2011 Toyota Corolla
Filled car with gas immediately had a flashing
check engine light and car would not crank At first
got it cranked long enough to get it into the shop
Had the codes read showed codes for a misfire in
cylinder one and three they suggested a new
computer had a new computer put in it still wouldn't
run properly wouldn't accelerate Took it back to the
shop they ran diagnostics on it said that the spark
plugs Needed replacing and the gas was bad so
we had to fuel system flushed put new gas in it had
new spark plugs put on it it also has new coil packs
two new O2 sensors both upstream and
downstream and a new alternator on it still will not
accelerate properly goes dead when I decelerate or
stop can put the car in neutral cut the key off crank
car back up shift into drive and will accelerate but
only up to 60mph no higher please help!
Most times when this happens at fill up with no or hard start its the evac valve stuck open and the purge cannister is full of gas and floods the engine and may need cleaned out and new purge canister filter and a new evac valve.
Sounds like you have a clogged catatlic converter or muffler. Do this test at night start vehicle and let idle for about 5-10 minutes then look under vehicle at the converter and muffler if any one starts to glow red it is clogged.
Also check the exhaust manifold coming from engine it will glow red also if clogged.
Alright so tonight we flushed out the throttle body and disconnected the battery ran great until I tried to get over 65 again checked the exhaust manifold and catalytic converter no red glow any other suggestions I've been running the car to burn the fresh treated gas through it it's a little better but still not where it needs to be
Take your vehicle to a parts store like auto zone who will scan the codes on the computer for free it will tell you why check engine light is flashing.
Same codes as above cylinder misfire on 1 &3 and getting help has been like pulling teeth for some reason they think because I'm female I'm stupid
You may have to replace the fuel injectors to those cylinders.
Causes for misfire are: Faulty spark plugs at 1 & 3 cylinder,- Clogged or faulty fuel injectors 1& 3, - Faulty ignition coils 1 & 3, - Fuel injectors at 1 & 3, Harness is open or shorted, - Fuel injector 1 & 3 has circuit poor electrical connection - Ignition coil 1 & 3 harness is open or shorted, - Ignition coil 1 & 3 circuit poor electrical connection, - Insufficient cylinder 1 & 3 compression, - Incorrect fuel pressure, - Intake air leak,
Thank you thats exactly what I need I appreciate it so much it's nice to finally get a straight answer
