The first things to check are the air filter and the oxygen sensor, which are regular maitenance items and can cause your exact problem. Make sure that you do not have any vacuum leaks. If changing/checking these items does not solve your issue, then the following sensors may also be the problem: Throttle Position Sensor, Air Intake Temperature Sensor, Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor. Make sure your tires are properly inflated and that the brakes are not dragging, icluding the emergency hand brake. If nothing else seems to help, check the fuel rail pressure to insure proper operation of the fuel pressure regulator.

I have a 1995 Toyota corolla and I recently noticed I had a gas leak I sealed the hole with JBL epoxy to hold me over until my new tank arrives but it looks as if there is oil mixed in with the gas .


Keep checking the oil level and the transmission fluid level to make sure they stay full, but there should be no oil in the gas tank.
There may be water, however, and it may be brown like oil.
Water will sit in the bottom of the tank and make rust underneath the gasoline, since gasoline floats on water.

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.

1991 corolla,gas gauge not working,thought it could be float in tank,someone told me it could be a switch under backseat forgot what switch was called?


Hello

I have never heard of a switch under the back seat that would turn off your gas gauge. I agree with your first thought, it is the float in the tank.

best of luck

Every time i try to but gas into my car the pump keeps shutting off eveyr to seconds.I ws wondering y this happens


The pump is shutting off because of back pressure. There are usually two lines going to the fuel pipe. The big pipe that the gas goes down and a smaller vent pipe that the air that is being displaced in the tank comes up. If this is blocked or is not working correctly , enough pressure can build up to shut off the nozzle of the gas pump. The gas nozzle thinks your tank is full.

2000 Toyota Corolla DX Gas Light Stays On


Yes, I believe the Sending Unit is probably bad. I presume the guage works, it is just that the light stays on. The light is getting an electical connection because the ECU thinks that gas is low. It is not getting the signal from the Sending Unit. I hope this assists you, if you need further assistance p[lacvse come back and we will continue as needed.

Do i need to drop the fuel tank in my 1991 toyota corolla to replace the fuel pump?


Unless there is an access panel above the fuel pump, yes you will have to drop the fuel tank. Look at the location of the fuel tank and how that corresponds to the vehicle. This will tell you where to look for an access panel. If you must drop the tank, then siphon as much fuel as possible out of the tank before removing it. You can purchase a very inexpensive hand pump at most auto parts stores.

98 Corolla stalls or stumbles when cold


It sounds like you may have picked up some small debris from the bottom of the gas tank when you ran it empty. You may need to run a fuel/injector cleaning solution through the next tank of gas to clear the debris and consider changing your fuel filter too. Sea Foam is a great fuel additive and I recomment trying it full strength. Hope this helps!
