I drive a Corolla 1.6 - 1993, 4afe engine with approx 200K kms on the meter.
It was running absolutely fine!
I drove it over the weekend - it was fine. I drove it to work for 2 days - it was fine. I drove it to work the 3rd day, when I came back after work - it wouldn't start!
The battery is good - headlights, radio, key less entry all work. I can turn it to START and the engine cranks for as long as I want and as many times. The " Check Engine" light is off - still I jumpered the E1 and TE1 to check any codes - but none retrieved. But it just wont start!
I had the same problem 2-3 months back - when it would crank properly but would not start. Then, I towed it to the garage who checked every thing to be okay; yet asked me to change the alternator, the spark plugs and then temporarily replaced the ECM also - but nothing helped. Later I put my ECM back and the car started running.
This worked for 2-3 months and now again the same problem.
