1995 Toyota Corolla 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 250000 miles
never had any trouble at all with this car. Going down the road at about 75 mph in 5th gear the car lost power, but all electrical stayed on, for about.75 seconds to 1.5 seconds the car produced power again then cut back off and it is manual so I tried down shifting and tried giving more gas, then tried turning key off, then back on, all this to no avail. I have plenty of fuel, but when I turn the engine over it is not firing at all, or is not getting fuel. I removed air intake cover after the filter at the intake itself and opened the throttle up some and sprayed in starting fluid, but I had no results. Then engine turns over great, but I am not getting any gas, or gas getting ignited. Please help a lost poor disabled fat boy who is in a wheel chair from an accident when working with the DOD. I have very little oney, and scool is starting and I have 2 kids that have to be in school with supplies in 3 days. I have tools, and grw up in a garage, but I worked only on older cars than this, 69 goats, 76 ford 4 whel drives with 460 engine, 84 pontiac 2000, 87 camaro 2.8 liter, and don't forget the ever popular 77 grand safari station wagon. So as ou can see my knowledge is a bit older even though I am not but 37 years old, it was my dad's garage, and I started there on full serve at the age of 9. I think the problem is no fire, but I am not sure how to find out why. I checked as many fuses as I knew how to, but the relay's I am not sure how to check, and I don't have a diagnostic machine. What should I do. I would greatly appreciate any help. Thank you.
have the same problem?
