08 Toyota corolla runs fine for 5-10 minutes. The car then dies. It will start back up immediately!! But will not rev. Let it sit for 5 minutes does the same thing.

Could be a bad ignition module or water . When it starts ... does it run rough .. or when you try to rev does the engine begin to miss and sputter? Does it run at idle if you don't try to rev it up?

It revs smooth. And it will idle up to about 2500 with pedal to the floor. But it's still smooth no vibration of any kind.

Yes it runs find at idle

Do you have any warning lights on at instrument cluster? Like CEL. a little yellow icon resembles a motor? Some cars even spell out CHECK ENGINE...? Or anything?

Nope. No codes. I was thinking maybe throttle position sensor might quite working.

OK then forget that what I posted. Didn't expect a reply so quickly. I need to do some looking in to this, OK?

I know about two cars: Corollas and OLD Ford trucks. I will do my best.

Lol. I work on trucks for a living. But this car is driving me crazy. I have checked to make sure most of the electrical components I can get to that they get juice.

Idk I can check in a few minutes just walked in.

Meantime, does your red led security, anti-theft light stop blinking when the car is running for that short period? And you may well be on the right track about the TPS

DId you try unplugging your MAF? Unplug it and start the car. Will it now rev?

Does it die as if you turned off the key or does it do a short stumble before dieing? When you turn on the key ... do you hear the fuel pump run for about 5 seconds then stop?
