Check if the fan is running when the A/C system is on, it should run all the time when the A/C is working......if so, turn off the A/C and you will see how it stop working if the engine is cool enough.

Ist running when the care is cool? If so it's the temp sensor that has failed.

When I turned key for last week it was hesitant to even engage the engine at all then would start fine. Then suddenly the one of the fans got very loud rattling sound. Later that day I stopped at a gas...


when you say "alternator fan" are you referring to the big fan in front of the radiator? I have to ask because alternators do have a cooling fan but it turns with the engine belt. and about your problem unfortunately there are so many things that can cause a starter to fail. bad starter, bad solenoid, bad battery, bad terminals, loose terminals, but if alternator was bad battery would have died, very quick.

1998 corolla , terrible rattle after starting, sometimes ignition would just click. this time the engine "diesled" or kept running even after I took the key out...is it an ignition problem?


Sounds more like an "engine running poorly, needs immediate attention" problem. I would first try to isolate that "terrible rattle" sound. Does it do that at every start-up? or just started? I'm just wondering if it's your starter noisy, or something internal in the engine. Have somebody listen to it when starting and see if you can find it. That is most worrisome. The clicking of the starter is very common to toyotas: the starter itself is almost indestructible, but the solenoid attached to it often needs servicing because the contacts inside tend to wear.
The dieseling you speak of is sometimes caused by too much fuel left in intake after shutting off. Engine keeps turning over and firing from hot carbon deposits inside your cylinders igniting the unburnt fuel. It could be from a rich running condition. Buy a can of liquid Seafoam. 1/3 in gas tank, 1/3 in oil crankcase, and 1/3 poured slowly into intake with car running at a fast idle (may need to bump gas a little to keep it from dying: keep your engine running. May smoke a lot, but its just your engine cleaning out, loosening up the carbon and burning it off. It will keep smoking for awhile, but after a few moments driving, it should begin to clear up. If your engine is in good shape, you may notice the difference immediately in better power smoother performance.

My 1998 Corolla front wheel drive with 1.8 liter engine is getting gas but will not start. Does it have a timing belt, or a chain?


The 98' has a chain, not a belt. The chain should last the life of the engine. I think you have other problems with her not starting, Have you checked for spark at the plugs?

The radiator cooling fans run continuously in my 1998 Toyota Corolla. Would this be the result of a failed thermostat, fan relay or something else?


Fan switch should be located in the upper radiator tank. Two wires to it. it works off the temp of the water.

I got code 116 on my 1998 volvo s 90 and my engine light is on


I do believe this is the ECT sensor code. This sensor for some reason only on the 960/S90 causes the car not to start. You will need to replace this ECT (engine coolant temperature sensor). On this model I think it is on the back of the head, a gray D shaped 2 wire connector against the firewall. If that is not case, then your sensor is located at the engine side of the upper radiator hose.

Toyota corolla engine stopped


hey, this isnt a solution (i dont think), just a comment, the corolla is equipped with a timing chain, located inside the engine with the cams, the belt that you see is a serpentine belt to run all other components like the altinator, water pump and ac. just letting you know. Hope this info is helpful!

1998 toyota corolla ac weak around town but works good on highway. is one condensor fan supposed to come on when compressor kicks on? right one never does and left comes on and off im asuming with engine...


You are correct. One fan comes on with engine temperature, and both come on (or are supposed to) with A/C operation. Not enough airflow through the condensor at low vehicle speeds will result in poor A/C performance. Check for voltage at the fan with the A/C operating (warning: the fans can cut your fingers severly if they start up, so keep your fingers clear!). If there is voltage, the fan motor is probably bad.
