Question about 1997 Toyota Corolla
Car was having trouble starting, I replaced the battery and it still took a couple tries to get it started. The other day, put the key in the ignition, started it up and the engine was running rough. Turned the car off, took the key out of the ignition, and the car kept running.
Haven't taken it to the garage yet because I'm worried about how expensive this will be. Could it be the starter or maybe the ignition switch?

it sounds like either your having a short at the starter or the ignition switch is bad, I am leaning towards the issue being the starter, usually when the ignition switch is going bad there will be no click,

Your problem is a faulty starter solenoid relay.
It is staying in the POWER ON position.
The relay is located under the hood near the power distribution panel (fusebox) i believe.
Consult your owners manual or Repair manual for exact location.

1. You may have already done this, but call your dealer or get on-line and find out if there has been a recall on this particular item.
2. Has the starter or solinoid been replaced or worked on in the past?
3. Has any other procedure related to your starting system been performed?
4. As you have surmised, the ignition switch could have shorted, effectively "welding itself" to the positive terminal of the switch; or, similarly, the solenoid either mechancally or electrically, is hanging up and creating the same scenario.
This is potentially a dangerous situation, as it can cause an automobile to catch fire and burn itself to the ground.
Do not trust this situation If it has apparently corrected itself. A automobiles' starting system is a high voltage/amperage circuit. So much so,You can weld with it.
Do not trust this situation unless you are certain you have found the problem.

SOURCE: engine won't stop running
First of all;
1- If your engine fuel “gas" accelerator linkages not binding or wedges between
other parts of frame or engine!!!
Look for the above problem first, then if it's OK.
2- Your car engine timing could be ON ****** NOT on advance....
Timing should be always on advance (which is the correct
situations" """ Timing in advance start from "0”, "4" "6" ,"8",
IN ****** start from "0”, "4”, etc.
If you have improper TIMING (especially in ******) you'll have
mostly very high temperature most of the time, which will
eventually damage your engine AND it's (the temperature)
is a KILLER for your Automatic
(If your transmission is) transmission.
I hope I helped you.
