run for 2-10 seconds with key on and not cranking.

If you don't hear the pump run, then investigate further for a failed pump.

Ran out of gas now wont start 2001 sebring?


I assume you put fuel in the tank. This car uses a small high pressure fuel pump to pump gas to the engine, this pump is located inside the fuel tank, the tiny pump depends on the gas it sits in for cooling and for lubrication, if you run out of gas you quickly damage the pump, in fact any time you run below 1/8 tank you cause it to run hot, so you might get away with running out of gas once or twice by you always run the risk of the pump freezing up from lack of lubrication and cooling when you run out of gas, which is what you have likely done.

first replace the filter this is the least expensive repair..when u ran out of gas u may have sucked up (dirt) in the fuel tank.....if that doesnt work bring it to a service repair station an have a fuel pressure gauge hooked up to it....this willl tell u if the fuel pump is starting to fail...when u run low or out of gas the fuel pump can over heat an cause premature failure....u should never allow ur gas to go below a quarter of a tank since the fuel is what cools the fuel pump

Car ran out of gas. put gas in it now it wont start


The fuel lubricates the fuel pump, so if you ran completly out you may have burned out the fuel pump. First you can do a fuel pressure test, it should be 41-47 psi, if low replace filter and check again. If still low verify pump is getting power then replace. Thanks

check electric fuel pump operation ( located in the fuel tank ). Occasionally a fuel pump will burn out when running out of fuel, due to the fact the pump runs DRY for about 30 seconds till the fuel stops flowing out of the injectors, the engine quits, simultainously losing oil pressure which FINALLY shuts off the fuel pump. Sometimes TOO LATE. Hope this helps

Ran out of gas


Hi you need to change your fuel filter on your car as it is probably clogged with dirt as the car ran so low.
It is fitted under the car near the fuel tank.
Change your fuel filter first then check the fuel pump fuse as it may be blown as well if the pump was not able to pump fuel.
It should be a humming or hissing sound at the tank.
