I have experienced this problem. When the motor is not getting petrol, remove the petrol cap, if you hear a rush of air there is a vacuum in the tank preventing the petrol getting to the carb. Possibly due to a blocked breather pipe on the tank. I fixed it by drilling a small 1,5 mm hole in the centre of the INNER part only of the petrol cap. This is too small to allow petrol to escape.

Have a corolla 1986 only 30,000 klm since new hasnt been started four 3years starts 5sec then stops what should I do


The previous answer is good - be careful with petrol - you may also need to top up the tank with fresh fuel - it tends to go off - if you can't put enough in the tank you may need to drain some off.

Toyota corolla verso fuel neck overflow


There is likely an issue with the vent control side of the EVAP system. I am also willing to bet the check engine light has been on since this problem started? This is a complicated system and i would recommend having a shop (either the dealer or an independent shop that you have experience with) take a look at this.

Clutch judder & vibrates, toyota corolla.


The problem is the clutch and the engine flywheel are heat damaged, this is called clutch "chatter" You must have the entire clutch replaced and the flywheel machined smooth again. The damage is caused by excessive slipping of the clutch on take off. Release the clutch asap when you start off, do not slip it for long periods this turns it nearly read hot.
