Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a Toyota Corolla AE 101, 1994 model with a 4A engine (using Carberator). When I go a few
the car would cutting off like it don't have any gas (but have). The compression rings and carberator
changed, now the car has a high rev, not idling properly, overheating and when I sometimes put it in
reverse it would cut off. What is the issue here?

1 Answer


Is the throttle plate sticking open? Throttle cable snagged? Return spring too weak? Vacuum leak? Could be one of those things.
