Question about 2002 Toyota Corolla

2 Answers

When fueling my 2002 Corolla I find that the pump shuts off after 2-3 seconds. It is alomost as if the tank is full and forcing the auto shutoff. It as taken as long as 10 minutes to fill the tank. What might be the cause? How can I resolve? Is there a place I can go to see a diagram?

    It happens at all filling stations. I have tried several different ones. Same stations work fine on my other 2 vehicles but not this one....

    I assume the fill hose can be cleared by using a "pipe cleaner"... anything you suggest I stick in there?

    The anti-siphon = how can I check this?

Is this happening at all gas pumps, or just a particular pump?

It could be that your fill hose may be partially blocked, your anti-siphon flap is getting stuck

Check the vent hose thats connected to fuel filler neck may be clogged or bent.

    you could get underneath the car to see if it's bent or completely take the filler neck off and try to clean the vent you may or may not be able to clean with it in the car. or could purchase new one at 1AAuto.com

Hello I just bought a 92 accord Lx 5 speed. first i found out my fuel gauge gives me wrong reading it says is 1/4 full when is empty. my second problem is when I'm around 1/4 tank full the car shuts off...


I dont know why car shuts off when the tank is 1/4 full. Try replacing fuel filter first then maybe fuel pump. I think you probably have a stuck fuel sending unit. Here is a video of the location of the fuel sending unit.

Fuel pump runs for 20 seconds after shutoff It has been stalling lately


POSSIBLE - * IGNITION CONTROL MODULE *
In some cases the ICM will continue to send GROUNDS(power+/-) to your fuel injectors , fuel pump , ignition coil(s) after the key has been shut off. I just finished up a 1992 Corvette 5.7 l that would only fire when you let up off the starter . The ICM is going bad in my opinion and not responding to the PCM / ECM commands or a delay in response ( 20 seconds after shut off )

I can't find the location of fuel filter in my toyota corolla 2002 1.8 lt engine.


The fuel filter for a Toyota Corolla from 2002 and later is inside the fuel tank there is no external fuel filter. It's generally assumed that these filters don't need to be replaced unkless the fuel pump is replaced which is also inside the fuel tank.

Every time i try to but gas into my car the pump keeps shutting off eveyr to seconds.I ws wondering y this happens


The pump is shutting off because of back pressure. There are usually two lines going to the fuel pipe. The big pipe that the gas goes down and a smaller vent pipe that the air that is being displaced in the tank comes up. If this is blocked or is not working correctly , enough pressure can build up to shut off the nozzle of the gas pump. The gas nozzle thinks your tank is full.

Turned of car, will not start it turns over, but doesn't seem to be getting any fuel


Try A SMALL SHOT Of Starting Fluid Sprayed into the Snorkel
Intake @ Air filter. If it Starts and Does NOT Run After Burning Starting Fluid the Fuel Pump Has Failed. (My Personal Hunch) is (FUEL PUMP FAILURE) BE SURE TO ELIMINATE THE INERCIA SWITCH< it is a fuel shut off switch >>>>> WARNING: Do not reset the inertia switch button if you see or smell fuel.

  1. Turn ignition switch to OFF.
  2. Check for leaking fuel in the engine compartment, fuel lines and fuel tank.
  3. If no fuel is apparent, reset the inertia fuel shutoff switch by pushing the reset button on top of switch.
  4. Turn ignition switch to START for a few seconds, then to OFF.
  5. Again, check for leaking fuel.
LOCATION


  1. Open luggage compartment door.
  2. Remove two screws retaining inertia fuel shutoff switch.
  3. Disconnect wiring harness connector from inertia fuel shutoff switch and remove inertia fuel shutoff switch.
  4. To install, reverse removal procedure.

Is it because of the configuration of the fuel pipe that the auto shutoff doesn't work at the gas station?


Auto shut off on gasoline pump works on back pressure. If the nozzle itself is "kicking off" early, it could either be a bad nozzle or that the vent system in your vehicle isn't working properly. if the pump itself isn't shutting off, that is a problem with the pump, not your car. Some nozzles will work if held at a different angle or if they are not shoved down too deep into the vehicles fill neck. Problem in the vehicle is usually associated with a bad evap system valve as generally nothing happens to the vent line on the tank to the fill unless you had an accident.

Engin shutoff while driving


Possibly water in the tank and some other contaminant in the tank....possibly failing...clean filter is easing flow and pressure function from your fuel pump.
