Question about 1990 Toyota Corolla

Open Question

I have a 1999 crystal light toyota corolla. i have realised that my corolla consumes so much fuel despite being a smaller engine (1500cc). to my understanding a corolla can travel for close to 1000kms on a full fuel tank before the next refill. everything on the car has been changed; fuel filter, air filter, oil and oil filter and even the spark plugs. when i fill the fuel tank to the full level and travel for about 200kms, by the time i reach my destination it is on half tank. so please help on how to solve the problem

SOURCE: Sluggish performance and engine light - added new plugs and oil

You need to check for engine codes to see what is wrong. Bring it to a parts store for a free scan for codes. The check engine light indicates a problem, probably the emissions system, which is causing the poor performance. The parts store will plug a hand held scan tool into the cars diagnostic port (usually located under the dash) and 'read' any codes stored in the cars computer. They can them tell you what code #'s come up, what they mean, and how to correct the problem. If you have any questions after that, post them here w/ the code #;s for further help.

SOURCE: I have a Toyota Corolla/91 1.6 L 4 cyl. DX When

Check that the ignition timing is set correctly. Use a timing light and set the timing to 10 deg Before Top Dead Center (BTDC). Check the fuel pump pressure output. If you still lack power, it could be that the exhaust system is restricted.

One test you can do is to remove the oxygen sensor. With the sensor removed, start and run the car. The exhaust will be loud with the sensor removed, but see if the engine's power is improved. If it has greatly improved power, the exhaust pipe has a restriction. A very common restriction is that the catalytic converter is internally damaged. Changing the catalytic converter will be necessary if this is the problem. The internal honeycomb of the converter can melt down and turn to **** or it can break down into a coarse sandy substance that can clog the converter exit.

High consumption of fuel


If you have serviced the engine, changed oil and oil filter and air filter and spark plugs and cleaned the carburettor or cleaned your throttle body and injectors, and its still heavy on fuel then try the following. Adjust the carburettor air and fuel. Take off the distributor cap and clean the rotor and spark pionts in the cap of carbon build up by means of light sand paper. Same applies to the spark/ high tension leads and coil lead metal connection points. Check distributor timing as well. If the engine smokes, do a compression test. If results are beneath factory specifications, remove cylinder head, replace the valve stem seals and re-seat the valves and or replace the pistons and piston rings. Basically engine overhall

You should have this problem scanned as soon as possible. Usually when the engine light comes on, it means you have a problem But if it blinks its a warning that u should pull over and shut it off to prevent damage to your engine & its parts. It sounds like a fuel injection/emissions problem. I ignored this problem once & it melted my catalytic converters!
