1993 Toyota corolla Vehicle turns on, put it in gear, turns off. What do I do?

Asked by Jul 03, 2015 at 01:38 PM about the 1993 Toyota Corolla DX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just finished replacing the valve cover
gasket, spark plugs and wires. Pcv valve
broke as I put it in. Put a new hose to the
right side of the engine ( idk what it called
or what its for). I'm out of ideas. Please
help?

1 Answer

The DX will be the 1.8L 7A FE engine. We need to know more, especially about this hose. A PCV hose is big, compared to other vacuum hoses, 7/16 or even ½ ID. Most vacuum hoses are smaller, pencil size or smaller. Could not fit a pencil inside. Which do you mean? And the PCV on the valve cover...right? Any way you can post a picture? Does it idle smoothly or rough...then just quits when you put in gear? Correct me if I'm wrong but I think the '93 DX only offered a 5-speed manual trans.. and are you sure about PCV valve? That does not break easily.
