Engine Cuts out at 3500 RPM

My 96 Corolla has 187,00 Mi on the original motor. It drives great with the exception of when accelerating, at 3500 RPM the motot starts to cut and/surge in and out. If I back off of the accelerator to abou 3200 rpm the motor performs as always. any idea where to start and look.

Try the high tension wires. a car that old may have frayed the harness and at revs the electrical impulses may be jumping or maybe check the distributor cap for cracks.

Sounds like you need to replace the MAF sensor its the unit on toyota vehicles that calulates how much Air intake is going into the throttle body and then sends a signal to the ECU of your car which adjusts your Fuel injector compensation. When your MAF Sensor is malfunctioning it will throw the fuel curves out of wack and cause your car to what mechanics call "lean out" or "running rich" its basically your getting too little or too much fuel at higher RPM's and the motor is choking from too much fuel and not enough air. Hope this helps let me know if it doesnt so i can continue to troubleshoot for you via internet

1992 chevy 3500 wont shift unless under hard acceleration


there is a transmission sensor on the top of your motor by the intake. it senses the accelerator or motor rpm's and tells the ****** to shift. its about 30.00 and easy to change. get it at any auto parts store.

200 Pontiac Grand Am over 3500 RPM loss of power


on almost all gm cars after 96 the engines were governed to not free rev over 4000rpm. when in gear and power braking the rpms stay lower cause of the load on engine. when reving above 3500 rpms the computer cuts back the timing and fuel to reduce engine damage if left to free rev. hop that helps.

Corolla 96 motot starts to cut and/surge in and out


firstly remove the inlet fuel line at the filter and and blow down line with a compressor ,removing fuel cap first,if this doesnt work then it could be fuel pump pressure of air flow meter ,but iam often wrong with this sort of thing and it turns out to be the radio,all joking aside try blowing out fuelline doesnt work??then take it to dealer for computer check
