Question about 1993 Toyota Tercel

1 Answer

Trouble starting & stalls when coasting

My 1993 Tercel has been having trouble starting.  It will randomly not turn over - there is literally no action (not even the clicking noise of the starter) when I turn the key.  It will usually turn over after about 6-8 tries.  Other times it will turn over right away.  It also sometimes stalls when I'm coasting to a stop with the clutch in.  Any thoughts?

Engine stalls while drving


Have the computer scanned for trouble codes. If a fault code is set, post them here, or google the code to get descriptions.
You should have the fuel pressure checked to see if it is at proper pressure. A weak or tired, old pump just may not be getting the pressure needed. There would be a specific pressure required for your car, but multiport injection is usually about 40-50 psi. If a shop tests pressure for you, they can find your required pressure, and then check for it..

Don't worry about the fan. I think you have a bad temp sender unit. Replace that and see if it helps the stalling also. If not, go for an engine analysis. They will check for trouble codes and check engine sensor functions.

It is for the Ambient light sensor that controls your daytime running lamps. Better get yourself a test light & multimeter & start checking resistance

1993 toyota tercel,idles up and down at a fast constant rate.but runs well otherwise,no engine light on,checked all vaccuum,egr,throttle bod


If it tends to cut off when no gas given but sometimes idles up very fast & then slows back down, probably the idle air control valve. If so, will have to be replaced to fix.

1993 lumina stalling


Free things to try: Take it to Auto Zone or some auto parts store and they can check the battery, alternator, and hook the thing to their computer to look for trouble codes for you.

Things you have to pay for: Take it to the auto shop and have them check the timing, spark plugs, and they can translate the trouble codes into language you understand.

1993 Ford Escort 1.9L Auto Randomly Stalls


I don't have the solution, but I have the same exact problem on my 1991 Escort 1.9L with auto with 120K miles. I replaced the IAC with no difference. In fact I unplugged it, and still had the random stalling. Also disconnected the EGR vacuum line...still stalled randomly. After it stalls it always starts right back up again. Sometimes it will act as if it's going to stall, but comes back to normal idle. Park or Drive makes no difference. Acceleration and all normal driving is fine. The next thing I was going to try is hooking up a timing light and watch to see if the timing light stops flashing as it's stalling, and/or hooking up a fuel pressure gauge somehow, to the fuel rail, to see if the pressure drops when stalling....to figure out if its ignition or fuel related.
