my 94, 1.6, 4 cyl. toyota corolla drives or runs for about 20 minutes then will just cut off with no signs or symptons. So i replaced the catalyc converter, oxygen sensor, radiator, water pump, thermostat and engine control module. Plus a couple fuses. Car runs great, but after about 20 minutes of running, will cut off. HELP
and now that i replaced the radiator, water pump and thermostat, my heat dont kick in. it blew hot before
someone pleasehelp me, i am spending alot of money on this car.
there are no check engine lights on. i can drive the car and it runs great. then with no warning at all she just cuts off. after about 15 or 20 minutes, you can start her back up, but will cut off again when at normal running temperature. No gages read hot. car just shuts off
When it "cuts off", squirt some starting fluid in the intake. If it fires, you know that it's a fuel related problem. If it doesn't fire, it means there is no spark. Stop throwing parts at it until you determine what is causing the problem.
if there is no spark--then what?
Check ignition coil for power out, if no power out check the wires going to the coil for power. (use an ohm meter) if power to the red wire, replace coil, if no power, check pick up coil in dist. & replace if faulty. You can look up proper way of testing online. good luck.
