Question about Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

Hi, I have a 1985 toyota corolla ae82 engine and it has recently been in the garage for idle problems initially. I first took it in running rough and the machanic traced it to the auto choke which he fixed and noticed the points were incorrectly set so he fixed that and changed the timing and drive belts. When I picked it up it was bunny hopping badly so I took it back and they found a "vacuum advance hose" had come off which they then put back on. My only problem now is that it idles extremely high at start up and (I believe anyway) quite high when you are driving too. My question is should I just leave it ? My fuel consumption is high so it will cost me more. Is there small adjustment i can make? The revs are over 2000 at start up.

If that 2000rpm is start up from cold,,,its still a bit high! but only a bit,,,should be nearer 1500rpm cold out of gear,,,,
when warm it should run at about 850---900rpm-----out of gear-
950rpm for an auto out of gear,,
in gear an auto will drop to about 850rpm so that the motor wont stall when holding the brakes down i would take the car back,, but they may wont it over night so they can set the revs up from cold,,i have a felling that auto choke is still playing up a bit

    I think it''s fine, you just need to adjust you idle back down (now that the choke actually works)

I just changed the engine in my Corolla and it's idling rough and sounds bad.


sounds like you have not connected the wiring correctly, don't think there are any free manuals, you could ask in the toyota owners club.

1985 Toyota Corolla Intermittently runs rough-no power


Try this: Remove the two (primary & secondary) vacuum diaphram covers & inspect the vacuum diaphrams. If there is any evidence of distortion at the diaphrams, expect to get the condition that you are describing.

YOU HAVE AN EARTHING PROBLEM MOST LIKELY A FAULTY EARTH STRAP BETWEEN THE ENGINE BLOCK AND THE CAR BODY [THIS IS A SEPARATE THICK CABLE OR FLAT BRAIDED CABLE WHICH IS ATTACHED AT ONE END TO THE ENGINE BLOCK - USUALLY ON THE CYLINDER HEAD, AND THE OTHER END ATTACHED TO THE FIREWALL OR CHASSIS RAIL] IF THIS WIRE IS BROKEN OR THE ENDS ARE CORRODED OR LOOSE THEN YOU WILL GETTHE SORT OF SYMPTOMS YOU DESCRIBE.

RUN A NEW CABLE FROM ANY POINT ON THE ENGINE BLOCK TO A PART OF THE BODYWORK AND SEE IF THAT CURES YOUR PROBLEMS
