    Timing belt... that was supposed to say. It has jumped a cog, and is running out of time. Best way to be sure is to aim a timing light at the timing marks on the crank. If they're jumping around bad, it's the belt. They should stay pretty much in one place.

Vehicle dies when coasting after acceleration, or when coming to a stop.


The first thing to try is to get a can of throttle body cleaner from Autozone or Walmart and clean the throttle valve and the idle speed control valve, they get get gummed up and that causes the annoying stall.

I have a 1990 Toyota Corolla 1.6 ltr,base model...i can start my car and it will run in idol in either park or neutral. But when i put it in any gear reverse,drive,or low. i have put new spark plugs new...


I would start with the idle air control valve. First remove the air ducting between the air filter box and the throttle. This will give you some room. You will need a cloth and some WD40 lubricant spray or carb choke cleaner spray. Clean the opening of the throttle and the outside of throttle plate until it is like new. Using your fingers press against the top of the throttle plate and rotate fully open. Continue to clean the throttle opening behind the plate as far as possible. Now remove the electrical connection and unscrew the two Philips screws securing the IAC valve to the side of the throttle body. Clean everything thoroughly; access ports and valve seat etc. Reassemble and the fault should be resolved.

If you have spark, try changing the fuel filter. If you don't have spark, get back to me.

1994 toyota corolla has a runs rough at idle and lacked power, would stall sometimes at stop. Also has low idle,try timming and new plugs, and checked distriburtor cap and fuel filter and fuel regulator


I have a similar problem with one of my Toyota Corollas. It's a 95 model with the 1.8L engine (7A-FE, automatic). But unlike yours, it has plenty of power while running. Here's what it does. Occasionally the engine misses. Sometimes it will die. This is most likely to happen when you start the car and put it in reverse and start rolling without giving the engine time to adjust. I've been told by some customers that it will die sometimes when coming to a stop. But this has never happened when I drive it. I don't think it's a fuel issue because the car runs just fine when it's running.

Here's what I've tried so far:

  1. Replaced spark plugs and wires.
  2. Used gasoline additive fuel injector cleaner.
  3. Checked air filter.
  4. Checked vacuum hoses for leaks.
  5. Replaced PCV valve and hoses.
  6. Cleaned the air intake and throttle body with carburetor cleaner.
So far there is no change in the problem.

What I plan to do next:
  1. Check the throttle position sensor.
  2. Check the MAF sensor.
  3. Adjust the idle via the set screw.

After that I have no idea what to do next if the problem persists. The check engine light is not on so I don't think there are any error codes. Will let you know.

1987 toyota 22r truck surges after idleing while


Just off the top of my head, guesses: Given what you've already done and the high mileage, could be carb, but I'd start with fuel filter and a good additive like Sea Foam. Also, you might want to replace the PCV and any other sensors which may be suspect.

1991 Corsica dies after being put in gear.


Hi

You need to get two things checked. Ignition and Fuel.

Ignition: typically in this order ... Start off from sparking plugs ,,, move to leads (get them changed) and on to the ignition coil if there is no spark coming out of it. In case of fuel, the carb needs a clean and a good carb cleaner or fuel treatment (added to the fuel tank) wont do any harm. You should open up the carb filter. Remove it and change it if its dirty. Start the engine rev it up and while its revved up (throttle flap open) spray the carb cleaner or in this will clean the carb cleaner from inside. If the power gradually increases its a clear sign that you need to open up the carb and get the jets cleaned. properly.

Hope that this fixya will get you on the roads soon :)

Regards :)

How do i fix the timing on a 91 corolla (its an automatic and fuel injected)


I dont know about the timing, but the fuel filter is in the engine compartment bolted to the firewall on the driverside. I just changed mine and it took me a while to do it. Its under the brake cylinder.
