1994 Toyota Corolla 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic
Please help my first DIY to my car.
My 1994 corolla 1.8L stopped starting in the morning two weeks ago. Battary was good. Car could crank but never start. Before this happened, my car was running very well without any problem. I followed the procedure of troubleshooting and found out that either ignition coil(out of spc, 3kohm detected, but shoud be 9-18kohm) or igniter had problem because no spark at all in each troubleshooting step. I replaced them all. During repairing, I crank Engine to TDC and mark distributor to the engine block, and also mark rotor's postion. I am pretty sure or assume that I installed back correctly. This really took me more than a week to get into this point. Finially, I jump power from my other car which has very good battary condition. I sat into the car, turned ignition key to "ON" position to have car self-check though, as usual, I could hear a familiar sound after 4-5 second( don't know what it is but it was always like that since I bought it). I turned key to start engine. However, engine started for 2 seconds and then stopped immediately. I try several times. It just did something. Even I hold ignition key on start position after engine started, engine dead anyway. I also try press gas while I started engine, unlucy, It just did something, start 2 seconds and stop.
Any idea what went wrong with my repairing.
Thank advance guys
