my 94 corolla has a cutting off problem after getting to normal running temperature. you guys said to spray starter fluid into it.  If it didnt start that there was no spark.  Well there was no spark.  So what do I look at now.

if you can scan it might help to tell area of trouble, without you guess most likely may be crank sensor or coil pack breakdown when warm [test with heat gun] might help


ND offers parts online. You can find your ignition and replace the thing. I found them because parts store items were not fitting well and after several warranty replacements, I had enough. That one had the ignitor style in the distributor. Rock auto had separate pieces. The toyota testing book was at our city library, I made photocopies. ran tests and ended up getting all the parts store garbage on one list and the ND parts came all as one. it's the way to go.


If you like E-bay there is a guy on there who does several. they come all new for cheap, but they are not really OEM quality. He does offer lifetime. If you want to reduce costs, and he is very conscientious and emails and calls you to be sure you have it and it works. The ND parts just work perfect because they are the real deal. An engine that gets hot on you can damage every little thing. so maintaining the cooling system and fans is important.
