Question about 2006 Toyota Corolla

2 Answers

I have a 2006 corola. It sometimes just quits while driving it. I pull over and shut the key off for a couple of minutes then restart and is ok for awile. The check engine light also comes on when this happens. This will reset itself sometimes after a few starts.

I have a 2005 Corolla which seems to be doing the same kind of thing that you car did. The ECM? Computer was still under warranty on my car. Toyota states that have put that computer under warranty for 8 years or 80,000 miles which ever comes first. Toyota replaced the computer at no charge to me and even paid for the towing cost. After I got my car back it worked ok for a couple of days but then the same problem happened again. I just took my car back in and they changed the front Oxgen sensor and it seems to be running ok. I hope this helps in some small way. Smiles!

Let's try the simple first and replace the fuel filter soon as we can, The fuel filter may be at the end of it's life and is causing the engine to quit working when the flow of fuel is restricted. Note the fuel pump is working harder trying to keep the fuel pressure up and may over heat causing it to fail also which mean a costly replacement of the fuel pump in the gas tank. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help.

I have a 93 dodge stealth that will start right up but after a couple minutes it just shuts off. And it wont restart for 20-30 min, it will restart only to shut off again after a couple of min.


I'm not positive, but I think your electronic ignition has something called a pick up coil that goes bad. Sometimes the engine may just die while driving, or just not want to run when it starts. You also may have a distributor cap that Mitsubishi made that has circuitry inside the cap, so replace the cap too.

Sounds like the starter.If you can locate it,tap on it with a hammer 3 or 4 times and try to restart.It may take several tries but should eventually start because starters don't quite fail 100%,they just kind of get stuck.If you can't find the starter,call a couple of parts stores or a dealer,someone is always willing to tell you for free to attract your business.It should work and you need a new starter.I put in a used one a couple of years ago and no problems yet,but the decision is yours.Good luck!

2006 Chevrolet Equinox won't start, security system is engaged, how do we restart it?


Make sure the doors and trunk,and hood are shut,open them,and shut them .activate the anti theft,wait about 1 minute,and disarm it,see if it will start,if not,the key fob may need to be relearned,try turning the key on,leave it ten minutes,then turn it off,and right back on,then wait ten minutes,and turn it off,and right back on,do this a total of three times,,30 minutes,then try and start.

Shuts off while driving have to jiggle key sometimes to start


The ignition switch is the most likely cause. The contacts inside the switch get burned and quit working.
