I dont know about the timing, but the fuel filter is in the engine compartment bolted to the firewall on the driverside. I just changed mine and it took me a while to do it. Its under the brake cylinder.

Did you check the spark plug wires? Mine would die almost every time I stopped and would not speed up properly and it turned out to be bad spark plug wires.

Why do you think the timing is off? is your car a manual or auto? your fuel filter is in the tank.

If your vehicle is fuel injected, Which I suspect that it is; It is HIGHLY DISCOURAGED to pump the accelerator pedal while starting--- This can cause a fuel flooding condition.

Toyotacorolla 2007

The electronic fuel injection system in your 2007 Toyota Corolla is an extremely technologically advanced, computer controlled, engine fueling system that consists of hundreds of parts, sensors, solenoids, relays and electrical circuits. It also consists of a computer-controlled pump as well as high-pressure lines and fittings that deliver the fuel from the fuel tank to the injectors. The computer system that controlls your fuel injection system has nearly 100,000 times the computing ability of the computers that were on the Apollo space craft that put put man on the moon.
To say something as simple as "fuel injection problem" and expect a viable "solution" for your problem is like saying "water problem" at Niagra Falls and expecting somebody to fix it for you.

What kind of "fuel injection" problem? Have you tried interfacing with the computer that controls your fuel injection system? If so, what did it tell you? If not, that would be a real good place to start.

My 1984 toyota corolla ran out of gas now it wont idle

Quick explanation of your fuel system:

An automotive fuel system consists of everything between the fuel tank and the carburetor or fuel injection unit. This includes the tank itself, all the lines, one or more fuel filters, a fuel pump (mechanical, electric, or both), and the carburetor or fuel injection unit.
With the exception of the carburetor or fuel injection unit, the fuel system is quite simple in operation. Fuel is drawn or pumped from the tank through the fuel line by the fuel pump, which forces it through the fuel filter, and from there to the carburetor/injection unit where it is distributed to the cylinders.

So with that info...try first to clean your spark plugs.
Next, replace your fuel filter.
After that, depending on a carburetor/fuel injection, try an additive that cleans the injectors. For the carburetor, try a half of can of what is called "Seafoam". It comes in a metal can available everywhere, including Walmart. It is worth the $6-8 and also will "dry" out your fuel from water. Very good product.

After that, get back to us and let us know how your Toyota is running.

Ran out of gas 90 toyota corolla fuel injection

Sounds like air in the fuel line. Try turning the key ON and pumping the gas pedal (it may take 10-15 times) and then try to start the car. You need to force gas through the fuel lines to dispel the air it was pumping when the car ran out of gas. If it doesn't work the first time, let it rest and repeat by pumping the gas. Best of luck!
