Engine Mechanical problem
1989 Toyota Corolla 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 165000 miles
I was having a problem with my corollas yesterday. I was driving it and it would start to "hiccup" when I would press the gas pedal. It was like the more I hit the gas the more likely it would stall. It's happend before and would be fine once it got going.
Well I tried to start it today and it would start but turn over and run rough. When I would try to rev the gas to get it going it would stall again.
Now when I start it I can feel the motor trying to get going but it wouldn't turn over. Once I let go of the key it would stall.
I do have to tell ya a few things about the car. I know it has a bent valve but that hasn't been a problem that I couldn't handle.
I know I need to get the exhaust replaced. Perhaps the catalic converter is to stuffed up?
I was thinking it could be something with th fuel line/fuel pump, because of the stalling only when I would hit the gas.
Then I was thinking I haven't had a tune up in about 10 months. Could be spark plugs.
What would be your opinon?
have the same problem?
