Transmission problem
1996 Toyota Corolla 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic

Hi,

I have 1996 toyota corolla. It suddenly stops when I easy the accelerator and speed near zero mile.

and all the indicators like battery, engine check, etc are come up.

But when I shut off and try to restart the car it will start the car.

Any help would be greatly appricated.

Thanks in advance.

Rana:
Can you get the car to go at all? When it runs, is the check engine light on? Has the fuel pressure been checked?

Let me know.

Hi Joe,

Fuel pressure is ok, and when it runs there is no check engine light on.

Waiting for your kind early reply.

Hi again:

Something is causing it to shut down, but without the check engine light, it makes it more difficult. If I had to guess, I would say MAP sensor, but without a code, again that is a guess. IF you are sure the fuel pressure is good, here is what needs to be done. The vehicle will need to be checked with an onboard diagnostic scanner while it is being driven and acting up. THe scanner should identify what is causing the problem. I recommend this because there is such a long list of items that can cause this to happen. If you start replacing parts, you could have hundreds of dollars into parts that are not needed.

I wish I had an easier answer for you, but this is the reality of it.

Please let me know if you have other questions, or need any information, and thanks for using 2carpros. Com.

An aftermarket direct fit is around 150.00. Figure about 1 hour labor to install.

Let me know if you have other questions.

Thanks for using 2carpros. Com and I wish both you and your family a great holiday.

If the light came on, the computer has a trouble code stored. It most likely deals with the work that was done based on your description. They may have forgotten to plug in an O2 sensor or something simple. What to do is this. Take the car to a nationally recognized parts store and have them scan the computer for trouble codes. Most will do it for free, so there is no money out of pocket for you. Let me know what code they get and then I'll be able to help you identify where the problem is coming from.

If you have other questions, let me know.
