Question about 1996 Toyota Corolla
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.
I have the same problem but it happens sometimes at any RPM. I have tried the following and still no solution: There is no MAF on this years model.
changed spark plug wires
changed spark plugs
changed rotor cap
tried 2 different whole distributors
cleaned the fuel injectors
by passed the egr valves
even unplugged the car starter before these test in case it was a problem
Gas filter has been changed

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
