  1. Corolla 7th Generation (1993-1997)
    Hi folks, I’m having trouble where the car doesn’t like to stay running after a good rain. I’ve replaced the distributor cap and rotor, spark plugs, checked throttle position sensor, replaced o2 sensor, checked for vacuum leaks, basically I’ve been poking around to find the cause of this for a...
  2. Corolla 7th Generation (1993-1997)
    My corolla is a 1996 automatic 1.6L 4A-FE. It started bucking and losing power at high speeds The timing is about 40 degrees advanced at idle, according to a check with a timing light and the ECU (using one of those OBDII code readers). It starts up, idles fast (around 1500rpm) and sounds...

    Distributor is leaking on this 96 camry 4cy. Should I replace it with one from eBay ~$40 or is there a way to rebuild it??

    Hi all, 95 Camry 2.2L/auto I just replaced the OEM distributor with an aftermarket unit because the old one was leaking oil internally and the coil was bad. With the new distributor installed, it doesn't kick right over any more. It takes 5-10 seconds for it to start, but once it does it runs...

    Hello. First off, thanks to ToyotaNation for helping me so much with this car. It's truly my favorite car to drive! My 1991 Wagon 4AFE recently had to get the distributor replaced. Got a new Lucas branded ignition. Symptoms: Engine will lose all power if I press the pedal beyond a certain...
  7. 89-95 Toyota Pickup/Hilux
    Hi Everyone, New here, but not to auto mechanics. I have a reasonable amount of mechanical knowledge but often leave more complicated tasks to professionals because I do know my limits :) I inherited my mother's 1994 Toyota Pickup with the v6 engine (3vze) and almost 224k miles. I recently had...

    5MGE Timing 86 Cressida, I pulled the head to clean the intake/exhaust runners and valve seals. Also deleted the remaining emission equipment while there *the EGR system*. I set the crank and cam timing and slapped the distributor in and it all went to hell for me. I've been trying to follow...

    Ignition coil / signal generator / pickup test, "NE+ to NE- 1630-2740 Ohm" Where are NE+ and NE- pins? I have a 96 Corolla 7AFE with a very rough idle. at a stop it feels like a cheap motel vibrating bet. Once idle picks up it is fine. This happens hot or cold. I'm pretty sure the IAC is fine...

    I'm about to replace the distributor on my 1996 4 cylinder due to the oil leaks (and the 327k miles). I notice the new distributor (Richporter / Spectra TY49) only has one circular bolt hole, no adjustment slot. Looking at the one on the car, I'm not seeing an adjuster plate, unless there's...

    I have some oil on the bottom of my 96 5SFE distributor and I was thinking about replacing the external body o-ring. But researching this a little, I should probably get a total rebuild kit to also replace the shaft bushing and oil seal. I haven't pulled the cap to check for internal oil...
