Question about 2001 Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

Stalling and check engine light

I've been noticing over the last month or so that my 2001 Corolla stalls when starting in the colder mornings but it'd be fine. Now that it's colder this week it got a little more problematic and my check engine light came on this morning on the way to work. It just hit 145,000 mi and about 2 years ago when it hit 100,000 I replaced the catalytic converter so I'm pretty sure that's not the trouble, seems typical that every time it hits a certain mileage point something needs changing. Have read a few other questions regarding this and it seems the typical problem is the MAF sensor, I have a good mechanic and was wondering about how much this would cost me? And also am wondering if I can wait a day or so to have it looked at?

Waiting a day or so won't be a problem..it just to be what you're willing to put up with...and for cost? it should only be one hour labour to get it diagnosed...at least that much..if you choose to do the repair, then you're looking parts plus labour..depending on what it is...it sure sounds like it it fuel related....like pump...if pump is diagnosed faulty, then please change the strainer with it (if it has one) and for sure the filter at the same time..always.

My '99 Ford wagon has been dying in idle for 7 months. Now it won't start, clicks when I turn key but won't start. I've noticed the "theft" light has been on for about 2 weeks when I'm driving, no idea...


Sounds like the anti theft system might need to be reprogramed. Anti theft will shut the car down and will not let it turn over and will cause the car to cut out. Also sounds like you need an alternator. Sounds like the probelms are related. You need to have the computer scanned and get the codes so you can have a better idea of what the problem is.

NTERMITTENT STALLING AND STARTING.


A very common for these problems is a leaking fuel pressure regulator. This leaks gas and causes extended crank times, stalling, and check engine light.
