WON'T START

1989 Toyota Corolla • 4 cylinder 4WD Manual • 120,000 miles

1989 Corolla All-Trac Wagon 4afe engine Manual Tranny

Engine turns, won't catch. Upon letting off the ignition it will sometimes try to kick and then die.

Problem came on suddenly. Sitting at traffic light, engine suddenly died and exhibited the problem.

Have replaced the fuel pump. No change. Spark plugs are new and properly gapped.

No strange noises from engine.

Do below to determine if its a fuel or spark problem

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine at least 3/16 away from ground -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, Do you hear the fuel pump come On when you turn key on? If not check fuel pump fuse and fuel pump relay if so, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it.
