Question about 1997 Toyota Corolla
Driving on freeway acceleration went out.Will not turn over when starting.
Does it turn over but doesn't fire?
If this is the case, the first thing you will want to do is check to see if your check engine light is on.
If it is on, the codes need to be read to pinpoint exact problem.
The check engine light will turn on anytime there is an electronical problem or sensor problem.
If the light is not on: than it could be a couple things:
Fuel Pump - To diagnose, turn key to on position (not start) and listen to see if you hear the pump turn on. If you hear the pump run, than it is not the pump.
You can also test the fuel pressure with fuel pressure tester on the fuel rail.
It may just be as simple as the fuel filter. They are cheap and easy to install..I would replace the filter FIRST before proceding to anything else.
It may also be plugged catalytic conver.
Fuel pump relay should also be checked with an ohmmeter. This should also be checked before testing fuel pump itself.
