Toyota Repair/Corolla 1994 1.8L


My corolla starts up but it dies out when the engine is hot or it stops running when i press the gas? Pls. help. Thank.

Hello, there are many things that can cause this to happen, most likely is an electrical problem, the first thing to do is to give it a good tune up, replace the spark plugs, distributor cap and rotor, the spark plug wires, air filter and fuel filter, if after that there is no improvement there is a more involved problem, check the air intake hose for cracks, check for any hoses that may be disconnected, if the check engine light stays on while driving let me know and we can go from there.
