Question about 1991 Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

Stalling My Corolla stalls everytime I try to accelerate. I had been getting it to go just by keeping my foot on the brake and pressing on the accelerator, but I'm worried about future damage I may be doing as the car is an automatic. I can slow down, but not too much because as soon as I accelerate, it will stall. Thanks for your help.

    I have same problem with 1990 Corolla. If it sits without running for more than 48 hours, it will start hard (only 3 of the 4 cyclinders will fire, or maybe just two) and then when it finally is running on all cylinders... it will stall when I accelerate from a stop.

Good Day,

There could be several causes for this. If I were you the first thing I would check is the timing. If the timing is off enough it could cause this. After timing is checked and/or adjusted the next thing I would check the MAP(Manifold Absolute Pressure) Sensor. I can't remeber if a 91 is fuel injected or carburated, but if it is carburated I would check the carb jets and up the idle adjustment just to see how it would run. Do you have a check engine light on in the car? If you do it's more than likely a sensor either the MAP or TPS(throttle position sensor). If you do not have a check engine light on it's got be timing or something else mechanically.

Here's a place to start.
Let me know about the check engine light and I can assist further.

Hope this helps

I have a chevy s10 2.2 2003 truck and one day it ran about five miles. then stalled. it started back up idled fine but put it in gear. stalled again. had to get towed home replaced the fuel filter,truck...

When you press on the gas when the truck is running, does it rev up?

Did it die while driving down the road (foot on the accelerator) or when idle? - If so, try cranking it and get your RPMs up to 1500-2000 RPMs and put it in drive (with your other foot on the brake). See if it will continue running if you never take your foot off the gas.

Another place to look is your IAC, or Idle air control valve. It is bolted to the back of the intake manifold, and can be removed and cleaned. It is usually the cause of most Honda Idle problems.
